Center Channel Speaker w/ Silk-dome tweeter & Woven fiberglass woofer

A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh—but you ought to be able to tell them apart. That’s the center channel’s job: to make sure you hear every nuance at the heart of your movie. Otherwise Casablanca is just another white house.


The Intimus 5C Center Channel ensures dialog and sound effects so clear, every location in your room becomes a sweet spot. How do we do it? By pairing our audiophile-grade silk-dome tweeter with our custom-designed 4” woven mid-woofer in a vertical array. The 5.25” woofers take a break from higher frequencies and the 5C takes a bow for innately authentic sound.


We finished our precision-fit wood cabinetry in hand-polished pure white as shiny as Sam’s piano. And with the combination of exquisite sound and exceptional looks, the Intimus 5C gives you value that the usual suspects can’t come close to matching.


  • 5.25" Woven fiberglass mid-woofer delivers excellent bass response
  • 4" Woven-fiberglass mid-woofer offers lush midrange sound
  • Hand-polished pure white finish
  • 1" custom designed silk-dome tweeter for smooth, clearly defined highs at even the highest volume levels
  • Vertical array design improves off-axis performance
  • Contoured front edges to blend seamlessly with your décor
  • Anti-resonant cabinet
  • Ten year warranty

This was my first Aperion purchase. If the center speaker sounds great, you can build the rest of your home theater around that. I was blissfully surprised at how great it really sounds. Once my settings were correct I thumbed through the TV listings, and saw that Star Wars: Attck Of The Clones was on. I turned to hear great battle scenes. That's not what hooked me. There was a point where Anakin rubbed his hand on along the sleeve of queen Amidala's dress. I could hear and feel the silkiness. That's when I was hooked! Pure clarity and perfection from an affordable speaker. I am Aperion for life now. (4/25/14)

I accidentally discovered this website one day while going through reviews on hometheaterreview.com and I became interested. But buying something you never heard as well as not having any local store that sells them is always a risk. However 30 day in-home trial with free shipping both ways is no brainer. When the Speakers arrived they were boxed very well. They come wrapped in the pretty nice velvet bag with gold drawstrings. Hooking them up was very easy - a speaker cable that's it. There is an awful lot to like about Aperion Audio's Intimus speakers, especially the cost. The build quality is excellent, as is the attention to detail, such as threaded mounting points both bottom and back, gold plated binding posts. The High Gloss Piano Black finish is beautiful. It has such a perfect mirror finish. The drivers are of high quality and the resulting crystal clear and precise sound is one that is easy to love and listen to for hours on end. My setup is 2 5T's, 2 4T's, 5C, 2 4B's, and the 8D.

I got this 5C to go with a pair of 5Bs initially. It is a huge addition to my home theater! The sound that comes out of it is clear and detailed. Everyone, no matter where they are sitting, can hear the dialog flawlessly. It is also everything a center channel should be to music: transparent! It just disappears when listening to music in surround, blending in seamlessly with the front 5Bs, Bravus II 8D sub, and rear 4Bs. I have never had a sound system that worked so well together. It is truly a surround experience, where everything works so well together that every individual part disappears and you become completely absorbed in the experience of listening to the music or soundtrack, and not the speakers. I have close 200 hours listening and do not know how I lived without this as part of my home theater. Thanks again to all at Aperion for the fantastic service and help. Jason Hicks really helped me with all my questions, never failing to provide a timely and informative response.

I purchased this center channel speaker back in April before the room it was going into was finished. I finally set up my surround sound. This center channel is awesome! The sound quality is fantastic. The craftsmanship is superior and the price is right. What else could you ask for? When the speakers were in transit to my house I received an email from customer service detailing all that they, the speakers, went through along their journey to me. I was taken back a bit as I never experienced that from other companies and probably never will. They did not need to do that however it went a long way as far as feeling important that I purchased through them. Not ever hearing the speakers before I was really hoping that they sounded great because the company seemed to care. All the reviews I read were extremely helpful in determining which center channel to purchase. I went with the Intimus 5C center speaker and the 5B bookshelf speakers for my front left and right and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for excellent crisp sound, quality material at a great price and very considerate and thoughtful customer service. Oh and they come with white gloves!

