Introducing Subsonic | Wilson Audio

Wilson Audio’s approach to the bottom octave has always been uncompromising and pure. The WATCH Dog, Thor’s Hammer, and state-of-the-art WAMM Master Subsonic are all designed to reproduce the region between 10 and 40hz without the aid of distortion-producing equalization.

Bridging the gap between the Thor’s Hammer and the WAMM Master Subsonic, Wilson Audio is pleased to introduce the all-new Subsonic subwoofer. The Subsonic is the perfect addition to Wilson's Alexandria, Alexx, or Alexia loudspeakers – either configured as a single mono unit, or as a two-channel stereo pair. In either configuration, it offers performance in the 10-30Hz range that is only exceeded by the Wilson WAMM Master Subsonic itself.

Long-throw woofers allow the Wilson Audio Subsonic to achieve its 10Hz response in a relatively compact enclosure. However, the longer the cone excursion, the greater its tendency to generate vectors of movement beyond the piston-like single plane. These extraneous cone vectors produce distortion. Wilson’s "dual-spider" driver design prevents this type of mechanical distortion by restricting woofer excursions to a single plane of motion. The resulting distortion measurements are of the order one associates more with the finest quality amplifiers rather than with loudspeakers, and specifically subwoofers. This longthrow driver technology, featured in the WAMM Master Subsonic and Thor’s Hammer, is now employed in the Wilson Audio Subsonic.

As the fraternal twin of the WAMM Master Subsonic, the Wilson Audio Subsonic features the same subwoofer drivers and the same internal volume. The differences lie in the finish details. The metal-work in the WAMM Master Subsonic features the prismatic finish that mirrors (no pun intended) the WAMM’s main array gantry. On the Wilson Audio Subsonic, the metal work is from Wilson’s standard line metal finish process — the same level of metal finish that has adorned Wilson products throughout the model range for the past several years.

The Wilson Audio Subsonic utilizes the exclusive 7-step WilsonGloss™ paint process, which gives all Wilson loudspeakers their distinctive automotive quality luster. The Subsonic is offered in five standard colors, with a wide palette of upgrade colors available as well. Additionally, by providing the factory with a paint sample, a nearly limitless palette of custom colors can be achieved.
