Our take on the Sonus Faber Venere Wall by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Compact, versatile, and beautiful
Sonus faber Venere Wall in genuine walnut wood finish.
The Sonus faber Venere Wall is one versatile speaker. Mount a pair on your wall to create a powerful, compact stereo sound system. Use one as your home theater's center channel speaker with a wall mounted TV, or multiple pairs for enveloping surround sound applications. It works beautifully with the voice-matched Sonus faber Venere bookshelf and floor-standing speakers for crisp, clear movie dialogue and gripping sound effects. You could even place three of them across your home theater's front soundstage to enjoy engaging sound while conserving valuable floor space. Sonus faber includes all the hardware you need to mount this attractive speaker vertically or horizontally on your wall. No matter how you use it, you can count on clear, detailed sound.
Exceptional clarity and definition
The Venere Wall's 1-1/8" smooth-sounding silk dome tweeter adds sparkle and detail without a trace of harshness. Its 6" poly textile midwoofer is enhanced with a 6" passive radiator to serve up distinct vocals with real natural presence and strong, highly defined bass.
The Venere Wall's hinged mounting bracket lets you mount the speaker vertically or horizontally, and aim it toward your ears for clearer sound.
Better cabinets for better sound
Sonus faber builds each Venere Wall enclosure with non-parallel internal sides to reduce distortion caused by internal standing waves. The front baffle features waveguides around each driver to help the speaker produce a more coherent and "live" presentation. The cabinets are then completed with premium, high-gloss black or white finishes, or a real wood veneer, for a stylish, modern appearance. Sonus tops off each speaker with an attractive magnetically attached grille to give the Wall a clean, streamlined look.

Two-Way Speaker Design: The Sonus faber Venere Wall loudspeaker utilizes a two-way design with custom-built drivers by the best international manufacturers for natural, well-balanced, non-fatiguing sound.

Cabinet Design: The Venere Wall speaker feature a CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) gloss-lacquer-coated MDF cabinet that is rigid and beautiful. Unlike other speaker manufactures that want to mask the sound of the cabinet, Sonus faber designs it speaker cabinets so they work in synergy with the drivers and perfectly complement one another for a perfect sound.
- Lyre Inspired: The speaker cabinet's shape is inspired by the Lyre string instrument to ensure the absence of parallel internal surfaces to control air movement inside the cabinet and create sound that is dynamic, clean, rich in detail, and natural. The Lyre inspired cabinet guarantees exceptional control of internal resonance, perfect acoustics, excellent driver stability, and room-friendly placement.

Why did you buy this?
I already have other speakers from the product line. I needed a center channel, but the sonus venere center channel doesn't allow me to mount on the wall. [ Jeremy Sep 04, 2017 ]
