Product Description

Designed to combat the expense and lack of space associated with high-quality home cinema systems, the Wharfedale DX-1SE is discreet, sleek and affordable delivering genuine surround sound.

It features four satellite speakers for the front and rear, plus a similarly compact centre speaker and an active subwoofer. Drawing on the design of the multi-award winning Diamond standmount speakers,  the smaller satellites are just 19cm high.

Diminutive Package

The DX-1SE replaces the DX-1 HCP, a similarly diminutive speaker package that was universally praised for its excellent ‘sound-per-pound’ performance, earning five-star reviews in What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision and Home Cinema Choice magazines and scoring 9/10 on the Trusted Reviews website.

The new package sports a number of improvements, including fine-tuned drivers, increased efficiency and redesigned cabinets with larger internal volumes. The result is improved bass response, more detail and greater sonic scale.

Driver Configuration

Each DX-1SE Satellite sports a 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone – woven polypropylene is used for its ideal combination of lightness, strength and rigidity. The enclosure is an infinite baffle (closed-box) design, which aids the speakers’ ability to be sited in close proximity to a wall without adversely affecting their performance.

The DX-1 Centre incorporates the same silk dome tweeter flanked by two 75mm mid/bass drivers. Its design includes a sophisticated aperiodic loading system consisting of a vent that is filled with resistive porous foam to control airflow. This aids bass response and contributes to a rich and detailed centre channel performance, a critical part of the surround sound experience.

WH-D8 Subwoofer

The matching WH-D8 active subwoofer combines a 200mm long-throw bass cone with a 120W amplifier to deliver bass that’s fast, deep and well-defined from an extremely compact unit. The quality of the subwoofer’s design ensures it integrates superbly with the other speakers in the package, without any hint of bass bloating or overhang. It also sports an ‘auto-power’ facility, automatically switching out of standby when a signal is sensed and back again when it stops.


Available in high-gloss black or high-gloss white, the DX-1SE 5.1 speaker package delivers smart, space-saving contemporary style and exhilarating sound for both movies and music – fast, punchy and detailed, with a sense of scale that belies the diminutive size of the speakers. It’s the perfect way to enjoy authentic and engaging surround sound at a price more akin to a soundbar than a high-quality 5.1 speaker package.
