Key Features

Patented 1.1" ASR Tweeter

aperion-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Tweeter

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.

 

5.25" Kevlar Woofer With Aluminum Phase Plug

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Woofer

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.

 

Furniture-Grade Finish

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-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.

 

Advanced Crossover

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Xover

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!


Treble Mod

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Sound-Adjustment

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.

 

Rear Port Tube

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Port

A rear reflex port on the V5B bookshelf speaker reduces air-leak noise with increased bass performance.


5-way gold-plated binding posts

aperionaudio-Verus-V8B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Bindingpost

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.

 

Custom Lightweight Magnetic Grilles

aperionaudio-Verus-V5B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Grille

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.
