wharfedale denton 85 loudspeakers

One of Wharfedale's most popular loudspeakers, the Denton appeared in 1967. A smaller loudspeaker than the Linton, and obviously even more affordable, and more suited to smaller rooms. As with the Linton, Wharfedale have retained the affordability of the 85th Anniversary design of this classic.

The sonic characteristics of the original design have also been preserved, despite having been updated with modern drive unit technology.

The two-way Denton loudspeaker uses a 1" soft dome tweeter for high frequencies, a 6.5" woven Kevlar bass driver. Bass depth is aided by dual reflex ports at the back of the cabinet.

Sensitivity is an average 88dB, and impedance is nominally 4ohms, but can dip to 3.8ohms, so a good quality amplifier is required.

Frequency response covers 45Hz-20kHz at +/-3dB, with bass reaching 40Hz at -6dB.

The dimensions of the real wood veneer cabinet measure 340mm high by 240mm wide by 275mm deep (excluding terminals).
