RUBICON 8

ksp icon
Wood Fibre Cones

The wood fibre cone gives a light, rigid and uneven surface for even, piston-like motion and greatly reduced surface resonance.

Patented SMC

With an SMC magnet pole-piece surrounded by a slitted copper cap, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised to reduce distortion.

Cabinet Construction

Creating separate chambers for each driver enables us to individually tune them for optimal output.

Hybrid Tweeter

Our signature DALI hybrid tweeter combines a dome tweeter and ribbon element for exceptional high frequency rendering.

Quite simply a stunning, epic soundstage. Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance in almost any listening space.

PERFORMANCE

Perfect for stereo listening or in a medium-sized surround setup

Upping the audio ante to the extreme, the RUBICON 8 is quite simply stunning in terms of the epic soundstage it presents. The trio of woofers work by kicking in at different frequencies, making the RUBICON 8 loudspeaker the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a mid-range price. Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance, the wider sound dispersion afforded by our hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill even the most sizeable of spaces with the purest audio your ears will ever witness.

PATENTED SMC

Soft Magnetic Compound

The RUBICON 8 draws upon the heritage from the SMC-based 'Linear Drive System', which was introduced with the EPICON series. With the use of SMC in RUBICON 8, 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 that distortion - normally found in the magnetic system. We manufacture the drivers at our Danish factory and feature the latest magnet motor technology. This prepares the RUBICON 8 to set new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.

DALI HYBRID TWEETER

The master of wide dispersion

The DALI hybrid tweeter makes use of a soft dome tweeter and ribbon tweeter, working together to create an amazing rendition of the high frequencies. The voice coil used in the RUBICON 8 soft dome is designed to be very light and agile and is kept under strict control by the surrounding powerful ferrite magnet, which helps achieve a broader bandwidth. The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and in combination with the soft dome, the hybrid tweeter module starts working as low as 2.5 kHz, providing continuous wide dispersion as the soft dome becomes more directional at higher frequencies. This extreme bandwidth combined with the ultra-wide dispersion is an important part of the DALI sound philosophy.

6.5" WOOFER

Draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies

The three 6.5 inch drivers used in RUBICON 8 all work together to reproduce a clean, detailed sound with no colouration. The cones draw upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies. They have 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 8, with all components situated in a cast-aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.

CABINET DESIGN

Mid-range and bass drivers are separated into individual chambers

The gracefully elegant exterior of the RUBICON 8 works as the foundation for its low-loss drivers. In every cabinet, the mid-range and bass drivers are separated into individual chambers. Turbulence is minimized through a bass reflex port, which is placed directly behind every woofer, and the timing between the woofer and the bass port is thereby also optimised.

    "The midrange is like a wide-open window to the music. It sounds as if the speakers are much more expensive than they really are. [...] The sound image is big, greatly three-dimensional, and very well-defined with a black background, which almost is unique in its price range. [...] We give an A+ and great applause for DALI."
