Wilson Audio have announced The Alexia Series 2.  Since 2012, when the first it was first introduced, Alexia has been Wilson’s most successful loudspeaker. Wilson told us: “After the introduction of two industry-redefining loudspeakers—the WAMM Master Chronosonic and the Alexx—we were eager to apply some of the same strategies and technologies to the Alexia platform”.  

“When it came to designing the Series 2, every angle and curve was scrutinized, every structural element was considered, each of the metal components, large and small, were carefully examined for possible improvements. Nearly everything in the Alexia has been reworked for the Series 2 with an eye toward more elegantly following the underlying technological function responsible for the Alexia’s intrinsic musical rightness. ral element was considered, each of the metal components, large and small, were carefully examined for possible improvements.

Wilson have released the following information about the Alexia Series 2 (taken from their press release), apparently more will follow soon…

• New WAMM Convergent Synergy tweeter, version Mark V. “After hundreds of hours of careful listening, it was clear that Wilson’s tweeter continues to be the most musically authentic and intrinsically satisfying tweeter yet tested, regardless of diaphragm material”.

• Already the “leader in the industry for extremely unyielding manufacturing tolerances”, Wilson has further tightened its driver matching protocols.

• Work was also done to make the Alexia Series 2 more amplifier friendly by slightly raising the nominal impedance.

• Wilson’s engineers found that strategically placing Wilson’s latest composite, W-material, under the modules’ spike support area greatly reduced unwanted energy at this critical mechanical inter face.

• The woofer baffle is now angled, which more correctly integrates the bass with the upper frequencies in the time domain.

• Using enclosure and wire management hardware first pioneered in the Alexx and the WAMM Master Chronosonic, the midrange enclosure’s internal volume was increased by 26.4%, and the woofer enclosure 10.8%.

• The woofer module’s internal bracing was completely reworked, in part to enable the rear port to be positioned in the centre of the enclosure.

• Wilson has implemented a more advanced mechanism for adjustment of the tweeter module, which now features twice the number of adjustments.

The Alexia will begin shipping in July
