Legacy Audio has earned a loyal following of users in the consumer audiophile crowd, but it also has many years of experience designing loudspeakers for the commercial market.
The Skinny: Not too long ago the company announced its latest commercial product: the new Double Helix Array loudspeaker.
The Specs: The Double Helix Array is designed to fill a variety of rooms with sound, and the company says the speaker’s design which features four stacked cells is engineered to reproduce high sound pressure levels (SPLs) while maintaining a controlled radiation pattern via DSP technologies. The speaker utilizes a four-way design that includes internal amplification for mid-bass and its dipolar woofer arrays, and in total the unit incorporates four 6.5-inch midrange drivers, four dipolar mid-woofers and a compression horn tweeter. Legacy says the speaker can be mounted in a variety of ways and it provides a frequency response of 42Hz to 20kHz.
Solutions: Legacy Audio says the Double Helix Array loudspeaker can be used for theater, club and auditorium audio system installations.
