MAXX Series 3 takes you to a new world of musical clarity

wilson audio maxx series 3Wilson Audio is all set to impress the audiophiles with its new Maxx Series 3 speaker system, which is an update to the very famous Maxx Series 2. The MAXX Series 3, also called the MAXX Cubed, is as simple to set up and place in a room as its predecessor. What I like the most about the MAXX series speaker systems is their unique design that looks more like a robot’s leg instead of a music system. The main objective behind the creation of Series 3 was to improve MAXX’s time-domain performance. For the same, the Wilson design team divided the single upper module into two discrete units and used Aspherical Propagation Delay. They also included a new midrange driver developed for Alexandria Series 2. New crossovers were designed to get the best out of the new driver. A unique blend of proprietary cellulose fibers was chosen to address the design challenge of a highly rigid but low moving mass cone.

One of the striking elements of the MAXX Series 3 is the mechanical and electrical isolation of the crossovers. The midrange crossover has been relocated to the bass cabinet, which frees up space for it and the tweeter crossover. The Wilson Audio MAXX Series 3 loudspeakers will sell for about US $68,000.
