My question is, does it have 2 tweeters? or 3 midranges (doubt that)?

I don't know of any other Wilsons with 2 forward facing tweeters. I think I see a rear-facing one in that pic.

Should be interesting.

The original WAMM had 2 forward facing tweeters( 3 if you count the electrostatic module):

My guess is not a new XLF but an XLF replacement.

The tweeters in the modules and the electrostats covered different ranges.

Best hints for what XVX is come from much more recent Wilson designs than this one.

Interesting, I never saw the original WAMM in real life and I forgot about it's array of tweeters and mids.

One thing for sure, the new products look WAYYYY better
