The floor standing flagship of the RUBICON series, the RUBICON 8, will provide you with a mind blowing large soundstage and an impressive deep, physical bass. The RUBICON 8 has no less than three drivers that all kick in at different frequencies. This setup ads up to what in effect is a 2½+½+½-way construction, and generates an amazing range and impressive sound pressure. The RUBICON 8 is for those seeking the extraordinary in size and sound.

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 work by kicking in at different frequencies, making the RUBICON 8 the pinnacle of your entry into the world of high-end audio at a mid-range price.

Delivering a totally transparent image with a richness of detail that recreates the passion of a live performance, the wider sound dispersion afforded by Dali's hybrid tweeter helps the RUBICON 8 fill even the most sizeable of spaces with the purest audio your ears will ever witness.

SMC

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 8, 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 8 is ready to set new standards for audio quality for Hi-Fi lovers around the world.

The RUBICON 8 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.

HYBRID TWEETER

In the RUBICON 8, 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 8 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.

WOOFER

Assembled in-house, every driver in each of the RUBICON models are configured to match the model they are destined for. The three 6½ inch drivers used in RUBICON 8 all work together to reproduce a clean, detailed sound with no colouration.

The cones used in the RUBICON 8 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 8.

The soft low-loss rubber surround is designed and bespoke specifically for the RUBICON 8, and all of the components are situated in an aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.

CABINET

The gracefully elegant exterior of the RUBICON 8 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.

Standing over a metre tall, the elegantly styled RUBICON 8 is constructed from solid MDF and is available in four striking finishes: High-Gloss White, High-Gloss Black, Rosso and Walnut. As with its floor standing siblings, it also comes complete with both spike set and rubber feet plus a polishing cloth  to keep your new pride and joy fingerprint free.
