More Information

Wharfedale Pro Typhon AX12 Active Loudspeaker.

The latest in Wharfedale Pro's active loudspeaker range, Typhon offers great sound, high performance and light weight in a newly designed ergonomic package. 
Wharfedale Pro speakers are miles away from the typical re-badged 'off the shelf' products typical of today's pro audio market. The Typhon AX12 has been designed from 'the ground up' even down to the loudspeaker components which Wharfedale Pro design and manufacture in-house. 
This design and manufacturing focus means that Wharfedale Pro are the only 'affordable' broad based far Eastern pro audio manufacturer we supply.
