Product description

This model is the perfect all-around loudspeaker. Its compact size makes it easy to place, but it is still big enough to deliver a full and complete audio experience. Use it for a stereo setup in a kitchen or family room, or to complete a home cinema in a larger room as side or rear loudspeakers.

The PHANTOM E series
The DALI PHANTOM E-60 is designed for optimum in-ceiling use, but will also work if mounted in-wall. It is all about true hi-fi sound, versatility, and flexibility. The compact construction and the easy-to-use compass positioning guide makes it straight forward to place the speaker for the optimum sound experience. Two discreet switches offer audio adjustment options to ensure that the listener gets the most from the speakers, even in rooms that traditionally are difficult.

The tilted woofer and the slightly off-centre soft dome tweeter blend gracefully and produce a richly detailed and crisp soundstage. The polypropylene cone is more resilient towards humidity than the traditional DALI wood fibre cone material, making the PHANTOM E-60 flexible in regards to placement in covered outdoor areas and bathrooms.

Optionally, the PHANTOM E-60 can be fitted with a square front grill.

DESIGN
The PHANTOM E-60 introduces improvements to the basic design of the front baffle by adding extra thickness to the outer edges for a tighter and more secure fit against the mounting area. This also helps the overall strength and rigidity of the speaker.

The dogleg mounting system makes the install process an easy one step action. Simply insert the PHANTOM E-60 in the prepared mounting area, and from the front of the speaker tighten the dedicated screws to swing out the dogleg brackets and tighten them against the back of the mounting surface. If the mounting surface is extra thick reversing the dogleg makes it possible to expand the mounting grip to 70mm.

The PHANTOM E-60 front grilles have been updated to meet the style demands of the install customer. The new sleek design helps the speaker integrate perfectly into the surroundings.

WIDE DISPERSION
All DALI speakers are designed around the principle of wide dispersion. This entails an off-axis optimisation of the audio reproduction. The off-axis optimisation helps deliver the music or movie audio to the larges possible part of the room. This technology is perfect for use with install speakers, since they are always mounted flush against either a wall or a ceiling. Working with the off-axis optimisation ensures that the listener will have a large sweet spot there the soundstage is perfect, but also that the sound received when away from the sweet spot is still of a very high quality.

The PHANTOM E-60 has two audio settings that can be used to adjust the performance of the speaker. Focus/Distribute: This toggle enables the tweeter module to disperse the high frequencies better. If the normal listing position is close to the speaker, no more than 25 degrees off-axis, the Focus setting should be used for the best possible experience. If, on the other hand, the normal listing position is beyond 25 degrees off-axis, the Distribute setting can be engaged to help the tweeter disperse the high frequency father. This will improve the audio experience at odd angles in the room.

Normal/HF Tilt: When placing two speakers at a great distance from each other, creating a good soundstage can be difficult to achieve. To improve the audio experience under these conditions, DALI has included the possibility to add an extra 3dB to the high frequency output, to enable the sound to travel further. In many cases, this will help deliver a better soundstage even under extreme conditions.

Concept

PHANTOM is the suffix for all built-in DALI speakers and related install accessories. If In-Wall/-Ceiling or On-Wall is your preferred speaker setup, DALI is able to cover almost any need you may have.

The DALI PHANTOM series is the natural choice when seeking a true Hi-FI install audio experience. These In-wall and In-Ceiling optimised series are built around many of the traditional speaker design virtues and based upon DALI’s low-loss technologies.
