The elegantly styled Silhouette Center, from Legacy Audio, provides no compromise performance in an artful 5.125″ deep on-wall/in-wall design. It is the companion center channel to the Silhouette. The profile appears even thinner due to the anti-diffractive contoured edges. French cleat-mounting brackets make for quick installation on the wall surface. 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 two 8″ mass loaded radiators to lay the foundation supporting two high acceleration 7″ silver/graphite midrange drivers. 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.
