WILSON AUDIO ALEXX VS ALEXX V™

The difference between Wilson Audio Alexx and newly introduced Alexx V speakers: "Wilson Audio engineering team went through each of the critical sub-systems found in the Alexx® and upgraded, or re-engineered, many of its components. Here are some highlights... All X-Material enclosures with V-Material nested in strategic locations (top of the woofer, in gantry cross-brace, and in the new Wilson Audio Acoustic Diode™ Spike). Vibration control and upper module isolation akin to what is found in the Chronosonic XVX provides amazing settling between the notes. There have been several crossover changes. With fewer components now in the signal path we fine-tuned and modified the system for better Impedance and Sensitivity measurements— From a minimum impedance measurement of 1.5 ohms (Alexx) to 2.0 ohms (Alexx V) and +1dB more sensitive than Alexx Series 1."

QuadraMag 7" Midrange

The new 7” Alnico QuadraMag® developed for XVX finds its way into the Alexx V. This driver is tonally rich and musically exquisite.

Convergent Synergy Carbon Tweeter


All new Convergent Synergy® Carbon (CSC) Tweeter rear-wave chamber is 3D printed in-house with carbon fiber. The development of this unique design is greater high-frequency extension, more linear frequency response, and better harmonic detail.


Illumination Crossbrace & Cable Managment

First pioneered with WAMM Master Chronosonic, Alexx V features our latest cable management system. Aiding not only the overall visual aesthetic of the speaker’s rearward look, this cable management system offers an altogether superior solution to achieving the perfect length of speaker cable for each of the upper modules as they are adjusted for correct time-alignment. Included in this refined design is the illumination cross-brace with a custom made Sono 1 Coolfall® light for ease of installation in dark environments.

Open Gantry

Inspired by natural elements found in Utah one quickly sees more svelte lines in the Alexx V™ like the XVX. The exposed “skeletonized” architecture allows an airy and openness currently only found with the WAMM Mater Chronosonic® and the Chronosonic XVX®. Given the open architecture gantry design, the gantry grilles are seamlessly attached via embedded magnets, allowing for quick and simple installation and removal. Alexx V's overall size is only 1” deeper and 1” taller than Alexx Series 1. The open architecture gantry first launched with WAMM Master Chronosonic, followed by Chronosonic XVX, has now found a home with Alexx V. Not only does this benefit the overall appearance of the loudspeaker, but critically, it also enhances the overall rigidity of the entire upper module section and minimizes pressure trapped behind the enclosures, resulting in greater fidelity. Easier access to the upper modules makes for quicker adjustments. Similar to our innovative lighting solution (Sono 1™ from Coolfall®) featured in Chronosonic XVX, Alexx V has an illuminated cross brace at the rear of the gantry, which aids in speaker module setup and time-alignment fine-tuning.


AudioCapX®-WA Capacitors

New AudioCapX®-WA capacitors are now used throughout Alexx V crossover and are uniquely wound at Wilson Audio® to our extremely tight tolerances. These custom capacitors now add a new dimension of low-level resolution.

Wilson Audio Acoustic Diodes

Introducing the Wilson Audio Acoustic Diode. An all-new spike system launched with Alexx V, which has been completely upgraded from our standard spike system, and features a novel combination of austenitic stainless steel and V-Material. This coupling system was created by Wilson Audio’s Special Applications Engineering® (WASAE) division and has superlative vibration management that reveals far greater dynamic nuances across the entire frequency spectrum.


Increased Woofer Enclosure Volume

Alexx V is an extraordinarily adaptable design, including the XLF reversible woofer port and independently adjustable upper modules. Greater ease of installation into a wider variety of listening spaces allows music lovers to truly experience the ability of this system. Every driver is now better aligned and more on-axis with the listener which provides outstanding micro-detail and the time alignment accuracy is tighter at all listening positions.

Upgraded Binding Posts

The custom built Wilson Audio binding posts, first appearing in Sasha DAW®, have now also been integrated into Alexx V. Both banana plug termination and traditional spade connections can be used with this binding post. This premier binding post offers a clean signal path with an upgraded and larger contact surface area.
 
Gold lugs, which are a superior electrical conductor, are featured throughout the entire product. Some places they can be found are within the crossover, connector plate contact points, and resistor connections.
