Re: Why so little info on Wharfedale?

Actually, those are good tube units. Think of it this way, tub amps will generally have a high source impedance, along with a low damping factor. Speakers designed for these characteristics will have over damped base, that is, they will have amore rolled off base when hooked to a transistor amp with a higher damping factor. By attenuating the mids and highs, you are, in effect, tuning up the base and compensating for the higher damping factor of the transistor amp. I recommend a super tweeter because those big cone tweeters don't have much high frequency response, so rather than turning up the treble, I am recommending extending the treble.
