Product description

The DALI PHANTOM S-280 offers the ultimate performance when it comes to custom install loudspeakers - without sacrificing valuable living room space. With the use of proven speaker technologies, such as our characteristic wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surround, solid MDF front baffle, and superior magnet design - combined with our latest innovation including a SMC pole piece and our signature hybrid tweeter module - it delivers a no compromise in-wall audio performance out of this world.

The two primary 8” woofers are optimised for both bass and mid-range performance, and to further enhance the bass performance, we have paired them with two 10” passive woofers. This results in a full frequency response similar to that of a boxed floorstanding speaker, which ensures that the PHANTOM S-280 really stands out from the crowd.

The ultra slim cabinet design fits into almost any standard wall. All models are built around a rotatable hybrid tweeter module making them easy to install for any audio use – be it stereo, centre channel or surround.

CABINET DESIGN
The PHANTOM S-280 features a slim cabinet that fits into almost any standard wall. Constructing a shallow back cabinet was a challenge in several ways. With a depth of only 103 mm (4 inches), getting the perfect inner volume for the woofers had to be found both in the height and width of the speaker, but also internally.

The front of the PHANTOM S-280 integrates elegantly with the wall via the surrounding extruded aluminium frame. The picture frame design helps to ensure a large termination point between speaker and wall without a visually dominating footprint.

The magnet mounted front grille forms the visual presence of the PHANTOM S-280. The discreet, simple, but modern design is non-intrusive and at the same time pleasing to the eye.

The cabinet is constructed from a solid MDF that holds the easy-to-use dogleg mounting system and the terminals. The rear MDF chamber is entirely wrapped in a high quality black vinyl to complete the look from the painted front baffle. The entire cabinet is designed with a thickness solid enough to avoid resonance.

WIDE DISPERSION
By designing our drivers for wide dispersion, we make our loudspeakers easy to integrate into any room, delivering a smooth and well integrated sound for a wider listening position.

This technology is perfect for the PHANTOM S-280, since it is always mounted flush against a wall.

Working with the off-axis optimisation ensures that the listener will have a large sweet spot where the soundstage is perfect, but also ensures high quality sound away from the central sweet spot.

By optimising the audio signal for off-axis distribution, both the direct signal and the reflected signal will have the same high quality. This means a consistent high quality of sound, across a much wider listening area.

The uniform dispersion over a wide range of listening angles ensure a smooth, uniform energy distribution within the listening room, which is another crucial factor for a coherent and well balanced tonality.

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.
