OPTICON VOKAL MK2

The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is specifically voiced to play the centre channel role and engineered to fit perfectly into a full OPTICON MK2 audio-visual system.

Patented SMC

Our patented SMC magnet motor minimises hysteresis to significantly reduce electro-acoustic distortion.

Made in Denmark

At our Danish production facilities we hand-assemble, test and QA everything from cutting the laminate to surface finishing.

Hybrid Tweeter

Our hybrid tweeter marries the clarity, speed, and dynamics of a soft dome with the very high-frequency detail and finesse of a planar.

Slim Reflex Ports

With front-facing, twin letterbox reflex ports, the VOKAL MK2 can be placed in more compact enclosures than traditional centre speakers.

Finish: Tobacco Oak (Vinyl)

HIGH PERFORMANCE AUDIO

Designed to play the centre channel role

The detailed, coherent OPTICON VOKAL MK2 centre speaker is the perfect partner for any speaker in the OPTICON MK2 series. It's even powerful enough to be paired with the range-topping OPTICON 8 MK2. The speaker's size and front-facing reflex ports also mean that it can be placed against a wall under a TV or projector, or integrated into TV furniture as part of a discreet home surround setup.

PATENTED SMC

Reducing distortion with SMC

The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 driver magnet system consists of a large ferrite ring magnet surrounding a pole piece manufactured entirely of the unique DALI SMC (Soft Magnetic Composite) 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.

HYBRID TWEETER

The master of wide dispersion

Our hybrid tweeter module marries a 29 mm soft dome tweeter with a custom 17 x 45 mm planar 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 planar tweeter.

WOOD FIBRE CONE

Accurate, detailed sound

The 6½" bass/midrange driver features our proprietary fine paper pulp and reinforced wood fibre composite materials. Together, they create a stiff, lightweight structure that works with the low loss surround and spider suspension to reproduce the most minute details with accuracy and transparency.

HIGH QUALITY CABINET

Ensuring the highest quality products

With a 25 mm thick front baffle and extra internal bracing, the speaker 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.

What people are saying

AUDIO TEST (DE)

The center speaker lives up to its name. Even in the greatest acoustic turmoil, the 2-way speaker always achieves optimal speech intelligibility. This is where the hybrid tweeter comes into its own.
