The Kanta's Beryllium tweeter took 2 years to develop and is manufactured entirely in-house.Beryllium is 7 times more rigid than titanium or aluminium which results in a sound wave propagation 3 times faster than titanium and 2.5 times faster than aluminium creating acoustic transparency and impulse response that offer a near perfect sound.Following 5 years of development Focal's Flax cones are made of high quality flax fibres enclosed by 2 thin layers of glass fibre.Flax is twice as light as fibreglass and has very low elasticity which is ideal to increase the rigidity of the sandwich structure.High velocity of sound and internal damping via the flax fibre's inherent qualities add to the performance of the diaphagm to produce the Kanta's richness of reproduction in the midrange register and their tighter bass.
