LARGER WOOFER AND CABINET
By scaling up the cabinet and fitting a larger, 165mm, bass woofer, the Wharfedale Diamond 122 is ideal for larger rooms or simply where a deeper bass sound is preferred. The improved sensitivity over the smaller model also means higher volume levels can be achieved by lower powered amplifiers.
ALL NEW DRIVE UNITS FOR A CLASS-LEADING SOUND
The new bass driver is formed from woven Kevlar and has ribs for added rigidity. When combined, this gives the speaker a superbly accurate and precise sound quality. Vocals sound more realistic than you’d believe for a speaker of this price and the bass is upbeat and never lagging behind the rest of the mix. At the other end of the scale the treble unit is now surrounded by a deeply dished waveguide. This helps to improve the imaging and ‘width’ of sound, making it easier to pick out individual instruments. The treble also provides loads of detail without ever sounding unrefined. Put together, the overall sound quality is fantastically well-balanced and natural with a sense of realism that you might not expect from a speaker of this class.
ALL NEW CABINET WITH SLOT-LOADED DISTRIBUTION PORT FOR POWERFUL BASS
For the first time on any Diamond-range speaker, the 122 features a new style of bass reflex porting. Rather than using a simple front or rear mounted port, the 122 ports the bass via an integral plinth. This not only provides a more efficient and even bass output but also makes the speaker easier to place as you don’t have to take wall positioning into account. Finally, the speakers are bi-wirable, allowing you the option of using a 4-cored cable for even greater detail.
