They say:

The doyen of high-end loudspeaker design unleashes Alexx, an all-new floostander designed to push the proverbial envelope in the areas of coherence, dynamic contrast and musicality.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Replaces the MAXX in Wilson Audio’s range, slotting in between the Alexia and the flagship £200,000-per-pair Alexandria XLF
  • Incorporates the legendary American loudspeaker company’s latest techniques and technologies, with a form factor derived from Wilson’s continual pursuit of the perfect time-coherent modular array
  • Five drive units per speaker: two bass drivers (10.5-inch and 12.5-inch), two midrange drivers (5.75-inch and 7-inch) and the latest version of the Wilson Convergent Synergy Tweeter
  • Redesigned MTM (Midrange-Tweeter-Midrange) geometry, with the two midrange drivers flanking the tweeter vertically in separate modules
  • Midrange and tweeter modules are independently adjustable – this is Wilson’s unique Aspherical Propagation Delay, giving precise driver positioning for optimal dispersion
  • Exceptionally sophisticated crossover network – a Wilson Audio specialty – ensures the drive units work in perfect unison
  • Bass enclosure’s Cross Load Firing port system (derived from the Alexandria XLF) allows front-firing or rear-firing configurations according to the requirements of the customer’s listening room
  • Enclosures made from exceptionally strong, hard, vibration-resistant composites that Wilson calls ‘X-material’, ’S-material’ and new ‘W-material'
  • Hand-build in Utah, USA, and finished in Wilson Audio’s automotive-class paint facility to each customer’s specific colour requirements
  • The net result is an astonishingly crisp, clear and dynamic sounding loudspeaker with tremendous sonic scale that engages the listener like few others. These awesome American transducers deliver a sound so thrillingly realistic, you’ll swear your favourite musicians have dropped by for a private performance!
