The Primus P153 produces sparkling high frequencies and detailed midrange from any type of music, at any volume level. And for a compact bookshelf speaker, the bass might just surprise you. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the lifelike vocal tracks, sophisticated percussion, and robust instruments that envelop and excite you.
High quality materials for long term performance
The Primus P153 features Infinity's exclusive Metal Matrix Diaphragm ("MMD" for short) driver technology in both the 3/4" tweeter and 5-1/4" woofer. These MMD drivers consist of a stiff aluminum core, anodized on both sides for increased strength and rigidity. The result is extremely fast, extremely accurate response, giving you distinctly cleaner, more realistic sound, even at higher volume levels.
Build your own Primus® system
The Infinity Primus P153 will fill just about any room with dramatic and well-defined sound. Pair it with Infinity's P363 floor-standing speaker and PC251 center channel speaker to create a stunning Primus home theater system. And don't forget to add the perfectly matched PS38 powered subwoofer to get deep, accurate bass in the mix.

Metal Matrix Diaphragm (M.M.D.): Derived from the C.M.M.D. material used in Infinity's flagship Cascade series, M.M.D. features a stiff aluminum core, anodized on both sides for increased strength and rigidity. M.M.D. transducers conduct sound faster than paper, polypropylene, and Kevlar, pushing unwanted resonances beyond the operating range of the transducer. M.M.D. drivers deliver crystal-clear, distortion-free sound from dynamic digital sources, even at high listening levels.
5-1/4" Woofer: The 5-1/4" M.M.D. cone woofer offers extremely accurate midrange response for cleaner, more realistic sound. For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses rubber surrounds.
3/4" Tweeter: The speaker has a 3/4" M.M.D. dome tweeter that offers superior stiffness and damping compared to traditional metal domes.
Acoustical Waveguide: The P153's tweeter utilizes an acoustical waveguide to deliver, more even high frequency response, no matter what part of the room you're in.
Precision Crossover Network: The speaker features a 2-way crossover system with crossover frequency at 3300Hz. The crossover has a 24dB/octave slope.
Voice-Matched: The P153 is voice-matched to all the speakers in the Primus line, so a complete matching system can be built.
Magnetically Shielded: The Infinity Primus bookshelf loudspeaker is magnetically shielded for safe placement adjacent to your television.
Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet: The Infinity P153 features a black wood grain vinyl cabinet that matches almost any decor.
Bass Reflex Design: The Infinity Primus bookshelf loudspeaker utilizes a bass reflex enclosure with a front-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.
Low Resonance Enclosure: The P153 employs a extremely low resonance enclosure, so you hear the music exactly as it was recorded.
Grille: The speaker comes with a removable black cloth grille with a rigid plastic frame.
5-Way Binding Posts: The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Rubber Feet: The speakers come with 4 rubber self-adhesive feet for each speaker to help secure them in place to prevent slippage and vibration.
Wall Mounting: The speaker has two keyhole slots in the upper left and right corners of the back panel. In addition, two non-skid rubber bumpers are attached in the lower corners so the speaker won't mar wall surfaces when the speaker is mounted. You can also use the optional PinPoint heavy duty side-grip wall-mounting bracket (121AM40B, sold separately) to wall mount the speakers.
