Focal Unveils LITTORA A Perfect Option for Yachts and Wet Environment

Recently, the leading audio brand Focal unveiled the LITTORA line: speaker drivers for yachts and spaces located in coastal and wet environments. Fitting discreetly into walls and ceilings, both indoors and outdoors, these products from Focal’s deliver exceptionally high sound quality outdoors while blending seamlessly into their surroundings.


In addition to its complete offering for indoor sound (loudspeakers, Home Cinema, in-wall/in-ceiling, etc.), Focal is now adding a solution that brings sound to yachts and any premises located in a coastal environment (home, restaurant, etc.) or wet spaces (spa, steam room, etc.): in other words, any spaces subject to specific outdoor conditions (humidity, sea spray, salt, wind, etc.). The arrival of this offer follows on from the July 2021 opening of the Focal Powered by Naim showroom in Cannes, the first floor of which is designed to replicate a boat interior. In addition to its products, Focal offers real expertise – advice on the configuration and placement of speaker drivers, acoustic testing measurements, on-site sound design, sound tuning, and more.

The Littora range includes two series of in-wall and in-ceiling speaker drivers: Littora 1000 and Littora 200. The first is the flagship series. Made in France and inspired by the Utopia line of in-wall / in-ceiling products Focal excellence, its two speaker drivers 1000 ICW8 and ICW10 offer outstanding outdoor sound. Lending themselves as well to party use as to ultra high-quality listening sessions, they are complemented by the 1000 ICW SUB10 subwoofer for a powerful and captivating sound. Littora 200 is the second series – its 200 ICW6 and ICW8 speaker drivers combine compactness and performance, delivering wide sound coverage. Three outdoor loudspeakers are the final additions to the Littora 200 series: OD Sat 5, OD Stone 8 and OD Sub 12 for enjoying Focal sound in outdoor settings such as gardens, terraces, poolsides and more.


Since its creation in 1979, Focal has been excelling in research and development, particularly in the design of cones, the centrepiece of a speaker driver for ultimate sound reproduction. To meet the needs and respond to the constraints of marine and coastal environments, Focal engineers have developed the Fiber IP cone for the Littora 1000 series and the Iris IP cone for Littora 200, combining very high sound quality with impressive resistance. These brand new products blend performance, discretion, ease of integration but also perfect resistance to all weathers: in particular, they benefit from IP65 certification, an international standard designating the levels of protection offered by a material against the ingress of solids and liquids. The range therefore boasts perfect waterproofing and resistance to outdoor elements.


For a custom system and listening experience, an angled bracket is provided as an accessory, with three sizes available (6″/15cm, 8″/20cm and 10″/25cm), enabling you to determine the tilt of the speaker driver and play the sound in the direction of your choice. It is also possible to adapt the sound of the speaker drivers by simply clicking on the button on the back, depending on whether they are to be used indoors or outdoors.
