Focal Dome Flax 5.1 Review – Home Theatre

Focal is a French audio manufacturer that has long been a mainstay in both professional and consumer audio, producing anything from entry-level studio monitors to gargantuan audiophile beasts that cost quarter million dollars. However, the business has recently made significant strides with its miniature satellite speakers, which are offered in stylish Focal Dome Flax 5.1 plug-and-play bundles in a variety of sizes and styles. However, the Dome Flax speakers could be the most attractive.

This sytem speaker is a natural progression from the Dôme design for a perfect Home Cinema system. It emphasizes this fact with its one-of-a-kind design and stunning, single-block aluminium lacquered .When combined with Dôme satellite speakers, it produces a sound that is similar to much larger and bulkier speakers! To reach this degree of sound, the Sub Air Subwoofer employs cutting-edge loudspeaker technology as well as a hybrid digital/analog BASH® amplifier, which is also found in all Focal subwoofers.

Our Verdict


A certain smash among film and music fans. The Dôme is a very competent bundle that is also now more affordable.


  • Excellent build quality
  • Punchy, powerful bass
  • Lower cost


  • Soundstage could be wider

The first thing that struck me about the Focal Domes was that the entire system fits in a box around the size of one average-sized tower speaker, including the sub! The sub and five satellites are wrapped in polystyrene and come with wall-mounting hardware and rubber bottoms if you want to set them on a shelf or entertainment cabinet. The speakers are clearly planned, built, and made with the same attention and quality as Focal’s more costly versions.

Sound Quality

Sound Quality

The slate fiber cone knowledge from Focal is a mix of recycled non-woven carbon fibers and thermoplastic polymer, which delivers extra stiffness and correct bass response. The thermoplastic polymer binds the fibers, which enhances damping even further.

Because carbon fibers have a low bulk, the sensitivity of the resulting speaker driver may be tuned. So, what does this have to do with a subwoofer? Characterization. We never felt that the playback was ooze-y or subwoofer-y. It was just a solid, built-in, steady low-end.

The Focal Dôme 5.1 home theater setup, in our opinion, establishes a new bar for compact speaker systems. It not only sounds fantastic for a compact system, but it also sounds great when compared to speakers that are much larger and cost much more. The Focal system may be your dream come true if you desire high-end performance yet value your floor space.

The Domes’ smooth, precise, and frequently strong sound immerses the spectator in whatever they are witnessing in home theatre soundtracks. In two-channel mode, the Domes have a remarkable soundstage and can handle thrash metal as well as acoustic ballads. Wrap all of this performance in a packaging that appears to belong in an art museum, and you have the Focal Dôme system.

Needless to say, I was smitten with this speaker system. They are as much art as they function, and as a result, they are the class leaders. Do not purchase a 5.1 sub-sat system without first auditioning the Focal Dôme system.
