Product Research


Dual AMT (Air Motion Transformer) Transducer: The Wharfedale EVO 4.S surround loudspeaker employs two specially engineered 1.1875" x 2.375" AMT (Air Motion Transformer) transducers for its proprietary, silky smooth high frequency reproduction. By design, the AMT allows for a higher volume of air to be moved during performance than with a conventional soft dome tweeter. This higher-pressure action, encouraged by the principles of AMT design, offers an improved point-source HF reproduction with lower distortion properties than conventional tweeters. This is evident in the stunning and sheer clarity of the musical performance of the EVO 4.S surround loudspeaker.

Two Soft-Dome Midranges: The Wharfedale EVO 4.S features a 3-way driver design and incorporates two 2" soft-dome midranges to go along with its AMT high-frequency transducers and Kevlar cone woofer. The 2" soft-dome midrange drivers deliver precise and detailed midrange reproduction with a wide dispersion and open soundstage.

6.5" Kevlar Woofer: Articulate and accurate bass is perfected by the EVO 4.S's bi-directional weaved Kevlar cone 6.5" woofer. Kevlar is a material that is naturally self-damping to reduce and distribute resonances to virtually negligible alevels. In addition, a fixed, profiled phase plug ensures smooth acoustic roll off, further aiding integration with the loudspeaker's AMT high-frequency transducer and soft-dome midrange driver.

Optimized Crossover Network: The output of the tweeters, midrange drivers, and woofer is carefully combined by a thoroughly researched crossover developed using Wharfedale's Computer Aided Optimization technology. Each crossover is carefully evaluated using a wide range of music, with the emphasis being on the lifelike reproduction of voices and instruments in addition to the dynamics of the musical performance.

Purpose-Built Cabinet Design: The Wharfedale EVO 4.S's cabinet is purpose-designed from the ground up to ensure sonic character and great looking aesthetics. The cabinet is an acoustic suspension design (sealed) and is constructed of high quality materials and composites with internal damping and bracing. The curved design of the cabinet accurately disperses sound from the drivers into your listening room and prevents standing waves inside the enclosure which can color and muddy the sound. The cabinet is available in a black, white, and walnut wood-grain finish. It comes with an acoustically transparent cloth grille that magnetically attaches to the front of the speaker cabinet.

Binding Post Terminals: The Wharfedale EVO 4.S surround loudspeaker 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).

Applications: The Wharfedale EVO 4.S can be used as a surround or surround back speaker in a home theater application to fully immerse you in surround sound and movie effects.

  • Placement Options: The EVO 4.S should be positioned slightly higher than ear level when seated in your main listening position. As surround speakers position the EVO 4.S on the side walls at an angle of 90° to 110° in relation to your main listening position. As surround back speakers, position the EVO 4.S on the rear wall behind the main listening position at an angle of 135° to 150°.
  • Mounting Options: The EVO 4.2 surround speaker offers two keyhole slots to mount the speaker directly on your wall (mounting screws not included). The surround speaker also features two 6mm threaded inserts to wall-mount the speaker using an optional articulating bracket (sold separately). In addition, The EVO 4.S can simply be stand mounted (stands sold separately - see Accessories Tab).

EVO4 Series: Following the concept of the best-selling EVO series from Wharfedale that came before it, the EVO4 fuses the EVO concept of great sound and beautiful aesthetics with trickle down technology from the new flagship Wharfedale ELYSIAN series. From the cabinet design to the materials employed in its distinct driver design, the EVO4 sounds and looks amazing. The EVO4 Series consists of two floorstanding loudspeakers (EVO 4.4 / EVO 4.3), two bookshelf loudspeakers (EVO 4.2 / EVO 4.1), one center-channel loudspeaker (EVO 4.C), and one surround loudspeaker (EVO 4.S).

Can they be used are rear speakers?

These can be used as rear speakers.
zachary  Dec 23, 2022 (Staff)
If I was not planning on wall mounting these, would the Evo stand be the way to go to fit these or is that only for the bookshelf speakers? I don't see a specific stand for the surround speakers.

They don't have specific stands for these speakers so you have to take measurements then decide which stands will fit almost perfectly. They look better wall mounted though.
christopher  Mar 19, 2022
I have only wall mounted these and have no experience with the stands
william w  Mar 18, 2022
Can banana plugs be used if these are mounted on the wall?
jonathan  Dec 16, 2021

They do accept banana connectors. Bare wire will be easier to use when wall mounting.

What stand options work with this speaker?
clayton  May 13, 2022

This issue drove me crazy lol. It's so hard to find a good stand for this speaker. If you can't wall mount it (I couldn't), I suggest using a flat panel TV stand if you're ok with the looks of it. I have two pairs of the Evo 4.S, as they are my left and right surround and also the rear surrounds (channels 6 &7). I'll submit photos if I can. I used a TV stand with a VESA "X" mount on the back because the top two openings of the "X" match up perfectly to the wall mount keyhole openings on the back of the speaker. The TV stands I used look pretty good in my opinion. They are black glass for the base, then a black straight piece that rises from the base approximately 50" tall, and then the "X" mount is attached to that. You may also have success using a "pole mount" TV stand. I really hope I can provide pictures for you. If you haven't bought the speakers yet, I can tell you they are unbelievable. Sublime, in fact.

Can these surrounds be used for an Atmos setup?

These can work as the surround speakers in a setup that only has front Atmos speakers.
