Alexia Series 2
A Classic RebornHow do you update a classic? By almost any measure, the Alexia has been one of Wilson’s most successful products. The physicians’ maxim of Primum non nocere (first do no harm) certainly applies here. On the other hand, Wilson’s technology has continued to evolve and advance in the areas of drivers, crossover analysis and design, time-alignment accuracy, and composite materials research.
Time & SoundAlexia’s modular design, with each of the three drivers mounted in their own individual enclosure, facilitates extremely fine adjustment within the time domain. The midrange and tweeter are adjusted independently of the woofer enclosure such that the three drivers can be precisely aligned for each unique installation.
DesignLike all recent Wilson designs, the Alexia Series 2 is the beneficiary of Wilson’s state-of-the-art composite research, the heart of which is the laser vibrometer. This measurement tool allows Wilson’s engineers to see minute vibrations—on the order of a billionth of a meter.
Enclosure MaterialsWilson’s latest breakthrough, W-Material, called such because of its relationship to the development of the new WAMM, possesses remarkable energy dissipation (damping) characteristics heretofore unobserved in any previous composite when combined with W’s extreme rigidity. Wilson’s engineers found that strategically placing W-Material under the modules’ spike support areas greatly reduced unwanted energy at this critical mechanical interface, without in any way compromising the cabinet’s structural rigidity.
