Novus 5C is a perfect choice as a Centre Speaker in High Class Multichannel Setups. During the development, special attention was paid to vocal reproduction and an optimized dispersion pattern. Both factors are of fundamental importance for homogeneous and natural surround sound, as reproduction of the Human Voice is primarily projected via the Centre Channel. The optimization was done by adding a 4" Aramid-Fiber Cone Mid-Woofer and by spending huge effort on the development of the high quality crossover. The customized drivers are unique Novus series and provide a matching acoustic balance and sonic signature throughout the Frequency range to highest dynamics and accuracy. Thus Novus 5C Center is a key element for creating an immersive home cinema experience.

After searching the world for the finest of silk, we stumbled upon a natural fiber from Germany and couldn’t resist integrating it into the tweeter dome of the Novus speaker family. Each Novus speaker is embedded with our new tweeter – a high-end natural fiber dome membrane which utilizes a neodymium motor and ferrofluid cooled voicecoil to help give these tweeters a flat frequency response that can extend up to 30 kHz. These design specs, in combination of Aperion engineering knowledge and 20 years of experience has allowed us to create a tweeter so clear, that your ears can listen to music and dialog with ease.
A tweeter may be the “highlight” of the speaker, but a strong combination of woofers can prove to be the true foundation of a speaker. The Novus center channel speaker utilizes myriad of our new aramid-fiber woofer cones to bring forth a full range of sound. It features a unique tooled rubber surround to conceal the mounting screws in each speaker. The dual 5.25” active woofers have a long-throw linear excursion design which allows makes for a broad dynamic range and low distortion. The dual woofer combo also greatly improves bass response and prevents lobing, enabling a broader sweet spot. The 4” mid-woofer is fit to execute dialog performance so great, that you’ll become a part of the action.
The sloping front baffle design creates an even phase alignment between treble and bass drivers. Unlike the Boötes void, a porthole can enhance the bass performance of many speaker cabinets. In the case of the Novus, we went with a slotted reflex port design. This front ported design reduces air-leak noise and increases the bass performance throughout the room, so sit back and enjoy those bass vibrations.
Our design team kept aesthetics at the top of mind while designing our Novus family. Whether you have a dedicated black-out home theater room, or an open sunshine filled family room, the Stealth Black and Pure White painting are sure to be endorsed your other furniture. The sleek curved top cabinet radius is a step away from your traditional “box-style” speaker, which contribute a smooth look in your room. To protect the speaker innards from accidents, pets, or curious fingers, the Novus line sports a lightweight magnetic grille, which can easily be removed when it’s time to show off the goods to your friends and family.
