Wilson Audio Haters

I've always wondered why there are so many people out there, that more than any other speaker manufacturer, really hate the Wilson line. I own Maxx 2's and also a pair of Watt Puppys. They are IMHO quite wonderful.

Why does Wilson get so much thrashing?


I've had to fix a few and they are a picky speaker too. Watt Puppies. Both times the bass sucked after someone replaced the surrounds. Both times the fix was surrounds from the right guy and then redo the work.. Sounded like they were suppose to.

Wilsons are concept speakers, plain and simple. Few follow the Wilson build ideas just because of the cost. 

They are an eye full. Cylon for sure.

I've never heard Wilson speakers, but it's good to see that McIntosh isn't the only product around here that seems to get a good thrashing! Probably like McIntosh, most have never owned Wilson, so aren't really qualified to say much about them.

the monitor audio platinum series is much much better than the Wilson anything, more three-dimensional airy spacious layering of the sound everything is much better and unfortunately the Wilsons are ugly as hell. they have not changed the look of the speakers in forever, I sure wouldn't want those ugly things in my room.
