Awesome Bravus II 10DPosted on 12/30/2014 I have been an Aperion customer since 2009, I have an Intimus 5B and a Verus Forte Tower SD. I had only one subwoofer, Bravus 8D, that was part of the original Intimus speakers. I did not get a subwoofer with the Verus because I moved the Intimus to a room where the 5B\'s were enough. Unfortunately, something went wrong with the sub after 6 years, and a lot of use and abuse. I talked to the guys at the shop, and rather than fixing the old sub -it was not clear where the damage was, I decided to upgrade to the Bravus II 10D along with a new Yamaha Aventage RX-A 3040. After not having a sub for a month, when I received and installed the new sub, and new receiver, I was blown away! WOW! huge difference. The movies are actually scary-intense because the sound is so powerful, and I am more of a music guy than a movie guy anyway! I am so glad that I did not get the 12, it would have been really scary then! I am still in the breaking phase, nevertheless, the 10D performs extremely well. The Aperion speakers are top of the line, and throughout the years have proved themselves worthy of every cent I have spent on them. I have friends that own speakers more expensive, nevertheless, it seems that the music listening sessions always end up being hosted at my house! I wonder why... uhm... thank you Aperion for your lasting quality, service, and honesty.
Part of an A+ Home theater systemPosted on 5/25/2014 I received this in Oct '13. This is part of a 7.1 home theater system. I am using VGB for the fonts a VGC and then L6-ICs and L6-IWs for surrounds. Once I had the system adjusted and broken in this melded perfectly with the rest of the system. For music it gives the fullness and roundness to the sound. For movies and TV it delivers the LFE with just the right amount of punch. The 10" is just enough for my 12'x25' room, I have been debating as to whether or not I should get a 12" Bravus to have some headroom.
The reason I gave this 4 stars for overall rating is for the fact that it does not have a trigger input. My system (surround processor and separate amp) uses 12v triggers and although this really doesn't need them it would have been nice to have that option. (5/24/14)
Very Good Subwoofer for 17 x 20 basement home theaterPosted on 6/1/2012 I have a 5.1 basement/family room home theater using 3 6-LCR speakers up front, 2 L6-IW speakers in the rear, and a Bravus 10D subwoofer - all powered by an Onkyo 707 receiver. Movies are projected by an Epson 8350 onto a 110" Elite screen. The Aperion speakers and subwoofer work together to make an excellent cinema sound system. Installation was very easy and the look of Aperion's in-wall speakers is clean. Sound quality is very good at all volume levels with no discernible distortion. Dialog is crisp. Special effects are nicely enhanced with the Bravus IIa 10D subwoofer. I would highly recommend this set-up. I was curious whether the 10D sub would do the job for my carpeted room. Although the home-theater space is 18 (front to back) by 20 (side-to-side), it has no left wall (as I face the screen), rather it is open to a bar and pool table area. I placed the sub in the front-right corner so that it would have two walls from which to reflect. It sounds great. In fact, I don't even need to crank it up all the way in order to fill the room with earth-shaking vibrations during selected movie scenes.
I've evaluated 8, 10, 12, 15 and dual subs from several vendors in my space, and have determined that the Bravus IIa 10D's are the right fit for the right type of sound. Anything larger is just too much - unless you happen to like that overly exaggerated type of sound. Aperion's 30-day return privilege, 10-year warranty, lifetime support, and on-line audio reviews convinced me to give this company's products a try. I'm glad I did. Aperion provides tremendous value for a quality product.
Home Theater Review of the Bravus IIa 10DPosted on 5/25/2012 "For $799 direct, the Bravus II 10D from Aperion Audio is one of my favorite subwoofers under a grand that is currently available today. When you throw in the fact that the Bravus II 10D, like all Aperion Audio products, comes standard with free shipping and a 30-day, in-home trial backed by a money back guarantee - you quickly see why I have no qualms about recommending the Bravus II 10D to any two channel or home theater enthusiast."

SoundStageXperience.com Reviews Aperion Intimus 5T Tower SpeakersPosted on 5/25/2012 "Aperion is just as interested in providing quality service as it is in making money."
"My friends, none of whom are audiophiles, were floored by how good each album sounded. What was most surprising for me was just how well the 5Ts and the 10D handled higher volumes. Even at a volume that likely rivaled that of my drums, I couldn't discern any deterioration of sound quality. My experience with high-quality audio gear is rather limited and my ears are untrained, so I don't have the lexicon to give a totally adequate description of just how the system sounds, but I guess if I had to use one word it would be solid."
"There's definitely something very special and satisfying about hearing an album you've listened to hundreds or even thousands of times as though it were the first time you'd ever put it on."
