Titan loudspeakers pride themselves on custom Wharfedale Pro drivers. The IRIS-X HF compression driver used in Titan-AX12 and Titan-AX15 features a 1.75″ voice coil and is unique at this price point.

All Titan Active models are bi-amplified.  The internal amplifiers have been tuned specifically for the HF and LF drivers that we have chosen. This makes for perfect power and frequency transfer, resulting in the sonic experience that you’d expect from a Wharfedale Pro active loudspeaker.


The coil size and electrical sensitivity of a loudspeaker transducer is critical to its performance.  Titan AX loudspeakers now include our proprietary IRIS X design which delivers Increased coil Radius and Increased electrical Sensitivity.  The radius of the coil ensures smooth heat dissipation during prolonged high volume use, while the increased electrical sensitivity ensures that the transducer converts as much electrical power into sound output as the laws of physics allow.  

A hot transducer wastes energy, risks damage and distorts.  IRIS X reduces this through improved heat dissipation and improved efficiency.

In real-world terms, IRIS X transducers deliver higher SPL with less distortion.  They lead the market with specifications and are designed and built entirely within Wharfedale Pro.

Increased Radius Increased Sensitivity


ssssssh !     The two amplifiers inside all Titan Active models are extremely efficient.

So efficient that they can use convection cooling. This means that there are no fans!

Fans inside loudspeakers can add to operational noise, weight, price and can lead to reliability issues. Titan actives have no fans!         Ssssssh! – Silent and reliable operation.


IP54 certification assures that the product has 

  • Limited protection against dust ingress.
  • Protection against splash water from any direction.
The picture shows some of the extreme testing that goes into the Titan series IP54 certification.  

All of this means that you can have full confidence installing a TITAN in extreme conditions.


Protect a Titan in an optional padded tourbag.  

Wharfedale Pro Titan Tourbags add exceptional protection for Active or Passive Titans, and to keep the same ergonomics and convenience the bag has been conveniently designed with removable front covers, rear panels, side panels and speaker pole sections so you can move and install your speaker without ever having to take the tourbags off. 

The front cover removes to show a unique mesh material, which adds additional protection and leaves the sound unfettered.


All Titan loudspeakers are versatile.  For on stage, or for an installation, there are fixtures and fittings to suit.

WPB-1, WPB-2, WPB-6, WPB-T12 are suitable for TITAN AX12.


A perfect partner for a Titan active is the 15″, 700 watts continuous, T-Sub-AX15B.

Used with a Tourus, a Titan or our flagship Typhon models, T-Sub-AX15B completes the system – bringing new levels of bass to the setup.
