Aperion Audio unveils the Aperion Verus Forte home theater speakers

The Verus Forte was engineered from the start for highly accurate sound reproduction that immerses movie and music lovers into a performance.

“We worked to produce uncolored, authentic sound in a small form-factor speaker by achieving a flat frequency response, a power response that slowly and evenly rolls off toward the highs and the lowest possible distortion,” says Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer and a 25-year-veteran of speaker and component design for the audio industry’s most respected brands. “The Axially Stabilized Radiator tweeter we developed specifically for the Verus family handles a range beneath most tweeters, supporting the mid-range driver so the mid-high frequencies are as crystal clear as those at the top of the range.”

Like the Verus Grand series, the new Verus Forte line is a high-end complement to Aperion Audio’s award-winning Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers.
