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.

Glad to see more Legacy activity. They are super for the $$.

Wonder why they aren't as popular as some of the other brands. 20Hz on signatures, that's insane for the price. And they really mean what they spec.

I just ordered the Aeris. I have 3 year old Focus SE and looking forward to the Aeris. The Aeris won't be ready till March. I think the Whisper's would be too big for my man cave.

That should be a great finish. Look forward to your impressions on the Aeris.

Legacy now has a Whisper XDS on their website. This is a new model number designation for the Whisper speaker. Besides the AMT (Air Motion Tweeter) I can't really determine what is different from the XD model.

legacyaudio.com/products/view/whisper-xd/

Anyone know more details about the Whisper XDS?

First I've heard of the XDS. As a very happy owner of the Whisper XD, I'm very curious. I'll see what I can find out from Legacy.
