2-Way Driver Design: The Wharfedale CR4.2 is a two-way
bookshelf loudspeaker which incorporates a 1" fabric soft-dome tweeter and
woven kevlar weave cone woofer. A finely tuned crossover guarantees a smooth
transition between the tweeter and woofer with an enjoyable audible experience,
both on and off-axis.
- 1" Fabric Soft-Dome Tweeter: The 1" fabric soft-dome tweeter
ensures a wide dispersion, allowing multiple listeners to experience the
same, rich soundfield.
- 5" Woven Kevlar Woofer: The 5" woofer uses a Woven Kevlar weave
and rubber surround, combined with Wharfedale's advanced motor systems to
guarantee the highest quality, clarity, and sonic performance.
Bass Reflex Cabinet: Exiting the rear of the CR4.2's cabinet
is a round port which increases the speaker's efficiency and improves overall
Binding Post Terminals: The CR4.2 bookshelf speaker is
outfitted with a set of binding-post speaker terminals that will accept bare
wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana-plugs (single or
Mounting Options: The CR4.2 bookshelf loudspeaker can simply
be mounted on a stand, shelf, or other piece of AV furniture with a flat
surface. There is no included bracket, keyhole slot, or threaded insert to allow
you to wall-mount the speaker.
Placement: Try to position the loudspeakers equidistant
(6.5' to 13') from one another and the main listening position. The speakers
should ideally be positioned so that the tweeters are roughly at ear level to a
seated listener. The speakers should be "toed" or angled (15°
to 40°) into the main listening position.
The speakers can be positioned as close as 2.25' to 3.3125' from a side facing
wall. There should be a distance of at least 0.625' to 3.3125' between the back
of the speaker cabinets and the wall (the speakers' bass extension will improve
if they are positioned closer to a wall or corner).
Crystal-4 Series: Wharfedale's Crystal-4 series has been engineered to
sound great for movies and music with crystal clear high frequencies and
powerful bass. The Crystal-4 series consists of a floorstanding speaker (CR4.3),
two bookshelf speakers (CR4.1/CR4.2),
and center speaker (CR4.C)
- all sold separately.
