$899.28$1,249.00
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 the result. We suspect you will be too.

What you'll notice:
+ Reengineered & patented tweeter
+ Updated crossover
+ Improved vocal clarity
+ Tightly controlled midrange and bass response
+ Heavy gauge jumper wire

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Verus II Grand Tower Speaker

If you want the price of your speaker to be as real as the experience it creates, then you're the reason we designed the Verus II Grand Tower. We've handled the engineering and economics, which means you’ll pay thousands less for sound that lands you and your family in the middle of the action. You're not just watching a car chase - you're careening around a corner, engine rumbling, tires squealing, pulse racing. You're not simply listening to the blues - you're sitting in a roadhouse in Mississippi, hearing the guitarists fingers slide on the strings.

To ensure a true-to-life experience from one end of the spectrum to the other, we combined the Verus II Grand Tower's four proprietary woven Kevlar® woofers and midrange drivers with our patented Axially Stabilized Radiator™ V2 silk dome tweeter. This blissful match recreates movie audio and music just as the artists intended, for pure, powerful waves of sound.

Whether you're building a music system that takes you to dreamland or a home theater that rivals the multiplex, the Verus II Grand Tower forms the foundation of performances so immersive that you become part of the show. And even when your ears are taking a break, your eyes will delight in the Verus II Grand Tower's striking good looks that’ll make you want to fire them up again.

 

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 Midrange Drivers With Aluminum Phase Plug

All woofers in the Verus family employ Kevlar cones. This exceptionally rigid material allows for a clean and dynamic response. These midrange "bullet drivers" provide an extraordinary level of detail contributing to the Verus II Grand Tower's full-color sound. The aluminum phase plug and extended voice coil increases power handling to ensure they perform to the max.

 


6.5" Kevlar Woofers



The dual 6.5" 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 bass response.

 

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.

    Patented One-inch Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator™

    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.

    Two 6" Kevlar Woofers

    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 Grand Tower is truly inspiring.

    Two 5" Kevlar Midrange Drivers with Aluminum Phase Plugs

    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 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.

    Bi-ampable 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.


    Lightweight Magnetic Grilles

    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.


    Floor Spikes and Rubber Foot Pads

    Each Verus Grand 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.

    VERUS III GRAND BOOKSHELF

    "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."
