Having owned WP 5.1's,6's MAXX series 1, X-1 series 3 and now X-2's I feel I can comment on your question. First off if you get the Series 3 X-1's at this price it should be considered BUT I must tell you that the Maxx ll is a far better speaker, so much so that Wilson has discontinued production of the X-1 ALTHOUGH they do have a series 5 upgrade for it at a cost of $15-$20K. It depends on how far term you are looking. For that money the X-1 is indeed a great speaker but needs patience in the setup. It will throw one heck of a believabe soundstage. The Maxx ll however has much of the X-2 technology and should not be discounted if it falls within your price range. It is an absolutely amazing speaker for the money and likewise throws an amazing soundstage. Is your room big enough for the X-1?
