The Powerful Younger Sibling The two channel speaker features a 6 ½“ bass driver and a soft cone dome tweeter. In fact, the technological break-throughs designed for the larger EPICON 6 and EPICON 8 DALI speakers have been channelled into the EPICON 2 speakers to create a product that performs way beyond its size expectations.
EPICON 2 are the DALI speakers that demonstrate perfectly what this new series is all about: Minimal signal degradation… or put bluntly: Transparency and revelation taken to an - until now – unseen level! This speaker demonstrates a highly linear and coherent response and integrates well with small to medium sized rooms. The woofer roll-off is slow and the speaker reaches deep into the lowest frequencies. All in all, in most setups this will sound like a much larger speaker than it really is. Within its working range the DALI EPICON 2 speakers will fully match the performance quality of its larger siblings, the EPICON 6 and EPICON 8. This is the new compact speaker for the purist seeking high-performance.
The Cabinet 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. Each side of the EPICON 2 is constructed from 6 individual layers of MDF, all glued together. In the EPICON 2 these are anchored to the 53 mm multi-layer MDF backbone of the cabinet. CNC milling process is applied for making the recess and holes for the bass ports and terminals in the backbone. With a thickness of 33 mm 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.
