TYPHON - Pronounced - “TYF—ON”

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.

Two new models are available.  Typhon-AX12 - a 12” 2-way 720w Continuous active loudspeaker and an aptX Bluetooth enabled brother - the Typhon-AX12-BT.  The all new internal amplifiers deliver over 140% more power than Titan-AX12.

Hardware
A completely new polypropylene cabinet design with a full frontal steel grille houses the most advanced active loudspeaker 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 35mm pole socket compatible with the WPB-2 bracket, Typhon fits almost anywhere.

 
DSP
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.
Amplifiers
The two separate Class D power amps (600w continuous for the LF and 120w continuous for the HF) deliver huge output power while keeping the overall weight to minimum.

Transducers

Custom Wharfedale Pro transducers have been selected for Typhon.
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 12” LF transducer has a newly designed ferrite core, uses flat coil windings to aid cooling, and features a moisture rejecting cone material which allows Typhon to be used in damp or humid conditions.

Bi-amplification means that each amplifier is perfectly matched to the driver it is connected to. This leads to more defined sound quality with crisper highs and more impressive lows.

The efficiency of the amplifier stages means that Typhon uses convection cooling and has no need for an internal fan. This results in a more reliable product with quieter operation.

 
Rear panel technologies
The rear panel hosts all the controls and connections needed
XLR inputs, balanced jack inputs and even a balanced XLR Link output.
Sturdy switches control the powerful internal DSP and front HF driver LED.
 
The perfect monitor angle
Often active loudspeakers are used as floor monitors. However, at the design stage, is can lead to a cabinet design compromises. To overcome this 'compromise' Typhon is supplied with a special wedge angle adaptor.
 
This 'wedge' gives you the perfect angle for using onstage as a floor monitor, but has not compromised the fundamental shape and design of the Typhon cabinet.
