French audio specialist Focal has unveiled Theva, a versatile new range of loudspeakers for music and movie use, sporting interiors-friendly cabinet designs.

The range, which replaces the Focal Chora line-up, makes its debut at Axpona (Audio Expo North America), April 14-16.

The new range is suitable for a wide range of applications. It includes the Theva N°1, a compact bookshelf monitor; Theva N°2, the new 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker with an ultra-slim profile; and the Theva N°3, a classic 3-way floorstander.

For home cinema installations, there’s the Theva N°3-D, with upward-firing driver for Dolby Atmos duties; the 2-way Theva Center centre speaker, and Theva Surround speakers.

All Theva models feature Focal’s exclusive Slate Fiber speaker drivers, which include recycled carbon fibre for what we're told is a characteristically rich and balanced sound. They are coupled with a proprietary TNF tweeter.

The Theva N°2 features 13cm speaker drivers, a first for Focal’s home floorstanding loudspeakers.

To fine tune performance, the floorstanding loudspeakers, and optional speaker stands for the Center and N°1, feature tilted bases for optimum Time Aligment and soundstaging.

The Focal Theva range is available in black, dark wood and light wood finishes (except for Theva Surround, which comes in black only). Metallic screen-printed rings frame the speaker drivers.

Focal Theva range and prices:
Theva N1 - £659 ($998/€718)
Theva N2 - £1299 ($1798/€1498)
Theva N3 - £1499 ($2398/€1698s)
Theva N3-D - £1799 ($2998/€1998)
Theva Center - £349 ($649/€399)
Theva Surround - £349 ($649/€399)

The Axpona (Audio Expo North America) runs April 14-16 2023 in Schaumburg, a suburb of Chicago, USA.
