    Wilson s MTM configurations have always been far more sophisticated and complex than competing designs Rather than mounting the three drivers that make up the MTM in a flat baffle Wilson has invariably employed a modular approach This has several benefits one being the ability to optimize the enclosure properties for each driver Most importantly in terms of Wilson s unique technology the separate modules in the MTM can be made to be adjustable both in terms of the relative position of each driver module one to another in the time domain as well as having the ability to optimize each driver s dispersion characteristics within the array For the Alexx Wilson s engineering team has once again reimagined the MTM geometry Drawn from technology developed in conjunction with the upcoming WAMM the Alexx s midrange is divided between two different drivers each covering a portion of the mid band area The seven inch is the celebrated Wilson mid first introduced in the Alexandria XLF The 5 75 inch is the midrange driver most recently found in the Sabrina The frequencies covered by the two drivers are therefore expanded upward the two together covering a broader portion of the vital midrange Further each of the two drivers is optimized for the portion of the mid band best suited to their unique strengths The engineers at Wilson have blended the two drivers masterfully ensuring that the two perform seamlessly and coherently together The unprecedented combination of weight speed articulation and authority can only be fully understood by listening to the Alexx All new Woofer Design Developing Alexx simultaneously with the WAMM has resulted in other shared technologies The all new ten and half inch and twelve and a half inch woofers incorporated into the Alexx were first developed for the WAMM project In turn the technology for these two new woofers evolved from the proprietary eight and ten inch models found in the Alexia Thus Wilson continues its tradition of systematically evolving technology across platforms each new iteration building on the achievements of the previous projects These new ten and twelve inch woofers incorporate all of Wilson s latest current thinking on accurate low frequency music reproduction Working together with Alexx s ultra low resonance woofer enclosure which now features an angled baffle for even better time domain integration the new woofers raise the bar for bottom octave speed authority and musicality Adjustability of the Upper Modules in the Time Domain The Alexx builds upon the Alexandria XLF s aspherical propagation delay correction for its upper three modules For the first time a Wilson array features two stair steps one for each of the two midrange modules This allows for minute and precise adjustment of both the proper time alignment of the drivers as well as the optimal axis relationship of the driver to the listening position The adjustment mechanism of the lower mid module and the tweeter module and the tweeter is similar to what is found in the Alexia

    What would happen if we merged the time domain accuracy and driver technology of the Alexandria XLF with a form factor similar to the Sasha But as Wilson s engineers began development of Alexia they quickly realized that as seemingly simple as this idea was its real world implementation if possible at all would require all of Dave Wilson and his team s resources ingenuity and engineering expertise In this movie we follow the journey of Wilson s engineering team Alexia Concept To Reality Announcing Alexia Alexia Videos Images News Awards Introduction Features Specifications Alexia With the WATT Puppy Wilson Audio launched perhaps the most successful compact high performance loudspeaker in audio history as the thousands of units in use around the world attest At the same time Dave Wilson and his engineering team have constantly pushed the absolute boundaries of music reproduction in products like the Alexandria XLF The musicality of the big Wilson speakers is due in no small part to their unrivaled ability to time align the leading edge of waveforms from each driver for any specified listening position and ear height For WATT Puppy and Sasha owners this added dimension of performance has only been available

    confirmed that not only is the ear brain mechanism more sensitive to timing errors than even frequency response anomalies but also that ordinary people can hear timing errors on the order of less than 20 millionths of a second Every Wilson loudspeaker is time aligned In the case of the non modular Sophia it is correct at one typical listening distance and ear height Sasha expands that to a range of four positions Aspherical Propagation Delay describes the ability of MAXX Series 3 and Alexandria to correctly time align all the drivers for literally hundreds of potential listening positions as well as rotate the drivers on their polar axes to optimize the dispersion characteristics of the midrange and tweeter for the chosen listening spot And now there s Alexia the newest member of that very exclusive club Indeed the decision was made to put the Alexia project on hold while the Wilson Convergent Synergy Tweeter was readied for its unalloyed debut in the Alexandria XLF Once the transformative qualities of this new driver were clear in the no holds barred context of the XLF Dave Wilson knew a slightly modified version of it was destined for Alexia Wilson s laser vibrometer provided fresh insights into cabinet thickness and internal bracing during the development of XLF s patented dual bass port Thus emboldened Dave and his team recommenced work on Alexia in earnest in the early spring of 2012 For months the design and engineering teams strove to find the right form factor for Alexia to meet its design objective not merely a diminutive MAXX nor an enlarged Sasha but an entirely new thing a distillation of the highest Wilson ideals of musical realism in a universally sized loudspeaker Drivers With minor changes this is the same silk dome tweeter developed
