Default Wharfedale Kingsdale speakers, 15" 3 way, plus other speakers for sale Lowestoft

Wharfedale Kingsdale speakers, 15" 3 way, plus other speakers for sale Lowestoft

Had these for about 2 years but have done nothing with these since I bought them from a member here in Jan 2019, but have not had the time to do anything with them.

Based upon the original sale thread description, They are like the modern version of the Rosedale. but they are more efficient, and need a good amp to drive them. Reasonable conditions, one of the tweeters wasn't working last time they were checked, but have since sourced a spare working tweeter for them as a direct replacement, when last checked, there was some slight voice coil rub, but adjusting the magnet bolts helped out there.
These are quite unusual.
I put it up here in case someone always wanted some. including the spare tweeter they are 75.

Other loudspeakers for sale

Bowers and Wilkins DM601 S3 excellent condition audiophile 2 way standmount drivers pristine 180

Celestion Ditton 15XR teak? Very good condition few minor marks, a classic improved version of the original Ditton 15 drivers excellent 125

Monitor Audio BX2 Bronze a modern excellent speaker but with some cabinet damage previous owner for some reason screwed them onto some wall brackets, otherwise they work fine as expected 40

Wharfedale Valdus 100 4-8 ohm a small 2 way similar in size to the Wharfedale diamond great small speaker 40

I have far too many pairs of loudspeakers hence the sale!

Can send pictures by e-mail

Pickup from Lowestoft, so the prospective buyer can satisfy themselves with them before purchase.

Sorry I am unable to post

Many thanks

Simon
