Dali Rubicon 8

by Dali

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.


Assembled in-house, every driver in each of the RUBCION 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 RUBICON series 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.


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.


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.
