Aperion Audio, a manufacturer and direct seller of home theater loudspeakers and subwoofers, has just announced the launch of the Intimus 4T, a two-way tower speaker featuring dual 4” woven fiberglass composite mid-woofers and audiophile grade 1” silk dome tweeters. The 4T is the newest model in the completely redesigned Intimus line. Created as a companion to our incredibly popular 4B bookshelf speakers, the new 4T’s offer amazing performance in a very compact package according to Aperion Audio.

"We listened to our customers andlooked at opportunities in the market. Customers asked for small, highperformance tower speakers for their new flat panel TV’s because the optionsare incredibly limited.” says CEO Winthrop Jeanfreau. “People are forced to choose betweenlow-end home theater in a box products or very expensive specialtyspeakers.  We believe the 4T’s area category killer. They offer all the performance of the specialty brands atless than half the cost, so they are a tremendous value.”

The new Intimus 4T’s combine dual 4”woven fiberglass composite mid-woofers with an audiophile grade 1” silk dometweeter to deliver tremendous bass along with incredible clarity and detail.Because the 4T’s are so small, they offer easy placement in virtually any room.The new 4T’s are available in both gloss black and real cherry furniture gradefinishes and a new contemporary design aesthetic.

The are designed primarily to be mainspeakers in small to medium sized rooms, or they can be used as surrounds aspart of a larger system since they are voice matched to the rest of the Intimusline. The new Intimus 4T’s are available directly from aperionaudio.com for$650/pair.

Intimus 4T Features:

Powerful 2-Way Tower Design in aPractical Size
Aperion started with their award winning4B bookshelf speaker then extended the height of its svelte and profile andadded another custom designed 4” mid-woofers to give it extended bassperformance.

1" Audiophile-Grade Silk-DomeTweeter
All Intimus speakers feature 1-inch,audiophile-grade, silk dome tweeters that have been engineered optimal sonicperformance, even at very high volume levels. This new tweeter features aunique system of venting to a rear chamber that employs multiple rear ventsoutside the neodymium magnet instead of the traditional design that uses asingle vent through the magnet’s center. This new design allows the magnet toremain fully intact, resulting in a stronger motor structure with a lowerresonant frequency, smooth response, and an amazingly pure, natural, anddistortion free sound.

Dual 4” Woven-Fiberglass Mid-woofers
Aperion’ custom 4" woven-fiberglassmid woofers were designed make music, movies and games come to life accordingto Aperion Audio. The cones are made of strong and lightweight woven fiberglasscomposite, offering super fast and accurate response. These magneticallyshielded drivers sport a solid cast aluminum frame, heavy rubber surround andextra-long excursion – ensuring excellent bass performance for years to come.

Anti-Resonant Cabinet
Every Intimus speaker cabinet is made ofrock solid high density fiberboard (HDF) to eliminate unwanted cabinetvibrations, effectively muting the walls of the speaker, ensuring that the onlyvoice you hear is coming from your CD or DVD.

Magnetic Shielding
All Aperion speakers are magneticallyshielded so that they can be placed near any video monitor, ensuring a “rainbowfree” video experience.

5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
All Aperion speakers feature 5-way goldplated binding posts for use with banana plugs, bare wire, round pins, flatpins or spades. The gold plating resists corrosion and provides the bestpossible connection to your receiver.
