Your Ticket to Bringing the Movie Theater Center Stage to Your Own Home: Dali Vokal Center-Channel Loudspeaker Delivers Precise, Detailed, and Focused Sound, Features Two 5.25-Inch Woofers
Tailored to seamlessly pair with any other speakers in the Dali Oberon Series, the Oberon Vokal center-channel loudspeaker stamps your ticket for engrossing home-theater and surround-sound fun. Precise, transparent, detailed, and focused, Oberon Vokal leans on an Dali-manufactured 1.15-inch soft-dome tweeter and two 5.25-inch SMC-based wood-fiber woofers to perform much bigger and more robust than its 6.33 x 17.36 x 11.61-inch (HWD) dimensions suggest. Vokal also plays with lower harmonic, mechanical, and third-order distortion than most center-channel models in its class. Credit Dali's patented SMC disk, internal parts, and crossover geometry – factors that go a long way towards explaining Oberon Series' high-value merit and easy-to-position flexibility. Oberon Vokal's contemporary looks and color options complete a design primed to be true to its name and deliver vocals with exciting, immersive characteristics and help bring the movie theater center stage in your home. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
Dedicated 5.25-Inch Woofers for the Bass and Midrange
Built to reproduce the delicate midrange and bass frequency area, the two 5.25-inch SMC-based Vokal woofers are constructed from a blend of fine grain paper pulp and reinforced with wood fibers, a combination that creates a stiff, lightweight, and well-behaving structure. In concert with a low-loss surround and spider suspension, the cone reproduces micro-details in the signal with high accuracy. The membrane terminates in a rubber surround chosen for its soft, flexible properties. This gives the membrane free movement with a very low dampening effect, and leaves the magnet motor to control the membrane movement.
Patented Woofer Technology: Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC)
With the use of SMC in Oberon Vokals's woofer, mechanical distortion caused by hysteresis and eddy currents gets greatly reduced. The improvement in the magnet motor system results in a lowering of the third-order distortion. This allows Oberon Vokal to present longer listening pleasure with a relaxed midrange and a surprising amount of detailing for the class. The magnet motor itself consists of a large ferrite magnet that surrounds a pole piece made with a unique combination of iron and SMC. The iron ferrite forms the lower base of the pole cylinder, topped off with a 10mm SMC disk to crown the pole piece. The combination minimizes the negative effects of the iron, while placing the SMC disk right in the main working area of the four-layer voice coil. Such placement ensures the maximum effect from the SMC on the voice coils environment, resulting in a greatly improved constant flux field.
Dali-Manufactured Custom Tweeter
The 29mm ultra-light soft-dome tweeter is manufactured by Dali and has been developed specifically for Oberon Series. The large size of the membrane lets the tweeter generate higher sound pressure with less excursion, keeping the voice coil motion to a precise minimum. The oversized membrane is constructed based on an ultra-light wave weave fabric and additionally optimized for a larger bandwidth in its lower-frequency area. This ensures optimal handover from the midrange woofer to the tweeter, creating a well-balanced, unforced, and coherent upper midrange. Compared to most soft-dome tweeters, the dome material is less than half the weight (0.060 mg/mm2). The tweeter front plate near the dome is designed with similar geometry as Dali's Opticon and Rubicon tweeters to create the optimal working conditions for the soft dome. The aim is to combine an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low coloration.
Attractive and Functional Cabinets
Oberon Vokal's cabinet construction is comprised of high-density CNC-machined MDF board dressed in carefully selected high-grade vinyl. The very rigid construction of the cabinet is due to solid bracings across the inside for reinforcement. This improves the stiffness and practically eliminates resonance within the cabinet. Dali optimized the timing by fitting the speakers with acoustic damping material internally along the sides, top and bottom. It creates a more direct contact between woofer and bass port. The audible result is a more precise bass and increased attack in the midrange. Vokal's bass port is are placed on the front baffle to support different placement options.
