Wilson audio Yvette: a compact Floorstander speaker…well, for Wilson - The Audiophile Man
Slotting in between the ‘entry-level’ Sabrina and Sasha W/P Series 2 in Wilson’s range, the enclosure is built primarily from two Wilson-developed composites: the third generation of X-Material and S-Material The S-Material midrange baffle is angled to its own plane in order to optimise its time-domain relationship between the woofer below and the tweeter above. Wilson’s engineers designed a new venting system for the midrange enclosure, similar to those found on the XLF, Alexx, Alexia and Sasha Series 2. The tweeter baffle is built from XMaterial and, like the mid baffle, is optimised for time-domain performance and dispersion. The X-Material woofer baffle is also positioned in the vertical array. As is true for the Sabrina, Alexx, and the upcoming WAMM, Yvette’s bass baffle angles back slightly toward the midrange. The lowest section of the enclosure, below the woofer, changes direction again, and is perpendicular to the ground. Wilson’s resistor tuning system, located in an isolated chamber on the rear of the enclosure, can be accessed through a cover on the rear of the loudspeaker. It features improved hardware and accessibility over that found in the Sophia 3. The Yvette employs the MK III version of the Convergent Synergy Tweeter, which is also found in the Sasha …
