The DALI PHANTOM K-80 in-ceiling speaker with 8" woofer builds on the virtues of the well-known PHANTOM E-series, with better sound and a directional soft dome tweeter that lets you adjust the sound to fit every situation.
The dogleg mounting system makes for quick installation: simply turn the screws to rotate the brackets and fasten them into place.
The wood fibre cone is mounted off-axis to lower colouration and distortion for a more even frequency response, while the closely aligned tweeter improves timing and phase.
The new grille design is slimmer, more discreet and comes in true white. It's also compatible with the PHANTOM E series.
Easy-to-install PHANTOM K back-cans deliver a punchier upper bass – ideal for bathrooms or hallways with typically more reverberation.
Inspired by traditional speaker design
When developing the PHANTOM K series speakers, our goal was to create the best in-ceiling speaker design we could. From the off-axis woofer featuring our signature wood fibre cone, low loss rubber surround, long excursion and optimised magnet system, to the wishbone mounted, adjustable soft dome tweeter and unique back-can mounting option, every detail has been optimised to create a speaker series that excels in every way.
A convenient retrofit solution
For the PHANTOM K-80 speaker we've created a new accessory back-can for simple retrofitting into your ceiling if a backbox isn't possible. The back-can might be small, but it's tuned to perfection with a punchier upper bass that can produce better sound in rooms with higher reverberation, such as bathrooms and hallways (side note: the woofer cone is surface treated to better withstand moisture and damp environments). And as the back-can is no wider than the K-60 itself, if fits through the same hole for simple installation.
WOOD FIBRE CONE
High-resolution midrange & coherent bass
A true Hi-Fi speaker can deliver a believable soundstage and render even the smallest micro-details without colouration. Using our signature wood fibre cone technology, the PHANTOM K-80 woofer reproduces every small detail in the music, delivering high-resolution midrange and precise, coherent bass.
ENHANCED BASS EXPERIENCE
Optimise sound profile for amazing bass
The PHANTOM K-80 produces an impressive bass response for its size. We use large magnet systems coupled to a very easy-to-drive moving system with long excursion, delivering deep and articulated bass. We've made the midrange slightly less prominent, giving an impression of more bass and a 'larger' or 'rounder' sound, which is often preferred in an in-ceiling or in-wall speaker. Switches on the PHANTOM K-80 also let you fine-tune the sound to suit your personal taste.
Maximise timing & optimise sound
The woofer is mounted slightly off axis to lower coloration and distortion, which gives a more even frequency response. By doing this, the tweeter can also be positioned closer to the woofer to improve the timing and phase between the two drivers. Angling the woofer also means it can be directed towards the listening position to optimise dispersion of the sound.
Directional tweeter for high-frequency
The 28 mm soft dome tweeter has been chosen for its excellent transient response, low colouration, and high sensitivity. The oversized tweeter delivers a seamless crossover with the woofer, avoiding dips in the frequency response in the critical midrange. Mounted in a highly inert and practically resonance-free solid aluminium wishbone bracket, the tweeter can be tilted towards the listening position for even better high-frequency performance. Tuned mass dampers also help to avoid unwanted distortion from the rest of the enclosure.
