    Calibre is designed to meet and exceed the stringent high performance standards of recording studio professionals and is also at home in two channel and surround sound systems.

    Morrow Audio offers the powered version, the Calibre XD version offers an internal 500 watt amplifier. It is fully powered and does not need an external amplifier if so desired. It can however be operated either way if you desire to use an external amp.

    Legacy Chief Engineer Bill Dudleston on the development of the latest Legacy Audio offering: "I had but one thing in mind with Calibre - to build the highest resolution compact speaker available anywhere.   Merely three inches taller than our Studio HD,  it uses our high power handling 4" AMT ribbon,  a precision 7.5"custom midrange/midbass built in Florence, Italy, and the best 8" bass driver available with a full inch of displacement capability. Offering extreme dynamics and wide bandwidth,  the clarity is the best I've ever heard in a compact design. While efficient, it is designed to sail along with 500 watt peak inputs.  Legacy has always been known for our huge soundstage - but this time it's coming from a small box."

    The Calibre is a very high density package, weighing in at 50lbs each.  This mass is owing to the enormous driver motors and a 1.75" thick front baffle.  Two 8" mass loaded acoustic radiators are mounted on opposing sides to eliminate port noise and cancel resonance.

    Recommended Cables: The Morrow Audio SP4 or higher speaker cables are excellent for the Calibre speakers. When using the internal amplifiers, the MA2 balanced or higher models are recommended.

    Our Buyers Guide can also help you choose the perfect cables for your system.

  • Available Finishes:

    Natural Cherry, Black Oak, Medium Oak, Walnut, Rosewood, Premium Black Pearl, Premium Curly Maple, Premium Natural Sapele Pommele, Exotic Birdseye Maple, Exotic Olive Ash Burl.

  • The binding post accepts our Standard Spade, Banana and bare wire (nude) cable terminations.

  • Speakers require a break in period. Just like a new pair of shoes, the speaker spider and surround needs to loosen up from their like new stiffness. Bass will deepen, midrange and highs will smooth out. You can expect around 150 hours for complete break-in.

    The easiest way to break your speakers in is to simply play music with a wide dynamic range. Turn the speakers up a little louder than you normally would will help loosen up the material.
