Wharfedale Dovedale 3

Bigger shelf kind of bookshelf loudspeakers (where "shelf" really means the floor), and third version of the original and beautiful and beautifully named Dovedale.

Bass : 135,000Mx magnet powering a 30cm rigid paper cone with rubber surround.

Mids : acoustically sealed 48,000Mx magnet powering a 13cm rigid paper cone with rubber surround.

High : 2,5cm driver with wide dispersion lightweight CAB cone (cellulosic Butyrate Acetate) and an added phase plug.

The enclosure sports a solid wood front and quality teak or walnut veneers for the sides and top.

Around the Dovedale 3 were the roundy Melton 2 and the tall Triton 3. Also the Denton 3.

So many "tons" and "dales", these are a bit like the ALTEC model names : the first three you remember distinclty, the next ones blur a little.

Dovedale, however, everybody remembers.
