Wharfedale - Crystal CR 4.3 Tower Speakers Pair
Wharfedale Crystal CR 4.3 Tower Speakers Pair
An Entry-Level High-End Tower Loudspeaker Built for Music and Movies: Lively-Sounding Wharfedale Crystal CR 4.3 Features Five-Inch Kevlar Midrange and 6.5-Inch Woven Poly Woofer
Wharfedale takes more than 85 years of loudspeaker-building expertise and invests it the Crystal CR 4.3 tower speaker, a three-way model that functions as an entry-level high-end floorstander while selling for the cost of a small bookshelf speaker. Able to play music or movies with equal panache, CR 4.3 is tailored to bring lively home-theater performance into rooms at an astonishingly low price.
No mere off-the-shelf design, CR 4.3 counts on a one-inch soft-dome tweeter, five-inch woven Kevlar midrange, and heavy-duty 6.5-inch woven poly woofer to deliver punchy, involving sound that reaches into both extremes of the frequency range. You'll enjoy warm, rich bass, clear highs, and truly fantastic mids – the region where most sound exists.
Like its other mates in the Crystal 4 Series, the secret to CR 4.3's abilities resides in proven Wharfedale components taken from the company's more expensive models – including woven Kevlar cones for superior strength and natural reproduction. The soft-dome tweeter creates smooth high frequencies that let you hear detailed, balanced sonics whether you're enjoying a film or favorite song. CR 4.3's woofer also warrants special praise.
Where inferior polypropylene drivers can distort under the stress of highly dynamic music and soundtracks, Wharfedale engineers use compacted woven polypropylene – a technique in which aligned polypropylene fibers get added in a matrix of thermoformed polypropylene. The method yields a much stronger drive unit and lowers distortion. It's another example of why few audio companies match Wharfedale's longevity and knowledge – and resultant trickle-down technology.
CR 4.3 serves as a wonderful dedicated two-channel stereo option and really blossoms when paired with other models in Crystal 4 Series to comprise a supremely high-value home-theater system. It's yet another reminder that there's never been a better time to be a music lover.
