[Wine] Installing xaudio2 (Serious Sam Second Encounter HD)

Is there a way to install xaudio2 without using the large `winetricks directx9' ?

I am asking because I would like to try serious sam second hd, but in a clean wineprefix it does not start asking for a xaudio2 dll.
I copied that .dll inside the game directory, but the game starts soundless and it shows an error about an non-updated xaudio2.

A part of the lack of the audio the game runs well...

Now, using winetricks directx9 the game starts and the audio works, but the game seems much slower. So I was wondering if it possible to install xaudio2 without installing all directx9.

Here is what I tried.

I installed directx9 in a separated wineprefix and I copied in the game folder the files whose name is (case a part):


and I used regsvr32 to register the xactengine* ones.

The idea was inspired by this bug report:

But it does not work, Serious Sam still complains about the lack of an updated xaudio2.
What can I try? Do anyone know what components are part of xaudio2?
