Introducing The Aperion Audio Super Tweeter

The NEW Aperion Audio Super Tweeter

In the real world, we are surrounded by sounds and frequencies which extend beyond the realm of what we perceive as ‘sound’. However, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that we ‘sense’ these high frequencies, just as we ‘feel’ sub-sonic sounds.

The way in which these ultrasonic frequencies interact with what we cognitively hear is believed to make a big difference to the realism and ‘natural’ way in which we hear sound. Many listeners say that a Super Tweeter can provide a more relaxed and natural sound within an audio system, and a surprising improvement in bass detail, thanks to a more balanced frequency spectrum.

Super Tweeter speakers can deliver an incredible transient response along with a wide and smooth reproduction across the conventional audio high-frequency spectrum.

Why Would I Want To Try A Super Tweeter Speaker?

Whether you have a 2-channel set up or a beefy home theater system, if you love crisp clear audio you should try a pair of Super Tweeter speakers with your system. With the increasing quality of modern recording technology, things like super audio CD's and Hi-res digital files have greatly surpassed 20-20KHz and can produce audio frequencies as high as 100 kHz. Most traditional speakers can only produce up to 20 kHz and are unable to completely convey the high frequencies in the recording.

The Super Tweeter Phase Conundrum

Phase happens when two sound waves clash and ultimately cancel each other out, meaning that the sound becomes unpleasant to listen to. Bass sound waves travel slower than treble sound waves, so if the treble and bass sound waves are traveling from the same location, the treble wave will reach your ear before the bass. Most loudspeaker brands compensate for this by adjusting the phase of the tweeter and woofers producing sound waves.

The issue is that most Super Tweeter speakers now in the market do not have adjustable parameters for phase. But Aperion Audio’s Super Tweeter Speaker is adjustable across the frequency band, so it blends into audio system.

The Aperion Audio Super Tweeter features a six-step adjustable crossover switch that can be used to adjust the phase to your preference. Frequency adjustment points range from 6K, 8K, 10K, 12K, 14K, 15K! A well-tuned Super Tweeter speaker does not sound very loud, with a low sensitivity of 90 dB. The speaker allows you to feel the treble sound pressure and experience the higher frequency range which you may not have heard or felt before. Of course, with everything related to sound, you will have to take some time to test out the different settings to see what feels best to you.

The Aperion Audio Super Tweeter speaker utilizes a premium Ribbon Tweeter to create a full range of clear rich audio details that provide strong sense of three-dimensional sound. The Ribbon Tweeter features a Horn Tweeter design that creates the desired sound diffusion and sound pressure distribution. The resulting sound will enhance any home audio systems with better timbre and better ultra-high frequency extension.

Aperion Super Tweeter speaker features a high-density curved cabinet design, exquisite gloss black piano finish, gold-plated 5-way binding posts, crossover point adjustment knob, a treble adjust jumper and a ribbon Tweeter with aluminum faceplate. This speaker is extremely well built for a very modest price.

Super Tweeters For Superior Surround Experience

The Aperion Audio Super Tweeter speaker compliments many kinds of speakers such as full range floor-standing tower speakers, bookshelf speakers and even surround speakers. These aren’t just for music lovers and audiophiles as they work well for watching movies. Most movie mixes are recorded with frequencies greater than 10,000 Hz so rear surrounds speakers also benefit from the Super Tweeter speakers allowing you to have the best experience possible.

Where Do I Put My Super Tweeter?

You can place your Aperion Audio Super Tweeter speaker on the top or immediately beside your main left and right speakers. A good rule of thumb is the closer to the main speakers the better. The closer your Super Tweeter is to the main speaker, the better the sound effect will be. This placement also reduces the possibility of phasing issues. Placement of the Super Tweeter in line with the main speakers better allows the midrange and bass sound waves to reach your ears at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I connect the Super Tweeter speaker to my passive speakers?

Answer: Connect a speaker wire that has spade or ring connectors on one end of the wire to the bookshelf or tower speaker and connect the other end to the Super Tweeter.

  • How do I connect the Super Tweeter speaker to my active (powered) or Bluetooth speakers?

Answer: If it’s a sealed box, or portable type of Bluetooth speaker, you most likely will not be able to use a Super Tweeter with this speaker.

  • How much will the Super Tweeter change the treble response?

Answer: The crossover setting will have the most affect on the treble sound. If your regular speaker doesn’t produce frequencies above 14 kHz very well, then that would be a good starting point for your crossover. Generally setting the crossover to 14 kHz or 16 kHz will add a nice touch to the treble response.

  • What speaker wire is best for the Super Tweeter speaker?

Answer: As with all cable, we recommend at least 14 gauge to minimize any loss of electrical current.

  • What’s the highest frequency the Super Tweeter will reach?

Answer: The Aperion Audio Super Tweeter can reach up to 30 kHz.

  • Can you adjust the crossover frequency while music is playing?

Answer: Yes, in fact this is highly recommended to experiment with, so you can find the sound that works best for you.

  • What length of speaker cable do I need?

Answer: You shouldn’t need more than a few feet, but it depends on the distance from your bookshelf or tower speakers binding post inputs to the Super Tweeter inputs.

  • Can I buy an odd number of Super Tweeter speakers?

Answer: Yes, just give us a call to make this request.
