Product Details

SR8080BP - Definitive Technology Bipolar Surround Sound Bookshelf Speaker (Sold As Each)

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.
