Author Topic: Yet another speaker run from Fox.  (Read 3985 times)

I think this is my third or forth set of speakers since I've been a member here.

Wharfedale Diamond 9.0's

Cherry finish:


They look great in their cherry finish. Front ported (my desk is against the wall). Handle all kinds of music. Great sound and separation; A little boxy sounding, but I'm nitpicking. And the bass, although very detailed, is a little lacking. But come on, I'm nitpicking again because its only a 4" midrange driver. I'm running 100watts off a receiver and I never hit any distortion.

Why use plastic computer speakers?


Essentially they are my computer speakers. They replace the Tekton's, and I also sold my Paradigm.

As I post this I'm listening to Blue Bird - Hope Sandoval and they shine!

Not bad for $100   But I think the larger Diamond 9.1's should be more suiting (craving more punch in the bass notes)

Edit: oh yeah, glad I didn't decide to buy a laptop like I was contemplating.

Quality is good, they are Wharfedales. They have some cabinet noise issues at high volumes, its a shame, but I don't listen to music at those volumes.

Would recommend the larger 9.1's to these. I probably will upgrade in a short while  Grin

is there a way to dismantle them from the rear and put some closed-cell insulation tape along the long lengthed sides?

You could unscrew the speaker terminal connecting cups.

Im no audiophile, but most people are really impressed when they hear them. Use them as my "home theater" setup because I have no space for a real system in the place im renting, honestly.. even if I did have the space I probably wouldn't change them out.

Just purchased some new speakers for my desktop. Today only deal (Black Friday) - $190 + free shipping. These speakers go for around $500 ($600 retail).
