About the PHANTOM S-80 Speakers

The most compact of DALI's PHANTOM range, the PHANTOM S-80 in wall speaker convenient for any placement in your sound system. With its sleek design, the in wall speaker can produce a full frequency response without compromising your valuable living space. Conceal your sound system into the walls with an aesthetically pleasing white paintable grille. With the use of renowned speaker technologies including Dali’s characteristic wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surround and their superior innovative magnetic design including a SMC pole piece, the S-80 also doesn’t compromise on sound quality.

Dali have optimised the primary 8” wood fibre woofer for both bass and mid-range performance. Working parallel with the rotatable hybrid tweeter module, the S-80 delivers a clear and well-defined audio reproduction including a surprising bass performance. The PHANTOM S-180 really stands out from the crowd.


The specially developed 8” woofer used in the PHANTOM S-80 was designed and optimized for both bass and midrange performance. DALI chose to base the core of the woofer on the SMC magnet system developed for the EPICON range. SMC was chosen for its unique ability of dramatically lowering the level of distortion. Offering 70% more surface area, the 8” woofer is able to move more air and deliver a higher sound pressure at very low frequencies compared to a traditional 6½” woofer. All this whilst still delivering detailed information, rich midrange sound and a full frequency response as of a traditional floorstanding speaker.

The rotatable hybrid tweeter module in the PHANTOM S-80 is the perfect high frequency solution, as it combines a soft dome tweeter with a ribbon tweeter. This ensures an amazing rendering and dispersion of the high frequencies that outperforms other tweeter technologies. Both the soft dome and the ribbon tweeter are free of artefacts - e.g. resonances and high Q peaks - within their working range. The hybrid tweeter module features an extremely smooth and wide horizontal dispersion - one of DALI's sound design trademarks. Even the detailing of the faceplate for the tweeter module is designed for optimal horizontal dispersion.

The characteristics of the soft dome tweeter are low resonance frequency, high power handling, extreme excursions, and exceptional headroom for high sound pressure levels. The magneto-static ribbon tweeter trademark is being a true master in horizontal distribution of high frequencies, and a superb partner for the soft dome tweeter’s unique ability to reproduce frequencies from 2 kHz upwards.


The compact design of the PHANTOM S-80 fits into most standard walls. It was a challenge constructing such a shallow back cabinet - only 103 mm deep - with such a small footprint, and still achieving the perfect inner volume for the woofer. The cabinet is constructed from a solid MDF that holds the easy-to-use dogleg mounting system and the terminals. The front of the PHANTOM S-80 integrates elegantly with the wall via the surrounding extruded aluminium frame, and the magnet mounted front grille forms the visual presence of the PHANTOM S series. The discreet, simple, but modern design is non-intrusive and at the same time pleasing to the eye.

Key Features:

  • WIDE DISPERSION - All speakers by DALI are designed around the principle of wide dispersion. This entails an off-axis optimisation of the audio reproduction. The technology is perfect for use in install speakers, since they are always mounted flush against either a wall or ceiling.
  • SLIM CABINET - One of their goals for the PHANTOM S and M models was to create high-end in-wall speakers with a slim profile that allowed for maximum flexibility when installed. They achieved this by keeping the cabinet depths at only 100-103 mm, which fits into almost any standard wall.
  • SMC TECHNOLOGY - Advanced Soft Magnetic Compound (SMC), which eliminates variation of flux strength in the magnet gap. It reduces distortion to a minimum compared to conventional drivers.
  • MAGNETIC GRILLE - The magnetic floating front grille forms the visual presence of the PHANTOM S and M speakers. The discreet, simple, but modern Nordic design is non-intrusive and at the same time pleasing to the eye.
