Introducing the big brother of the APERION Verus bookshelf collection, and perfect counterpart to the bigger V8T Concert tower, we bring you the Verus III Concert V8B Bookshelf Speakers! For years we’ve been asked to create a bigger bookshelf speaker, and the time has finally arrived! As with all of our Verus family of speakers, the 8-inch midwoofer uses a classic Kevlar cone, which was designed and produced in-house. Top that off with the Aperion Patented 1.1" APERION "Axially Stabilized Radiator" V2 silk dome tweeter for the top end, and bada bing - Verus III Concert V8B.

The Verus V8B 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! Being rated at 6 Ohms and an efficiency of 88 dB, the V8B are easy to drive with most AVR's, and their full potential can be seen with a high quality integrated amp.

The V8B uses an HDF cabinet and HDF front baffle, available in either a gloss cherry veneer, or piano gloss black finish. The HDF cabinet offers a consistent acoustic response, and the curvilinear aspect of the cabinet helps eliminate standing waves inside the chamber. The cabinet for the Verus line naturally poses a challenge in terms of the woodwork. The curvilinear cabinets are hard to produce, and there are many steps to make the cabinets according to Aperion's QC standard. The painting process can be time consuming as well. While the curved cabinets are difficult to produce, the results yield a unique look. The gloss finishes bring a furniture-grade aspect to the speaker for your living room and home theater. Regarding the gloss cherry wood veneer cabinets - the towers and bookshelf speaker wood veneer strips are cut from the same tree, to ensure the wood grain is matched as identically as possible between each cabinet. Before the high gloss lacquer is applied, the cabinets are stained in pairs for cherry shade consistency.

The Verus III Concert V8B speaker is designed for those seeking a full bodied sound stage as a 2-channel system, or driving your front stage or surround channels in a powerful home theater. Particularly those looking to bring recordings to life, with excitement and presence that immerses you in a concert-like experience leaving you with the intangible feeling when music hits you.

Features

Patented 1.1" ASR Tweeter

aperion-Verus-V8B-Bookshelf-Tweeter

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.

 

8" Kevlar Long-Throw Woofer

aperionaudio-Verus-V8B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Woofer

Using a 8“ woofer 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

aperionaudio-Verus-V8B-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-V8B-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-V8B-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-V8B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Port

A rear reflex port on the V8B 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-V8B-Bookshelf-Speaker-Grille

To protect the speaker's drivers 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.
