The Wilson Audio Subsonic subwoofer bridges the gap between the Thor’s Hammer and the WAMM Master Subsonic. It is the perfect addition to the 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.
The Subsonic employs three dual-spider woofers in an enclosure tuned to reproduce the infrasonic range below 20 Hz, and at the same time, seamlessly and coherently mesh with any Wilson loudspeaker in the lower mid-bass region.
The cabinet is constructed primarily from Wilson Audio’s proprietary X-Material with HDF used in the area of the cross-bracing. X is an extremely dense and hard composite that achieves the seemingly contradictory attributes of high-rigidity and high-damping.
The Wilson Audio Subsonic is finished in the exclusive 7-step WilsonGloss™ paint process that gives all their loudspeakers a 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.

“Dual spider” describes the longthrow driver technology featured in the WAMM Master Subsonic and Thor’s Hammer – now employed in the Wilson Audio Subsonic.
Longthrow woofers allow 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, which is the theoretical ideal. 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.
