Affordable, wide coverage audio in your environment
The 80 Series is an affordable range of installation speakers perfect for bars, restaurants, karaoke systems and retail areas. We’ve designed a unique cabinet construction, which enables wide dispersion of audio where placement is often tricky or at a compromise within its surroundings so your music or public announcements can be heard loud and clear.

One of the all time great loudspeaker designs the Wharfedale 2180 has become established in such diverse roles as karaoke bar systems and surround sound installa- tions in cinemas and movie houses; as well as featuring in tens of thousands of bar, restaurant and small club installa- tions. The 2180 is a proven product manufactured for over ten years and offering enviable standards of reliability. As with all our loudspeaker systems the drive units are exclusive Wharfedale designs made in our own factory. The substantial 200mm pulp cone woofer is used with two 25mm soft dome tweeters which feature Ferrofluid cooling and electronic overload protection for extra reliability.

Traditionally the loudspeaker placement in rooms has been dominated by the needs of stereo reproduction and consequently most positions are a compromise enforced by the directionality of conventional loudspeakers. However, Wharfedale’s innovative solution is to use the ‘Baker Effect’, a phenomenon first noted in the 1930’s. By mounting two hf drive units perpendicular to each other, and carefully contouring the crossover network, Wharfedale has been able to reproduce a dramatic stereo effect in almost any listening position.

For an easy installation straight out of the box we have included a u shaped mounting bracket. The speakers can be mounted vertically or horizontally as you wish, still covering wide areas. On installation, the inputs are easily located to one side of the unit and the bracket will swivel and extend for optimum positioning.
