Dali Rubicon 8
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 AND PASSION
Recreating the passion of a live performance
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 blend the bass and midrange frequencies seamlessly, while the wide sound dispersion afforded by our hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill larger spaces with a totally transparent image and a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance. The RUBICON 8 is the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a midrange price.
Blending elegant design and functionality
The gracefully elegant RUBICON 8 cabinet provides a rigid foundation for the low-loss drivers. On this inside, the woofers are enclosed in separate chambers to minimise interference, while bass reflex ports positioned directly behind each woofer minimises turbulence and delivers exceptional timing.
Wood Fibre Cones
The wood fibre cone gives a light, rigid and uneven surface for even, piston-like motion and greatly reduced surface resonance.
Creating separate chambers for each driver enables us to individually tune them for optimal output.
With an SMC magnet pole-piece surrounded by a slitted copper cap, the effect of the SMC is focused and maximised to reduce distortion.
The signature DALI hybrid tweeter combines a dome tweeter and ribbon element for exceptional high frequency rendering.
RUBICON 8 is a floor standing speaker. It expands the sonic performance of the RUBICON by adding a hybrid tweeter and a larger cabinet offering more of everything. Extending and widening the high frequencies for improved detail, and adding more well timed deep bass for a more demanding presence. The RUBICON 8 is perfect for stereo listening or as the front speakers in a medium sized surround setup.
The cone used in the RUBICON series 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 series. The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON series, and all of the components are situated in an aluminium chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
In the RUBICON series, 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 series 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.
