Wharfedale Typhon AX12 BT 12" aptX Bluetooth speaker with DSP


The Wharfedale Pro Typhon-AX12-BT features aptX Bluetooth input connectivity and stereo linking which makes setup with mobile devices simple and cable free.

Simply pair your Bluetooth audio source (such as a smart phone or laptop) with a Typhon-AX12-BT and thats it! High quality aptX streaming makes connection easy.

Typhon-AX12-BT however also features a STEREO LINK mode. This allows two Typhon-AX12-BT's to communicate with each other to create a stereo pair.

New internal DSP algorithms generate a sound stage which surpasses the dimensions of the cabinet.

MONITOR ; This mode rolls of low frequencies which are not needed when Typhon-AX12 is on the floor. High frequencies are also attenuated to reduce risk of feedback.

BASS ; By pushing the bass frequencies, this mode is ideal when Typhon-AX12 is being used at lower volumes. It delivers a more powerful sound without having to turn the volume up.

PUNCH ; A ‘crisp’ and ‘tight’ DSP mode which gives the impression of power and tightness. Use this when you really need to cut through.

The two separate Class D power amps (600w continuous for the LF and 120w continuous for the HF) deliver huge output power while keeping the overall weight to minimum.

Bi-amplification means that each amplifier is perfectly matched to the driver it is connected to. This leads to more defined sound quality with crisper highs and more impressive lows.The efficiency of the amplifier stages means that Typhon uses convection cooling and has no need for an internal fan. This results in a more reliable product with quieter operation.Custom Wharfedale Pro transducers have been selected for Typhon.The custom compression driver features a large 1.75” voice coil. This is coupled to a 100° x 80° waveguide for smooth HF dispersion.The custom Wharfedale Pro 12” LF transducer has a newly designed ferrite core, uses flat coil windings to aid cooling, and features a moisture rejecting cone material which allows Typhon to be used in damp or humid conditions.

A completely new polypropylene cabinet design with a full frontal steel grille houses the most advanced active loudspeaker ever created by Wharfedale Pro.This injection moulded cabinet is carefully engineered to feature 5 carry handles making transportation easy and well balanced.For on stage or for fixed installation, the carefully designed hardware of Typhon makes setup and positioning easy and effective.Need to wall mount or fly? With 9 x M8 rigging points and a 35mm pole socket compatible with the WPB-2 bracket, Typhon fits almost anywhere.Often active loudspeakers are used as floor monitors. However, at the design stage, is can lead to a cabinet design compromises. To overcome this 'compromise' Typhon is supplied with a special wedge angle adaptor.This 'wedge' gives you the perfect angle for using onstage as a floor monitor, but has not compromised the fundamental shape and design of the Typhon cabinet.
