The totally unique PHANTOM H-120 in-wall speaker brings the best, and then some, from a traditional big floor standing speaker, but is mounted in your wall. With an unprecedented 12” woofer to deliver deep and powerful bass, and a separate 5” woofer to handle the important mid-range area, this 3-way speaker delivers like no other in-wall speaker in the world. Perfect for installations where normal floor-standing speakers or an external subwoofer cannot be used, or when deep, room filling bass is essential.
The PHANTOM H series
The DALI PHANTOM H series is an in-wall speaker build around traditional loudspeaker technologies. At its centre is the easy to recognize the DALI woofer cone made from a mix of paper pulp and wood fibre. This gives the cone a light, well behaved, but random structure that helps reproduce even the smallest details in the music.
The powerful low-loss magnet system deliver precision and timing to the low frequencies and the ultra lightweight soft dome tweeter adds great resolution to the high frequencies. Together they blend into a very coherent, highly detailed, clear and natural soundstage. The PHANTOM H series is a true full range speaker and needs no supplement subwoofer - it is all about true hi-fi sound, versatility, and flexibility.
Bringing the virtues of a traditional box speaker to the install segment, the DALI PHANTOM H series are able to combine compact design with quality performance. The drivers are securely mounted in the ridged front baffle with the tweeter placed close to the woofer for optimum integration. The H-120 front baffle is constructed from solid MDF which offers the drivers a solid base to work within. This ridged baffle material keeps the drivers in place, removing unwanted vibrations and ensuring optimum integration with the wall or ceiling.
The PHANTOM H series 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 H series 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.
Every component in the crossover is carefully selected for their audiophile quality and the crossover is designed especially for the PHANTOM H-120 model. All PHANTOM H series models include PTC (Polymeric Positive Temperature Coefficient device) safety function. This safeguards the driver components from overheating if played at very loud volumes over a long period. Install speakers are often played to fill more than just the room they are mounted in, so If the listener is in another room the volume can accidently be turned up to extremely high levels, and therefore permanently damage the speakers. The PTC system will prevent this for happening, since it acts like a fuse if the current gets too high.
All internal wiring is optimized for the speaker design and is placed and secured to eliminate the possibility of rattling. The terminals are placed directly on the crossover for the shortest possible signal path, and the spring loaded grip ensures the best possible long lasting connection to the speaker wire.
A large part of the DALI sonic definition comes from the use of a soft dome tweeter. The ferrite driven magnet motor system is able to handle more power and disperses heat generated in the voice coil rapidly, thereby reducing power compression.
The ultra light-weight weave fabric combined with the very capable magnet motor system allows the tweeter to reproduce high frequencies with higher accuracy, giving the PHANTOM H-120 an impressively detailed sound.
The positioning of the tweeter front plate near the dome has been optimised to create the optimal working conditions for the soft dome. The aim is to combine an extended frequency response with wide dispersion and low colouration, and improve the integration of both the tweeter and the mid/bass driver
A true Hi-Fi speaker is able to deliver a believable soundstage, render even the smallest micro detail in the audio signal without colouration while letting the amplifier do all the work. DALI has designed the woofers in the PHANTOM H-120 to meet these and many more demands. By basing the woofer around the trademark DALI material, the lightweight and very well behaved wood fibre cone, we lay the ground work for reproducing every small detail in the music, delivering a high resolution mid range and the precise and coherent bass DALI is well known for.
To support this even further the cone terminates in a low-loss rubber surround and both the surround and the spider holding the cone-assembly are optimized for long excursions. All this is controlled by a powerful magnet motor system that ensures that the cone-assembly can start and stop promptly. Double magnets work on the 25 or 30 mm voice coils and together they deliver a high magnetic flux. The large voice coil diameter furthermore helps increase power handling.
