Wilson Audio’s all-new Alexia is a beautiful form born of a complex function

Andrea Divirgilio / September 18, 2012

Defined to be a beautiful form born of a complex function, the exclusively-new Alexia compact speaker system from Wilson Audio boasts the merging of time-domain accuracy of the Alexandria XLF with a stylish form factor similar to that of Sasha. Truly a modular speaker system, the $48,500 Alexia from Wilson Audio is a totally new design that retains the essence of Sasha’s beautiful and compact form, and offers musicality, coherence, and resolution to rival the XLF. Notably, Dave Wilson’s design goal was to marry the performance and technology of the company’s larger designs to a more compact and room-friendly platform, which he achieved after over a year of research and development. Also, we have earlier seen some of the other speaker designs from Wilson Audio, the brand which has earned itself a name as one of the top luxury speakers‘ manufacturers, including the MAXX Series 3, the $200K Alexandria loudspeakers, and the Sophia Series 3, to name a few.

The design of Alexia not only features the tweeter module’s support system and the revolutionary propagation delay adjustment within the midrange module structure, but also the Aspherical Group Delay technology, which was first implemented in Wilson Audio’s flagship, Alexandria.

To accurately accommodate a nearly limitless variety of listing configurations, Alexia can be adjusted in hundreds of different combinations. And, its measured time-domain accuracy excel all of the earlier designs with the only exception of the legendary Alexandria XLF, which it equals.

With a similar stylish form factor to that of iconic Sasha, Alexia is much more complex and ambitious, inheriting much of its overall sonic personality and technology from the Alexandria XLF, Wilson’s flagship design.

Also, the complexity of Alexia’s exclusive modular system results in for far greater propagation-delay adjustment, which in turn, results in spectacular tonal beauty, along with spatial retrieval, higher transient accuracy, and fine musicality.

Alexia also incorporates two new, purpose-designed drivers, while the 8 and 10-inch woofers serve all the design requirements of Wilson’s two-diameter woofer strategy. When compared to Sasha, Alexia’s woofer cabinet has over 18 % greater volume, which accounts for most of Alexia’s ten-inch height increase over Sasha.

Alexia also accommodates the cellulose carbon/fiber composite midrange driver which was used in the Alexandria XLF, along with the new Convergent Synergy tweeter which was designed to account for Alexia’s single-midrange geometry.

In terms of price point, it is positioned between Sasha W/P and MAXX, costing $48,500.
