Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker Package combines two pairs of compact satellite speakers for the front and rear, DX2 centre speaker and the WH-D8 active subwoofer. Designed to combat the expense and lack of space associated with high-quality home cinema systems, the Wharfedale DX-2 HCP 5.1 is discreet, sleek and affordable delivering genuine surround sound. The DX-2 HCP 5.1 speaker package delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music – fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers.
It’s the perfect way to enjoy authentic and engaging surround sound at a price more akin to a soundbar than a high-quality 5.1 speaker package.
Comprising four satellite speakers (for front and rear channels), a centre speaker and active subwoofer, this 5.1 system is a diminutive. This time around it features finely tuned drive units, a more powerful active sub and improved cabinet design. It also sports an ‘autopower’ facility, switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.
Ideal for mounting on a wall or an AV stand or shelf, the small DX-2 Satellite has 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 means the speaker can be placed 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 similarly compact cabinet. The design includes an aperiodic bass loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam.
The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer features a 20cm long-throw bass driver powered by a 70w amplifier for fast, deep and well-defined sound. The quality of the subwoofer’s design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang. It also has an ‘auto-power’ facility, automatically switching in or out of standby when a signal is sensed.
DX-2 HCP 5.1 Home Cinema system is available in black or white finish. Anyone wanting to expand to a 7.1 system or beyond can pick up extra pairs of affordable satellite speakers with the satellite expansion pack.
