The three-way floorstanding loudspeaker, Scala Utopia Evo, is the latest version of this key loudspeaker in the Utopia range. Sporting a new terminal board, Scala now offers bi-amplification, allowing you to personalize your sound even more. Scala integrates Focal’s latest technological innovations, particularly within the midrange speaker driver with its TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) suspension and its Neutral Inductance Circuit (NIC). These enhancements have resulted in a reduction in distortion, to provide an even more precise and detailed midrange register combined with Scala’s undisputed musicality.
EXCLUSIVE MEDIUM REGISTER It was natural for us to capitalise on the research carried out in 2008, which resulted new and exclusive innovations, particularly in the mid-range register.
TMD suspension: this technology provides a linear frequency response curve between 1 and 4kHz, while significantly reducing distortion in this range. The mid-range register benefits from remarkable neutrality.
Neutral Inductance Circuit: stabilising the magnetic field was a challenge to overcome, in order to avoid harmonic distortion and intermodulation. The research carried out enabled Focal’s engineers to come up with an extremely stable magnetic circuit.
BI-AMPLIFICATION Scala Utopia Evo now offers bi-amplification. Bi-amping is now possible by separating the bass and mid-range/treble registers, just like the line’s two top-of-the-range loudspeakers.
The most discerning music lovers will be able to fine-tune their sound by personalising the registers depending on the sound architecture they want. For this reason, the loudspeakers are equipped with a double terminal board.
COMPONENTS TESTED IN REAL CONDITIONS Our engineers selected the very best components on the market, choosing them from among the finest brands around after testing them in real conditions.
All the internal wiring within the units is crafted in France. While looking at the wiring aspects of these new loudspeakers, we decided to increase the wire gauge of the cabling by 20%. The results can be heard immediately: the sound is even clearer and even more natural.
Finally, for the bass register, the acoustic wadding lining we included inside the enclosure has been thickened for even tighter bass with more control and increased precision.
