Turn your living room into a world-class movie theatre. Experience every word, shout or whisper in ultimate clarity with the movie star of the DALI EPICON family, the VOKAL centre speaker - effortlessly reproducing human voices and delivering audio tracks with stunning realism and accuracy. DALI have developed an uncompromising centre speaker for all of you multi-channel fans - the DALI EPICON VOKAL. Incorporating 2 x 6½” woofers along with the hybrid tweeter module this speaker promises the same level of transparency and timbre matching with the rest of the series.
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.
Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC) material offers exactly the right physical properties. Very high magnetic conductivity and very low electrical conductivity. The result is a dramatic reduction in distortion caused by mechanical loss in the magnet system. The high magnetic conductivity is instrumental in more or less eliminating the frequency depended effect of hysteresis. The electrical non-conductive nature of the SMC material eliminates the induction of modulating magnet fields in the magnet gap and significantly lowers the eddy current on the pole piece caused by the movement of the voice coil.
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 30 kHz, far above the audible range. Both the soft dome and the ribbon tweeter are free of artefacts, e.g. resonances and high Q peaks within their working range. 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.
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.
A rigid construction is necessary to optimise 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 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.
