The WATT (Wilson Audio Tiny Tot) precision loudspeaker system was designed and developed by David A. Wilson to serve as a highly accurate yet portable professional monitor for on-location recording work. Microphone pattern selection and placement as well as master tape evaluations may be quickly and correctly performed using the WATT. The extraordinary transparency, coherence, and dynamic linearity of the WATT also make it ideal for the sonic evaluation of audio hardware and software, including associated electronic audio equipment, such as, amplification systems, D/A converters, passive circuit components, signal cables, solders, and contact treatments. Its capabilities of high resolution, accurate tonal and harmonic integrity, and unsurpassed sound-stage recreation make it an ideal system for the most demanding music lovers. 

The Original Puppy high speed woofer was introduced as a solution to solve the unpredictable results of pairing the WATT with other commercial subwoofers for those who wanted lower frequency extension.

In the initial design phase of the Puppy, Wilson concluded that what was needed was a higly articulate, low distortion, non-resonant, compact high-speed subwoofer with robust power handling, high sensitivity and excellent reliability. In ever series of puppy, two very high quality low-frequency drivers are driven in parallel in a rigidly cross-braced, tuned enclosure to quickly dampen spurious resonances in the structure.
