DVP-X ROAD-READY LOUDSPEAKERS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR HARDWORKING PERFORMERS

  • Individually tuned front ported systems for clear, punchy bass 
  • Proprietary enhanced Rhino Rock paint for a chip resistant finish

  • Extended-range IRIS X Titanium dome HF drivers
  • High powered LF drivers using a double-roll surround
  • Fine-tuned crossovers, built in house for audio signal purity and optimised tuning 
  • HF limiters are installed for thermal protection against extreme power input 
  • 8 models in the passive line up

The DVP-X range has been specifically built for hardworking musicians and DJ’s on the road. Covering all live applications this robust line up covers all sizes from a full range 12” through to the huge 138 dB 2 x 18” subwoofer.

The MDF cabinets of DVP-X series are protected by an enhanced version of Wharfedale Pro’s proprietary Rhino Rock paint. This finish gives improved protection against chips, dinks and clunks during transportation to and from the gig. DVP-X will look as good as new even after many successful tours, parties and events. The iconic Wharfedale Pro logo is also CNC routed into the cabinet design.

But DVP-X is more than just a strong cabinet. The drivers use the latest Wharfedale Pro driver technology. For the LF drivers, a curvilinear, double-roll surround is used for smooth mid-high transitions and stability for low through to mid-range frequencies. All models have 2.5” voice coils for improved thermal dissipation.

A 44mm diaphragm IRIS X4 HF driver is used throughout the range. Using a solid aluminium rear plate, the HF driver is strengthened for durability and heat is dissipated efficiently for high pressure use during prolonged time periods. Wharfedale Pro engineers have also selected a 90° x 60° elliptical waveguide optimised for wide coverage in multiple venues while touring.

Special attention has been paid to the port and port mouth to ensure a huge bass output with detail and minimised distortion. For the floor monitors, the port mouth lies parallel to the ground, creating a reflective boundary effect to guarantee low-end delivery. Each port on each speaker has been tuned individually for low-end punch.

Full range models feature a 90° x 60° Elliptical Waveguide

In real-world terms this means that the higher frequencies can be heard with definition at 90° in the horizontal plane, and 60° in the vertical.

All full range models in the DVP-X series use this same elliptical waveguide design which makes for controllable coverage when using multiple DVP-X series loudspeakers.

routed logo

DVP-X features a routed Wharfedale Pro logo.

It is a logo to be proud of. A logo that lets your audience know that the sound of your even will be of the highest possible quality.

IRIS X Compression drivers

The coil size and electrical sensitivity of a loudspeaker transducer is critical to its performance.  Impact-X loudspeakers now include our proprietary IRIS X design which delivers Increased coil Radius and Increased electrical Sensitivity.  The radius of the coil ensures smooth heat dissipation during prolonged high volume use, while the increased electrical sensitivity ensures that the transducer converts as much electrical power into sound output as the laws of physics allow.  

A hot transducer wastes energy, risks damage and distorts.  IRIS X reduces this through improved heat dissipation and improved efficiency.

In real-world terms, IRIS X transducers deliver higher SPL with less distortion.  They lead the market with specifications and are designed and built entirely within Wharfedale Pro.
