TRUE 5.1 SYSTEM

When a traditional soundbar depends on the room spatialisation, Dimension offers an immersive 5.1 sound with realistic and precise sound effects not only in the high frequencies.

With a soundstage of 4m and a maximum power of 450W, Dimension performances are equivalent to a very good high-fidelity audio system and are perfect for rooms even measuring over 50m2.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

Dimension has a wide dynamic range thanks to its 26mm five ultra-flat patented speaker drivers for an optimal coherence. High frequencies are clearly defined and coherent because the center of the speaker drivers has the shape of an inverted domeEnjoy clear and natural-sounding dialogues! 

The soundbar also benefits from incredibly deep bass, even without a subwoofer. The two pairs of lateral speaker drivers are used for reproducing the bass, bass-reflex loading with two ports on either side of the soundbar. 
Finally, no vibrations will interfere with the sound, thanks to the exceptional rigidity of Dimension’s brushed aluminium mono bloc chassis. 

 

PLUG & PLAY

Dimension is easy to use and install: in a few minutes only, set it up once through the presets available. Enjoy the potential of HDMI™ connectivity and CEC command to control your entire home-cinema system using a single remote control.
The use is also simple and intuitive: a tactile and discreet interface which can be turned on in just a wave of the hand will enable you to adjust the volume and activate the « Night » mode.
Keeping with the times, Dimension can finally be connected to a smarthone or a tablet for listening to your audio and video files adding the optional Bluetooth® aptX® Universal Wireless Receiver.

KEY POINTS :

  • Natural and high definition sound
  • High dialogues intelligibility
  • Dynamic and coherent reproduction of the whole frequency spectrum
  • Optimal integration (wall-mounted or on a furniture)
  • 2 x HDMI™ integrated
    HDMI 

 

Dimension can be purchased alone or with Dimension Sub or with another Focal subwoofer such as Cub3, Sub Air or Dôme Subwoofer.

I just received it today. Didn't test it yet, but gives a very good impression.


11/24/2016

Standard remote control is not premium quality.


10/20/2016

Is ok


08/28/2016

Great build quality and design.
It is loud however dynamic range is not wide enough. Sub is big make sure you measure your table top, or tv stand first. If I could do it again, would get the wireless sub.


05/1/2016

Remote very simply.
Panel function is not working properly.

5 star but can't select it on an iPad. Great unit, sound immersive & looks great. Connections are a bit fiddly, which is unnecessary. Also would like Mac compatible firmware dates!! Other than that amazing.


03/5/2016

I'm not happy but the remote control is inaccurate and difficult to use , inability to control passive subwoofer (no bass cut to the required range) . Stand soundbar to fall off , setting soundbar not comfortable , it is difficult to connect a passive subwoofer because the buttons are small , I expected a better performance and sound.

Bar: Sound is great, clear and crisp.
Sub: Very powerfull but soft. Sometimes too powerfull (going down with bass in options does little to lower the sub output).


11/24/2015

Would be nice to have all the options on the remote available on the unit. Slightly worried as my remote is already broken (volume key) with less than a weeks use. If it was the bass button there would be no way to access and change the bass level.

Excellent. Just what I was hoping for in terms of a soundbar. Bigger soundstage, vocal clarity and bass.


10/18/2015

New, but excellent so far.


09/30/2015

typical focal quality


07/9/2015

good


05/17/2015

I expected more from the Dimension combo...


05/16/2015

Wish I was able to have better control of the bass w/the bass stand & have treble control.


04/10/2015

Love the Dimension..Only soundbar Imhave owned that sounds Audiophile for music and movies.


02/12/2015

Unit does not work as advertised.

While I'm pretty happy with the soundbar overall. I'm having the issue with the volume and inputs changing randomly. All of my computers are Apple, so I can't even install the updated firmware to try to fix it.
Sound wise, I'm very impressed by the amount of bass, but I wish there were more clear controls to adjust the sound. I find that even without the subwoofer there is too much bass and I can't hear some of the midrange detail that I could hear with my previous setup.

01/26/2015
Hi Daniel,

Indeed, unfortunately, Dimension firmware is not available on Apple devices... We are currently on it.
If you need more info about the settings of your soundbar, I invite you to contact your dealer of the local distributor : http://www.focal.com/en/stores?country=21#238

Issue with volume control automatically adjusting by itself


01/4/2015

It sounds like there is some crackling coming from the right driver/speaker and I may want somebody to come and hear it before too much time passes. Other than that it is amazing!

01/5/2015
Hi Nevin,

Thank you for your comment. I am sorry about the crackling you hear. I invite you to contact back your dealer to notify it and fix this issue as quick as possible.

Nice sound, no need subwoofer.


12/7/2014

This product really amazed me with its sheer sound quality. Before buying this I spent at-least two months while listening to Bose, Yamaha 4300, Sonos, and Monitor Audio ASB2.

I can happily confirm that it has rumble or drama effect of Bose and Yamaha, sound effects of Sonos and clarity and depth of Monitor ASB2.
Also this bar is not cheap and only for those who value sound quality.

If you want a real cinema effect in your home than this bad boy is for you. It will not disappoint with its very power.

Also the sub justify its presence, it only respond when it needed, means only shoot when you play a sound track or a movie not when you are just watching news....
but I must say that it really make you jump off the sofa.


11/2/2014

Excellent quality and looks great. Easy to install. Excellent sound quality
