WLA-210X

Dual 10” Passive Line Array System

The WLA-210X line array system keeps the same design philosophies as the acclaimed WLA-25 and WLA-28 systems from Wharfedale Pro. Portable, powerful and versatile line array solutions which are ideal for both touring and fixed installation applications.
 
Each WLA-210X element uses a pair of custom 10” Wharfedale Pro high- power low-frequency drivers, while the high frequencies are handled by a premium 3.0” titanium diaphragm, neodymium magnet compression driver coupled to a 100° x 10° waveguide.
 
The waveguide exit extends nearly to the top and bottom of the enclosure to create a continuous acoustical source - resulting in greatly reduced destructive interaction within the array.
 
The WLA-210X element also features Passive and Bi-amp modes which allows for complete system control. The bi-amp feature enables the system designer to select the best amplification for each driver component within the array. Such control, when used with external signal processing such as the Wharfedale Pro Versadrive series, gives the engineer the ultimate in system fine tuning. This, in turn, leads to the best audio output.
 
Premium materials are used throughout the system. The enclosure is constructed of Baltic birch plywood and is coated in a premium and durable Rhino Rock paint. To keep the weight to a minimum and prevent rust, suspension fittings are made of aluminium.
 
An elegantly simple 3-point suspension system combined with light weight, compact size and excellent handling ergonomics mean that an array can easily be deployed. With the WLA-210X Common Fly frame, systems can be configured as flying or ground stacked in multiple combinations.

Dual 10" Custom Wharfedale Pro drivers
At the heart of the WLA-210X are 2 x 10" custom Wharfedale Pro LF drivers.

These feature 4.0" voice coils to ensure high efficiency and high power handling.

The HF Compression driver is also custom made by Wharfedale Pro. Using a neodymium magnet and a 3.0" voice coil, this compression driver is coupled to a 100° x 10° waveguide.

These custom designed transducers are what give a WLA-210X system its incredible sound and power handling capacity.
WLA-210X Common Fly Frame
Arrays can be assembled using only WLA-210X line array elements or with WLA-210XSUB Subwoofers at the top of the array.

The WLA-210X Common Fly frame supports up to 10 x WLA-210X elements and 1 x WLA-210XSUB OR 12 x WLA-210X with a safety factor of 12.
Bi-amp and Passive modes
In BI-AMP mode, two power amplifiers can be used. This gives you the advantage of being able to select the best power amplifier specifications for each driver inside the WLA-210X. In a BI-AMP configuration, an external crossover is used to separate the frequencies and this splits the signal to the dedicated LF and HF drivers. This way, each amplifier is only working on the given frequency range and, in turn, is powering the corresponding driver inside the loudspeaker.

In PASSIVE mode, a single amplifier can be used to power all drivers inside the loudspeaker. The full frequency range is put into the WLA-210X and the internal crossover separates the frequencies, delivering the right frequencies to the right driver. This means that the single amplifier is powering both the HF compression driver and the LF transducer. The internal crossover takes care of both the frequency and power separation.
