    I’d love to see the process of design and voicing a speaker like that. I’m sure while tedious at times, it could be pretty awesome.

    Many of these upgrades could be offered to previous Wilson speakers and owners.

    I get the feeling that speaker upgrades are economically and logistically very difficult to do and something that will be rare, regardless of brand.

    This speaker cabinet looks quite a bit different too.

    soon you can add the wilson acoustic diode (spikes) to any model, wilson or not.
    the rest will be implanted in upcoming models for reason mike has mentioned.

    only one more week until the release of the alexxV!! my dream speaker, not my wifes one.
    my dealer has one on the way to replace the chronosonic xvx. that is an incredible speaker, however i think the alexx wont be far off its performance.

    Doubt it. Bottom cabinet and tower are very different to the original Alexx. And, they have developed a new crossover along with some new drivers. Too much work for an upgrade program.

    Now, Wilson has traditionally had a trade program via their dealers for Wilson owners. I imagine they will use this program again.

    This reminds me of something coming from a Star Wars movie. What an ugly set of speakers. For that kind of money, you would think that they could hire an industrial designer.

    Re: Wilson Alexx V

    Darryl has placed a stronger focus in R&D and his speakers have improved significantly. Also, the ability to adjust the upper drivers to suit the specific room setup and seating location is a big plus.

    Look forward to hearing the new Alexx Vs.

    Re: Wilson Alexx V

    I heard the Alexx V last night at Excel in Newport Beach, it was an impressive demo. Mike spun the IMPEX Patricia Barber 1-step of Cafe Blue, im not a big Barber fan but this particular pressing is exceptional. The Aleex V is def in a similar league to the Wamm Jr system set up on the opposite wall (Chronosonic XVX with double Thor subs). Even without subs the Alexx V has tight extended bass driven by BAT tube monos (160 WPC). Color me impressed.

    No, I didn't take time to listen to the new Alexx's. We were just catching up and talking life and audio in general after having not seen each other for some time due to Covid. I will give them a go at some point in the near future.

    Re: Wilson Alexx V

    Is there a technical reason for the GIANT ALEXXV on the back of the speaker?. Or is it just bad taste.

    thank christ my Maxx3 does not have that.
