DVP X12 is tough.

The cabinets are protected by proprietary enhanced Rhino Rock paint which means these loudspeakers will look as good as new even after many successful tours, parties and events.

Special attention has been paid to the port and port mouth to ensure a huge bass output with detail and minimised distortion.



Key Features


  • 300W RMS / 600W Programme / 1200W Peak
  • 129dB Max SPL
  • 55Hz – 20kHz frequency response
  • Individually tuned front ported systems for clear, punchy bass
  • Proprietary enhanced Rhino Rock paint for a chip resistant finish
  • Extended-range Titanium dome HF drivers
  • High powered LF driver using a double-roll surround
  • Fine-tuned crossovers, built in house for audio signal purity and optimised tuning
  • HF limiters are installed for thermal protection against extreme power input


DVP X12 loudspeakers use the latest in Wharfedale Pro driver technology: For the LF driver, engineers have incorporated a curvilinear, double-roll surround for smooth mid-high transitions and stability for low through to mid range frequencies. Combined with 2.5” voice coils for improved thermal dissipation, you can expect consistent delivery at the highest of volumes throughout a performance.The 44mm IRIS X Diaphragm HF compression driver used on the X12 is equally robust in design – using a solid aluminum rear plate, the HF driver is strengthened for durability and heat is dissipated efficiently during prolonged time periods. Wharfedale Pro engineers have also selected a 90° x 60° elliptical waveguide optimised for wide coverage in multiple venues while touring.

The cabinet of the DVP X12 has been developed to work in perfect harmony with the advanced drive units within. Special attention has been paid to the acoustic properties of the port and port mouth to ensure a huge bass output with detail and minimised distortion.DVP X12 is coated in the latest generation chip-resistant, Rhino Rock paint.

The crossovers ensure perfect integration between the drive units and acoustic properties of the cabinet. Electronic components are carefully selected, while over-complex networks have been avoided to maintain a pure and strong audio signal.Engineers have fine tuned the crossover points for vocal intelligibility and tuned the high frequencies for long-throw to ensure clear coverage right to the back of your venue.


The coil size and electrical sensitivity of a loudspeaker transducer is critical to its performance.  DVP-X loudspeakers now include our proprietary IRIS X design which delivers Increased coil Radius and Increased electrical Sensitivity.  The radius of the coil ensures smooth heat dissipation during prolonged high volume use, while the increased electrical sensitivity ensures that the transducer converts as much electrical power into sound output as the laws of physics allow.

A hot transducer wastes energy, risks damage and distorts.  IRIS X reduces this through improved heat dissipation and improved efficiency.

In real-world terms, IRIS X transducers deliver higher SPL with less distortion.  They lead the market with specifications and are designed and built entirely within Wharfedale Pro.
