Verus II Grand Center Channel Speaker

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 mid-range 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 mid range and bass response

    Verus II Grand Center Channel Speaker
    From delicate whispers to chain-reaction explosions, most of what you hear in a movie or music video 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 II 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 II 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 new Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator™ V2 tweeter, paired with our 4" woven Kevlar mid-range speaker, faithfully reproduces the voices and upper range on-screen. Two proprietary 6" woofers dynamically handle the lows. And all these components fit into a gracefully curved cabinet with hidden rubber feet—so you can set the Verus II Grand Center Channel at the best angle to enhance your room’s sweet spot or the speaker’s stellar looks.

    Features

    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.

    Two 6" 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 Drivers with Aluminum Phase Plugs


    Two mid-range 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.

    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.


    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.


    Floor Spikes and Feet

    Each Verus Grand Tower speaker comes with a set of floor spikes and feet. Isolating the cabinet from the floor can reduce vibrations and produce tighter bass.
