Legacy Audio Silhouette
Shipping Time: 72 Hours
The elegantly styled Silhouette, from Legacy Audio, provides no compromise performance in an artful 5.125″ deep on wall / in wall design. The profile appears even thinner due to the anti-diffractive contoured edges. The robust driver complement and special electrical network yield the optimum response at the listening position. The result is a speaker that does not sound like an on-wall with staging beyond the wall.
On-wall speakers are often dynamically challenged, especially in the lower octaves. This isn’t the case with the Legacy Silhouette. It provides top-to-bottom performance with plenty of slam. The three-way design features a newly engineered 10″ low-profile long-excursion woofer and pneumatically coupled radiator to lay the foundation supporting the high acceleration 7″ silver/graphite midrange. Treble remains clear and airy from the 4″ Legacy AMT ribbon, boasting a high-temperature pleated Kapton diaphragm and neodymium motor.
The internal crossover divides the spectrum precisely where the wall boundary creates a strong dip in the response of conventional speakers. This compensation in the electrical network allows for the appropriate response at the listening position. The result is a speaker that does not sound like an on-wall with staging beyond the wall.
It pairs with the Silhouette Center Channel speaker.
French cleat-mounting brackets make for quick installation on the wall surface.
The Legacy Silhouette is also available in the streamline Silhouette Pro version, for behind screen or in-wall applications. Please consult the manual for the various mounting options available to you.
