Wharfedale Diamond series has a number of enhancements designed to optimise performance in this area of the market;

The bass and midrange drivers in the Diamond Series utilise a basket with a network of ribs that maintain the sturdy build of the basket while leaving a large open area behind the cone. The rigid construction enhances transient impact while the large open area minimises early reflections to the cone and enables the roomy, bespoke internal cabinet absorbent to do its work. The Diamond 11 Series speakers also enjoy huge magnet designs that raise sensitivity and allow absolute control of cone movement over lower bass frequencies.

High-frequency performance has been similarly enhanced with a newly evolved tweeter design. Again, an over-sized ceramic magnet system is used, with a copper cap for flux control. And, here, the pole piece is vented through to a specially shaped rear chamber. This provides a low resonant frequency, ensuring excellent linearity throughout the operating system and allowing the textile dome to contribute to a lucid midrange performance in addition to precise high-frequency detailing.

The drive units at the centre of the loudspeaker system would be nothing without the integration of an accurately derived crossover. Wharfedale’s engineers have created a series of circuit options for combining the bass/midrange and treble units seamlessly by utilising a virtual crossover software system. These circuit options are then judged using stringent listening tests involving different types of music.

Major attention has been lavished upon ensuring the lifelike qualities of vocals and natural instruments are portrayed accurately, as these are always one of the parameters that listeners’ hone in on to appraise a loudspeaker’s performance.

The latest generation of Wharfedale Diamond 11.3 Speakers includes design elements never previously seen at such affordable price points.

At the start of the design process, Wharfedale’s engineers went back to basics in order to create a loudspeaker system that would once again revolutionise this sector of the hi-fi market and bring high-end performance – and style – within reach of most music lovers, not just the wealthy few.

Wharfedale Diamond 11.3 Speakers

Advanced driver systems
Whereas most affordable speaker systems are based on drive units that are built down to a price, Wharfedale started with the premise that Diamond drivers should be aimed at performance. That is why the Diamond 11 Series sports advanced driver systems incorporating elements normally only found in high-end loudspeakers, such as:

Bass and mid-range driver baskets of the Wharfedale Diamond 11.3 Speakers with their network of ribs for added strength, improving among other things transient impact.

Massive magnet designs improving sensitivity and control of cone movement
Specially shaped single-forged pole piece with copper cap controls the magnetic flux and reducing low distortion through the critical mid-range area.

Progressive suspension featuring lightweight foamed surround for an extended mid-range response super-long-throw voice coil motor system to achieve unparalleled linearity and accuracy.

Woven Kevlar cones
The High-frequency performance of Wharfedale Diamond 11.3 Speakers has been similarly enhanced with a newly evolved tweeter design.
