Rubicon Vokal Center Speaker
RUBICON VOKAL is the ultimate centre loudspeaker. Striking an elegant balance between size and performance, the RUBICON VOKAL is powerful enough to match the RUBICON 8, and still compact enough to fit in most living rooms. The two 6½” low-loss wood fibre woofers deliver a clear and well defined mid-range together with the hybrid tweeter module. It also uses the same soft dome diaphragm and many of the same SMC technologies as used in the EPICON series. The cabinet size helps the RUBICON VOKAL reproduce even the lowest bass frequencies from the gripping action on the screen or stunning musical performances.
And like the rest of the RUBICON range, it features gold-plated bi-wiring terminals.
The RUBICON VOKAL fits into every RUBICON surround system and can be combined with e.g. a pair of RUBICON 5, a pair of RUBICON 2 and a SUB or a pair of RUBICON 6, a pair of RUBICON LCR and a DALI SUB. In general, we recommend the SUB M-10 D for a RUBICON surround setup.
WOOD FIBRE CONES
Using a wood fibre cone gives the in-house build woofer a light, rigid and randomly uneven membrane. Making it easy to move ensures even piston like movements and reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly.
Dividing the mid-range and basse drivers into separated chambers enables us to individually tune every driver to its specific frequency range to maximise the woofer output.
HYBRID TWEETER MODULE
The hybrid tweeter module is a DALI trademark and for the RUBICON series, it is build in Denmark. The hybrid tweeter module, combines the dome tweeter with the ribbon tweeter for an amazing rendering of the high frequencies.
SMC MAGNET SYSTEM
With a pole piece constructed entirely from SMC, surrounded by a slitted copper cap, and enclosed within a large ferrite magnet, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised, and reduces distortion as never heard before.
With the introduction of the SMC based "Linear Drive System", we've broken new ground in the loudspeaker industry. Utilizing the technologies behind the SMC in the RUBICON VOKAL, we aim to create an extremely low distortion and maximize the level of details, even at low volume. With the drivers manufactured in-house at our Danish factory, and featuring the latest in magnet motor technology, the RUBICON VOKAL is ready to set new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.
The RUBICON VOKAL draws upon the heritage from the SMC based ‘Linear Drive System, which was introduced with the EPICON series. With the use of the technology from the SMC drivers, we have taken a step closer to remove a very large part of the unwanted distortion. The bass drivers are optimized for long excursion, and the midrange driver for a large useful frequency range insuring that the roll-off is handled in the crossover and not in the driver. All this ensures that the benefit from SMC can be enjoyed by even more Hi-Fi lovers around the world.
In the RUBICON VOKAL, DALI makes use of both the soft dome tweeter working alone, and the hybrid tweeter configuration an amazing rendering of the high frequencies. The voice coil used in the RUBICON VOKAL is designed to be very light and agile in order to achieve a broader bandwidth. This lighter voice coil is placed inside a powerful ferrite magnet that keeps a tight control of its movements.
The ribbon tweeter is the master of wide dispersion and combining it with the soft dome, the tweeter module starts working as low as 2.5 KHz. This extreme bandwidth combined with the ultra wide dispersion is an important part of the DALI sound philosophy.
The cone used in the RUBICON VOKAL draws upon the heritage from the EPICON technologies, and has a light, rigid and randomly uneven structure. This lower the complexity of the central part of the motor, ensures even piston like movements, reduces the possibility of surface resonance greatly and creates an extremely low distortion within the RUBICON VOKAL.
The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON VOKAL, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
