    Description of the Wharfedale Compact Speaker System: 

    Wharfedale Compact Speaker System combines two pairs of compact satellite speakers for the front and rear, DX2 centre speaker and the WH-D8 active subwoofer. Designed to combat the expense and lack of space associated with high-quality home cinema systems, the Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 is discreet, sleek and affordable delivering genuine surround sound.

    Ideal for mounting on a wall or an AV stand or shelf, the small Wharfedale Compact Speaker System satellite has a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone.

    The enclosure is an infinite baffle closed-box design, which means the speaker can be placed in close proximity to a wall without adversely affecting their performance.

    The Wharfedale Compact Speaker Systems' centre speaker incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers in a similarly compact cabinet.

    The design includes an aperiodic bass loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam.

    The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer features a 20cm long-throw bass driver powered by a 70w amplifier for fast, deep and well-defined sound.

    The quality of the subwoofer’s design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang. It also has an ‘auto-power’ facility, automatically switching in or out of standby when a signal is sensed.


    The Wharfedale Compact Speaker System delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music – fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers.

    It’s the perfect way to enjoy authentic and engaging surround sound at a price more akin to a soundbar than a high-quality 5.1 speaker package. It is available in black or white finish.

    Anyone wanting to expand to a 7.1 system or beyond can pick up extra pairs of affordable satellite speakers with the satellite expansion pack.

    Diminutive System:

    Comprising four satellite speakers (for front and rear channels), a centre speaker and active subwoofer, this 5.1 system is a diminutive.

    This time around it features finely tuned drive units, a more powerful active sub and improved cabinet design.

    It also sports an ‘autopower’ facility, switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.

    High quality satellite speakers:

    The perfect bridge between small but poor-sounding satellite speakers and full-size hi-fi ones, the DX2 satellite speakers are the ideal size for quality home cinema.

    The two-way design features silk dome tweeters for detailed, super-smooth treble and woven polypropylene woofers for a spacious and dynamic-sounding mid-range.

    Sealed cabinets mean you’re free to place them close to a wall without compromising the sound quality.


    Dedicated centre speaker:

    Rather than using an identikit fifth speaker for the centre channel, the Wharfedale Compact Speaker System uses a dedicated speaker with the ideal twin woofer layout.

    This not only sits neatly under your TV but also offers a more spacious sound with vocals. Even when dialogue is set against a riotous soundtrack, the DX-2’s centre speaker makes it easy to follow.


    Powerful subwoofer:

    Helping to give this Wharfedale speaker package real clout is a powerful subwoofer. Using a meaty 120 watt amplifier to drive a 20cm bass cone gives the DX-2 not just deep and powerful bass but also agile and dynamic response.

    Whether you're listening to music or watching films, the Wharfedale Compact Speaker System subwoofer gives the package genuine full scale sound.

    Smooth good looks – gloss and leather effect:

    It’s not just sound quality where the Wharfedale Compact Speaker System scores highly, it’s with style, too.

    Smoothly curved and solid cabinets are finished in leather effect vinyl with gloss black fronts.

    The speaker drive units are highlighted with individual grilles – also handy for protecting against prying fingers.

    Thanks to their compact footprint, the speakers can easily be placed where conventional speakers won’t fit – such as on a mantelpiece or shallow shelf.
