The EVO4 series
The 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 at 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 Ribbon Tweeter 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.
AMT (Air Motion Transformer) Inverter: The Wharfedale EVO 4.1 Bookshelf speaker uses a specially designed 1,1875" x 2,375" AMT (Air Motion Transformer) transducer for his own silky high frequency reproduction. The design of the AMT makes it possible to move a higher air volume during implementation than with a conventional soft dome tid. This higher pressure, which is stimulated by the principles of the AMT design, offers improved HF display of point sources with lower deformation properties than conventional tweeters. This is reflected in the stunning and pure brightness of the musical performance of all EVO 4.1 bookshelf speakers.
Kevlar woofer: artificial and accurate bass display is perfected by the bi-directional woven kevlar cone 5" woofer of the evo 4.1. Kevlar is a material that is naturally damping to reduce and divide resonances to virtually negligible levels. In addition, a Fixed, profiled phase plug for a flexible acoustic roll, which improves the integration with the AMT high-frequency transducer from the speaker even more.
Optimized crossover network: the output of the tweeter and the woofer is carefully combined by a thoroughly investigated crossover that has been developed using Wharfedale's computer aided optimization technology. Every crossover is carefully evaluated using a wide range of music, the emphasis on the lifelike representation of voices and instruments in addition to the dynamics of the musical version.
The EVO4 line of Wharfedale uses technology and design elements that have been developed for the company's flagship, the Elysian line. The 4.1s are equipped with an advanced folded ribbon tasting that produces silky high frequencies, and a 5 "woven Kevlar Woofer offers a solid bass display. The drivers are housed in a few curved bass reflex cabinets that are carefully designed with internal reinforcements to dampen the vibrations.
Target-oriented Cabinet Design: The cabinet of Wharfedale EVO 4.1 is specially designed to ensure the sound character and the beautiful appearance of the cabinet. The cabinet is made up of high-quality materials and composites with internal cushioning and reinforcement. Curved cabinet design spreads the sound of the drivers accurately in your listening space and prevents standing waves in the cupboard that can color and blur the sound. The cabinet is available in a black, white and walnut finish. It comes with an acoustic transparent cloth grille that is magnetically attached to the front of the speaker cabinet.
Slot-Loaded Distributed Port Design: The EVO 4.1 uses a slot-loaded distributed port design, wherein the internal gate tube opens in a slot that is formed between the speaker cabinet and the base. This reduces turbulence and audible "chuffing" of conventional gate systems, caused by the sudden burst of high-pressure air in low pressure in space. Another advantage is the increased efficiency of the energy transfer of the bass reflex tuning to the space. Both ends of the gate are provided with a semi-parabolic input and output curve that controls the air flow through the gate tube and allows a higher air volume into the system loaded with slots for a further improvement of the low-frequency output performance of the speaker.
Double binding poles: The EVO 4.1 Bookshop speaker has two sets of binding stations that are connected to jumper plates. The binding piles are suitable for bare thread (up to 10AWG), pin connections, spade connections and banana plugs (single). With the help of these double binding poles you can bi-amping the speakers or bi-wires. BI cabling or bi-amping the speaker ensures a better performance of the low and high tones.
Bi-wiring: BI cabling can ensure noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your speakers. Enter separate speaker cables to the low and high frequency drivers of a single amplifier (the upper set of binding piles is for the high frequency drivers; the lower set of binding piles is for the low frequency drivers).
Bi-amping: With Bi-Amping you can use individual amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your speaker for a larger dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your individual amplifiers have the same reinforcement to maintain the voice balance of the speaker.
2CH Stereo placement: The EVO 4.1 can be used in a 2ch stereo music application. Try to place the speakers at the same distance (6.5 'to 13') from each other and the main listening position. The loudspeakers should ideally be placed so that the bemons are approximately at an ear height up to a seated listener. The speakers must be "stripped" or at an angle (15 ° to 40 °) in the headlayper position.
Placement in the home theater: the EVO 4.1 can be used as front and/or surround speakers in a home cinema application. When used as a front speakers, they must be placed at the same distance on either side of the television screen (6.5 to 13 'apart) and placed on ear height. The front speakers must be placed slightly diagonally (22° to 30°) so that they are directed to the main listening space.
When used as Surround speakers, they must be placed in a higher position, behind the headset position at an angle (135 ° to 150 °) or on the side of the headset position at an angle (90 ° to 110 °). If the back or side walls are removed from the head lugging, you can consider placing the speakers on a standard.
