By combining appealing Danish design, genuine materials and excellence in driver- and speaker development, you get a high performance satellite loudspeaker for on-wall mounting by choosing the FAZON LCR. The satellite speaker can be used both for stereo or multi channel setups - even as a center channel speaker.
DALI FAZON LCR comes with a patent pending wall bracket, which makes connectivity and correct polarity very easy, no matter how the speaker is mounted. FAZON LCR is a versatile loudspeaker, which fits a modern lifestyle, where high performance and a compact form factor is in quest.
Sound & Build Quality
The drivers in FAZON LCR have a lot of similarities with the drivers used in the multiple award winning DALI IKON and MENTOR speakers. The cabinet is made of die cast aluminum, which makes it possible to create an asymmetrical shape with internal bracings, which will suppress both acoustic and mechanical resonances in the cabinet structure.
FAZON LCR 3.1
In some rooms it can be difficult to accommodate surround speakers or to run the necessary cables. An obvious solution may be to go for a 3.1 system, for instance three FAZON LCR and the FAZON SUB 1.
CLICK 'N' CONNECT
No cables, no connectors, no hassle – just use the Click'n'Connect wall bracket that is delivered with the speaker. The FAZON LCR wall bracket ensures an easy and secure fixation on the wall, and at the same time a hassle-free audio-grade connection of the speaker.
On the rear side of the Click'n'Connect connector, the high quality audio grade crossover is mounted - ensuring a short signal path. Speaker wires are fastened to the gold plated connectors on the back side of the wall bracket, which are designed to allow the choice of a hidden wire (in-wall) or an on-wall speaker cable. Gold plated 4mm banana plug style Connector pins will ensure high quality electrical connection between the loudspeaker and the wall bracket.
The speaker may be rotated to desired vertical or horizontal orientation without affecting polarity. The correct connection is clearly recognised by an audible “click” when the speaker is pushed onto the wall bracket. For extra caution, the release button can be locked with an integrated lock-screw. Mounted on the wall the distance from wall to outer speaker point is only 11.5 cm/4.6 inches.
Most dome tweeters are 25–26mm diameter. FAZON LCR share tweeter technology with other DALI speakers, and are based on a 28mm voice coil. That means 25% longer voice coil circumference and better power handling, both short and long term compared to more common 1 inch tweeters. Moreover, power compression is reduced because of the oversized voice coil.
Power handling is further improved by the use of aluminium heat sink on the back of the magnet system.
The oversized diameter of the dome tweeter has further advantages: The surface area of the tweeter is larger than normal – resulting in higher sound pressure levels for a given electrical input. The resonance frequency is also reduced by use of the oversize dome, which will make a better integration with the sound from the mid/woofers and improve dynamics of the deepest tones the dome tweeter reproduces.
Even tough the dome tweeter is larger than normal; the weight of the dome is lower than normal, due to the use of a thin, light weight material. The low moving mass will make it possible for the dome to react faster on the electrical signals that is fed to the voice coil. The outcome is sound with a more natural character, as well as improved resolution and attention to fine details and micro dynamics.
The FAZON LCR features a pair of 4.5 inch wood fibre cones, which have become a speciality in DALI driver designs since the introduction into the top-line EUPHONIA series.
Wood fibres add stiffness to paper cones without any ringing tendencies, and have proven to work as a key technology in reproducing the finest details and dynamics in the music without any loss. Paper cones are typically very light weight in comparison with other cone materals.
At DALI we believe in designs based on low mechanical losses. This means that we were among the first to insist in controlling the frequency response by carefully balanced designs, even with very low-loss rubber surrounds that will reveal problems in poor design.
We do not want to use nonlinear mechanic effects to control, reduce or limit the movement of the parts that should reproduce the music. We want the amplifier current to be the factor to control the movement.
The use of a die-cast aluminium as cabinet construction material introduces important mechanical advantages, and has been chosen in order to meet some of the challenges it is to make great sound in a compact stylish package.
First of all, the high strength of aluminium, compared to less rigid materials as fibreboard or plastic, enables the engineers to use the thinner walls, thus utilising the speaker size for internal volume.
The use of a die-cast process has been used to further strengthen the cabinet with internal bracings and to integrate sturdy and non-resonant bases and supports for the baffle, bracket connection etc.
Further, and quite important, the die-cast process has been used to create an inner cavity without parallel sides thus avoiding standing wave modes - simply to ensure a better acoustic environment for the drivers.
Finally, the higher mass of the aluminum (the speaker is 3,6 kg/7.8 lbs) acts as a heavy counterweight to avoid vibrations from the cone- movements to shake the complete speaker. In fact the weight of the speaker is more than 200 times the total moving mass of the three drivers.
