    Engineering Team This group of products recognizes there are situations where the typical floorstanding loudspeaker fails to adequately meet needs that fall outside the typical listening room home theater environments Wilson has a long and storied history of developing products for specific applications The first product to fit that definition was the Wilson Audio Tiny Tot or WATT Long before it became the mid and upper range part of the venerable WATT Puppy combo the best selling over 10k loudspeaker in audio history it was originally designed as a portable location monitor The WATT played a significant role in the series of audiophile quality records Dave engineered in the mid nineteen eighties The WATT s original heritage was thereafter evident by the machined aluminum handle that traversed the rear blades a safe and convenient way for Dave to carry the monitor to and from recording locales When used as a center channel Mezzo seamlessly matches the acoustic signature of Wilson s remarkable Sasha Indeed the Mezzo features a driver complement nearly identical to the Sasha the exception being the midrange driver which is borrowed from the legendary Alexandria X 2 The Mezzo also provides an unprecedented level of musical accuracy
