Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition – Limited high-end floorstanding speaker in elegant matt black

The Dali RUBICON Series loudspeaker systems are not only fantastic sounding, but also extremely elegant solutions that can be perfectly integrated into any living environment. Now, however, Dali Speaker A/S presents at least one floorstanding speaker system of the series in a special design variant, namely the Dali RUBICON 6, which is offered as a limited special model in matt black as Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition.


The Danish loudspeaker specialist Dali Speaker A/S can present an extremely exciting product line with the Dali RUBICON Series, among others. This series presents itself as a very noble loudspeaker line, which achieves a remarkable sound level at very attractive prices. Like almost all other product lines of the Danish company, the Dali RUBICON Series is of course very broadly based, as the company does not only want to cover a wide field of classic hi-fi, but also home cinema.

One loudspeaker system of the series stands out as a particularly fine solution, namely the Dali RUBICON 6 floorstanding loudspeaker system, which sempre-audio.at even called the secret star of the Dali RUBICON Series in a detailed test. In this test, the Dali RUBICON 6 proved to be a very versatile loudspeaker system, which knows how to combine sovereignty in performance and elegance in appearance with impeccable workmanship, making the price advertised particularly attractive.

Now Dali Speaker A/S is taking exactly that Dali RUBICON 6 as the basis for a special model, which in some essential features is a real speciality in the Danish product range.

With the new Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition, Dali Speaker A/S presents a special model of the Dali RUBICON 6 floorstanding loudspeaker system, which is presented completely in black, i.e. not only with a black body, but also with a black baffle and – and this is a striking feature – even with black cones of the drivers. The special model, which is only available in 444 pairs worldwide, is thus to appear a little more elegant. In addition, the developers also worked hard on the crossover and internal wiring, so that the special model Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition also differs from the serial model from a technical point of view.

It is astonishing that Dali Speaker A/S decided to use black for the special model Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition, especially considering that the red-brown membranes of the standard model are a kind of trademark for the company. The company Dali Speaker A/S, founded in 1983, has been using special wood fibre membranes in this particular colour for about 20 years…

Nevertheless, the cones of the midrange and bass drivers of the special model Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition are also made of a special wood fibre mixture. After all, this material ensures impeccable sound due to its special properties in combination with other exclusive Danish technologies.

The Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition is equipped with two low/mid-range drivers, each with a diameter of 165 mm, which ensure the appropriate depth and a rich reproduction in the mid-range in combination with a bass reflex system that works towards the rear. Once again, a Dali hybrid tweeter is responsible for the upper frequencies. In addition to a 29 mm fabric dome tweeter for the upper frequency range, a 17 x 45 mm ribbon driver is used as super tweeter.

As already mentioned, Dali Speaker A/S has been using the typical reddish shimmering wood-paper-fibre cones for the first time in more than 20 years for a uniform look. It is therefore clear that the front panel of the hybrid tweeter made of die-cast aluminium is also finished in matt black.

As we have already mentioned, it is not only the appearance that distinguishes the new Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition from the corresponding standard model. For example, the company states that pure silver litz wire is used for the internal wiring of the special model. In addition, the crossover network is also equipped with particularly high-quality components, such as capacitors from the range of the German high-end specialist Mundorf.

According to the manufacturer, the declared aim was to achieve an even finer resolution in the high and mid-tone range and to guarantee an even more precise bass reproduction.

From a purely technical point of view, the Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition is a two-and-a-half-way floorstanding loudspeaker system that can reproduce a frequency range between 38 Hz and 34 kHz. The crossover network is set at 800 Hz, 2.6 kHz and 14 kHz. With an impedance of 4 ohms, this solution is designed for amplifiers with a power output between 40 and 200 watts, whereby the sensitivity is specified as 88.5 dB.

The Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition has dimensions of 990 x 200 x 380 mm and weighs 20.2 kg. Of course, it comes with a matching black speaker grill, spikes and rubber feet.

As already mentioned, however, there will be no more than 444 pairs of the Dali RUBICON 6 Black Edition in the world, whereby these are individually numbered. So if you are enthusiastic about this special model, you should buy it as soon as possible when it becomes available. It is also important to note that this model will be available exclusively at authorised dealers at a recommended retail price of € 1,999 per piece.
