"Our customers asked for a high-end, acoustically-transparent screen solution for the Legacy series, and we responded," explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. "Utilizing new state-of-the-art materials designed for applications where a more realistic soundstage is desired, the Legacy's new addition of the BWAT screen allows for the installation of speakers to be placed directly behind the screen surface. With virtually no loss to the audio soundstage along with sharp image quality, its specially designed perforations allow the sound to pass through the screen material smoothly."

The Legacy Series' acoustic material is framed on a 30 degree angle to avoid moir�, and its AT surface is washable with mild soap and water, while also being flame retardant and mildew resistant.

*Heavy duty contoured 3 1/8-inch aluminum frame
*Frame wrapped in light absorbing black velvet (the corners are matched perfectly)
*Severtson's exclusive Tension Rod system provides a perfectly flat surface
