WH- Neo A trio....of neo

  • Lightweight and high powered Neodymium HF and LF drivers
  • Large custom LF drivers with 3″ voice coils (WH-12 Neo & WH-15 Neo)
  • 15mm birch plywood construction
  • 19 x M8 rigging points
  • Full steel grille

  • Rotatable front grill logo

Introducing 3 passive loudspeakers for discerning installations.

The WH-NEO series consists of 3 models (10”, 12” and 15”) and have been designed for installations where dispersion angles and consistent SPL are essential.

Using NEO magnets in both the HF compression driver and the LF transducer, the WH-NEO’s are comparatively lightweight and easy for the installer to handle. The LF uses a cast aluminium basket to strike a perfect balance between weight and rigidity. The titanium HF compression driver has increased radius and increased sensitivity (IRIS) and uses the rear aluminium plate to improve heat dissipation during prolonged periods of high power.

The 12” and 15” models also feature massive 3” LF voice coils. Once again this improves heat dissipation and increases power handling.

Coverage angles are different to other installation models in the Wharfedale Pro lineup. With a 70° x 70° rounded waveguide, the dispersion characteristic of the WH-NEO is smooth and consistent. This consistency of coverage makes an installation more predictable for the installer and system integrator.

All models feature 19 * M8 rigging points which allow for accurate positioning and superb versatility within the venue.

Birch PLywood

All WH-Neo models use premium Baltic birch plywood construction.

Not only does this create a solid and durable cabinet, but it also contributes to the overall sound and character.

WH-Neo is also covered in our most durable and hard wearing Rhino Rock paint finish. This ensures that a WH-Neo will always look as good as the day you unboxed it.

SOlid as a rock

As with all Wharfedale Pro PA systems, years of expertise is behind a loudspeaker built to last, with thanks to our high standards of quality control.

The WH-Neo series are coated in the highest quality Rhino Rock paint finish – a chip resistant texture with a professional, discrete aesthetic whilst being prepared for the rigours of life on the road.

RounDed waveguides

The Neo HF compression driver is supported by a smooth 70° x 70° rounded waveguide.

This HF dispersion leads to a predictable HF response, allowing for multi-speaker installations to be planned, without any surprises!

NEO Drivers

The custom LF drivers inside the WH-Neo use neodymium as a magnet material. This improves efficiency and reduces overall weight.

Another critical element is the size of the voice coil and NH-Neo boasts some of the largest voice coils in their category.

WH-10Neo has a 2.5″ voice coil while the rest of the lineup (WH-12Neo and WH-15Neo) feature 3″ voice coils.

These larger than usual voice coils allow for the WH models to handle high power situations easily.

Rotatable logo badge

To allow the WH-Neo to fit into any environment, the front badge logo can be rotated.

This means that the WH-Neo can be mounted vertically or horizontally without compromising the appearance.

Rear porting

Carefully tuned rear ports allow the WH-Neo to deliver smooth mid-low frequencies that can usually only be heard from loudspeakers with a larger cabinet size.

When positioned either near a wall or in a corner of a room, these ports help to enhance the lower frequencies, even at low volume.
