|Take the novel sonic design and classic cabinetry of our Verus III Grand Tower speaker, then condense it to produce a bookshelf speaker that knocks your socks off. Now that you're barefoot, you might as well sit back and let your ears and eyes delight in the Verus III Grand Bookshelf. This speaker employs our Axially Stabilized Radiator™ V2 silk dome tweeter to bring in the shimmering high frequencies, and our 5" midrange driver with aluminum phase plug to round out the sound. With gorgeous curved cabinets finished in either gloss cherry wood veneer or gloss piano black, the Verus III Grand Bookshelf is sure to swivel heads for both its stunning sound and looks. The Verus III Grand Bookshelf handles movies and music effortlessly, with a flat frequency response and imaging that keeps you in the middle of the action. Perfect for use as front speakers in a small home theater or as surround speakers in a larger home entertainment room, the Verus III Grand Bookshelf will bring your music, movies and games to life, all at a price that matches the size. And if you're worried about your missing socks, we'll throw in a pair.|
|Our design objectives required a tweeter that permits a low crossover frequency in order to unburden the midrange cones above 2.6 kHz, where they tend to beam. To address this conundrum, we went to the drawing board with the goal of developing a tweeter with a diaphragm that resists “rocking” near its resonant frequency. By pinning the diaphragm’s center in a plane above the voice coil, it became “axially stabilized,” which minimized unwanted distortion. The silk dome is coated in a specially developed damping compound to ensure a smooth and accurate response with controlled resonance. A refined "wishbone" waveguide has resulted in better output, with more uniform frequency response and dispersion across its operating range. The ferrofluid cooled voice-coil is driven by a high-energy ferrite magnet motor.|
|All woofers in the Verus family employ Kevlar cones. This exceptionally rigid Kevlar material allows for a warm, clean and dynamic response. This is driven by a high-performance ferrite magnet structure with a vented pole piece to reduce heat build-up and larger T-toke for increased excursion to increase bass response. Between the upgraded driver performance, and the new larger bent port tube design, we were able to crank that much more bass through this compact design, allowing your sound stage to feel more spacious and full than ever before.|
|Time-intensive iterative designing and fine-tuning of the crossover networks have resulted in a smoother, more neutral, and better balanced frequency response across the whole range. Enhanced phase integration between the tweeter and midrange drivers have also resulted in a cleaner, more open sound in the transition region. The Verus III employs superior customized components, which include high quality thin film capacitors to provide minimum dielectric loss, customized Aperion internal wiring with spade connectors to make upgrading a breeze, and we even went as far as customizing the PCB board with an Aperion red color to represent our love of great sounding audio!|
The Treble Mod feature allows users to reduce
the treble response by 3 dB. This serves as a
room correction feature for people with “live”
rooms that have a large amount of reflective surfaces.

We engineered the silk dome ASR to handle frequencies beneath most tweeters. Now the mid-high frequencies emit the same crystalline tones as their counterparts in the penthouse. From the pluck of a violin string to the screech of tires, the result is pure, authentic sound.
Using a woofer with an aluminum phase plug increases the Verus line’s power handling and dynamic range, filling the middle of the sonic spectrum. By recreating the full harmonics of a singer’s voice, the Verus Grand speakers produce vocals as rich as the Rockefellers.
The slim curves of the Verus line’s first-rate cabinetry make us think "supermodel"—but the primo acoustic qualities means she'd have to sound as good as she looks. The finishing touch for every Verus speaker is a high-gloss cherry-wood veneer or piano-black lacquer that’s so right for every décor, your coffee table will be jealous.
Bi-ampable is the techie way of saying you can connect one amplifier to the woofer and the other to the tweeter. Separating the low- and high-frequency wiring helps eliminate interaction, isolate power and reduce distortion.
The 5-way gold-plated binding posts let you connect your speakers any which way you choose: bare wire, banana plugs, spades, round pins or flat pins. Not only does the gold plating give your system some bling, it also serves a more practical purpose: to resist corrosion and provide the best possible connection to your receiver.
To protect the speaker innards from accidents, pets or curious fingers, the entire Verus line sports a lightweight magnetic grille which can easily be removed when you want to show off your beautiful speakers to friends and family.
You can mount your speakers wherever you want -- out of the way and outside the reach of inquisitive children and pets. All bookshelf and satellite speakers come with dual 1/4"-20 threaded inserts on the back for ceiling or wall mounting. Industry standard spacing of 60mm on these inserts means they’ll work with a variety of wall and ceiling mount brands.

"What impressed me more was the smooth and even off-axis roll-off of the speakers as I moved around the room. Dispersion was wonderfully wide and imaging was delightfully precise."
