Overview

If you want to bring your “high fidelity” sound to the outside, this WM4 will make your wish come true. Being the middle of a three model range, the WM4 delivers better performance over its lesser WM2 but run second fiddle to the larger WM6. The biggest difference ¬†between it and the WM2, which it shares the same physical size, is the installment of a Nautilus tube loaded metal dome tweeter which is absent in the WM2. Frequency range is 72Hz to 20KHz. The WM6 with its larger cabinet houses the same tweeter assembly but is fitted with a 6.5″ woofer instead of the 5″ found in the WM4 and WM2. The WM4 is 9″ tall, 6.5″ wide and 7.5″ deep.

What has been impressive about the WM4 is how crystal clear it sounded. Bass was quick and fast with a very clean delivery. As it was designed to deal with the elements, the cabinet is made from polypropylene which will ensure its durability for a long time coming. If you plan to mount them in the garage, sauna, bathroom etc, they will work fine too. The speakers actually sounded so good, we would not hesitate to use them as main stereo speakers in a budget system.

Cosmetically, there are some minor scuff marks here and there (as expected from a speaker that was installed to withstand the elements) but nothing major. We have the original box and mounting bracket. Manual is available online.
