Thor's Hammer
Thor is popularly known as the Norse god of thunder. He is often depicted carrying a short-handled hammer named Mjollnir, a symbol of his awesome power. Thunder is fitting to associate with Wilson Audio's new state-of-the-art subwoofer. Truth be told, our product might give Thor an inferiority complex. Thunder, you see, primarily occupies the frequency spectrum from 20-120 hertz. Thor's Hammer (the subwoofer) is capable of reproducing at full volume the lowest pipe organ note at 16 Hz.

Subwoofers are nowadays de rigueur in home theater systems, but their history at Wilson Audio long predates 5.1 audio. Dave Wilson's first commercial product, the multi-cabinet WAMM®, represented his effort to build speaker capable of reproducing the full range of music, including those lowest organ notes.

The WAMM employed two six-foot tall bass cabinets. Dave understood from the beginning that—when it comes to reproducing the lowest frequencies with dynamic realism and without distortion—there is no substitute for moving large volumes of air. The coffee table-sized WHOW, built to complement the early WATT/Puppys, and the seven-foot tall XS, designed for the X-1 Grand SLAMM, carried this uncompromising approach forward. Now, ultilizing the technologies developed for the WATCH System WATCH Dog Passive Subwoofer, it's possible to achieve the subterranean bass and impact of the gargantuan Wilson Subwoofers of yore in a cabinet a mere five feet tall!
