Verus II Grand Tower 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 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

    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.

    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

    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.


    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.

    Unbelievable audio find!

    Posted on 2/25/2018 I’ve been at this audio game since the early ‘80s. I’ve always lived by the curve of diminishing returns because there will always be bigger, better, more expensive. These speakers destroy that idea. I bought the Verus II and Center to replace some B&Ws that weren’t doing it for me anymore. These speakers have jaw dropping sound and beauty! Couldn’t be any happier. The sound they generate even with my older Marantz receiver is just stunning.

    Still the best value available IMO...

    Posted on 12/19/2017 I've owned and listened to many, many speakers over the years. I've owned several models of Aperion speakers, and still have two sets and a sub in use.

    I had the Verus Grand towers in version 1 form, but flipped them as they were a tad too dark for my taste. Once I heard of their redesign I had to hear them for myself, so drove to Aperion's office for a listening session. During their recent holiday sale I could not help but order these as the improved sound quality following their redesign was firmly planted in my memory. They addressed the tonal balance of the old design and improved substantially IMO. I couldn't wait to hear what they sounded like driven by my Vincent Class A hybrid amp.

    Wow! Just WOW! The redesigned Verus Grand II speakers bested my much more expensive Triangle towers made in France (soon to be put up for sale) and confirmed that I made the right choice big time.

    I'm familiar with Aperion's build quality down to the component level. It is my opinion that you won't find a better value, or a better sounding speaker given quality source material.

    Two huge thumbs up!

    Posted on 12/7/2017 I bought my first 5,1 surround system back in 2005. Those were the Intimus model. I liked them so much that last year I bought two of the Verus towers. This year I'm buying 4 more to complete my 7.2 surround system and Using the other speakers in my bedroom which will be 5.1.

    Love These, Well Worth The Money

    Posted on 2/9/2017 Going from Klipsch to the Verus II Grand Tower Speaker is a major difference, the Klipsch tweeter was to much for me. I feel like to tweeter on the Verus blends so nice, sounds beautiful. I'm keeping these speakers!!

    Worth every dime!!

    Posted on 2/6/2017 I looked at Aperion speakers a few years ago, decided to go with someone else. I made a mistake! Had problems with the speakers I did buy, so came back to look again. This time, I decided to buy. Speakers were backordered, but got a call the next day that an "open box" pair was available. Same conditions applied as if I bought them new, so I jumped on it. Had them for 5 days...No way they are going back. You can't go wrong with Aperion!
