Question about Wharfedale Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Is there a way to wall mount the Wharfedale Modus Cube and Supercube speakers?

I have a nice set of Wharfedale Modus Supercubes (from the late 90's I believe). They are the ones that have the tweeter mounted separately on top of the cube. We remodeled and I would now be better off if I could somehow wall mount them. There are no keyholes or threaded slots for a universal bracket to work with.

The tweeters are probably blown, i had the same problem.
You can test this by placing the cable on the dismanteled crossover at the back of the speaker. colour blue/yellow.
No high volume please.

for pictures.
If the tweeter is blown it can be dismanteld with the aid of a screwdriver, horizontally.
Place it between the tweeterbowl and the ring which has the mark wharfedale on it. The tweeter comes loose. On second hand sites you can buy little speakers, like modus one or two's with the same tweeters for a good price and put them on your larger speakers.

This how i repaired 2 of my 4 modus eights.

SOURCE: detached cube speaker

I had the same problem.
Step one: pop of the grille with a screwdriver or knife inserted from the bottom so that any marks will be hidden when you get the two halves back together.
Step two: If the speaker is held in by screws, you are lucky. Just unscrew the speaker and remove it. If the speaker isn't held into the case by screws, it is a newer model that is glued to the back cover / box. You can separate the glue with a bread knife or thin screwdriver (I used a paint scraper and thin screwdriver). Be careful to work around all four sides. Also, there is a small (about 1/4" long) plastic bump in the center of each of the four sides that clips into a matching groove in the speaker, so you will have to spring apart at least two adjacent sides at the same time to release the speaker from the cover easily.
Step 3: Once you have the speaker out, remove the acoustic sponge, and sit the bottom half on a solid table. Make sure the rubber gasket between the speakers is seated properly and note the position of the 3 notches in the hole of the bottom speaker cover. Place the top speaker cover in place and insert the white plastic 3 pronged clip though the the hole so that the prongs match the notches. Press down hard with two thumbs and it should snap into place.
Step 4: Replace the sponge and push the top speaker back into the cover. Replace the screws if you had them. Otherwise you can glue it again but the clips are quite solid if not damaged by the removal so you can save some effort the next time it happens by leaving it unglued, and just snapping the speaker into place.
Step 5: push the grille back on.

SOURCE: Tweeters only works when touched!

This is not a solution, but I have the same problem. Obviously, the problem is with the tweeter not the crossover. I can't find a replacement tweeter so i am about to take it to my local stereo repair store and see if they can fix it. If you find a replacement tweeter, let me know.

is it too much treble and you want to attenuate?
if thats the case i have a simple suggestion. wire used for doorbells has no place between an amplifier and a speakers. you could try obeying for a set of modus cube speakers. they're great and cheap. between 10 and 25 GBP a pair. you may even be able to find the centre speaker. if not just get 6 speakers or 3 pairs. use 5 of the 6 and keep a spare. wharfdale modus cube main speakers
or Wharfedale Modus Cube Main Stereo Speakers
theres 2 sets easy to find.

Do you mean "Modus 13"?

Put the jumpers back in as shown. Hook your speaker leads to either top or bottom. The entire array of drivers will be active.

Make your receiver aware they are LARGE for the purposes of bass reproduction so some bass will get out to them. FYI, many AVR's will only allow Large Rear speaker selection if you also have Large Fronts. Refer to the manual(s).

Modus one six speaker not working properly


Hi. If you have an digital multimeter to hand you could always drop the drive unit (the metalwork with the paper cone) out from the enclosure and make sure the resistance of the voice coil is between 4-16 ohms. If there is no reading then the voice coil could be open circuit and the whole drive unit will need to be replaced. If the others rattle check the mounting screws are not slackened off. Especially if you have been driving them hard!

Modus One Six spare parts


You may want to check ebay, they sometimes have drivers for sale. Additionally, I would contact IAG (International Audio Group). They are the distributor for Wharfedale here in the states and may be able to help you. I also have the modus one-sixes, modus-two's, and modus center and was albe to get replacement parts from IAG, never needed a driver though. How did you blow it anyhow, these speakers can take a beating, are you using a quality amp? Underpowering the speakers and trying to drive them loudly = demise for your speakers.
