RUBICON 2 C
The proprietary wireless connection between RUBICON C and the hub is extremely stable and requires no active Wi-Fi signal.
With an SMC magnet pole-piece surrounded by a slitted copper cap, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised to reduce distortion.
Soft Dome Tweeter
With clear heritage from our high-end series, the lightweight dome tweeter offers best-in-class resolution.
Wood Fibre Cones
The wood fibre cone gives a light, rigid and uneven surface for even, piston-like motion and greatly reduced surface resonance.
The DALI RUBICON 2 C is an active stand-mounted speaker with a 6½" low-loss woofer and a 29 mm ultra-light soft dome tweeter. With its impressive soundstage and large bass reproduction, it’s perfect for stereo or surround setups.
WIRELESS SPEAKER SYSTEM
Beautiful harmony in the transition to the digital worldRUBICON 2 C is part of a wireless speaker system that empowers customers to easily access all of their music in the best possible quality and play it back without the need for complicated electronics. DALI RUBICON C is the exemplary combination of the drivers and cabinet construction from the passive RUBICON series, the amplifier technology from the CALLISTO range, and the wireless audio transmission from the DALI SOUND HUB. The RUBICON 2 C is available in three finishes – High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black, and Walnut.
Soft Magnetic CompoundThe use of SMC in the RUBICON 2 C has many advantages, but the overshadowing result is a significant reduction of distortion from the mechanical loss in the magnet motor. SMC’s unique ability to deliver a high magnetic conductivity and a very low electrical conductivity gives us all the wanted qualities of a really good speaker magnet without the traditional downsides. Part of the "secret" is the individually coated magnetic granules that make it possible to mould a strong magnet that's not electrically conductive.
Based on patented state-of-the-art technologyDesigning a ‘best in class’ active speaker system is the sum of many parts, and one truly important part is the amplifier. Using a digital crossover in place of the RUBICON's analogue one, the two amplifiers in each speaker drive the woofers and tweeters directly. This lets the acoustical engineer optimize the interaction between amplifier and driver, bringing out even more detail from the source material. The combination of the low loss design, the wood fibre membrane, and the SMC pole piece makes this woofer able to work with minimal distortion of the amplifier signal. This together with the extremely musical Class-D amplifier delivers audio with lots of dynamic detail.
Draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologiesThe cone used in the RUBICON 2 C draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies. It has a light, rigid, and randomly uneven structure, which lowers the complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures even, piston-like movements, reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly, and facilitates extremely low distortion. The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 2 C, and all of the components are situated in an aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
Ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeterThe ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter used in the RUBICON 2 C is designed to reach higher into the very high frequencies; higher than normal for a soft dome used in a DALI hybrid tweeter. The voice coil used in the RUBICON 2 C is designed to be very light and agile to achieve a broader bandwidth. This lighter voice coil is placed inside a powerful ferrite magnet that keeps tight control of its movements.
Delivering richly defined detail and big bass responseSmall but perfectly formed, the RUBICON 2 C stand-mounted speaker may be the smaller sibling of the series, but it delivers richly defined detail and big bass response. With the perfect blend between compact size and inner cabinet-volume, we believe we have created the ideal working environment to squeeze the absolute best out of its drivers. Don’t let its small footprint fool you; the RUBICON 2 C is a performance powerhouse.
REVIEWS & AWARDSVIEW ALL REVIEWS
"The Rubicon 2 Cs keep things interesting dynamically, giving listeners no opportunity to call out any lifelessness, and there's the precision and organisation to keep things communicative when the composition thickens. Their levels of transparency and way with rhythms are among the most impressive we've heard in a system of this kind."
