Wharfedale Evo 4 range of loudspeakers offer powerful high fidelity for an affordable price. One of the most recent ranges from the highly regarded brand, EVO4 represent the new benchmark for Wharfedale. Undoubtedly handsome, and built for purpose, the EVO4 loudspeakers are aided with groundbreaking technologies for an uncompromising musical performance.

Wharfedale Evo 4.2 Speakers (Pair)

Wharfedale EVO 4 Series

Champions of accessible loudspeaker design, Wharfedale Evo 4 series revisits what can be accomplished at such down-to-earth price points with incredible clarity and precision. Launched in 2019, the EVO4 range presents two bookshelf speakers (Evo 4.1 and 4.2), two floorstanders (Evo 4.3 and 4.4) and a centre speaker designed for home cinema use (4.C).

For high quality, beautifully made speakers for home use, Wharfedale have been the go to brand for many years. The EVO4 continues this strong legacy and shares the same R&D process as the Elysian project to achieve a new benchmark in speaker design. Visually, the EVO4 speakers share a striking resemblance with each other, with their eloquently crafted wood-veneer cabinets exhuming great style and presence. Bearing in mind both acoustics and aesthetics, Wharfedale EVO 4 speakers offer wonderful sound and a design to suit a range of tastes (with black, walnut and white finishes).

EVO 4.1

EVO 4.1 and 4.2 Bookshelf Speakers

The base model in the range is the Evo 4.1 standmount speaker, an ultra-compact 2-way bookshelf speaker with an exceptionally affordable price tag. Both bookshelf models in the series feature state-of-the-art Kevlar cone bass drivers and AMT treble drivers. The slightly larger Evo 4.2 benefits from a 3-way design and is joined by a soft-dome midrange driver. Designed for a beautifully musical performance, the Evo4 bookshelf speakers reveal gorgeous details and nuances in the music, whilst the midrange is as impressive as ever and a powerful lower end that is hard to match at this price point.

EVO 4.3 and 4.4 Floorstanders

Following suit with the same aesthetics as the smaller models, the visually appealing floorstanders in the series with their alluring curves and effortless elegance combine big sound and bold looks. The more compact 4.3 floorstanders utilise the same AMT and Kevlar driver technology for a natural and dynamic performance. Utilising the same technologies but delivering a bigger bass performance, the bass-reflex Evo 4.4 floorstanders pack a real punch. The flagship model in the range, they recently won What HiFi 2019 award in the category “Best floorstanding speaker £1000-£1500, and we too are blown away by their high-end sound at their reasonable price point.

EVO4 Series

EVO 4.C Centre Speaker

To create a full AV system, the Evo 4.C centre speaker can be paired with all loudspeaker models in the range. Naturally incorporating the signature technology used throughout the range, this centre speaker is ideal for delivering crystal clear vocals and dynamic on-screen action in home cinema settings. Each frequency is reproduced with convincing realism.

Air Motion Tweeter

Most notably within the Wharfedale EVO 4 series is the newly incorporated Air Motion Transformer, a specially engineered tweeter that pushes the boundaries of conventional tweeter technology by moving higher amounts of air around, encouraging a silky-smooth high frequency performance. With this highly efficient technology only do you enjoy finer musical details, but resolution is greatly improved as well as dynamics, accuracy and distortion levels.


Sophisticated Crossover Section

For a finely tuning the crossover section between the drivers, EVO4 speakers are enhanced with Computer Aided Optimisation Technology. This sophisticated crossover array is the product of scrupulous listening testing to ensure a seamless crossover, improved transparency and great phase consistency.

Kevlar Cones

The Evo4 series truly represents the pinnacle of Wharfedale’s dedication into research and development for the most advancing acoustic technologies. Research into the most premium materials for enhancing acoustics resulted in the use of Kevlar for the bass drivers. Kevlar is  super lightweight aramid fibre known for its rigid, self-damping properties. Utilising Kevlar cones, allows the bass frequencies to be articulated with exception accuracy, with resonance virtually non-existent.
