Crystal Clear Sound
The EPICON 6 is no less that DALIs new reference loudspeaker. Standing on the shoulders of virtues from the acclaimed EUPHONIA series, EPICON takes you one step closer to "the real thing".
The backbone of EPICON 6 is DALIs new driver technology. Featuring two 6 ½“ bass woofers, the unique Linear Drive Magnet System as well as the breakthrough ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter the sound breaks with traditional loudspeaker conventions.
The EPICON 6 relies on a 2½-way system as – compared to the EPICON 2 – it features an additional woofer kicking in below 600Hz. However, for the highest frequencies the EPICON 6 also incorporates a ribbon tweeter as part of the hybrid tweeter, in reality turning the speaker into a ‘2½ + ½-way’ construction.
World Premiere: Linear Drive Magnet System
The new innovative in-house developed Linear Drive Magnet System eliminates four distortion factors in the driver motor system. The individual parts of the magnet system close to the voice coil consist of advanced soft magnetic compound (SMC), which eliminates variation of flux strength in the magnet gap.
The SMC material features linear magnetic properties throughout the frequency range and eliminates phase variation in the force generated within the motor system. Aluminum rings around the pole piece reduce and stabilize voice coil inductance, independent of excursion. This allows optimum conversion of voltage generated by the amplifier to current flowing through the voice coil.
Meticulous attention to CNC milling of the front baffle creates more space between the 7 screws, ensuring a free airflow behind the woofers. A detail supporting our low-loss design as well as our focus on timing. Each side of the EPICON 6 is constructed from 6 individual layers of MDF, all glued together, which eliminate standing waves, enhancing detail and clarity. In the EPICON 6 these are anchored to the 53 mm multi-layer MDF backbone of the cabinet.
With a thickness of 33 mm the duallayer front baffle ensures that energy from the drivers is radiated as acoustic energy, and not as vibrations in the cabinet. The curved shape of the front baffle is also a contributing factor in ensuring a stable acoustic platform. Internally the cabinet for the EPICON 6 is divided in two identical sized chambers, allowing tuning of the cabinet to be done identically yet completely independently for each of the two woofers. Thus you will find two bass ports on the back of the cabinet located as nearby the woofers as possible. Both ports are convex tapered in both ends to minimize port turbulence.
At the very bottom of the cabinet, however, you will see that the hardwired crossover is mounted in its own enclosure as well - free from the dynamic variation of cabinet pressure inside the bass reflex enclosures.
Sit back and enjoy impeccable high frequencies and voice reproductions so lifelike that you will feel in the middle of a live performance.
