    3 Building a New Loudspeaker Th Dave Wilson talks about new So Sophia Series 3 Videos Images News Awards Introduction Specifications Sophia Series 3 Dave Wilson once observed that when the original Sophia was launched in 2001 it was inevitably described in the audio press as Wilson Audio s entry level floor standing loudspeaker While Sophia remains Wilson s most affordable floorstander focusing on price obscures an important fact which was that price was incidental to Sophia s actual design objective What Dave and the Wilson design team set out to create was a loudspeaker that unlike its siblings at the time X 1 GrandSLAMM and WATT Puppy was less demanding of rooms and electronics Sophia was designed to be a product easy to drive easy to own and one that invited its owner to just relax into the enjoyment of music Nevertheless Sophia s true magic is that a speaker designed to sound so good with modest electronics will still reveal the nuance and detail of state of the art gear Impressive sales aside it is Sophia cult status among audiophiles which speaks to the success of the original vision It is not uncommon for Wilson customers who could easily afford the company s more expensive loudspeakers to choose Sophia just because they love the sound Drivers Crossover Since Sophia Series 2 was introduced Wilson Audio has made vast improvements in driver technology The tweeter developed for MAXX Series 3 and subsequently used in Sasha W P features a new topology that reduces the back wave reflections which otherwise propagate through the diaphragm adding noise and distortion to the primary signal By significantly reducing this source of distortion the highs have more dynamics air and resolution free of the grain nearly all other tweeters exhibit This tweeter is now

    of the Wilson approach to speaker design A reflection of the original WATT Puppy a speaker whose size belies its performance Perhaps counter intuitively as our technologies become more sophisticated so has our ability to distill the essence of great sound so that neither size nor simplicity of design become predictors of performance The Measure Of Sabrina Sabrina Wilson Audio s newes Sabrina Videos Images Introduction Features Specifications Introducing the Sabrina The inspiration for Sabrina arose from two distinct and seemingly disparate sources the original WATT Puppy and the Alexandria XLF The WATT Puppy was the result of Dave Wilson s belief that a well designed compact loudspeaker could outperform many of the much larger state of the art systems of its day Sabrina is nearly the same size as its 1980s progenitor The XLF on the other hand represents the current pinnacle of Wilson s three decades long quest to bridge the gulf between live unamplified music and its reproduction The XLF platform offers the world s most precise time alignment capability custom designed drivers and cabinet modules constructed from Wilson s proprietary materials reducing cabinet resonance and coloration to inaudible levels The objective for Sabrina was to take

    a large variety of listening environments But in a single cabinet speaker such as Sabrina the concept is still valid Sabrina s driver array has been time optimized for the typical listening room hence the sloping front baffle of the loudspeaker Crossover Every Sabrina crossover is a solitary work of art each built individually to match the reference crossover Wilson mandates tolerances that are as stringent as plus or minus point two percent two tenths of a percent much more exacting than what even the best individual components can achieve While other high end manufacturers accept this lack of precision as au fait and crank out tin soldier crossovers Wilson believes that the owner of any of its products should hear precisely what Dave and the engineers heard when they signed off on the final prototype When designing the Sabrina crossover proprietary measures were taken to reduce distortion along with its deleterious audible effects Bass performance and dynamic contrast that met or exceeded Wilson s standards was a primary design goal made challenging by Sabrina s a relatively compact enclosure volume Continuous refinements in crossover topologies and specific component choices were made in large part with this in mind The engineers at Wilson Audio employ proprietary modeling software developed largely in house which considers and helps identify time domain variables within the crossover other designers simply ignore Subsequent listening and meticulous crossover component refinements verifies empirically the veracity of any given design choice The metric used to gauge success is measured not solely by technical analysis but through the methodical comparison to live unamplified music Lowering noise and distortion in the Sabrina allowed the design team to hear deeper into the loudspeaker Problems and unwanted sonic artifacts that would otherwise be obscured are clearly audible and in turn more easily
