Product Details

SR8080BP - Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Sound Bookshelf Speakers

The SR-8080HD is built to the same high construction and performance standards as Definitive’s left and right front speakers and includes features like high-definition second generation BDSS bass/midrange drivers, wide-dispersion pure aluminum dome tweeters, complex Linkwitz-Riley crossover networks and solid cabinets. It can be mounted to a wall with the supplied plate or placed on a shelf or stand for the ultimate in surround sound realism.

The Bipolar Advantage
Definitive's SR-8080HD is a true bipolar system containing two complete full-range speaker systems, one on each side of the cabinet. Bipolar technology is superior for surround speakers because it combines the performance advantages of direct radiating (imaging, focus, localization, and specificity) and dipolar speakers (spacious, all-enveloping ambience) into one ideal system which is perfect for all multi-channel formats. The SR-8080HD is a full-range, low-distortion system which is timbre-matched to blend perfectly with all Definitive BP series speakers as well as other high-quality speaker systems. The SR-8080HD tremendous dynamic range as well as true high-definition sound quality combined with its bipolar radiation pattern results in total immersion in the sound field.

Patented Technology Delivers High Definition and Wide Dispersion
Dispersing the surround channel sound evenly over a broad area of the room is vital for creating the enveloping you’re-in-the-action experience movie directors intended you to experience. We’ve engineered the SR models with our latest generation ultra-high definition midrange drivers that set new standards for wide dispersion and clean, accurate reproduction.

The drivers used in the SR-8080BP are 4-1/2" second generation BDSS drivers. BDSS is Definitive’s patented Balanced Double Surround System technology that supports the speaker cone at both the inner and outer edges allowing longer, more linear excursion for greater clarity and finely textured inner detail. A new patent pending Linear Response Waveguide™ smoothes off-axis frequency response and disperses sound over a wider area for crystal clear intelligibility and life-like envelopment for every listener in the room. The tweeters are pure aluminum domes, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.

The Proof is in the Listening
Now that you’re thoroughly impressed with the technology and passion we’ve poured into the SR-8080BP it is time to find a stocking dealer near you to audition this remarkable achievement of art and science.

      Comments about Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Sound Bookshelf Speakers:

      I have 2 pairs of Def Tech BP-8080SR. These speakers are amazing, they do what every bipolar surround sound speaker should do, they "disappear" making them impossible to pin point their location. Definitive Technology has received excellent reviews on their Bipolar Series speakers, what makes them so special is their natural but powerful sound. Yes these babies are small but they do play loud and clean. They bring a lot of impact to my BD collection, I highly recommend them for anyone looking for some truly surround sound madness.

        Comments about Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Sound Bookshelf Speakers:

        The Definitive Technology SR-8080BP's sounded awesome right out the box.I upgraded from the SR8040BP's and Wow. The bass was more defined & the rear sound stage opened up.I really dig the Bipolar design. I'm a big Definitive Technology fan. Their customer service is the bomb. When setting up my theater room I had some technical questions and they were more than willing to help. If you want superb sound coming from the rear I strongly recommend the SR-8080Bp's.

          Comments about Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Sound Bookshelf Speakers:

          I replaced older towers used as surrounds with these bipolar surrounds. The soundstage and tonal matching are much better now. These speakers sound wonderful with movies, multi-channel SACD's and DVD-Audio and music in general. They are also small enough to not overpower the room any more than I already have with towers up front.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was as promised.
          Product was well packed.
          Product was in perfect condition.
