Verus II Grand Tower SpeakerIf 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.

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.
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!
