OPTICON 6 MK2
Our patented SMC magnet motor minimises hysteresis to significantly reduce electro-acoustic distortion.
The OPTICON MK2 dual-flare reflex ports minimise turbulence and effectively reinforce low-frequency performance.
Made in Denmark
At our Danish production facilities, we hand-assemble, test and QA everything from cutting the laminate to surface finishing.
Our hybrid tweeter marries the clarity, speed and dynamics of a soft dome with the very high frequency detail and finesse of a ribbon.
The slim, floorstanding OPTICON 6 MK2 is the entry point in the OPTICON MK2 series for the renowned DALI hybrid soft dome and ribbon tweeter. Assembled at our own factory in Denmark.
Dynamic accuracy with extraordinary detail and clarityThe internal volume of the floorstanding OPTICON 6 MK2 significantly extends low-frequency response and bass volume level, making it ideally suited to large listening spaces. And with our signature hybrid tweeter module, it also has extraordinary detail and clarity higher up. As with the MK1 series, the OPTICON 6 MK2 is manufactured at our factory in Denmark using components produced in-house or sourced from the best specialist manufacturers locally and further afield.
AERODYNAMIC REFLEX PORT
Bringing port design into the realm of aerodynamicsAs a reflex-loaded speaker, the OPTICON 6 MK2 channels unused acoustic output generated by the woofer to extend low-frequency bandwidth and increase power handling. Using a dual flare shape that minimises turbulence at the entry and exit flares, the OPTICON 6 MK2 brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics.
Reducing distortion with Soft Magnetic CompoundThe OPTICON 6 MK2 driver magnet system consists of a large ferrite ring magnet surrounding a pole-piece manufactured entirely of the unique DALI SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) material. The use of SMC greatly reduces mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents, resulting in a drastic reduction in third-order distortion for extended listening pleasure, a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing.
The master of wide dispersionThe OPTICON 6 MK2 hybrid tweeter module marries a 29 mm soft dome tweeter with a custom 17 x 45 mm ribbon element. Both drivers are mounted on a cast aluminium faceplate, which provides a solid platform for the drivers and incorporates dispersion control detailing for optimal delivery of the high frequencies for off-axis listening. Our hybrid tweeter module offers the best of both worlds – the clarity, speed and dynamics of a dome tweeter with the very high-frequency detail and smooth finesse of a ribbon tweeter.
WOOD FIBRE WOOFER
Low loss, low distortion and low colourationThe two 6½" bass drivers have been designed according to our sound design principles of low loss, low distortion and low colouration. The ideal driver plays only what the amplifier supplies... nothing is added, nothing is taken away. Every OPTICON 6 MK2 component is carefully designed to contribute towards this goal, including the paper pulp and wood fibre cone, which ensures minimal break-up resonance for a high resolution midrange and precise, coherent bass.
HIGH QUALITY CABINET
Ensuring the highest quality productsWith a 25 mm thick front baffle and extra internal bracing, the OPTICON 6 MK2 cabinet is extremely rigid and practically eliminates panel resonance. To ensure the best possible quality product, we manufacture and test OPTICON MK2 series speakers at our production facilities in central Denmark, carrying out everything from cutting and routing of the wood laminate panels to installing the drivers and crossover.
REVIEWS & AWARDSVIEW ALL REVIEWS
"It didn't matter what scene we would try, the speakers would continue to showcase all the qualities and then some. Explosions would push the 6.5″ woofers to their limits to produce bass that was tightly controlled and well defined without becoming boomy or muffled at any point, even during the most crucial moments when the film would hit the lows hard."
