More information for OPEN BOX Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker Pair - Gloss Black
In most families, the middle sibling has "issues," so it’s nice to see one that Freud wouldn’t fault. Based on the popularity of previous Intimus bookshelf speakers, we think our newest entry will be equally well-adjusted.
What makes the Intimus 5B Bookshelf Speaker so effortlessly cool? Maybe it’s the artful way it combines the "I’ll-show-you-who’s-boss-iness" of a larger speaker with the "Put-me-in-my-place" vibe of a smaller one. Flawless sound reproduction across its range comes from our 1" audiophile-grade silk-dome tweeter, 5.25" woven-fiberglass mid-woofer and custom HD-X3™ crossover. We wrap up the sound in a handsome anti-resonant cabinet, then wrap up the cabinet in simulated Cherry Wood or Black Ash.
At this feel-good price, you can afford to upgrade your music or movie therapy sessions. And you can put the Intimus 5Bs on stands, your ceiling, wall or (call us crazy) bookshelf.

1" Audiophile-Grade Silk-Dome Tweeter
We engineered the 1-inch, audiophile-grade, silk-dome tweeter for optimal sonic performance—even at the highest volume levels—so you savor warm, natural sound with no harsh aftertaste. This tweeter’s unique venting system uses a rear chamber with multiple rear vents outside the neodymium magnet, a departure from conventional systems that use a single vent through the magnet’s center. Leaving the magnet fully intact results in a stronger motor structure with a lower resonant frequency, smooth response and amazingly pure, authentic sound. This tweeter is the high point of our speaker—literally.
5.25" Woven Fiberglass Mid-Woofer
Our custom 5.25" mid-woofer excels as the heart and soul of our 5B loudspeaker. The cone is constructed of woven fiberglass—lightweight, rigid and ready to amaze you with its natural bass output. Embracing the woofer is a butyl rubber surround, which creates a compliant yet well-damped suspension that will deliver a lifetime of performance. Lastly (only because something had to be), the magnetically shielded driver boasts a cast aluminum frame and remarkable frequency response. If this all sounds like Greek to you, we’ll translate: You’ll be delighted.
Simulated Furniture-Grade Finish
Each of our speakers is beautifully finished in top-quality Cherry Wood or Black Ash simulated wood-grain vinyl that’s the best you’ll see on any speaker, anywhere, at this price. The cabinetry unites the acoustic qualities of the most expensive loudspeakers with an eye-brightening aesthetic that lets these speakers blend effortlessly into any décor.
Every Intimus 5B cabinet is made of solid 15 mm-thick medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to eliminate unwanted cabinet vibrations that muddy the sound. Muting the speaker walls ensures that the only input to your ears comes from your music, movies and games.
5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
When you make a connection, it's all about convenience. Whether you use banana plugs, bare wire, round pins, flat pins or spades, our binding posts ensure effortless attachments to your new speakers. And though the gold plating may make you feel regal, it has a practical purpose too: Gold resists corrosion and provides the best possible connection to your receiver.
Acoustically Transparent Grille
Nothing stands between you and exceptional sound. We designed a sonically invisible grille that not only looks great, but also protects your precious speakers from curious fingers, claws, snouts, tentacles and trunks.
Wall & Ceiling Mounting
Mount your speakers wherever you want—out of the way and outside the reach of inquisitive children and pets. All 5B speakers come with dual 1/4" threaded inserts on the back for ceiling or wall mounting. Industry standard spacing on these inserts means they'll work with a variety of wall and ceiling mount brands.
Bookshelf Mounting Options
All 5B speakers come with a 1/4" threaded insert on the bottom for securing to a bookshelf or speaker stand. Now you can mount your speakers wherever you want without worrying about them toppling over on Rover.
