At CEDIA Expo 2023 Lenbrook Americas, a specialty distributor of high-performance and high-value audio components, is introducing new components to complete the premium DALI Phantom series: the PHANTOM IW SUB S-100 and PHANTOM CI AMP 2500 DSP. These two products join the comprehensive range of CI loudspeakers that offer customizable Hi-Fi audio solutions while providing high-quality sound performance. The DALI PHANTOM IW SUB S-100 is a low-profile subwoofer that provides installation flexibility and is available for $2,399 USD/$2,999 CAD. The PHANTOM CI AMP-2500 DSP provides intricate tuning customization and is available for $2,999 USD/$3,899. Both products are available to view and demo at the Lenbrook Americas booth (#3516) at CEDIA Expo 2023.
Developed from the ground up by DALI for ultimate performance, the PHANTOM IW SUB S 100 subwoofer is based on the same principles as the K-60 LP bass driver. The 10-inch low profile and versatile in-wall sub features a stiff, custom aluminum cone that unites long throw capability with an ultra-shallow profile and sealed enclosure. This is the first DALI speaker to include the CSS (Constant Surface Surround) technology which is co-developed by Purifi Audio, Denmark. The technology offers a unique surround geometry of alternating positive and negative regions to keep surround modulation to a minimum. This allows the surround surface sound to be constant no matter the position of the diaphragm.
The PHANTOM SUB S-100 has been developed alongside and is to be amplified by the PHANTOM CI AMP-2500 DSP. This ensures compatibility and maximizes performance potential to achieve consistent performance in any installation. The PHANTOM CI AMP-2500 DSP features 2,500 watts of Class-D amplification enabling effortless power with extremely high efficiency and ultra-low distortion. This rack-mountable powerhouse can also be bridged into a 1,000 watt mono amp and features an adaptive fan control to keep fan noise to a minimum.
The CI AMP-2500 DSP has immense headroom making it the perfect power source for the PHANTOM S and M series or allowing for up to four PHANTOM IW SUB S-100 in-wall subwoofers. The amp also includes fully featured DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and configurator web interface. The built-in DSP is tailored via model specific presets to optimize DALI CI models for the best possible sound for each audio installation. The system can be configured wired or wirelessly with access to the DALI CONFIGURATOR app for quick and easy audio system setup via a smartphone. The app enables the user to manage sound zones, inputs/outputs, firmware updates, import of speaker presets and access to professional EQ settings.
“With the new in-wall sub and CI Amplifier we are now able to offer a complete DALI CI Home Cinema solution, which is an important step for us in order to deliver the ultimate experience,” says Krestian Pedersen, DALI’s Head of Product Management.
