45-Pound Center-Channel Loudspeaker Is Serious About Home Theater: Wharfedale EVO 4.C Features Two 6.5-Inch Kevlar Woofers, Plays with Crispness, Focus, Heft, and Clarity
Wharfedale takes home theater seriously. Just consider EVO 4.C, a center-channel loudspeaker packed with trickle-down technology from the U.K.-based company's top-of-the-line Elysian Series. Weighing nearly as much as the EVO 4.4 towers, EVO 4.C plays with explosive dynamics and sweet, refined upper-register detail. If you want to catch every word of critical dialogue and feel the full impact of center-stage action, EVO 4.C will elevate your movie and gaming experiences.
Equipped with dual 6.5-inch, bidirectional, black-woven Kevlar cone woofers that incorporate a self-damping material that reduces resonances to extremely low levels – as well as a fixed, profiled phase plug to ensure a smooth acoustic roll-off that enables the drivers to mesh with EVO 4.C's specially designed Air Motion Transformer tweeter and two-inch silk midrange driver – this high-value component delivers incredibly wide dispersion of high-frequencies, articulate bass, and immersive soundstaging.
EVO 4.C's crossover also deserves special mention. Using the company's custom-designed Computer Aided Optimization technology during extensive listening tests, Wharfedale engineers carefully fine-tuned the crossover to the point that EVO 4.C achieves balanced integration of its driver, woofer, and tweeter.
Measuring 9.8 x 29.5 x 13.8 inches (HWD) and weighing a shade more than 45 pounds, EVO 4.C fits in tight cabinet spaces all the while its 90dB sensitivity means it can be driven by a wide range of amplifiers. Hear EVO 4.C 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. 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 bi-directional 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.
Versatile in Application
EVO4 Series is refined to appeal to the audiophile and the home-theater enthusiast alike. 4C offers enhanced clarity of dialogue in home-cinema applications while the 4S surround speakers immerse the user in a genuine theater experience.
