Wharfedale Diamond 11.1 Speakers. As Wharfedale celebrates its 85th birthday, the company’s classic Diamond lineage of high-performance.
These high-value speakers reach new heights with the Diamond 11 Series. Sporting extensive improvements both inside and out, the Wharfedale Diamond 11.1 Speakers represents the most significantly enhanced Diamond series in years.
The most immediately obvious change is a return to the elegantly curved cabinet sides made famous by Diamond 9 and Diamond 10 ranges, which yielded What Hi-Fi? Product of the year awards in 2005 and 2009 for the Diamond 9.1 and 10.1 respectively.
WHARFEDALE Diamond 11.1 Speakers
While drawing on the ground-breaking research undertaken for the award winning Diamond 200 and Reva series of speakers, Diamond 11 has I fact been completely redesigned both inside and out from the cabinets to the whole new drive units, offering state-of-the-art tonal accuracy and musical detail.
The speaker drivers feature heavily ribbed loudspeaker baskets to maintain rigidity, which helps improve transient impact and ‘slam’. Behind the basket sits a redesigned, enlarged magnet structure to reduce distortion.
The cone and suspension have also been revised and enhanced: the lightweight foam surround enhances midrange response and is coupled to a long-throw voice coil motor system ensuring class-leading linearity and accuracy.
The signature Wharfedale Diamond Kevlar woven cone is present and correct with subtle tweaks to complement the new suspension design. The Tweeter, too, has been revised with oversize ceramic magnets, amongst other performance enhancements.
