The speakers were unveiled at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver, CO. The Verus Grand family is a high-end complement to the company’s Aperion Intimus line of home theater speakers.
“The goal for the Aperion Verus Grand line was to create an accurate, uncolored, lifelike experience,” says Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s lead speaker engineer and a 25-year veteran of speaker system and component design for the audio industry’s most respected brands. “To do that, our team built the entire speaker system from the bottom up, engineering each component for maximum sonic impact while keeping the cost in reach of most home theater audio buffs.”
“A key part of the solution is our new Axially Stabilized Radiator tweeter, which takes the burden of reproducing upper-mid frequencies off the mid-range driver,” Humphreys adds. “That allows each driver to do the job it does best. The result is wider dispersion for an expanded soundstage and lower distortion to boost clarity.”

- 3-Way, Sealed Enclosure design
- One 1″ Aperion Axially Stabilized Radiator silk dome tweeter
- One 4″ Woven Kevlar Mid-range driver with Aluminum Phase Plug
