WLA-312X System

WLA-312X is an advanced three-way line array speaker system capable of handling vast amounts of power -  while remaining sonically clear, precise and accurate.  Rated at 1410 watts RMS per cabinet and boasting highly efficient custom Wharfedale Pro drivers, the WLA-312X can deliver an astonishing 138 dB Max SPL @ 1 meter.  

 
Custom WP drivers have been selected to ensure that this series not only has the power you would expect, but the three-way configuration brings a new sonic dimension and definition.
 
With dual 12” woofers, a single 10” midrange driver and dual 2.55” compression drivers, the WLA-312X has everything needed for large venue coverage.  In addition, there is no need to fly subwoofers within the array - the WLA-312X has already got plenty of low-end punch.
 
The WLA-312X is designed to be controlled and tuned with either a Wharfedale Pro Versadrive signal processor or a DP-D series amplifier.  Either of these DSP systems deliver full signal routing and processing to maximise the power and sonic effect of the WLA-312X array.
 
With full steel grilles, multiple handles and 3 fly frame rigging points, WLA-312X is well suited for touring and for hard work on the road.
 
The accompanying WLA-312X Fly frame is solid!  Constructed of A3 steel it can hold up to 900kg (that’s up to 12 pcs of WLA-312X) with a safety factor of 12.

Go large
Any 3-way system needs tuning and DSP power.

The allocation of power and frequencies needs to be controlled to maximise the system output.

For this, DP-D series amplifiers are highly recommended. Huge power output and with comprehensive internal Digital Signal Processing, DP-D series amps are the perfect driving partner for the WLA-312X.

Such power and control allows for massive systems to be configured.
