DALI RUBICON 6 C

The RUBICON 6 C is part of a 'best in class' active speakers system with a powerful driver construction that teams up to move a lot more air and reach even lower into the deep bass region. The floorstanding speaker has an extremely stable wireless connection using its own proprietary network. Featuring two 250 watts musical Class D amplifiers in each speaker, there is plenty of power to ensure more than enough sound pressure even in complex musical passages or massive explosions in movies.

ZERO LOSS
With a focus on zero loss, no latency and easy setup, the wireless connection only requires power to be fully working, which means easy change of setup and no installation of audio cords. The wireless connection between RUBICON C and the Sound HUB will even work without any Wi-Fi signal active, due to the direct connection between the units.

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.

SOFT DOME TWEETER
With a clear heritage from our high-end series, the lightweight dome tweeter offers best in class resolution.

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.


PRODUCT DETAILS
The elegant RUBICON C is our way of creating beautiful harmony in the transition to the digital world while keeping the high-quality character. RUBICON 6 C is part of a wireless speaker system that empowers the costumer to easily access all their music in the best possible quality, and play it back without the need for complicated electronics.

The RUBICON 6 C is able to deliver enough physical bass to fill a larger room, especially thanks to the woofers.

The RUBICON C audio system delivers modern Hi-Fi on the same high quality level - or better - than the original RUBICON series. This due to the combination of the drivers and cabinet construction from the original passive series, the amplifier technology from CALLISTO range, and the wireless audio transmission from the DALI Sound HUB. Together they shape the RUBICON C series.

Available in three finishes – High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black and Walnut – the RUBICON 6 C comes complete with rubber feet to hold it firmly in position and to help keep it at its aesthetic as well as acoustic best.


SMC
The use of SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) in the RUBICON 6 C has many advantages, but the overshadowing result is a significant reduction of distortion from the mechanical loss in the magnet motor. SMC’s unique ability to deliver a high magnetic conductivity and a very low electrical conductivity gives us all the wanted qualities of a really good speaker magnet without the traditional downsides.

Part of the “secret” is the individually coated magnetic granules that make it possible to mould a strong magnet that’s not electrically conductive (approx. 1/10.000’s of iron). The result of using SMC is almost no hysteresis, and therefore no distortion.

AMPLIFIER
Designing a ‘best in class’ active speaker system is the sum of many parts. One truly important part is the amplifier, or more correctly the amplifier module.

Using a digital crossover in place of the RUBICON’s analogue one, the two amplifiers in each speaker drives the woofers and tweeters directly. This lets the acoustical engineer optimize the interaction between amplifier and driver perfectly bringing out even more detail from the source material than possible before.

The 6½” wood fibre SMC based woofer delivers the mid-range and bass frequencies fed by one of the two 250-Watt amplifiers. The combinations of the low loss design, the wood fibre membrane and the SMC pole piece makes this woofer able to work with minimal distortion of the amplifier signal. This together with the extremely musical Class-D amplifier delivers audio with lots of dynamic detail.

Our Class D amplifier is based on patented state-of-the-art technology with a global feedback, selfoscillating design chosen for its very musical properties. Being able to deliver 250 Watts for up to 5 seconds, there is plenty of power to ensure more than enough sound pressure even in complex musical passages or massive explosions in movies.

DRIVERS
WOOFER
The cone used in the RUBICON 6 C 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 6 C.

The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 6 C, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.

TWEETER
The ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter used in the RUBICON 6 C is designed to reach higher into the very high frequencies. Higher than normal for at soft dome used in a DALI hybrid tweeter. This is done since the soft dome tweeter is required to work on its own in the RUBICON 6 C.

The voice coil used in the RUBICON 6 C is furthermore 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.


CABINET
The RUBICON 6 C floorstanding speaker delivers richly defined detail and big bass response. The gracefully elegant 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.
