So how can lows give you a true high? By pumping out bass with quick reflexes and thundering power. We got to third base with our drivers—a single active down-firing 10-inch driver and double 10-inch side-firing passive radiators on the sides—then pushed up the power to 500 watts. Home run! Muscular, defined bass that gives your movies and music even more gut-wrenching impact.
All that plus a timeless design that seamlessly integrates with your décor.

Single Active & Dual 10" Passive High-Excursion Custom Aluminum Drivers
We designed Bravus with dual custom aluminum drivers for efficient high-performance. One part rigid precision, one part low bass extension - shake well with a healthy helping of linearity, and you're left with three drivers to take your music and movies to new depths. Aluminum offers the perfect blend of strength and mass to keep the class D digital amp operating efficiently. Couple this with a heavy duty rubber surround and a precision motor structure and you get bass that is deep and linear. To make things even better, we packed three drivers in a small gorgeous enclosure so your Bravus 10" sub offers the performance of a larger sub but takes up less space.
500 Watt Digital Power Amplifier
All of the Bravus II subwoofers use an efficient high power class D amplifier with a high current switching power supply. This allows maximum performance output and deep bass authority while maintaining the musical accuracy and detail you expect from Aperion Audio.
Detachable Power Cord w/ Switchable Voltage
We make it easy to upgrade your cord or take your subwoofer on the road. No matter if you're in Los Angeles or Lisbon, you can easily switch between 110V and 220V power. Just plug in the correct cord, switch the voltage and enjoy. One caveat, though -- We're not responsible for international noise ordinances, so tread carefully and bring bribe money.
Line Level Inputs
Every Aperion subwoofer comes standard with an LFE line level input that connects to any receiver’s subwoofer pre-out. Or, if you don't have a sub-out connection, use the left and right low level inputs with the low level outputs from your pre-amp or receiver.
High Level Inputs
Hook your new subwoofer up to any receiver or amplifier! If you don’t have a sub-out connection on your receiver, you can use the left and right speaker outputs to make setup a snap.
Small Internally Braced 1" HDF Sealed Enclosure
Powerful bass needs a sturdy cabinet. Every Bravus II 10D subwoofer is built out of strong 1" HDF and internally braced to reduce cabinet vibration to nearly nothing.
Timeless Design & Furniture-Grade Finish
Each of our Bravus subwoofers features a timeless design aesthetic and is beautifully finished in high gloss piano black, allowing them to effortlessly blend into your decor. This first-rate cabinetry unites the acoustic qualities of only the most expensive subwoofers with a furniture-grade finish so handsome your coffee table will be jealous.
Leveling Floor Spikes and Footers
Included with each Bravus subwoofer is a set of metal floor spikes with footers and a set of rubber feet. Use the metal spikes on carpet for tighter bass by decoupling the sub from the floor. If you have hard floors, use the footers with your metal spikes or use the included rubber feet to improve bass response and protect your surfaces from scratches or dents.
Acoustically Transparent Grille
Nothing stands between you and your sound. We designed a sonically invisible grille that not only looks great, but also protects your precious woofers from curious fingers, claws or snouts.
Anything less isn't enough.Posted on 12/11/2015 I have the Intimus 5T, 5C, and the BP surrounds. I considered the 8 inch version but was talked into the larger Bravus 10D, and glad I was. I enjoy everything from hip hop to classical, especially the original Charlie Brown, by Vince Guaraldi. I didn't know what I was missing on the low end until I integrated this sub. It's a perfect match for the Intimus towers, great for stereo and for movies. I took my favorite music to a friends house and listened to speaker costing twice as much and decided I had a more true sound with my set up. Thank you Aperion for such a great combination.
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."
