Focal Kanta No.2

Focal Kanta Banner Audio Venue

3-way floor standing speaker

Be surprised by Kanta, highly original speakers that will reconnect you with your music.

Entirely dedicated to acoustic performance and with a resolutely disruptive aesthetic, that, in a nutshell, is the Kanta DNA.

It took three years of research and development to create this model, Focal Kanta No.2, the first in the range.

With their new materials and effectiveness-focused design that give them their powerful identity, they come straight from their engineers’ hearts.

Focal offers a hitherto unknown amalgamation of technologies: the marriage of Beryllium, in the latest generation IAL3 tweeter, with Flax, for the midrange and bass drivers.

The result is precise, detailed sound brimming with warmth and musicality.

This is the start of a new era for those who love sound…

Marriage of materials

Focal Kanta No.2 Ivory walnut

Beryllium and Flax

For the very first time, a Flax sandwich cone speaker has been combined with a Beryllium tweeter. Flax is the answer to the low mass/rigidity/damping equation, leading to sound clarity and precision.

This unique Flax/Beryllium combination gives music incredible warmth and musicality.

Made in France, this patented flax cone has already proven itself in Focal home and in-car speakers.

The midrange speaker uses TMD (Tuned Mass Damping) suspension, and every Kanta speaker is also equipped with an NIC (Neutral Inductance Circuit) motor, which stabilises the magnetic field for perfectly defined sound and better controlled bass.

High Density Polymer

Everything is designed and made to create acoustic softness and warmth: the density and stiffness of the front panel and cabinet materials, softened angles and double port vents.

The front panel is made of a new material to suit the acoustic parameters.

It is moulded in one piece from High Density Polymer (HDP).

This material has excellent performance: it is 70% denser than MDF, 15% stiffer and provides 25% more damping.

The one-piece front panel totally eliminates any sound diffraction.

Kanta incorporates Power Flow technology with two vents, on the front and rear faces, to limit bass compression.

New tweeter

Distortion is the enemy

Focal’s research is geared towards reducing distortion in every register.

With Kanta, the treble register is reproduced by a new pure Beryllium tweeter.

This IAL3 tweeter combines the IAL (Infinite Acoustic Loading) and IHL (Infinite Horn Loading) tweeters features, both of which help with the absorption of waves, thus lowering the tweeter frequency.


No.2 White

And that’s all…

Focal’s engineers have revisited their choice of Focus Time’, which corrects speaker alignment, making them the same distance from the ear.

The cabinet is made in one-piece integrally moulded wood.

The Zamac base also brings out masses of character.

With its spikes and cups, the base provides great stability from a very small footprint.

Final details: the glass-covered top and magnetic grilles.

When these are removed, they reveal the speakers’ flax cones, the final design touch that gives Kanta its unique look.


The loudspeakers are offered with a matte front panel combined with a body in Black High Gloss, White High Gloss, Walnut High Gloss or Matte Walnut, providing a broad choice of contemporary combinations.

The sophisticated, matte finish absorbs light instead of reflecting it, which enhances the colours.
