How did this room sound Ivan? Looks like Whisper speakers in the second photo.

Pete... It sounded decent considering it was in a very large untreated room.

Some years ago I drove up to Casselberry, FL to audition the Legacy line. I was a very enjoyable experience. Most of the line was at the dealership, while the owners had a pair of Whispers in their home, with the companion subwoofer. They were gracious enough to take me on the short drive to their home to audition them. They did sound fabulous and craftsmanship from top to bottom was most impressive. I was also impressed with the Legacy Focus.

I do. I flew to the Legacy Audio plant in Springfield, IL in June to demo the Aeris and the Whisper XD, both of which now come off the line with the new Air Motion Tweeter. I surprised myself -- I was anticipating that I'd choose the Aeris (which had a wonderful sound). I ultimately chose the Whisper XD for two reasons: I think it's got a better bottom end (tighter, deeper, more slam) and it's got a wider sweet spot.

I've been quite happy with my purchase. They're magical.

I also have the Whisper XD speaker with the older tweeter configuration. I have heard the new AMT at shows, and that is not the ideal place to determine if there are major positive differences, I'm curious to know the differences between the older tweeter configuration, and the AMT.

I also agree when set up properly the Whispers have a very wide sweet spot, and are more room independent than other speakers I've used.

I'm currently debating if I should consider a pair with the new AMT tweeter, or if I should consider adding a pair of subwoofers.

Glad to hear you also are enjoying you Whisper XD's. What finish do your Whisper's have?

My Whispers are finished in Rosewood, and match the finish on a Legacy surround system (surround towers, sub, center) that was initially configured with original Legacy Focus towers. Not only does the system provide fantastic sound, it's also got a high WAF.

You're right about the room independence, and thanks for catching that and adding it. I was lucky enough to have Bill Duddleston arrive with my Whispers. After they'd been moved into place and cabled properly, it took him all of 45 minutes to tune the speakers to my room using the Xilica processor -- and that's a huge help in my room, which has odd angles and openings and other acoustic challenges.

You should call Doug Brown at Legacy and ask if they can retrofit your current speakers with the AMT. If I understand correctly, that's a service they're offering, and it's dependent on when your current speakers were produced.
