Verus III Grand Center Channel Speaker

$699.00
Aperion strikes again! We are on a never-ending quest to achieve the perfect sound and after countless hours toiling at Aperion labs, we bring you Verus III. While the first two versions are loved by many, our team won’t stop until we’ve crafted the ultimate speaker.

Our last iteration spotlighted a redesigned tweeter. This time around we’ve further refined our drivers and hyper-focused on beefing up the crossover network, ultimately unifying all the components to create our best performing speaker yet. Not to mention the new lightweight magnetic grille!

What you'll notice:

  • Ferrofluid added to the tweeter
  • Optimized custom crossover network design
  • Extended voicecoil midrange drivers
  • Lightweight magnetic grilles

    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
    Verus III Grand Center Channel Speaker
    The center channel is arguably the most important speaker in a home theater system. From delicate whispers to chain-reaction explosions, most of what you hear in a movie happens at the center of your screen. So at the heart of your high-end home theater system, you need a speaker that delivers extremely accurate vocals and full-range sound reproduction. The Verus III Grand Center Channel speaker covers the middle ground admirably, bringing on-screen action to life in mid-size and larger rooms. But be prepared for the one-two punch of amazing sound and gorgeous looks. We’re considering a whiplash warning. The punchline to a joke, the lyrics to a song, the subtle sounds that propel a plot—what else have you been missing? Nada will be the answer with the Verus III Grand Center Channel speaker. We’ve fine-tuned our award-winning vertical array design to improve dispersion, ensuring a wide net of sound that envelops every seat in your house.

    The incredible sonic clarity of our refined Axially Stabilized Radiator™ V2 tweeter, paired with our 4" woven Kevlar midrange speaker, faithfully reproduces the voices and upper range on-screen. Two Kevlar 6.5" woofers dynamically handle the lows and give depth to all dialog and action sound effects. And all these components fit into a gracefully curved cabinet with hidden rubber feet—so you can set the Verus III Grand Center Channel at the best angle to enhance your room’s sweet spot or the speaker’s stellar looks.

     

    Patented ASR 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.

     

    4" Kevlar Midrange Driver With Aluminum Phase Plug

    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 while the aluminum phase plug increases power handling to ensure it performs to the max. This 4" midrange "bullet driver" provides an extraordinary level of detail allowing the vocal range to cut for maximum dialogue clarity. 

     


    Two 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. Combined with the 4" midrange and ASR tweeter, this speaker delivers pure sonic utopia bringing all the elements together for a richly accurate and natural sound.  
    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 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!

     

     

     

    VoiceRight™ Bass Correction

    The Verus III Grand Center employs Aperion’s own VoiceRight  technology. This is a bass correction switch that allows you to get the best performance possible whether your speaker is on a stand, wall mounted, or in a cabinet. Simply flip the switch on the back of your speaker to match how your center is placed in your room.

    Patented One-inch Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator™

    We engineered the 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.

    Two 6.5" Kevlar Woofers

    The strength of Kevlar gives our woofers a trio of advantages: even dispersion, enhanced acoustics and bulletproof reliability. Add extra-long voice coils to decrease distortion and you’ve got the low bass you love. With woofers powerful enough to drive all but bottom-feeding frequencies without a dedicated subwoofer, you’ll find Verus’ bass response truly earth-shaking.

    One 4" Kevlar Midrange Driver with Aluminum Phase Plug

    The midrange driver with 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.

    VoiceRight™ Technology

    Subtle nuances in detail make all the difference between a "good home theater" and an "amazing theater experience". The Verus Grand Center employs VoiceRight™ technology that compensates for the effects of reflected sound off of large screen TVs and cabinetry. This allows you to place the Grand Center where it fits your room. Just set it down, flip the switch to compensate for the nuances of your rooms, and have a "you ARE there" experience.

    Vertical Array Design

    We engineered our vertical array center to provide flawless center channel performance no matter where you're sitting in the room. Our vertical array design makes every seat in the house perfect, so every member of your family can enjoy the crisp, clear dialog and sound without having to rock-paper-scissors over who’s sitting in the center of the couch.

    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

    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.
