Reason-X12

THREE-WAY SYSTEM - with matching subs.

Built exclusively to deliver incredible sonic definition at high volumes, Reason-X series brings new concepts and new qualities to become the premium pro audio loudspeaker series in the Wharfedale Pro portfolio.

The full range models (X12 and X15) feature an all-new Polyethylene flat diaphragm neodymium HF. This highly engineered Z38 HF compression driver brings extreme HF clarity.   Enormous cooling fins disperse the heat generated and the unique 1.5 inch ring-shaped polyethylene flat diaphragm delivers a precious feeling of space and air to high frequencies.

The 100° x 70° waveguide is also rotatable, making Reason-X suitable for high quality installations and touring.

The mid-range comes from a custom Wharfedale Pro 8” driver with an aluminium basket and ferrite magnet and it delivers a warmth and clarity.  Meanwhile, the LF driver boasts a 3.0” voice coil and large φ190mm ferrite magnet.  This 3-way combination gives the Reason-X series full range models a frequency response and audio definition that simply has to be experienced.

The series is completed by 2 subwoofers.  A single 18” and a floor destroying 148dB Max SPL dual 18”.  New LF drivers have been created which feature NOMEX spiders for extreme suspension and durability.  4.0” voice coils and a newly designed aluminium basket make these LF transducers impossible to describe in words - they need listening to instead!

All models are constructed of premium baltic birch and use thick steel front grilles for extreme durability.

REASON-X SERIES.  
Put simply…3 is better than 2 !

3-way design
With dedicated components for each of the main bandwidths, 3-way systems bring enhanced frequency definition to the listening experience.

Z38
The full range models (X12 and X15) feature an all-new Polyethylene flat diaphragm neodymium HF.

This highly engineered Z38 HF compression driver brings extreme HF clarity.

Enormous cooling fins disperse the heat generated and the unique 1.5 inch ring-shaped polyethylene flat diaphragm delivers a precious feeling of space and air to high frequencies.

Advanced HF compression driver technology which deliveries breathtaking results.
Rotatable waveguide
A handy feature is the rotatable waveguide which allows Reason-X full range models to be used in the vertical or horizontal plane.

100° x 70° OR 70° x 100° - the Horizontal and Vertical dispersion can easily be changed.
