Introducing the flagship Verus III Concert V8T Tower Speaker. After 21 years of non-stop engineering development and countless hours toiling in the lab, we are extremely proud to announce our best speaker yet. Featuring dual 8" woofers, dual 5.25" mid-range woofers, our Axially Stabilized Verus Tweeter, and a premium crossover network, our Verus Concert Tower unveils the peak of Aperion Audio engineering. Truly a concert-like experience, we ensured the performance of this speaker will shine an invisible light of happiness and wisdom with our customers as proof to understanding the value of the Aperion Audio's brand. We stand for the best in customer service, and product build and sound quality. So here's a huge thank you to all of our customers who have allowed us to bring audio happiness to your homes for 21+ years. Here's to many more.
Our design objectives required a tweeter that permits a lower 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 minimizes unwanted distortion. The silk dome is coated in a specially developed damping compound to ensure a smooth and accurate response with controlled resonance. The refined "wishbone" waveguide has resulted in better output, with more uniform frequency response and wider 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. With the crossover point starting at about 300 Hz, 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-yoke for increased excursion to increase bass response. The aluminum phase plug and extended voice coil increases power handling to ensure they perform to the max. These midrange "bullet drivers" provide an extraordinary level of detail contributing to the Verus III's full-color palette of sound.|
|The dual 8" Kevlar woofers provide intense punch with a long-throw linear excursion design. These anchor the bottom end of the 3-way crossover network to provide a tight, clean and accurate low-bass response.|
|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 regions. 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!|
|For the midrange and tweeter we have chosen a crossover that has a fast transient response and a minimum of phase shifting. The connectors are of a bi-wiring type so that you can connect to the amplifier with double cables (bi-wiring), or connect to one or two amplifiers to further improve the sound.|
|Optional port plugs are included with the Verus Tower. If the speakers are placed close to a wall or they sound "boomy" in your room, one or both of the foam plugs may used to control the bass response.|
|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.|
|We designed and customized these outriggers to match the sound quality and beautiful looks inspired by our flagship Verus III V8T Concert tower. This new designs brings better stabilization, enhanced acoustical isolation, and bring the Verus III Concert V8T tower speaker to the true audiophile realm.|

We engineered the silk dome ASR tweeter 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.
We use the strongest material coupled with extra-long voice coils to decrease distortion and bring in those low frequencies you love. Strong enough to drive the low end without a dedicated subwoofer, the bass response of the V8T Tower is truly inspiring.
Two midrange drivers with aluminum phase plugs increase 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 speakers produce vocals as rich as the Rockefellers.

Bi-ampable is the techie way of saying you can connect one amplifier to the woofer and the other to the combined mid and 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.
Each Verus Tower speaker comes with a set of floor spikes for carpet and foot pads for hardwood or vinyl floors. Isolating the cabinet from the floor can reduce vibrations, improve the acoustics and produce tighter bass.
