The new Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker System combines style with substance, providing a home cinema sound experience that belies its size. At a price point more fitting for a single sound bar, this system is the perfect sound solution for those who lack the space for a larger, more expensive setup.


The new Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker System combines four compact satellite speakers (for use as the front and rear units), one DX2 Centre Speaker, and one WH-D8 Active Subwoofer in order to create the perfect home cinema system and deliver all of your movie/TV soundtracks with the pristine quality of sound that they deserve.

When designing this system, Wharfedale made the notion of expense and lack of space their main priority; They wanted to bring the high-quality home cinema experience one would find in more expensive, larger systems, to those who would perhaps not be able to afford or accommodate such speakers. Thus we have the DX-2 5.1 system, a system that remains discreet and affordable, whilst still delivering a genuine home cinema sound experience and remaining stylish all the while.

This diminutive system features finely tuned drive units in each speaker, along with an impressive active subwoofer that is more powerful than its predecessors, a fully redesigned and refined cabinet, and an auto-power facility – a function that will automatically enter the system into standby mode when no signal is detected, then switch it back on once the signal returns.

Satellite and Centre Speaker Driver Configuration

The Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker System has been constructed with multiple mounting methods in mind – allowing you to easily mount on a wall, an AV stand, or simply on a shelf. The satellite speakers each feature a small 19mm silk dome tweeter and 75mm mid/bass driver with a woven polypropylene cone housed within an infinite baffle closed-box enclosure. This allows the speakers to be placed extremely close to the wall without any loss in their quality of performance.

The system’s centre speaker – the Wharfedale DX-2 – uses the same silk dome tweeter as the satellite speakers, with two 75mm mid/bass drivers placed in a compact closed-box cabinet. The centre speaker also features an aperiodic bass loading system, incorporating a vent that has been filled with resistive porous foam, thus resulting in a performance that does away with any unwanted reverberations and allows you to enjoy your home cinema experience unimpeded.

Active WH-D8 Subwoofer

The Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker System features Wharfedale’s excellent WH-D8 Active Subwoofer to give your home cinema experience that extra kick. Featuring a 20cm long-throw bass driver that is powered by a 70W amplifier, this subwoofer will provide a deep and discernible bass response. The subwoofer’s quality design will allow it to integrate seamlessly within the system, complementing the satellites and the centre speaker perfectly and providing a more lifelike bass to your movies/TV shows, all without even the slightest notion of bass bloating or overhang. This subwoofer also comes with the aforementioned Auto-Power function, saving energy when the unit senses that it is not in use.


The Wharfedale DX-2 5.1 Speaker System will deliver exceptional sound for a system of its size. With a contemporary design that remains space-saving and stylish, this system will deliver astonishing, lifelike sound to all of your movies and TV shows, whilst remaining affordable and compact. This system will allow you to enjoy authentic home cinema sound at an astonishing price point. And for anyone who wishes to expand upon the system, the Wharfedale DX-2  5.1 package can easily integrate further additional satellite speakers, turning the already brilliant 5.1 system into an even more impressive 7.1 system.
