Legacy drivers help in the upgrading of the sound system and the configuration of the sound settings of your computer. The driver gives the studio monitors their precise imaging but can't achieve a high resolution soundstage. With proper installation and placement of the speakers the studio will explode with a wide and open soundstage. The rear porting acts as a passive bi-polar driver creating much additional air. The installation of the driver and configuration of the system helps the room sound like it is full of speakers. The drivers are better than the previous version and make the legacy speaker the high end speakers for a studio set up. The drivers help in the emulation of the titanium dome tweeter. The cross over split is situated between two screened PC boards, which separate the mid and treble sections from bass sections.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

The speaker cabinet is solid and beautifully finished. Legacy converts the focus from the traditional B4 alignment to a more sophisticated sixth order. In it's down right position the middle switch softens the midrange presence while the right most switch provide some subtractive contour in the lower treble region. Most speakers work well in the position. The legacy speakers have a perfect representation right from the box, they represent the power of a live orchestra.
