I have a pristine pair of Legacy Audio Focus SE's for sale. 10/10 condition. You have to hear these to believe them!

As Legacy states:

“I started by re-sculpting the cabinet, making it a bit narrower, yet deeper. I stiffened and angled the sidewalls, front baffle, and cabinet top to avoid parallel surfaces and potential standing waves. Facets were machined into the cabinet corners to progressively narrow the baffle with rising frequency. Even the grille of the FOCUS SE has been sculpted to prevent diffraction.

While the driver tolerances on the FOCUS are a stringent +/- 1dB of the target function,, the FOCUS SE drivers are then performance matched to +/-0.25 dB. The measurement data is then recorded in our database and archived by serial number.

I chose to use Solen metallized polypropylene capacitors imported from France as bypasses in the high frequency network and braided silver cable by Ray Kimber to the upper ribbon. As final assurance, I hand-tune the final crossover network personally, before signing the Silver Edition owner’s certificate.

The FOCUS SE makes a statement of quality and performance that I feel is unmatched by any other company at twice the price.”

Since some smaller rooms can load up in the 60 to 80 Hz region when driven by full range speakers, a sculpting network can be activated to tame such conditions. It is completely out of circuit until engaged, yet eliminates overhang or ‘droning’ when needed.

Black chromed cone feet, turned from solid brass, properly anchor the speaker to the floor boundary. A knurled adjustable leveling washer and a stabilizing centering disc are incorporated. An elastomeric isolation pad is installed between the cabinet and cone to prevent re-radiation of mechanically induced vibration reaching the listener.

The 14 step Black Pearl finish is cured for three weeks prior to hours of hand polishing and buffing. The completed system is protected by a custom made velvet bag and encased by three inch thick polyethylene foam for transport.
