Abstract: This is a continuation of our study of topological algebras with orthogonal Schauder bases. In the previous paper, the structure of closed ideals was determined and it was shown that the closed-maximal ideal space is homeomorphic with the discrete space of positive integers. Here it is shown that the space of all maximal ideals equipped with the hull-kernel topology is homeomorphic with the Stone-Čech compactification of natural numbers. Among other results it is also proved that the intersection of dense maximal ideals is isomorphic with the topological dual of the algebra under certain conditions.
