Focal Launches New Generation Of Sib Loudspeakers With SIB EVO Line Featuring Dolby Atmos – July 17, 2017–Tokyo , Japan (Techreleased) – Focal a leading French speaker and headphone manufacturer, today unveils the company’s new generation of Sib loudspeakers with Sib Evo line featuring Dolby Atmos® technology, and once again sparking a revolution in the home cinema market.
Easy to install and use, the Sib Evo Dolby Atmos® system will submerge you in a 3D universe, making you feel like you’re at the heart of the action. Also available as a 2.0 pack, it can be used to upgrade a 5.1 system to a 5.1.2 system without having to change all your loudspeakers.
“The Sib Evo Dolby Atmos loudspeaker is the second generation of Focal’s iconic Sib range that launched in 2002, and keeps in line with the design codes of the range with a style that is futurist, but timeless,” said Ben Jensen, president of Focal North America. “Our Sib range of compact loudspeakers has been a reference in the home cinema universe since its launch in 2002. It became the go-to system in the 5.1 Home Cinema sector with its timeless design which has set the trend for nearly two decades.”
Sib is the ‘lifestyle’ loudspeaker that fits with every interior and will match the volume you’re looking for effortlessly. The audio track will perfectly render the dialogue and full intensity of the action or emotion. All the key elements of the film are conveyed with extreme clarity and pitch-perfect precision, giving the spectator the impression of being right at the heart of the action.
The audio quality of Focal’s Sib loudspeakers is impressive considering their size. This range of loudspeakers comprises a complete Home Cinema system of satellite loudspeakers and an active subwoofer. (The Cub subwoofer became Cub3, which is still available on the market.)
A slowly evolving market
Over the last 20 years, the Home Cinema sector has lacked innovation. When there has been innovation, the focus has been on multiplying the number of loudspeakers. 5.1 Home Cinema systems were developed in the 1990s, with the creation of rear sound effects. Between 1990 and 2012, 7.1 and 9.1 systems made their entrance, and with them, surround sound which completed the Home Cinema offer on the market. These changes served to enhance the cinematographic experience using horizontal sound effects.
Just like the Sib Evo and Sib Evo Dolby Atmos® loudspeakers, Cub Evo touches on the same design codes as Focal’s hi-fi subwoofers, within a ‘lifestyle’ product. Equipped with an 8” speaker driver and a 200W Class D amplifier, it’s characterized by its MDF structure and its Black Matte finish. To meet the requirements imposed by the listening room, Cub Evo has all the typical traits of Focal subwoofers: the crossover, the phase inverter, ON/OFF auto power function, and an LFE input. The 8” Polyflex speaker driver and Class D amplifier allow Cub Evo to deliver powerful, controlled bass with a frequency response that extends as low as 35Hz. Cub Evo is the ideal companion for Sib Evo, and it is also suitable for all varieties of Home Cinema systems.
