Home Theater Review 2011 "Best Affordable Speaker Winner" awarded to the Aperion Verus Grand Speakers!
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 Grand Tower. We’ve handled the engineering and economics, so you pay thousands less for sound that lands you in the middle of the action. So you’re not watching a car chase—you’re careening around a corner, engine rumbling, tires squealing, pulse racing. You’re not listening to the blues—you’re sitting in a roadhouse in Mississippi, hearing the guitarist’s 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 Grand Tower’s four proprietary woven Kevlar® woofers and mid-range drivers with our patent-pending Axially Stabilized Resonator™ tweeter. This blissful match recreates movie audio and music just as the artists intended, for pure, powerful waves of sound.
Whether you’re building your dream music system or a home theater that rivals the multiplex, the Verus Grand Tower forms the foundation for performances so immersive you’re part of the show. And even when your ears are taking a break, your eyes will delight in the Verus Grand Tower’s striking good looks.

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
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 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.
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.
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.
