Sonja XVi is an extreme, four-tower version of Sonja i. It combines everything that we know about speaker design with next-generation technologies that cannot be found elsewhere. Sonja XVi – an entirely new sonic benchmark, truly extreme in every way.
Remarkable in both form and function, Sonja XVi introduced BilletDome, a one-of-a-kind resonance-free tweeter machined from aircraft-grade aluminum billet, as well as ViseCoil, a ground-breaking bass inductor that reduces residual loss and improves linearity, to the audiophile community. Both precision-crafted in-house enhancements, together with an ability to move near-limitless amounts of air, result in an effortless listening experience associated with the finest live musical performances.

We pride ourselves in protecting our customers’ investments for years to come and do so by ensuring that that our precision-crafted products almost never need to be replaced. Instead, existing products are designed to be compatible with all product offerings as well as upgradable as new technology emerges.
In most cases, upgrades and expansions are completed in a matter of hours, by a YG representative, on-location without the need to crate and ship the speakers.
Sonja XVi is available in several fully modular configurations, which can be expanded from “quite large” to “very large”, without the need to replace existing modules:
• Sonja XVi Studio – an ultra-high-end midsize to large floorstanding speaker system, available in several layouts with 2 or 4 towers/shorter assemblies, configurable to suit a variety of situations.
• Sonja XVi – the flagship; an ultra-high-end very large, 4-tower floorstanding speaker system.
Sonja XVi, in addition to its remarkable two-channel (stereo) performance, is fully compatible with multi-channel audio and home theater systems.
We constantly strive to update and improve existing products as well as create new products and technologies. Therefore, specifications and construction details are subject to change without notice.
