Wilson Audio LōKē Active Subwoofer Launched
Wilson Audio's new subwoofer, dubbed LōKē, is a compact and active variant and becomes the American brand's smallest subwoofer at just 35.2x52.7x55.2cm (WxHxD). It packs a custom 10-inch driver powered by a built-in 500W amp, unlike WATCH Dog, Thor's Hammer and Wilson Audio Subsonic, which are the company's passive subs.
You also get the most utilised functions from Wilson Audio's acclaimed ActivXO Dual Subwoofer Crossover, including critical parameters such as crossover frequency, crossover slope, phase, and level.
Constructed from Wilson Audio's “extremely damped” X-Material, Lōkē has been designed to support TuneTot, the Utah-based speaker maker's other compact offering.
Additionally, Lōkē promises to augment the low-end foundation of the StereoNET Applause Award-winning SabrinaX, as well as Yvette, and Sasha D.A.W. which are all comparatively compact when compared with the likes of Alexxa V and Chronosonic XVX.
Naturally, this striking subwoofer is entirely handcrafted in Provo, Utah, with the rest of Wilson Audio's offerings and is available in no less than 21 colour options! There are also four grille options - take a look here.
Wilson Audio's Lōkē will be available in Australia in the coming weeks and will sell for $13,995 RRP for Standard colours. Upgrade colours and Premium Pearl colours will also be available to order.

Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.
Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.
The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.
We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
