Announcing Wilson Audio Certified Authentic™

Wilson Audio and Wilson Audio Authorized Dealers are proud to announce Wilson Audio Certified Authentic™. Certified Authentic™ is the cornerstone of Wilson’s ongoing effort to ensure that second-hand Wilson owners experience many of the same benefits as if they purchased their speaker new.

The Wilson Audio Certified Authentic™ program is offered exclusively through authorized Wilson dealers in North America. If the Wilson speaker is Certified Authentic, you can be assured it has been subjected to a rigorous process consisting of over 80 steps, which include sonic and measured tests, resistor replacement, and cosmetic refurbishing. Wilson Audio offers a Factory Warranty on all Certified Authentic™ speakers.

Wilson Audio stocks parts for every model it has ever made during its 45-year history, so every Wilson loudspeaker, regardless of vintage, is eligible for the Certified Authentic™ program. Wilson’s legendary build quality ensures that even the oldest models can be brought back to their original performance. Wilson Audio dealers are trained in the art of loudspeaker setup and proper time-domain adjustment. Proper setup, which considers the specifics of your installation, is the only way to ensure that the performance possible from your Wilson Loudspeaker is realized.

Contact your nearest Wilson Audio Authorized Dealer for further information and details, as well as current available stock.

Three Levels of Certified Authentic™

Certified Authentic™ Pre-Owned

A pre-owned Wilson speaker that has been authenticated in the field by a Wilson Audio Authorized Dealer. If the Wilson loudspeaker is less than 10 years old, it is eligible for the remainder of the 5-year warranty or a 3 year warranty, whichever is greater. If the Wilson loudspeaker is more than 10 years old, the eligible warranty is 2 years.

Certified Authentic™ Factory Tested

A loudspeaker authenticated and recertified at the Wilson Factory, a process that includes the same factory measurement tests, factory final polishing, and factory frisking as a new speaker is eligible for the remainder of the original 5-year warranty or a 3 year warranty, whichever is greater. For speakers more than 10 years old, the eligible warranty is 2 years.

Certified Authentic™ Never Titled

Wilson Loudspeakers used as dealer demos, or for other reasons have been opened but never sold are eligible for the full 5-year warranty.

Please see your Wilson Audio Authorized Dealer for more information and details.
