***TEST*** Verus II Grand Bookshelf Speaker Pair

Why the improvement? Because we simply can’t leave well enough alone. Although the numerous industry awards spoke volumes about the success of our first bite at this apple, we still felt there was room for improvement. Version II of our Verus line sports a new, patented tweeter of our own design which allows them to perform a variety of sonic enhancements.

The results… a clearer high-end with a wider listening sweet spot, an even more articulate midrange and higher power handling capacity to name a few. Give them a serious listen with our 60-day risk-free audition. We’re pretty pleased with our effects. We suspect you will be too.

What you'll notice:

+ Reengineered & patented tweeter
+ Upgraded heavier gauge crossover
+ Improved vocal clarity
+ Tightly controlled midrange and bass response
+ Heavy gauge jumper wire

Verus II Grand Bookshelf Speaker Pair

Take the novel sonic design and classic cabinetry of our Verus II Grand Tower speaker, then condense them 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 II Grand Bookshelf. This speaker uses our new patented ASR V2 tweeter to bring in the 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 II Grand Bookshelf is sure to swivel heads for both its stunning sound and looks. The Verus II 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 II 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.


Patented ASR Tweeter

Our design objectives required a tweeter that permits a low crossover frequency in order to unburden the midrange cones above 2.3 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,” allowing it to easily handle frequencies an octave lower than traditional tweeter drivers, while still reproducing well into the high frequencies.  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.



5.25" Kevlar Woofer With Aluminum Phase Plug

All woofers in the Verus family employ Kevlar cones. This exceptionally rigid material allows for a 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 increase bass response. The aluminum phase plug and extended voice coil increases power handling to ensure they perform to the max.



Advanced Crossover

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. Superior components including high quality Mylar and polypropylene capacitors serve to improve voicing performance.

    New One-inch Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator

    We engineered the new 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.

    5" Kevlar Woofer with Aluminum Phase Plug

    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.

    Furniture-Grade Finish

    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.

    5-way gold-plated binding posts

    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.

    Magnetically Held Perforated Metal Grilles

    To protect the speaker innards from accidents, pets or curious fingers, the entire Verus line sports perforated metal grilles that let sound flow through unchecked, improving imaging and reducing high-frequency reflection. Hidden magnets hold the grilles in recessed baffles.

    Wall & Ceiling Mounting

    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.
