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.
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.
Rich in detail with an impressive soundstage and surprisingly large bass reproduction that delivers precision and timing. The perfect blend between compact size and large sound.
DESIGN AND MATERIALS
The perfect blend between compact size and large sound performanceFollowing the design lines of the very popular MENTOR MENUET, the RUBICON series builds on a well-known design language and takes it to new heights. The RUBICON 2 loudspeaker is the perfect blend between compact size and large sound performance. The solid MDF cabinet is the perfect working environment for its ultra-light 29 mm soft dome tweeter, 6.5-inch wood fibre low-loss driver, and gold-plated terminals. The RUBICON 2 is available in four finishes – High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black, Rosso and Walnut.
Soft Magnetic CompoundThe RUBICON 2 draws upon the heritage from the SMC-based 'Linear Drive System', which was introduced with the EPICON series. With SMC in the RUBICON 2, we achieve extremely low distortion and maximize the level of detail, even at low volume. The SMC technology helps to remove a very large part of the distortion normally found in the magnetic system. The drivers are manufactured in-house at our Danish factory and feature the latest in magnet motor technology. The RUBICON 2 is ready to set new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.
29 MM SOFT DOME
Ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeterThe ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter used in the RUBICON 2 is designed to reach higher into the very high frequencies. Higher than the soft dome used in a DALI hybrid tweeter, as the soft dome tweeter in the RUBICON 2 is required to work on its own and not with a ribbon tweeter. The voice coil used in the RUBICON 2 soft dome is designed to be very light and agile and is kept under strict control by the surrounding powerful ferrite magnet, helping to achieve a broader bandwidth.
Draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologiesThe cone used in the RUBICON 2 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 specifically for the RUBICON 2, with all components situated in a cast-aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
Delivering richly defined detail and big bass responseSmall but perfectly formed, the RUBICON 2 stand speaker may be the baby of the bunch, but delivering richly defined detail and big bass response, its sound belies its size. A perfect blend between compact size and cabinet inner-volume, we believe we have created the ideal working environment to eke the absolute best out of its drivers. Don't let its small footprint fool you; the RUBICON 2 is a performance powerhouse.

"Play Nina Simone's I Put A Spell On You and every element hangs beautifully, the piano and double bass just right of centre with percussion floating just above. Simone's expressive and emotive vocal blends warmly and then the sax kicks in, punctuating the relative calm with its natural rawness of tone."
