      Advantages

      • "Tidy Unit"
      • "Excellent Value For Money"

      Disadvantages

      Good Investment

      The budget Diamond range from Wharfedale is alive and kicking. It's a solid, well-built design, featuring basic controls for phase adjustment and crossover selection. There's no remote control or electronic display, but at this budget price level that's hardly surprising. The main cabinet is a closed design equipped with a 25cm driver.

      Considering the budget price, the SW150 certainly delivers the sonic goods. Immediately apparent is the amount of weight and the sense of authority the subwoofer overwhelms you with. Importantly, not only is there quantity on offer, there's also quality.

      The bass has detail and definition, and it's delivered in a controlled and cohesive manner. The level of discipline the SW150 imposes also helps to highlight its agility and rhythmic capabilities – it's equally at home with both movies and with music.

      For all these reasons, the Wharfedale SW150 sub is a sensational performer at this price.

      What about music?

      Of course, there’s more to bass performance than just booms and bangs. You see, it’s really not too hard to make a budget box that simply shakes the room, but as well as the sheer quantity of bass on offer, there’s also quality.

      The SW150 has detail and definition, and presents its contribution to music in a controlled, cohesive manner. This disciplined performance means it majors on agility and rhythmic capability – it’s as at home with music, be it rock, jazz or classical, as it is with films.

      Remarkable talent for £250

      So whether you want a subwoofer to reinforce the bass on your stereo hi-fi system, or even as part of a surround sound speaker package to go with your home cinema, the SW150 will fit the bill perfectly.

      Wharfedale has a whole range of budget speakers you can partner this sub with, including the £100 Diamond 9.0s and the £180 Diamond 9.1s, so building a budget 5.1 system won’t be hard.
