2-Way Driver Design: The Wharfedale Diamond 210 is a 2-way bookshelf
loudspeaker which incorporates a 1" fabric soft-dome tweeter and 4" woven kevlar
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" Tweeter: The 1" tweeter uses a sheer fabric dome and advanced
ferrite magnet system, surrounded by a carefully crafted wave guide that
encourages outstanding midrange performance too.
- 4" Woofer: Semi-elliptical "break-up" areas on the 4"
woven-kevlar woofer smooth the response through the audible range. The cone
edges are treated with a unique diamond pattern rubber surround.
Non-Resonant Cabinet: The speaker cabinet combines layers of particle
board and MDF, bonded in a unique structure to damp annoying resonances and
block internal sound leakage. The result is that the "noise" and distortion from
cabinet walls are buried more than 35dB below the driver output. Cabinet walls
and internal bracing were developed using Wharfedale's latest "Virtual Speaker"
software, with the help of Delayed Cumulative Spectral Analysis. The top,
bottom, and side walls of the cabinets are finished with a wood veneer (black,
rosewood, or walnut), while the baffle is finished with a gloss black lacquer.
Bass Port: Exiting the rear of each cabinet is a bass port which
increases the speakers' efficiency and improves overall bass performance.
Binding Post Terminals: Each Wharfedale Diamond 210 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
dual). Two plastic plugs on each speaker will need to be removed to use banana
Mounting Options: These bookshelf loudspeakers can simply be mounted
on stands, shelves, or other piece of AV furniture with a flat surface. Each
Wharfedale Diamond 210 is also equipped with two M6 threaded inserts spaced
2.375" apart that can be used with wall-mount brackets that come with dual point
adapter plates (sold separately - see accessory tab).
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 2.3125' to 3.3' from a side facing
wall. There should be a distance of at least 0.6875' to 3.3' 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).
Diamond Series: The Wharfedale Diamond series consists of
three floor-standing loudspeakers (Diamond
Diamond 240 /
Diamond 250), three bookshelf loudspeakers (Diamond
Diamond 220 /
Diamond 225), and two center-channel speakers (Diamond
Diamond 240C) - all sold separately.
