AERIS

Aeris from Legacy Audio is a speaker system whose striking looks are matched only by its performance capabilities. The system is the first to use the Legacy Dual Air Motion Tweeter (an advanced AMT design) with high power handling & high efficiency, and a titanium encrusted 8″ midrange with an enormous motor structure manufactured in Italy. The bottom end is highlighted by a 10″ mid-bass and dual 12″ subwoofers with a linear volume displacement of nearly 200 cubic inches.

ADDITIONAL INFO

The bass section is powered by 1,000 Watts of included ICEpower® amplification and offers exceptional extension down to 18 Hz. The included 24-bit DSP room correction features balanced analogue inputs and outputs for optimizing performance. The upper portion of the speaker is user-powered and open air dipole for fast decay of mid-bass frequencies and airy spacious highs. The elegant design employs a 2.25″ thick baffle with 2″ side walls. LED Crossover Illumination within the upper portion of the cabinet reveals the intricately wired crossover design.

Aeris utilizes radiation control via the hybrid dipolar cabinet. Side-wall radiation is greatly reduced while DSP is employed to divide, align, and contour the response. The system has a sensitivity of 95.4 dB allowing it to be paired with virtually any stereo amplifier and the included Wavelet processor allows easy gain matching via its output level controls. The Wavelet delivers very advanced preamp/processor and room/speaker control with a premium DAC all in one box. It can be controlled wirelessly from an iPad, iPhone or smart phone.
