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.

The 3180 is the largest model in this range and develops the 2180 concept through the addition of a second 200mm diameter bass drive unit. By positioning this unit on the side of the cabinet a remarkably compact loud- speaker system is achieved; one that offers high power han- dling and high SPL outputs. The compact size and discrete appearance of the 3180 makes it ideal for the small club where the use of several of these loudspeakers can produce the sound levels the cus- tomers desire yet with the minimum loss of valuable space.

The 3180 offers a perfect combination of performance; value; appearance; reliability and, above all, the legendary Wharfedale sound quality.

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.
