The Legacy Audio Calibre is a high-resolution compact speaker that raises the performance bar for what a compact speaker can do.
Legacy Audio Calibre Features and Specifications:
Calibre is designed to meet and exceed the stringent high-performance standards of recording studio professionals and is also at home in two-channel and surround sound systems.
Legacy Chief Engineer Bill Dudleston on the development of the latest Legacy Audio offering: “I had but one thing in mind with Calibre – to build the highest resolution compact speaker available anywhere. Merely three inches taller than our Studio HD, it uses our high power handling 4″ AMT ribbon, a precision 7.5″custom midrange/midbass built in Spain, and the best 8″ bass driver available with a full inch of displacement capability. Offering extreme dynamics and wide bandwidth, the clarity is the best I’ve ever heard in a compact design. While efficient, it is designed to sail along with 500-watt peak inputs. Legacy has always been known for our huge soundstage – but this time it’s coming from a small box.”
The Calibre is a very high-density package, weighing in at 50lbs each. This mass is owing to the enormous driver motors and a 1.75″ thick front baffle. Two 8″ mass loaded acoustic radiators are mounted on opposing sides to eliminate port noise and cancel resonance.
