CLASSIC HD

Classic HD from Legacy Audio has been designed from the ground up to deliver amazing sound. In this design, the Legacy folded ribbon tweeter is suspended between front and rear magnets, and as a result, delivers four times the volume velocity of a flat diaphragm, has high efficiency, wide bandwidth and terrific power handling. The midrange driver is Legacy Audio’s own cast frame design, providing a larger radiating surface for reduced distortion and much higher output capability. The diaphragm is of silver/graphite weave. Tucked under the precisely shaped phase plug is a secondary neodymium magnet which concentrates the magnetic field in the voice coil gap. The result is an ultra-smooth response with incredible dynamics.

ADDITIONAL INFO

In order to keep up with the speed of the midrange and treble, two custom-built 8” bass drivers are present. A deep and rugged cast frame with an extra-large mounting surface, designed by Legacy Audio itself, allows for long excursion and prevents midbass blurring. The cone mass has been optimized in order to provide extended bass without overhang.

Classic HD is great as a front pair in home theatre applications; it is exacting enough for the most critical audiophile. With Classic HD, highs are sweet and clear while vocals are natural, effortless and completely free of the thin, compressed nasality so common in other speakers within and above its price range today. With Classic HD, midbass has punch, and bass is solid and articulate.
