Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Speaker - SR8040BP
The SR-8040HD is built to the same high performance standards as Definitive’s
main left and right front speakers and includes features like high-definition
second generation patented BDSS bass/midrange drivers with butyl rubber surrounds,
wide-dispersion pure aluminum dome tweeters, complex crossover networks and
rock-solid cabinet construction. It can be mounted to a wall with the integrated
keyhole plate or placed on a shelf or stand. However you use the SR-8040BP you’ll
enjoy superior surround sound realism.
The Bipolar Advantage
Definitive’s SR-8040HD is a bipolar system containing two complete full-range
speaker systems, one on each side of the cabinet. Bipolar radiation spreads
the surround signals evenly throughout your room for a more enveloping sense
of you-are-there realism than could be achieved with conventional forward-firing
The SR-8040HD is a full-range, extremely linear, 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-8040HD wide dynamic range,
high-definition sound quality and its bipolar radiation pattern results in total
immersion in the musical event or movie soundstage.
Bipolar Surrounds are Easy to Use
Definitive's bipolar surrounds are designed for easy and unobtrusive placement
in your room. Easy-to-use mounting plates are included for wall mounting. Definitive's
BP surround speakers may be located on the sides or rear of the room (or both
as in 6.1 and 7.1 channel installations) with excellent results.
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 intend for 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-8040BP are 3-1/2" 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.
