In ancient mythology, Typhon was a giant who brought fear to his enemies. From a similar era to the Titans, it is said that the God Typhon had the power to create and control massive wind tornadoes in his battles. Mythology also often refers to him as being invincible. Power, control and “invincibility” are all features which the new Typhon active loudspeakers have been designed around.
AX8 BT Custom Wharfedale Pro transducers
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 LF transducers have a newly designed ferrite core, use flat coil windings to aid cooling, and feature a moisture rejecting cone material which allows Typhon to be used in damp or humid conditions.
Inside the AX8 BT
Just like all other Wharfedale Pro plastic active loudspeakers, Typhon uses the largest HF voice coils in their class. All models use a 1.75″ coil HF compression driver. These custom made Wharfedale Pro compression driver delivers crisp and precise high frequencies, even at extreme volumes.
The internal amplifiers of Typhon have been tuned specifically for the HF and LF drivers that we have chosen. This makes for perfect power and frequency transfer, resulting in the sonic experience that you’d expect from a Wharfedale Pro active loudspeaker.
AX8 BT Hardware
A completely new polypropylene cabinet design with a full frontal steel grille houses the most advanced active loudspeakers 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 35 mm pole socket compatible with the WPB-2 bracket, Typhon fits almost anywhere.
AX8 BT DSP Features
New internal DSP algorithms generate a sound stage which surpasses the dimensions of the cabinet.
FLAT ; The Flat mode is ‘the truth’. This mode is ideal for when connecting guitar effects processors directly to a Typhon-AX12. Full Range, Flat Response. Simply YOUR sound.
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.
AX8 BT Bluetooth and TWS Linking
The Typhon AX8 BT features Bluetooth input connectivity and TWS linking which makes setup with mobile devices simple and cable free. Simply pair your Bluetooth audio source (such as a smartphone or laptop) with a Typhon “BT” model and thats it! High quality aptX streaming makes connection easy.
The AX8 BT also features a TWS LINK mode. This allows two Typhon “BT’s” to communicate with each other to create a wireless stereo pair.
