An affordable solution for surround sound via the the DX-2 speaker system from Wharfedale
Consisting of four satellite speakers for the front and rear plus a compact centre speaker and an active subwoofer, the DX-2 replaces the DX-1 series of speaker packages.
Ideal for wall-mounting or on an AV stand or shelf, the DX-2 Satellite measures 19 x 12 x 12cm and incorporates a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone.
The enclosure is an infinite baffle (closed-box) design, which aids the speakers’ ability to be sited in close proximity to a wall without adversely affecting their performance.
The DX-2 Centre incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers in a 12 x 31 x 12cm cabinet. Its design includes an aperiodic bass loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam.
The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a 70W amplifier.
It also sports an ‘autopower’ facility, switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.
Available in black initially, with an alternative white finish coming soon, the DX-2 5.1 speaker package at £449.95. A satellite expansion pack is also available, priced at £99.95 per pair for a 7.1 configuration.
