  • 3″ Neodymium HF compression driver
  • 138 dB Max SPL @ 1 meter
  • Birch plywood construction
  • Integral, side plate adjustable rigging system
  • Passive and Bi-amp mode switching

WLA-210XSUB

  • Dual 15″ LF drivers
  • 145 dB Max SPL @ 1 meter
  • 18 mm birch plywood construction

The WLA-210X line array system keeps the same design philosophies as the acclaimed WLA-25 and WLA-28 systems from Wharfedale Pro. Portable, powerful and versatile line array solutions which are ideal for both touring and fixed installation applications.

Each WLA-210X element uses a pair of custom 10” Wharfedale Pro high-power low-frequency drivers, while the high frequencies are handled by a premium 3.0” titanium diaphragm, neodymium magnet compression driver coupled to a 100° x 10° waveguide.

The waveguide exit extends nearly to the top and bottom of the enclosure to create a continuous acoustical source – resulting in greatly reduced destructive interaction within the array.

The WLA-210X element also features Passive and Bi-amp modes which allows for complete system control. The bi-amp feature enables the system designer to select the best amplification for each driver component within the array. Such control, when used with external signal processing such as the Wharfedale Pro Versadrive series, gives the engineer the ultimate in system fine tuning. This, in turn, leads to the best audio output.

The WLA-210XSUB features dual 15” LF drivers with massive 4.0” voice coils. Specifically created for use with WLA-210X, this subwoofer can be flown or ground stacked easily as a result of its comprehensive rigging hardware.

Premium materials are used throughout the system. The enclosure is constructed of Baltic birch plywood and is coated in a premium and durable Rhino Rock paint. To keep the weight to a minimum and prevent rust, suspension fittings are made of aluminium.

An elegantly simple 3-point suspension system combined with light weight, compact size and excellent handling ergonomics mean that an array can easily be deployed. With the WLA-210X Common Fly frame, systems can be configured as flying or ground stacked in multiple combinations.

Dual 10"

At the heart of the WLA-210X are 2 x 10″ custom Wharfedale Pro LF drivers.

These feature 4.0″ voice coils to ensure high efficiency and high power handling.

The HF Compression driver is also custom made by Wharfedale Pro. Using a neodymium magnet and a 3.0″ voice coil, this compression driver is coupled to a 100° x 10° waveguide.

These custom designed transducers are what give a WLA-210X system its incredible sound and power handling capacity.

Optional COmmon FLY FRAME

Arrays can be assembled using only WLA-210X line array elements or with WLA-210XSUB Subwoofers at the top of the array.

The WLA-210X Common Fly frame supports up to 10 x WLA-210X elements and 1 x WLA-210XSUB OR 12 x WLA-210X with a safety factor of 12.

Just imagine

Imagine your dream system!  You can configure a WLA series rig to suit your needs!

To help your design and system preparations, you can download some recommended system diagrams.  These range from small to large and use a selection of our different amplifier ranges. 

Optimised Ground Stacking

WLA-210X rigging doubles up as an optimised ground stacking system, using the WLA-210XSUB subwoofer as a base.

Arrays of WLA-210X line array elements can be aimed downwards by as much as 10° to cover audience areas close to a stage, as well as upward by as much as 10° in order to better cover distant balcony seating areas. 

 

Bi-amp & passive modes

In BI-AMP mode, two power amplifiers can be used. This gives you the advantage of being able to select the best power amplifier specifications for each driver inside the loudspeaker. In a BI-AMP configuration, an external crossover is used to separate the frequencies and this splits the signal to the dedicated LF amplifier and the HF amplifier. This way, each amplifier is only working on the given frequency range and, in turn, is powering the corresponding driver inside the loudspeaker.

In PASSIVE mode, a single amplifier can be used to power all drivers inside the loudspeaker. The full frequency range is put into the loudspeaker and the loudspeakers’ internal crossover separates the frequencies, delivering the right frequencies to the right driver. In the example of a 2-way passive loudspeaker, this means that the single amplifier is powering both the HF compression driver and the LF transducer. The internal crossover takes care of both the frequency and power separation.

AMPS & DSP

A Versadrive DSP (such as SC-48 FIR) or a DP-N series amplifier with internal FIR filtering is highly recommended to get the most from the system.  Phase, EQ and filtering should be applied and this way, the physics of the system can be truly optimised – delivering that sub-bass, power and clarity that this system can deliver.
