Hello
The voice coil of your speaker is scratching with its magenet body inside. It can't be repaired. Whatever we do will go in vein. there is no possibility other than replacing this speaker. Some people will recone it, but qulaity cannot be assured. it will sound; but with respect to the other speaker, it won't match. Coil position, resistance, number of turns per unit length ete are determining the magnetic strenth of the coil, and therby sound. Wharfedale eill have its secret, and they wont give it out, as they have gained it with tremndous reserch.
So in my opinion, it will be best for you to replace the damaged speaker with and other one of same type and number. All details will be printed on its body. Buy the original one. Do not compromise. Woofers are the heart of any sound system. Keep this in mind. OK.

My child has damaged the cone on the woofers of my Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 speakers. Can I replace these?


Of course you can replace them, if you can find the woofers at your area. Unscrew the 6 screws that are securing the woofer (I suggest to unscrew the top-middle screw at the end of all in order to keep the woofer in it's place). Pull the woofer out and disconnect the 2 wires, paying attention which collor is at which side of the woofer. Replace with the new one. Connect the 2 wires. Screw it up (first of all the top-middle screw) Never tighten to the end each screw, tight one after the other, little by little.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Sub-woofer driver rattle/buzz.


Bad news! It sounds like the coil is rubbing inside the magnet of the speaker! There's no cure, when the cone is warped it it knackers it up. Had the same problem some years ago with a Wharfedale speaker. Someone told me you can hit it on the part where the cone joins the magnet -with a hammer!
Anyway it didn't make a bit of difference! And the speaker was chucked.

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

I have a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 7.2 Anniversary speakers and one of them has a blown woofer - how do I get into the speaker - there are no apparent screws to access into the cabinet? Help Also,...


On the back of the speaker are six deep holes that screws the back panel to front baffle.There are six sponge plugs normally.You have to dig these out with
a long standard screwdriver or however you can get them out to expose the 6 Phillips head screws below them.Remove the 6 Phillips head screws and the whole speaker comes apart,leaving just the box.Good luck.

Wharfedale 8.3


Is it old ? Is it making a rattling noise inside ? Completely lost its sound as in completely stopped sounding like a woofer and has higher frequencys coming out of it or as in no sound at all coming out of it ? I would say it's probably the crossover, perhaps a burnt resistor.

Problem with Diamond 8.4


No - sounds like the speaker/ cross over is faulty - I assume there are only one set of connections on the back - on some speakers you have 4 connections for dual wiring - and you usually bridge those out Play a piece of music with some drumming in it and you should see the midrange move a lot Just to make sure there is not a problme with the Amp - swap the speakers around - so you have a left speaker and a right speaker connected physically move the left speaker over to the rightside and connect to right side cables - and the right speaker to the left side and connect to left cables Now if the problem goes over to the other side - its the speaker thats fault if it stays on the sam side - its the amp
