  • FS: (3) Wharfedale D-1234 Woven Kevlar Cone 6.5" Woofers Like New Evo Series

    Long story, but I blew the four woofers in my Wharfedale Evo 4.4 speakers. Wharfedale agreed to ship me new ones if I covered shipping from the UK, but upon receiving them three of the woofers were not the correct part number: I received three of the D-1234 woofers from the Evo 4.2 instead of the D-1229 I needed. Finally got it all straightened out with the correct woofers, but Wharfedale says they don't need these back. Not looking to make a killing on these, just want to recoup my shipping costs.

    Here's what I know: they are 6.5" woven Kevlar cones with a metallic phase plug. I don't know any of the T/S parameters for them. Not sure if these are in-house designed Wharfedale drivers, or are sourced from someone else. As I said, they are designed for use in the Evo 4.2, which is what I'd call a "largish" ported bookshelf speaker ( 9.75"x 18" x 15" ), if that gives you an idea on rough cabinet volume.

    I mounted these to be sure they worked, and then immediately removed them. They have literally less than two minutes play time on them.

        So flash forward almost two years to the day: I blew another two woofers (I know, I know), and the exact same situation happened: Wharfedale sent me the wrong woofers. I got two D-1234 when what I needed was D-1229. So I once again have (3) total D-1234 6.5" Woven Kevlar cone woofers (one left over from last time, and the two new ones I got today).

        Looking for $50/ea shipped, or since I'd assume most people would be interested in a pair, $90 for a pair shipped in the US. These are $107/ea from Wharfedale, plus shipping.
