Legacy Audio AERIS Loudspeaker System (Exotic Finishes)



Free Lifetime Technical Assistance


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 and high efficiency, and a titanium encrusted 8” midrange with
an enormous motor structure imported from Italy. The bottom end is highlighted
by a 10” midbass and dual 12” subwoofers with a linear volume displacement of
nearly 200 cubic inches.

The bass section is powered by 1,000 watts of included
ICEpower® amplification and offers exceptional extension to 18Hz. The included
24-bit DSP room correction features balanced analog inputs and outputs for
optimizing performance. The upper portion of the speaker cabinet is 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 user needs to supply two channels
of amplification and the Wavelaunch processor allows easy gain matching via its
output level controls.   Room response deviations can be reduced
dramatically with the 8 bands of parametric EQ provided on each of the 4 inputs
and 8 outputs of the processor.

Chief Designer, Bill Dudleston, describes the development of
the new AERIS loudspeaker: “…it gave me the opportunity to tool a new AMT
folded ribbon tweeter to integrate with the smoothest, high efficiency 8”
midrange built to date. I have yet to find a driver to challenge it. This silky
8” mid has a range of 7 octaves with nary a wrinkle in the response, yet a
sensitivity of 98 dB. My initiative of providing a 4” AMT that could complement
these capabilities was met with the challenge of accordion-folding 16 square
inches of Kapton into the 4” long, 1” wide chamber. Neodymium again was
employed to provide the flux density required. But the solution was made even
more elegant by mounting the new 4” ribbon on the same faceplate as its
complementary 1” AMT ribbon super-tweeter. The results were more uniform
dispersion and tremendous attack. Treble now had weight instead of tizz. A
natural fullness in the treble is exhibited, reminding us why we love high-end
audio so much.”
