Product Description

Dali Epicon Vokal Centre Speaker, the heart of the Epicon family, lets you experience every word in ultimate clarity by effortlessly reproducing human voices and delivering audio tracks with stunning realism and accuracy. Dali have developed an uncompromising centre speaker for all multi-channel fans incorporating twin 6½" woofers along with the hybrid tweeter module promising the same level of transparency and timbre as the rest of the series.

Multi-Channel

The Epicon Vokal will match any of the three main speakers, and it will benefit any setup where the realism and realistic sound pressures are required. Common to all the Epicon loudspeakers is that they work well in both 2.0, 2.1, 5.1 or other multichannel systems.

50% of the acoustic energy in a normal movie comes from the center channel. The Epicon Vokal is up to the real challenge. Meticulous timbre matching and the same ability to render finer details exactly the way they were recorded is an Epicon trademark. Here, e.g. the effortless reproduction of human voices is what sets Dali Epicon Vokal apart.

Magnet System

Epicon Vokal features Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC) material which offers high magnetic conductivity and low electrical conductivity for a dramatic reduction in distortion. The high magnetic conductivity prevents hysteresis. The electrical non-conductive nature of the SMC material eliminates the induction of modulating magnet fields in the magnet gab and significantly lowers the eddy current on the pole piece caused by the movement of the voice coil. The resulting reduction of distortion is both very clearly measurable and indeed audible.

Hybrid Tweeter

For a transparent and solid rendering of even the most subtle high frequency details the finest Dali hybrid tweeter module is employed in the Epicon Vokal combining a newly developed ultra lightweight dome tweeter and a ribbon tweeter. These form the ideal high frequency solution merging the advantages of each tweeter’s unique properties in a way Dali has spent years perfecting. Low resonance frequency, high power handling, and exceptional headroom for high sound pressure levels and extreme excursions are all characteristics of the oversized soft dome tweeter.

Incorporating an ultra-thin magnetic fluid for cooling, the fluid has a very high flux saturation point for greater power handling. This also means superb control of coil movement – even at very high sound pressure levels. The ribbon tweeter features a broad frequency band and superb dispersion in the higher frequencies. Gently rolled in above 10 kHz, the ribbon reaches full contribution from 15 kHz to well beyond 30kHz, far above the audible range. Both the soft dome and the ribbon tweeter are free of artefacts. The Hybrid Tweeter Module features an extremely smooth and wide horizontal dispersion – one of our sound design trademarks. Even the detailing of the faceplate of the tweeter module is designed for optimal horizontal dispersion.

Woofer Unit

With the background of in-depth loudspeaker driver design for years, and having engineers with loudspeaker drivers manufacturing experience in-house, Dali started up the process of establishing in-house production of drivers in 2009. The wood fibre technology has proven to be a key in reproducing the finest details and dynamics in the music with very low loss of information. Wood fibres add stiffness to very light paper cone membranes, ensuring non-uniform break-up characteristics within the material. The result is a structural stiffness showing top-class behaviour. The wood fibre cone terminates in a low-loss rubber surround that is fitted to a die cast aluminium chassis. Assembly of the cone, surround, voice coil and chassis is done in highly accurate tools for the maximum alignment accuracy.

Cabinet Structure

Working both as an acoustic tuned ‘spring’ for the drivers, as well as getting rid of reaction force (resonant) energy, the cabinet is an important part of the entire speaker system. A rigid construction is necessary to optimize the working environment for both woofers and tweeter. The front baffle, sides and top of the Epicon Vokal are heated in a process that allows us to press it into an organic shape. This design increases overall rigidity and severely reduces cabinet resonances. Furthermore standing waves are practically eliminated as there are no parallel surfaces reflecting sound waves.

With a thickness of 33mm the dual-layer 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.

Lacquered Finish

The finish of the cabinet is real wood veneer which is lacquered for a total of 10 times. And in between, each layer is hand polished to ensure a deep, high gloss and elegant surface. 10 times of lacquer also ensures a sturdy finish with a thickness of almost 2 mm. That means that the entire CNC cutting for drivers, ports and terminals is done after the paint process to ensure perfect fit.
