Wharfedale Evo 4.2 Speakers (Pair)
Wharfedale’s new Evo 4 has grown out of the extensive research and development that produced the Elysian flagship loudspeakers and borrows much of the technology involved in Elysian.
The primary focus is on the AMT development resulting in a radically different way of reproducing high frequency detail efficiently and accurately. Similar cabinet technology to Elysian provides a stable and solid foundation for the drive units with radiused edges to help integrate the driver output with the room acoustics. In addition the unique SLPP bass reflex system, as developed for Elysian, is now incorporated in Evo 4.
Beauty with Purpose
The EVO4 cabinet is purpose designed from the ground-up. Not just the sleek curves, which stand out from the competition, but the materials, composites, internal bracing and damping too, for instance. All of this ensures the sonic character is not compromised by aesthetic.
The AMT (Air Motion Transformer) high-frequency transducer excels above any rival model within this class. The point-source replicating, high volume air movement results in lower distortion and higher accuracy in HF reproduction.
Articulate and accurate bass is perfected by the bidirectional weaved Kevlar cones, a material that is naturally self-damping to reduce and distribute resonances to virtually negligible levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures smooth acoustic roll off, further aiding integration with the AMT HF unit and midrange drivers.
As per the uncompromising workflow and standard of Wharfedale loudspeaker development, hundreds of hours of listening plus custom designed Wharfedale Computer Aided Optimization technology allows for the fine tuning of the crossover, perfecting the combination of the driver selection for ultimate performance.
