Overview

The WITT is like the “mini” version of their flagship X-1 speakers. The same masculine theme is carried over and of course the weight too. Each WITT is approx 200lbs and moving them around is a back breaking experience. So definitely plan out where you want to place them to prior. The WITT stands 43″ tall, 16″ wide and 17″ deep. Its a three way design with a 12″ woofer, 7″ mid-woofer and a 1″ inverted dome tweeter. The speakers get down to 28Hz and tops out at 22kHz with a nominal impedance of 8 ohm and a sensitivity of 90dB. With these impressive numbers, we know listening to them is going to be a treat. And it was.

The WITTs are very revealing speakers. They definitely need top notch gears to be paired with and a large room to accommodate the huge soundstage it produces. Depth is not as deep as we thought it would offer and the soundstage is much more in front than most typical floorstanders. So plan to sit at least 10-14 away from them. The specs on the LF bottoming out at 28Hz is fast and punchy but we suspect for the bass lovers, you may want to supplement it with an additional standalone subwoofer. For us, it was more than adequate except for some bass heavy soundtracks. The mids and highs are very detailed and sharp. Loads of details and almost frightening with the level you get to hear. Speakers are matching pair with sequential serial numbers – 464 & 463.

Cosmetically, the speakers look good for its age. Some scuff marks here and there (mostly on the base) with some joist lines appearing just slightly but can be concealed if given a fresh coat of paint. Drivers have been refoamed and new diffraction pads installed. Grille covers look good. The speaker binding posts on one of the speakers were replaced¬† because it got damaged during a move. Wilson Audio speaker PAWS are included with a separate set of spikes. We don’t have the original crates so local pickup preferred or they will be shipped strapped on a pallet.
