The WATT is the triangular speaker that goes at the top of the assembly, it looks like this: http://www.psaudio.com/wp-content/up...ilson-watt.jpg

Thanks for the quick reply. Do you happen to know the model? I looked online and found a lot of conflicting information.

The Usher copy of this driver is said to be as good or even better than the original.

The mid driver is custom made for Wilson Audio. -> SoundStage! Network Ultra Audio -- Archived Article
That means, you can't buy them exactly as they were, except Wilson Audio (or Scan-Speak) got still some NOS. I am not sure now which model it's exactly based on so I don't want to start wild guesses.

Keep in mind, the crossover changes a lot more in the sound of the speaker than the drivers itself. And your linked woofers need all different enclosure volumes and tuning.

If i remember well there have been different versions of this speaker, and the image posted is one of the earliest versions, based on a Focal tweeter and Seas midwoofer.
