New speakers give discriminating listeners more control over sound and esthetics, offering high end features at a competitive price
Aperion Audio, a direct-to-consumer manufacturer of award-winning home audio and home theater speakers, this week announced enhanced versions of their in-wall and in-ceiling speakers which include aimable audiophile grade silk-dome tweeters, and bass and treble adjustment switches — one of the features normally found only with more expensive in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. The new Aperion architectural speakers are voiced to blend seamlessly with the rest of the Intimus line of award-winning speakers.
“Our new line of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers are an effective solution to the challenge of achieving excellence in sound for the music and movie lover, while also satisfying the interior design conscious who enjoy the invisibility of speakers set into the wall or ceiling,” says Aperion Product Development Lead, Mike Hopkins.
Aperion’s Lead Audio Speaker Engineer, Ken Humphreys, notes that once installed, an in-wall or in-ceiling speaker is fixed at a specific point in a room, making adjustments difficult. “The advantage of aimable tweeters for in-wall speakers is that the directional treble frequencies can either be aimed into the listening area for most applications or away from the listening area in order to get a more diffuse, ambient sound that is desirable in surround sound use. And since this type of speaker may or may not get placed near bass-boosting side-walls, we felt it was important to have a bass adjusting feature. From a design point of view, this is fairly hard to do as it requires the woofer to have two voice coils, one of them dedicated to the bass adjusting signal from a separate section on the crossover,” says Humphreys.

As the newest speakers in Aperion Audio’s acclaimed Intimus line, the 6-IW and 6-IC are not only builtfor visual assimilation in any home, but also produce fantastic, immersive sound with high-end features. In addition to aimable tweeters, the Intimus 6-IC In-Ceiling speaker features an angled woofer which may be pointed toward the “sweet spot” during installation.
