Abstract: We describe the experimental efforts to set up the second AURIGA run. Thanks to the upgraded capacitive readout, fully characterized and optimized in a dedicated facility, we predict an improvement in the detector sensitivity and bandwidth by at least one order of magnitude. In the second run, AURIGA will also benefit from newly designed cryogenic mechanical suspensions and the upgraded data acquisition and data analysis.
