Need some input from the gurus out here. I’vehad some struggles with the Aperion Verus tweeters and need to know what themost likely cause is. I purchased a set of Aperion Verus Forte towers a whileback and was powering it with an older Sony Receiver, which was rated at 120Wx2 at 8 ohm 20-20KHZ. I was listening tomy music at a pretty loud level and I blew one tweeter on my speakers. The tweeter was replaced, and I upgraded to aPioneer Elite SC-07 Receiver rated at 150W x2 at 8ohm 20-20KHZ. An audioholics review confirmed the powersupply actually met these measurements and then a few months later I blew bothtweeters simultaneously, once again listening at a loud level. Both tweeters were replaced and I figured Iwas probably working the speakers too hard.
So I upgraded to the Grand Verus Towers andbought two Emotiva XPA-100’s putting out 250W and used the SC-07 for apre-amp. This setup worked flawlesslyfor a year but a few months ago I, while listening at a high volume again, Iblew both tweeters simultaneously again.
I starting to think that the VGT’s can’t handlethe volume of music I sometimes like to play them at, (or they have a tweeterdesign issue) but a google of VGT and tweeters doesn’t return much results soI’m thinking the tweeter design is fine. The speakers are rated for 300W, butsince they are 6 ohm, my amps should have been putting out more than 300W,(assuming they were maxed out) when the tweeters went. Normally, I would think that the ampsdistorted and killed the tweeters, which I would remedy with larger amps, but I’mnot sure if these speakers can handle much more power
Does anybody have any advice for me, this isstarting to become a drag, and the wife is second guessing the speakers I toldher would last us a decade.
