The spectrum of coupled electron-ripplon oscillations in the Wigner crystal is studied experimentally, depending on amplitude of the exciting signal. In-creasing the exciting voltage is found to cause the noticeable spectrum distortion and the shift of the resonances down to lower frequencies. Excitation of the non-axisymmetrical oscillations is found under of the spectra analysis. Because of radial symmetry of the cell and the exciting electrode a possible reason for such excitations may be the crystal lattice distortion. It is suggested under analysis that the electron-ripplon interaction contributes only in the electron effective mass renormalization.
