Duette is the answer to a design challenge: how do you make a loudspeaker perform to Wilson's standards in hostile environments (e.g. against walls, on bookshelves, in custom installations—all situations that tend to destroy linearity and soundstage). Duette was the result of a yearlong project utilizing all of Wilson's experience in crossover design, cabinet materials and driver geometry. It features an 8-inch woofer and 1-inch soft dome tweeter. An external crossover unit provides much of the flexibility in placement.