Having heard the previous 5 line at a buddies house I took the jump on a full set of 5's (B and C). Out of the box I was moderately impressed - but not doing jumping jacks.. Then I realized that Audyssey had incorrectly set all my crossovers (Center was at 100Hz).. I moved the Center to 60Hz and the B's to 80Hz and am loving it.. These speakers are great at any volume and yes, the new tweeter does allow for a more smooth transition into higher volume levels.. These are great speakers but make sure you check your auto-calibration settings if you use it or calibrate manually..
Terrific center audio that also looks great Joseph T.

The 5C has more things going for it than you can possibly list so I'll be brief. First, the audio is great. I'm pushing 60 and have a little trouble with dialog. The 5C' produces a very full sound; the mids are very noticeable. Second is the look. Unlike many centers the 5C doesn't look like a yacht sitting in front of your TV. My wife even said, "oh that looks nice". Great sound, great looks, great purchase.

Awesome, thats all i can tell about this marvelous piece. I made my research for more than a year to buy some nice speakers for my home theater. My config is samsung DLP 56" with onkyo 805. Aperion released their 5 Series at the right time. They are amazing in every aspect. Style, Sound, Satisfaction. It has all the three SSS i look for. It adds a new look to my apartment. It came nicely wrapped in a professional way and i am really proud to be a Aperion owner.

You will not be disappointed with this Center channel if you are looking to clean, tight sound from a relatively small box. I am somewhat constrained in space being in an apartment so size considerations were important, but I did not want to lose performance and frequency response. The 5C really sounds great. It is an excellent compliment to the 5T towers and I am very happy how the sound fills my somewhat awkward room with ease even with the center channel above the TV!
I love this center channel. It looks great, sounds nice and really fits. Thanks Aperion!

I purchased the 5c to compliment a 5.1 surround system. I always had trouble hearing dialogue clearly through the TV speakers, but with the 5c the mid-range is very clear and dialogue in both movies and on TV is outstanding. The problem now is that I must adjust the level when watching HDTV vs regular channels since the sound quality is so different (or I could just stop watching the regular channels, which I am fine with).

I bought the 5.1 Intimus Harmony system... I received the center channel speaker as part of the 5.1 system. The center channel is incredibly clear. The only down side is it's size. It's rather large and it's been difficult to find a TV stand/entertainment center that has a open shelf that will accept this monster.

Very cool indeed! At first, I wasn't all that impressed - not hearing a whole lot of highs from this. Then found out I had "Cinema EQ" turned on - turned it off and WOW! This thing is amazingly clean and detailed.
Wanted to save some dough and buy the 533-VAC, but, I'm totally digging the new tweeter Aperion came up with (I also bought some 4Bs and love their sound).
For the audiophile, I definitely recommend this center. Only one I heard that is better is the Focal (forget the #), but that was $600!

I bought the 5C to test against another center speaker and after listening to the two, it was not a fair fight. The 5C won hands down for clarity and resonance. The other speaker almost sounded like I had a radio in front of my television.
Fit and finish were also a consideration. While the brand x speaker had a vinyl finish, the 5C has a real wood cherry finish.
My wife likes the looks better and also the better sound. I can't turn it up too much or it will run us out of the room.
Excellent product, now I am going to pair them up with some 5T fronts.

Pro Reviews For Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker

Home Theater Review Reviews the Intimus 5T-DB Hybrid HD, January 2010

The Intimus 5C Center Channel Speaker is a component of the Intimus 5T-DB Hybrid HD system.

"This is a real speaker system, meant to produce big sound that equally produced an audiophile grade musical experience at more modest listening levels. Considering their price versus performance - even someone with $20,000 speakers parked in their living room would be impressed with the HD sound of this Aperion system. Overall, the system produces a massive soundstage that is truly immersive on both movies and music. Between the packaging, the well-written instructions, the included accessories and the stellar performance of these speakers, I can recommend them unequivocally. In the new economy and at these prices, these speakers just make sense."
