WAMM—It's About Time
This video previews the long awaited WAMM, Master Chronosonic™, Dave Wilson's Magnum Opus. Nearly five years of research, development, and thought have gone into the new WAMM. Now, as a preface to its launch in a few months, we offer up this small homage to Dave, a visionary who has indelibly changed the way we all think about music and its reproduction.

WAMM Master Subsonic

From its inception, the WAMM Master Chronosonic was designed to cover the entire audible spectral bandwidth with an unprecedented time-domain fidelity, ultra-low distortion, and exceptionally well controlled enclosure resonance. It is a laboratory grade instrument on the one hand and an unalloyed conduit to a numinous connection to music on the other.

The Master Chronosonic is a full range loudspeaker, capable of reproducing the bottom octaves of music with extreme speed and authority, but Wilson’s design team also recognizes the advantages presented by fully active bass management and a dedicated subwoofer.

While most manufacturers of subwoofers attempt to bend the immutable laws of physics with undersized enclosures and drivers, Wilson’s approach to the bottom octave is uncom-promising and pure. The WATCH Dog and the state-of-the-art Thor’s Hammer are designed to reproduce the region between 10 and 40hz without the aid of distortion-producing equalization or other Band-Aids to poor or compromised designs.

The WAMM Master Subsonic subwoofer builds on the strengths of the Thor’s Hammer. The Subsonic employs three dual-spider woofers in an enclosure tuned to reproduce the infra-sonic range below 10 Hz, and, at the same time, seamlessly and coherently mesh with the Master Chronosonic in the lower midbass region. Extreme transient speed is not a intuitive characteristic associated with subs; the Subsonic was designed to cover the bottom octaves at the same level of transient fidelity that characterizes the WAMM MC.
