Wharfedale recones??? Hi, I have a pair of Wharfedale EVP-x15 speakers that both threw the woofers at the same time. My bad... the specs say 600 watt program/1200 watt peak, in my world that means they should handle 1000 watts... they don't, lol Is it possible to find recone kits for the d-644 woofers or should I just replace them with a peavey driver? Please share any info... rick@soundwavemusic.ca Thanks, Rick

SOURCE: speaker connection from Denon AVR 2105 to Wharfedale suround

The spkrs sound like they are bi-amp spkrs, meaning you have multiple terminals on the backs of each spkr, the jumpers on the spkrs should be connected as such. Now you just connect the spkrs according to the Denon spkr conection diagram. Do not use the surround back unless you have 6 or 7 pair of spkrs

Compatibilty


If what you say is true, you should be fine.
Where you get into trouble is having an amp of higher power than your speakers. That means you will likely blow your speakers.

Can i use front output A and B to bi amp my wharfedale 9.5s


Technically, yes, but the same audio would be traveling across the two pairs of wires that would be arriving via a single pair to the jumpered speakers. NO electrical difference.

Read up on bi-amping and by-wiring (BUY-wiring) before pursuing that path. The underlying presumption of an improvement from either is that there are deficiencies in your system to begin with. It's all snake oil designed to sell cables and amps.

I bought a pair of Mordaunt Short Qviano 1 speakers from Richer Sounds 18 months ago and now find that the tweeter in both units has failed. The amplifier I am using is rated at 70 watts which is within...


Specs refer to UNdistorted sound. Send square waves to any speaker and it will die eventually, perhaps even the amp.

You are more likely to blow up speakers with an under-powered amp pushed to hard than a monster amp running well within its capacity. Distortion percentages rise vertically once the amp's useful range is exceeded. Tweeters are usually the first casualties.

It's tweeter hunting time.

HOw do I recone, or replace the woofer in my NEC SW-300e subwoofer? Where do I get the parts from? Which one is easier, and HOw much? Thank you.


hi,
Its better to replace the woofer with a new one with the same specification than doing recone the old one . Go for an woofer avilable with the same specification (woofer with the same OHMS , Watts, and dimension.)
ok

I've just been given a Wharfedale S-990 Amplifier, Tuner CD etc tower - but without any speakers. Output is 2x50W - but the impedence isn't specified. I'm just looking for advice on what...


Anything in the neighborhood of 8-ohms will usually fly safely with standard audio amplifiers. At only 50w x 2 you want efficient speakers. Watch the volume as this amp may clip if driven too hard. THAT will kill any speaker.

This owner had Valdus 200's and was happy. But just about any quality speaker in the 100w range should work out.

Hey, I have a pair of CPL46 speakers, im looking at getting a behringer PMP6000 powered mixer to run them, just checking if this is a good idea, thanks


You can find the spec sheet for the speakers here. The Behringer is rated 600 watts RMS at 4 ohms, right at the high end of the recommended level for the speakers. So it looks like a good match.

I have a pair of Wharfdale laser 40 speakers that each need the woofer and tweeter cones replaced. How much will this cost, is it worth it?


to recone these speakers would not be cost effective. I suggest you buy replacement speakers. a good source of high quality (even higher than the ones in your unit) is www.martinsoundproducts.com they sell many different kinds and sizes of speakers. If you want to go an easier route you could buy replacement speakers from Best Buy or Radio Shack, but they would not be of the highest quality. one last place to buy speakers is from a high end music store that caters to professional musicians and maybe has a repair dept, (where you could order the speakers you need) good luck, the Waferdale speakers are great, too bad you blew them out.

There is not a subwoofer input jack on the back of this subwoofer. There are a set of input (negative and positive) terminals and a set of output (negative positive) terminals like would hook speaker wires...


On the back of the sub woofer you have two sets of binding post / some have spring clip terminals ( red & black ) labeled Speaker In ( sometimes High Level In ) and Speaker out.
Take 2 pairs of speaker cables and connect one end to the speaker out socket of your amplifier ( left & right ) . The other end of the cable should be connected to the sub woofer's Speaker In socket , Red to red and black to black. Now on the Speaker Out socket of the sub woofer connect your existing pair of speakers using another pair of speaker cables. If your sub woofer has a Hi Pass filter built in , you may not hear bass coming from your existing speakers with this kind of connection. Good if you have small satellite speakers.
