"What Dave and the Wilson design team set out to create was a loudspeaker that—unlike its siblings at the time, X-1 GrandSLAMM and WATT/ Puppy— was less demanding of rooms and electronics. Sophia was designed to be a product easy to drive, easy to own, and one that invited its owner to just relax into the enjoyment of music."
"The new Sophia Series 3 retains the price of the Series 2 -- $16,700 per pair -- but adds a number of significant enhancements from costlier Wilson Audio speakers. Foremost is a version of the midrange driver first developed for the flagship Alexandria X-2. This driver's cone material is unique -- a composite of fibrous materials including paper and carbon fiber. The Sophia 3's woofer has evolved, possessing higher sensitivity and greater speed than the driver used for the Sophia 2. The Sophia 3's new tweeter comes from the Sasha W/P, the speaker above it in the Wilson Audio product line. Crossover changes were necessary because of the new drivers.
The Sophia 3's cabinet is completely new. It has thicker walls and braces machined from Wilson Audio's proprietary X material, while the company's new S material is used for the midrange baffle. This epoxy-based laminated composite was first used for the Sasha W/P, from which it gets its name. Because of the changes to the cabinet, original Sophias and Sophia 2s cannot be upgraded to Sophia 3s."
