80 series

An attractive 2 way system designed for wall or shelf mounting, equally at home in a portrait or landscape orientation. The philosophy behind these loudspeakers is simple. To further extend Wharfedale’s reputation for excellent sound quality whilst employing innovative design to give a distinctive yet discrete appearance to these loudspeaker systems. 

Traditionally the loudspeaker placement in rooms has been dominated by the needs of stereo reproduction and consequently most positions are a compromise enforced by the directionality of conventional loudspeakers. However, Wharfedale’s innovative solution is to use the ‘Baker Effect’, a phenomenon first noted in the 1930’s. By mounting two HF drive units perpendicular to each other, and carefully contouring the crossover network, Wharfedale has been able to reproduce a dramatic stereo effect in almost any listening position.

 

90 Series

Developed from the outstandingly successful 2180 series, the 90 series increases the choice of speakers available for this specialist application. The 90 series offers increased power handling and impressively high sound pressure levels from a range of compact boxes. The transducers used in the 2090, 2190, 3190 & 4190 models are an 8 inch re-enforced pulp cone woofer and a 25 mm titanium dome HF unit, which is Ferrofluid cooled. All models have auto-resetting thermal overload protection of the HF transducer as standard to ensure reliability and all models deliver a frequency range of 40 Hz to 20 kHz. The powerful 8 inch woofer uses a high temperature 2 inch voice coil and a selected pulp cone whilst the 25 mm titanium dome tweeter is loaded by a wide band horn; and is protected by a re-entrant thermal overload system.

The 2090, 2190, 3190 & 4190 cabinet exterior can be re-painted to match your venue interior and blend in with the environment. Whilst the units are of a strong and rugged nature, the weight is not unmanageable with the top, bottom and rear areas on all models clear for bracket mounting. The 5090 and 5190 have a wide dispersion extra bass characteristic which is perfectly suitable for Karaoke applications. The 5090 & 5190 models are intended for wall mounting, though they can be stand mounted. They can also be flown using the fixing screws in the top. Both models are also available in a high quality piano finish (PU Version) for premium installation applications.

Brackets included

For an easy installation straight out of the box we have included  U shaped mounting brackets. The speakers can be mounted vertically or horizontally as you wish, still covering wide areas. The inputs are easily located to one side of the unit and the bracket will swivel and extend for optimum positioning.

Drill, drill, install!  Tidy!

Affordable, wide coverage audio in your environment


The 80 Series is an affordable range of installation speakers perfect for bars, restaurants, karaoke systems and retail areas. We’ve designed a unique cabinet construction, which enables wide dispersion of audio where placement is often tricky or at a compromise within its surroundings so your music or public announcements can be heard loud and clear.

'Baker Effect' Technology

 

Traditionally the loudspeaker placement in rooms has been dominated by the needs of stereo reproduction and consequently most positions are a compromise enforced by the directionality of conventional loudspeakers. 

However, Wharfedale’s innovative solution is to use the ‘Baker Effect’, a phenomenon first noted in the 1930’s. By mounting two HF drive units perpendicular to each other, and carefully contouring the crossover network, Wharfedale has been able to reproduce a dramatic stereo effect in almost any listening position.

Speech and Music, Loud and Clear

 

Smooth, extended frequency response combines with wide dynamic capabilities and low distortion to provide acoustic performance that makes the unit idea for music playback. The speaker systems also deliver sufficient mid and high end clarity for vocals and speech for public announcements. 

By using proprietary designed units and modern manufacturing, all the aspects of sound and economics within the commercial market are met: clarity, voice intelligibility, controlled sound coverage, tested reliability and the support of a company with nearly seventy years expertise in sound reproduction are standard.
