Aperion Verus II Grand Center Channel Speaker (Cherry Gloss, Each)
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
