Aperion Takes Audiophile Speakers Outside

Aperion Outdoor SpeakersAudio gear maker Aperion has introduced its new Intimus Outdoor Speaker, aiming to bring the audiophile quality of its bookshelf speaker systems to the outdoors in a package that can stand up to the elements and provide years of use.

The Intimus Outdoor Speakers (available in black or white) feature a 6.5-inch dual voice coil woven fiberglass driver, a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter, and a weather- and UV-resistant ABS polymer cabinet designed for outdoor use. The speakers feature an adjustable bass switch, 5-way gold-plated binding posts for hardwiring, and an adjustable mounting system that lets users set up an audio field once the speakers are set up.

“We’ve chosen not to compromise on the bass sound quality which is often affected by outdoor speaker placement. By adding a bass adjustment switch, the listener is able to customize the level of bass, whether under an eave or in a bass boosting corner,” said Aperion lead speaker engineer Ken Humphreys, in a statement. “By using a dual voice coil woofer, the listener can simply flip a switch for more or less bass.”

In addition to high quality audio, Aperion seems to think their outdoor speakers will stand up: they’re offering free lifetime customer support, a 10-year warranty, a 30-day in-home audition, and free shipping both ways on the speakers. They’re available now for $149 apiece—including shipping.
