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
