Focal has presented its 1000 Series – a range of in-wall and in-ceiling speaker and subwoofer options with levels of performance and install flexibility. Three years in development, this flagship range embodies the essence of Focal: speaker science, technology implementation, and French design and manufacturing.

Made in France in Focal’s workshops, the 1000 Series offers a discreet alternative to traditional hi-fi and home cinema set-ups, with no performance compromise. Each speaker is an ‘innovative, flexible design – with both the installer and end customer in mind’ comments Focal.


  • Raises integrated speakers to ‘new performance levels’, through use of flagship speaker technologies – including Beryllium tweeters; ‘W’ cones – as featured on Focal Utopia home speaker range.
  • Allows for combination of Focal’s traditional and integrated speakers.
  • Flexible design: Wall speakers feature adjustable driver – angle them in any direction towards the optimum listening position.
  • Simple to fit: Ceiling speakers use Focal’s patented ‘Easy Quick Install’ system, for tool-free integration.
  • Scalable subwoofer integration: Wall speakers can be paired with 1, 2, 4 or 6 subwoofers (while using only one channel of amplification), to match the room size and SPL levels desired. Speaker cables provided for speaker/sub connectivity.
  • Magnetic, ready-to-paint grilles for the visual integration.
  • Suitable for the majority of locations: In-wall speakers offer performance despite being less than 10cm deep. For even greater flexibility, optional on-wall frames will be available soon.
  • Premium in-ceiling models use same form factors as popular Focal 300 Series, allowing for install upgrades.
