Aperion Audio Announces The Newly Voiced Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line
Raising the Bar On It’s Award-Winning Mid-Sized Speakers
NEW YORK, NY – April 28, 2005 – Aperion Audio, the first company to provide a totally risk-free buying experience, today announced the newly voiced Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line. The Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line, designed to be the perfect compromise between size and full range performance, will debut at the Primedia Home Entertainment Expo, at the New York Hilton, in the Aperion Audio double suite (Rooms 1022, 1023). Already an award-winning speaker series, the new Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line has been re-voiced to compete with speakers, which are double to triple its price.
“We like to think of the Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line as the Mini-Cooper of speakers,” said Win Jeanfreau, founder and CEO of Aperion Audio. “This speaker line outperforms its larger, more expensive competitors but comes in a compact package.”
The Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line provides versatility, full-range sound and value. The 5-inch size can accommodate all mounting options from stand, ceiling, wall or bookshelf. In addition to its versatility, the Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line is built with Aperion’s signature 1-inch HDF furniture-grade cabinet that minimizes resonance and coloration, resulting in natural sound reproduction. Custom drivers eliminate distortion in the audible range, and the company’s new HD-X3 crossover technology provides the multi-award-winning Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line with a new and improved voice.
Prior awards for the Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line include: CNET Editor’s Choice Award: August 2004; Unique Hardware Blue Ribbon Award: February 2004; Designtechnica.com Editor’s Choice Award Winner: February 2004; Audiorevolution.com Top 100: December 2003/2004; CNET Editor’s Choice Award: March 2003; DVD ETC.

Features of the 5-Series Speaker Line
1″ Audiophile-Grade Silk-Dome Tweeter
All Intimus speakers are built with 1″ silk dome tweeters, providing remarkably smooth and natural detail. This audiophile-grade tweeter features ferrofluid cooling for high-power handling, smooth response and an enhanced heat sink, resulting in less distortion.
5.25″ Custom PVA Woofer
Custom PVA- Damped 5.25″ Midrange is the heart and soul of our Intimus 5-Series Speaker Line. The cone is treated with Poly Vinyl Acetate (PVA). This custom cone provides a fast and natural response, while the PVA helps make it more rigid and longer lasting. The magnetically shielded driver sports a solid polymer frame, heavy rubber surround and a super flat frequency response.
Each 5-Series Speaker is made of 1″ thick high-density fiberboard (HDF) to eliminate unwanted resonance and is finished in real cherry wood or high-gloss black lacquer. This first-rate cabinetry unites the acoustic-damping qualities of only the most expensive loudspeakers with a true furniture-grade finish.
All drivers in the 5-Series Speaker Line are magnetically shielded to protect video monitors from magnetic interferences, allowing placement on or near viewing devices.
HD-X3 Impedance Leveling Crossover Technology
Patent pending HD-X3 crossover technology levels the impedance load across the entire frequency range, creating a remarkably flat frequency response and eliminating the detrimental effects of resistance introduced by long runs of speaker wire.

5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
Each 5-Series speaker comes standard with audiophile quality gold-plated five-way binding posts, and accepts banana plugs (4mm), spades (3/8″), pins or bare wire to provide pure signal transfer and ultimate connection flexibility.
Acoustically Transparent Grille
An acoustically transparent grille is included with each speaker to protect the drivers from inquisitive kids and pets. The grille cloth is sonically invisible so speaker performance isn’t compromised.
Wall, Ceiling, Stand & Shelf Mounting
All 5-Series speakers come with dual ¼” threaded inserts on the back for ceiling or wall mounting and a single threaded insert on the bottom for securing to a stand or shelf. By following industry standard spacing, these inserts work seamlessly with mounts from OmniMount, B-Tech, or other popular brands, and eliminate the need to drill holes.
