After an interregnum in a rented warehouse facility near the family's home in Novato,
California, Dave and Sheryl decided to move the business in 1991 to Provo, Utah, where
they had met in college. They constructed a 25,000 square foot factory in an industrial
park just south of town.
The third loudspeaker in the Wilson portfolio appeared in 1993. The X-1 Grand SLAMM was
born from the desire to package the no-holds-barred dynamic contrast and harmonic expression
of the WAMM in a loudspeaker that dealers could set up—Dave had personally set up each
WAMM sold. Even though the X-1 ceased active production in 2002 with the creation of the
, Wilson Audio continues to support its over
400 X-1 owners with a Level 5 upgrade introduced as recently as 2005.
An explosive expansion of the company's product line took place beginning in 1996 with the
introduction of seven new products over the next six years, including the components of the
WATCH home theatre system
Two of the most important product launches of this period were MAXX and
Sophia. In their Series 2 iterations (2005 and 2006,
respectively), and now with MAXX Series 3 (2008) few
loudspeakers are as universally praised by the audio press for groundbreaking performance
in their respective price categories. Both MAXX and Sophia serve as the reference for
several of the audio industry's most influential equipment reviewers, as well as
reference tools for several leading electronics and wire companies.
