THE SOUND NEAR THE SEA
The leading audio brand Focal presents the LITTORA line: loudspeakers for yachts and spaces located in coastal and humid environments. Installed unobtrusively on walls and ceilings, both indoors and outdoors, these products benefit from Focal’s unique know-how to deliver exceptionally high sound quality outdoors, while blending seamlessly into the environment. With this launch, the French brand confirms its leading position in the audio sector, responding to a wide range of listening needs, with the added benefit of Focal quality sound.
To its complete range of sound for interiors (speakers, Home Cinema, integration speakers, etc.), Focal now adds this solution that brings sound to yachts and to any premises located in a coastal environment (house, restaurant, etc.) or to humid spaces (spa, steam room, etc.): that is, to any space subject to specific conditions outside (humidity, sea fog, salt, wind, etc.).
THE LITTORA RANGE INCLUDES TWO SERIES: LITTORA 1000 AND LITTORA 200
LITTORA 1000 is the flagship series. Made in France and inspired by the Utopia line of products to be integrated into the wall or ceiling to -the excellence of Focal-, its two 1000 ICW8 and ICW10 loudspeakers offer exceptional sound for outdoors. They lend themselves to parties as well as premium listening sessions, and are complemented by the 1000 ICW SUB10 subwoofer for powerful, captivating sound.
All models incorporate the Fiber IP cone, which benefits from a non-woven fiberglass sandwich design, allowing for excellent damping. The ‘M’ shaped tweeter is made from pure Beryllium to deliver the best sound reproduction with detailed and accurate treble.
LITTORA 200 IS THE SECOND SERIES: Its 200 ICW6 and ICW8 loudspeakers combine compactness and performance, offering wide sound coverage.
Compactness and performance characterize the 200 ICW6 and 200 ICW8. These 2-way loudspeakers feature the Iris IP cone, the result of combining polypropylene with carbon fiber to obtain an exceptionally rigid cone that offers ideal damping. This cone has been specially developed to withstand extreme weather conditions and salty environments, without losing sound quality. The aluminum tweeter uses Focal’s exclusive ‘M’ dome technology for optimal energy transfer.
FOCAL KNOW-HOW AND IP CERTIFICATIONS
Since its inception in 1979, Focal has excelled in research and development, especially in the design of cones, the centerpiece of a speaker driver for ultimate sound reproduction. To meet the needs and 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 the Littora 200, which combine very high sound quality with impressive resistance. These new products combine performance, discretion, ease of integration and also perfect resistance to all inclement weather: in particular, they benefit from IP65 certification, an international standard that designates the levels of protection offered by a material against the ingress of solids and liquids. Thus, the range has a perfect tightness and resistance to external elements.
THREE SPEAKERS FOR A PURE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE
Within the Littora 200 series, three products have been specially developed to bring sound to outdoor spaces such as gardens, terraces, pool areas, outdoor kitchens, etc. OD Sat 5, OD Stone 8 and OD Sub 12. Beautifully designed, discreet and with exceptional sound quality, these products complement each other perfectly in terms of aesthetics and sound, to create an audio system without compromise. Their versatility and ease of integration allow them to fit on any surface, anywhere, and for an impressive amount of time.
INDOOR / OUTDOOR MODE AND ACCESSORIES
For a customized system and listening experience, an angle bracket is provided as an accessory, with three sizes available (6″/15cm, 8″/20cm and 10″/25cm), allowing 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 pressing the button on the back, depending on whether they are to be used indoors or outdoors.
THREE PRODUCTS, VARIOUS SYSTEM OPTIONS

In addition, and for optimal adaptation to any type of outdoor environment, Focal also offers different finishes for its OD Sat 5 and OD Sub 12 products, available in Dark or Light finishes. OD Sat 5 is discreet and versatile, supplied with brackets for wall or floor installation; OD Sub 12 is the floor standing subwoofer that delivers powerful bass to sound systems.

FOCAL FRENCH KNOW-HOW
Beyond weather resistance, the cone embedded in the products’ speaker drivers helps deliver exceptional quality outdoor sound reproduction, the result of Focal’s sound know-how spanning more than 40 years. The OD Stone 8 and OD Sat 5 also feature an ‘M’ shaped aluminum coaxial tweeter for clear, crisp treble reproduction in large spaces.
