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.
HYBRID TWEETER MODULE
The hybrid tweeter module is a DALI trademark and for the RUBICON series, it is built in Denmark. The hybrid tweeter module combines the dome tweeter with the ribbon tweeter for an amazing rendering of the high frequencies.
Dividing the mid-range and bass drivers into separated chambers enables us to individually tune every driver to its specific frequency range to maximize the woofer output.
WOOD FIBRE CONES
Using a wood fiber 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.
Producing superior sound at a size that’s just right for the averagely proportioned living space, the RUBICON 5 is the first of the floorstanding loudspeakers within the RUBICON family. Combining that bigger internal capacity with our unique ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter module, the RUBICON 5 extends and widens higher frequencies to deliver a flawless soundstage of impeccably crisp detail and perfectly precise bass response to bring your music to life.
RUBICON 5 is a floor standing loudspeaker. It expands the sonic performance of the RUBICON 2 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 5 is perfect for stereo listening or as the front speakers in a medium sized surround setup combined with a pair of RUBICON 2 or RUBICON LCR as the back speakers and a RUBICON VOKAL as the center speaker.
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 5, 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 5 is ready to set new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.
The RUBICON 5 draws upon the heritage from the SMC based ‘Linear Drive System, which was introduced with the EPICON 5. 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 5, 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 5 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 5 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 5.
The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 5, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.
The gracefully elegant exterior of the RUBICON works as the base for the low-loss drivers. In every cabinet, the mid-range and bass drivers are separated into their own 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 optimized.
With a case made of solid MDF, the RUBICON 5 is available in High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black, Rosso and Walnut finishes and comes complete with both spike set and rubber feet, along with a polishing cloth to keep it looking as stunning as it sounds.
