The EVO4 seriesThe EVO4 series is located between the Wharfedales Award-winning Diamond 11 series and our future flagship, the Elysian speakers. This series has been developed next to the Elysian project and comes from the same extensive research and development. With characteristics that are rarely seen on products on this price, such as the significant, well-built cupboards, the beautifully curved sides and the refined driver arrangement.
EVO4's AMT high-frequency unit produces sound in a completely different way than conventional dome testers. The ribbon technology uses a large, pleated, lightweight diaphragm, driven by a series of magnets. This is an extremely efficient and accurate method to create high-frequency sound, so that the EVO4 series has an open and smooth sounding top, without being too bright and hard.
This AMT Linttweeter is linked to a fast, responsive and detailed umbrella middle toner. These soft fabric dome is equipped with an extensive damping, venting and a specially designed back room, so that the driver can sound incredibly detailed, with a wide spread so that you can hear the music as meant, wherever you are. This midrange driver can be found on all speakers within the EVO4 range, with the exception of the EVO-4.1.
Low frequencies are treated by Wharfedales low-deformation motor system, coupled to woven kevlar cones to deliver powerful bass that you can hear as well as feel. This strong, lightweight Kevlar makes the driver both quickly and powerful, which ensures accurate and deadly bass that can be impressively low and loud when needed.
The bass extension of the EVO4 is then expanded and improved by the most advanced version of the Wharfedales Signature Slot-Loaded Bassport so far. The SLPP or Slot Loaded Profiled Port is designed to extend the bass performance of the speakers using a carefully designed port in the speaker's basis, making the evo4 speakers a lot of forgiving people with their placement, where most speakers would struggle With the bass outlet, the EVO4s will still shine.
Inside, a 6.5 inch, bidirectional, black woven kevlar cone woofer contains a natural self-damping material that reduces the resonances and distributes to extremely low levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures a flexible acoustic roll-off, so that the drivers seamlessly connect to the specially designed air motion transformer tweeter from EVO 4.2 and the silk midrange driver of two inches.
With a size of 17.9 x 9.8 x 13.8 inch (HWD) and a weight of more than 29 pounds, EVO4.2 claims a 90DB sensitivity that invites you to coupling with a wide range of amplifiers. Experience Evo 4.2 yourself with the certainty of our 100% Music Direct Warranty.
Evo 4.2 Crossover also deserves a special mention. Using specially designed computer aided optimization technology during extensive listening tests, the technicians of Wharfedale have adjusted the separation filter so accurately that Evo 4.2 reaches a balanced integration of the driver, the woofer and the tweeter - so that the loudspeaker disappears practically and your attention is established On the music program that you own. Evo4.2 is an all-rounder and offers detail where audiophiles loved and where dynamics lovers are in the house to desire.
The EVO4 cabinet is targeted from the base. Not only the sleek curves, which distinguish itself from the competition, but also the materials, composites, the internal reinforcement and damping. All this ensures that the sound character is not affected by aesthetics.
