Dali Rubicon 8 Loudspeakers
The floor standing flagship of the RUBICON series, the RUBICON 8, will provide you with a mind blowing large soundstage and an impressive deep, physical bass. The RUBICON 8 has no less than three drivers that all kick in at different frequencies. This setup ads up to what in effect is a 2½+½+½-way construction, and generates an amazing range and impressive sound pressure. The RUBICON 8 is for those seeking the extraordinary in size and sound.
Upping the audio ante to the extreme, the RUBICON 8 is quite simply stunning in terms of the epic soundstage it presents. The trio of woofers work by kicking in at different frequencies, making the RUBICON 8 the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a mid-range price.
Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance, the wider sound dispersion afforded by our hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill even the most sizeable of spaces with the purest audio your ears will ever witness.
All variants in the series feature the DALI SMC magnet system which reduces distortion as never heard before. Part of the “secret” is the individually coated magnetic granules that make it possible to mould a strong magnet that’s not electrically conductive.
In the RUBICON 2, DALI makes use of both the soft dome tweeter working alone, and the hybrid tweeter configuration an amazing rendering of the high frequencies. The voice coil used in the RUBICON 2 is designed to be very light and agile in order to achieve a broader bandwidth. This lighter voice coil is placed inside a powerful ferrite magnet that keeps a tight control of its movements.
The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and combining it with the soft dome, the tweeter module starts working as low as 2.5 KHz. This extreme bandwidth combined with the ultra wide dispersion is an important part of the DALI sound philosophy.
The cone used in the RUBICON 2 draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies, and has a light, rigid and randomly uneven structure. This lower the complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures even piston like movements, reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly and creates an extremely low distortion within the RUBICON 2.
The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 2, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
Small but perfectly formed, the RUBICON 2 stand speaker may be the baby of the bunch, but delivering richly defined detail and big bass response, its sound belies its size. The perfect blend between compact size and cabinet inner-volume, we believe we have created the ideal working environment to eke the absolute best out of its drivers. Don’t let its small footprint fool you; the RUBICON 2 is a performance powerhouse.
