Wharfedale Pro debuts three-way Reason-X Passive Loudspeaker

Reasons to be Cheerful

Reason-X12/X15 features large cooling fins that disperse the heat generated and a unique 1.5-inch ring-shaped polyethylene flat diaphragm to deliver a precious feeling of space and air to high frequencies.

 

New high-frequency speaker

The X12 and X15 models are equipped with a brand new neodymium driver with a flat polyethylene membrane. This new driver, called Z38, was developed by the Wharfedale Pro team. The Z38 features high-frequency clarity for a more open stereo feel. The 100 x 70 waveguide is also rotatable, giving the Reason series extreme versatility whether in installation or on tour.

NEW SUBWOOFER DRIVER

The driver inside the Reason-X subwoofer has some very special features.
∮102.6 diameter voice coil.
(Thats OVER 4.0″ but we say 4.0″ because of number rounding)
Double-layer spider bonding.
Updated mute glue is used. This bonding can eliminate brittle cracking and reduces harmonic distortion.
112 g Membrane.
The Reason-X subwoofer driver has a heavier membrane which can withstand more power without breaking.
31 mm voice coil cavity.
A larger internal cavity for the coil windings allows Reason-X to have lower response by 5 Hz.
6.2 ohm impedance.
The impedance peak is higher in the Reason-X driver at 35 Hz. This results in superior low end strength.

ROTATABLE WAVEGUIDE

A handy feature is the rotatable waveguide which allows Reason-X full range models to be used in the vertical or horizontal plane.

100° x 70° 

OR 

70° x 100° – the Horizontal and Vertical dispersion can easily be changed.
