Product Information

High-Performance Tower Speaker with Integrated 12” Powered Subwoofer and Height Module

  • Powerful, Forward-Focused Bipolar speaker array for wide and immersive sound dispersion
  • Integrated 12” powered subwoofer and dual bass radiators
  • Intelligent Bass Control offers enhanced bass while maintaining overall tonal balance
  • Dolby Atmos / DTS:X integrated height speaker module for multi-dimensional sound
  • Iconic and visually powerful design features machined, aircraft-grade aluminum construction

  • (2) 1”aluminum dome tweeters for crystal clear highs
  • (3) 4.5"mid-range drivers with patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) technology
  • (1) 12” woofer and (2) 12” bass radiators

Patented Forward-Focused Bipolar Array (FFBP)

Forward Focused Bipolar Array offers the ultimate balance between room-filling sound and a precise center image, while giving you total placement flexibility.

Integrated 12” Powered Subwoofer and Dual Bass Radiators

The best loudspeaker is one that reproduces balance between the highest highs down to ground-shaking lows as accurately as possible. Definitive's integrated powered subwoofer matched with its respective bass radiator offers deeper, more impactful bass from the tower speaker without the need to add a separate subwoofer.

Intelligent Bass Control

Intelligent Bass Control™ is our latest advancement that gives you the ability to modulate deep bass up or down in level while simultaneously maintaining mid-range tonal balance.

Dolby Atmos Certified &DTS:X Compatible

Definitive has integrated a seamless two-way height speaker module within the top of the BP9080x so you can hear and feel multi-dimensional sound (requires a Dolby Atmos/DTS:X-enabled receiver and Dolby Atmos/DTS:X-encoded source material).

Aluminum Dome Tweeters

Crystal clear highs bring the most demanding audio to life. Definitive's tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.

BDSS – Balanced Double Surround System

Improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.

Acoustically Transparent Grille

Enjoy the subtle elegance of the speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille to enjoy natural, uncolored sound.

Totally Inert, Resonance-Free Cabinet

Maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing the clean and powerful sound.

Cast Aluminum Base with Spikes and Floor Glides

The wide footprint increases overall stability of the tower speaker, while the addition of spikes or floor glides help keep your speakers firmly in place whether on carpet or other solid floor surfaces like hardwood or cement.

Minimalist Design, Timeless Appeal

Powerful minimalist aesthetic with precision-machined components creates a sophisticated look to complement the most distinguished home theater. The sharp lines of the BP9000 Series also echo its precise sonic signature.

LED Backlit Definitive Technology Logo

To highlight the integrated powered subwoofer and show that your speaker is receiving a signal, Definitive has added an LED logo at its bottom front panel. Turn it on or off at your leisure and also note that it will automatically turn off/standby after 20 minutes of no active signal.

Out of this world sound
These Bad Boys thump. Big robust sound with monster bass, They sound amazing listening to 2 channel music or multi channel movies.. The soundstage is open, but focused. The bass is rich & well defined. They are very sleek looking & will blend into your theatre room décor.

Accurate and Fantastic
I had a little home theatre based upon the pro-monitor series which I was semi happy with but now I've moved into a much bigger space and the sound especially in stereo was not quite what I was looking for. I bought a pair of the BP9080x's and a CS9080 and now I'm very satisfied, but I am still thinking about adding a sub to up the punch in those low frequencies. The built in subs reproduce the low frequencies of recordings effectively, I just would like a bit more punch.

All this said, I'm seriously thinking about buying the Emotiva XPA-11 Gen 3 to power everything I currently have (fronts=BP9080x, Center=CS9080, the surround channels are pro-monitor 1000's which actually mate fairly well with the mains although a bit more focused as far as the soundstage)... When I look at everything it appears to be a match made in heaven as far as the power ratings go. I think that amp sits right in the wheelhouse for what I've currently got, but I'd love to hear a Definitive Technology rep's thought on it.
