It's Evolution, Baby! Wharfedale EVO 4.2 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Do Dedicated Stereo and Versatile Home-Theater Duty, Feature 6.5-Inch Woofer and Deliver Impact, Imaging, and Detail

Enjoy the impactful slam of a tower along with the superior imaging of a top-quality monitor with the Wharfedale's EVO 4.2 bookshelf loudspeaker. Incorporating innovative engineering learned over its 80-plus years as an audio company, Wharfedale created a compact three-way model that produces layers of luxurious detail, a punchy midrange, and sonorous bass. Endowed with technology from Wharfedale's Elysian flagship, it can fill an entire room with rich, colorful sound that belies its size.

Inside, a 6.5-inch, bidirectional, black-woven Kevlar cone woofer incorporates a naturally self-damping material that reduces and distributes resonances to extremely low levels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures smooth acoustic roll-off that enables the drivers to seamlessly mesh with EVO 4.2's specially designed Air Motion Transformer tweeter and two-inch silk midrange driver.

EVO4.2's crossover also deserves special mention. Using custom-designed Computer Aided Optimization technology during extensive listening tests, Wharfedale engineers carefully fine-tuned the crossover to the point that EVO 4.2 achieves balanced integration of its driver, woofer, and tweeter – allowing the speaker to practically disappear and draw your attention to the music program at hand. An all-rounder, EVO4.2 provides the detail audiophiles love and the dynamics home-theater enthusiasts crave.

Measuring 17.9 x 9.8 x 13.8 inches (HWD) and weighing a shade more than 29 pounds, EVO4.2 claims a 90dB sensitivity that invites pairing with a wide range of amplifiers. Experience EVO 4.2 for yourself with the security of our 100% Music Direct Guarantee.

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.

Finely Tuned
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.
