RUBICON 5

The RUBICON 5 is an extremely compact floor standing loudspeaker with a formidable performance. Due to it's compact size we believe that this loudspeaker will become a firm favourite for customers who have limited space for a floor standing loudspeaker, but do not wish to give up on the sonic performance that this loudspeaker will give them.

Low-loss technology
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 aluminum chassis designed for maximum airflow around the cone and magnet system.

Tweeters
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.

Cabinet
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.

RUBICON 5 - Enormously playful
AUDIO (DE)

The RUBICON 5 is not only visually beautiful with the perfect craftsmanship, but also technically outstanding. With the rustic soul number “Holler” by Jeff Cascaro, the RUBICON 5 delivers bursting dynamics and colorations, and it’s easy to imagine how the singer performs and squeeze every word out with all of his heart. The RUBICON 5 succeeds with the analogous balance between plasticity and accuracy: The sound stage is amazingly width and deep leaving the listeners with an authentic experience. As for the bass performance, the RUBICON 5 is really strong, but always sensual and controlled.


The RUBICON 5 might be the speaker in the middle of the RUBICON family, but truly manage to stand out with a lively, neutral and open position and always ready to play.

The full review is available in the September issue of AUDIO.

RUBICON 5: REVIEW BY BRITISH GADGETYNEWS

What really grabbed the reviewer was “how engaging these speakers are.” And he continues: “These are dynamic and energetic and really enjoy driving a tune.”
“My overall impression of the DALI RUBICON 5 speakers were that they produced an enjoyable depth of image and soundstage to the point where the speakers ‘disappear’,” the reviewer says and he concludes that “these are pretty compact floorstanders in comparison to others on the market but the sound they produce is much larger than their physical size would suggest.”
