Aperion Audio Intimus 4BP Bipole Surround Speaker


Provides a Rich Surround Sound Experience at an Entry Level Price

Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer manufacturer of award-winning home audio and home theater speakers, announced the latest in a series of new product releases this spring, the Intimus 4BP Bipole Surround Speaker at a price of $199, making dedicated surround sound more accessible to entry level home theater system buyers.

“In response to customer demand, we’ve introduced the Intimus 4BP to provide home theater and music enthusiasts with greater options in surround sound and affordability,” stated Mike Hopkins, Aperion’s Product Development Lead. “The Intimus 4BP offers flexibility in room placement while supplying wide sound dispersion and an impressive soundstage, all at a great price to our customers.”

“The objective of a surround speaker is to create an enveloping, non-localized sound field. The 4BP’s do this by using a bipole tweeter configuration that spreads the sound over a wide area — all in an affordable, small, easy to mount package,” said Ken Humphreys, Aperion’s Lead Audio Speaker Engineer.

The Intimus 4BP includes a pair of 1″ audiophile grade silk-dome tweeters positioned at opposing angles for maximum sound dispersion, the same high quality 4″ woven-fiberglass woofer used in the popular and award-winning Aperion Intimus 4T Tower Speaker, a newly designed seamless magnetic grill, an anti-resonant cabinet, wall mounting brackets, and is available in furniture-grade cherry wood or high gloss piano black.

The Intimus 4BP sports a new seamless magnetic grill. The new grill maintains the clean flow and beautiful finish of the speaker by eliminating the holes of a traditional tree lock grill mounting system. The powerful neodymium magnets are recessed into the cabinet from the inside to preserve the smooth look on the finished surface. Each grill itself has recessed metal connection points for the magnets that are covered in black felt in order to both eliminate any vibrations while in use and to preserve the furniture-grade finish and elegant appearance.

Mounting Hardware Included for Easy, Do-It-Yourself Setup
The Intimus 4BP includes wall mounting brackets, at no additional cost, for easy DIY home theater system installation. As with all Aperion speakers, the Intimus 4BP comes with an instruction manual and access to the much acclaimed Aperion Home Theater Gurus who are always ready to help with their audio wisdom and advice — both before and after purchase. Any Aperion Audio 5.1 or larger speaker system includes a free Aperion Audio SPL Meter for detailed acoustic calibration.

Professional Installation
For those without the time or desire to perform their own installation, Aperion Audio has partnered with nationally known Zip Express Installation for a reasonably priced, expert job.

For buyer convenience, Aperion has created two preconfigured 5.1 home theater speaker systems that feature popular customer picks plus the Intimus 4BP.
