Wood Fiber Cones
The wood fiber cone gives a light, rigid and uneven surface for even, piston-like motion and greatly reduced surface resonance.
With an SMC magnet pole-piece surrounded by a slitted copper cap, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised to reduce distortion.
Creating separate chambers for each driver enables us to individually tune them for optimal output.
Our signature DALI hybrid tweeter combines a dome tweeter and ribbon element for exceptional high frequency rendering.
Combining large cabinet volume and our unique hybrid tweeter module, the RUBICON 5 extends and widens higher frequencies to deliver a flawless soundstage of impeccably crisp detail and perfectly precise bass response to bring music to life.
AN IMPRESSIVE PERFORMER
Perfect for stereo listening or in a medium-sized surround setupProducing superior sound at a size that's just right for the average living space, the RUBICON 5 is the first of the floorstanding loudspeakers in the series. It expands the sonic performance of the RUBICON 2 by adding a hybrid tweeter and a larger cabinet, which extends and widens the high frequencies for improved detail and adds more well-timed, deep bass for more presence. The RUBICON 5 is perfect for stereo listening or as the front speakers in a medium-sized surround setup.
Reducing distortion with Soft Magnetic CompoundThe RUBICON 5 draws on the heritage from the SMC-based 'Linear Drive System', introduced with the EPICON series. With SMC, we achieve extremely low distortion and maximise detail, even at low volume. The drivers are manufactured in-house at our production facilities in central Denmark and feature the latest in magnet motor technology. The RUBICON 5 sets new audio quality standards for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.
Drawing on technologies from our EPICON seriesThe woofer cone has a light, rigid and randomly uneven structure, which lowers the complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures piston-like movement, significantly reduces the possibility of surface resonance and minimises distortion. Designed specifically for the RUBICON 5, the soft, low-loss rubber surround includes a cast-aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
DALI HYBRID TWEETER
The master of wide dispersionThe DALI hybrid tweeter module features a soft dome tweeter and a ribbon element that combine to create an amazing rendition of high-frequency details. The voice-coil used in the RUBICON 5 soft dome is extremely light and agile, which helps it deliver a broader bandwidth. The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and, in combination with the soft dome, reaches as low as 2.5 kHz, providing continuous wide dispersion as the soft dome becomes more directional at higher frequencies. This extreme bandwidth and ultra-wide dispersion is an important part of DALI's sound philosophy.
Blending elegant design and functionalityThe gracefully elegant RUBICON 5 cabinet provides a rigid foundation for the low-loss drivers mounted directly onto the 25 mm thick front baffle. On this inside, the bass reflex port is positioned directly behind the woofer to minimise turbulence and deliver exceptional timing.

Powerful with an enhanced and controlled performance. Delivering physical bass to fill a larger room
Upgraded with a new crossover design, Mundorf capacitors and internal DALI silver cable wiring.
High-frequencies from the hybrid tweeter are explicitly detailed and informative yet smooth and endlessly listenable.
Surprising deep, firm bass with clear and well defined midrange and open high frequency response.
