1" Audiophile-Grade Silk-Dome Tweeter
We engineered the 1-inch, audiophile-grade, silk-dome tweeter for optimal sonic performance - even at the highest volume levels. Do you savor warm, sparkling sound with no harsh aftertaste? Perfect. This tweeter's unique venting system uses a rear chamber with multiple rear vents outside the neodymium magnet which is a departure from conventional systems that use a single vent through the magnet's center. Leaving the magnet fully intact results in a stronger motor structure with a lower resonant frequency, smooth response and amazingly pure, authentic sound. This tweeter is the high point of our speaker - literally.
One 5.25" Woven-Fiberglass Woofer
Our custom 5.25" woofer excels as the heart and soul of our 5B loudspeaker. The cone is constructed of woven-fiberglass - lightweight, rigid and ready to amaze you with its natural bass output. Embracing the woofer is a butyl rubber surround, which creates a compliant yet well-dampened suspension that will deliver a lifetime of performance. Last but (only because something had to be), the magnetically shielded driver boasts a cast aluminum frame and remarkable frequency response. If this all sounds like Greek to you, we'll translate: You'll be delighted.
Magnetically-Shielded Tweeter & Woofer
Your Aperion speakers are magnetically shielded so that they can be placed near any video monitor, ensuring a "rainbow free" video experience.
5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
When you make a connection, it's all about convenience. Whether you use banana plugs, bare wire, round pins, flat pins or spades, our binding posts ensure effortless attachments to your new speakers. And though the gold plating may make you feel regal, it has a practical purpose - Gold resists corrosion and provides the best possible connection to your receiver.
Every Intimus 5B cabinet is made of solid 18mm-thick medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to eliminate unwanted cabinet vibrations that muddy the sound. Muting the speaker walls ensures that the only input to your ears comes from your music, movies and games.
Each of our Intimus speakers are finely groomed into a suave black tux, and it's quite the detailed process. We apply layer after layer of lacquer, hand sanding and polishing between coats to achieve a deep and brilliant shine. The precision-fit cabinetry unites the acoustic qualities of the most expensive loudspeakers with a curved-edge aesthetic that lets your Intimus speaker blend effortlessly with any décor.
Nothing stands between you and exceptional sound. We've voiced the speakers with the grilles on to ensure precise performance that not only looks great, but also protects your precious speakers from curious fingers, claws, snouts, tentacles and trunks.
Wall & Ceiling Mounting
Mount your speakers wherever you want - out of the way and outside the reach of inquisitive children and pets. All of our speakers (aside from floor-standers) come with dual 1/4" threaded inserts on the back for ceiling or wall mounting. Industry standard spacing on these inserts means they'll work with a variety of wall and ceiling mount brands.
Speaker Stand Mounting Option
All bookshelf speakers come with a 1/4" threaded insert on the bottom for securing the speaker to a stand. Now you can mount your speakers wherever you want without worrying about them toppling over on Rover.
