Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    Optimum surround sound home theater reproduction places heavy demands on the center channel speaker, which in many respects is the main speaker in the system and often handles 50% or more of the program material. Ita??s no place to compromise and settle for second best. Recognizing the center speakera??s vital role Definitive pioneered the concept of full frequency range high-definition center-channel speakers.

    All Definitive CS series center channel models are designed with the same rigid standards and high performance goals as main left and right front speakers and feature wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation.

    CS–8060HD

    The CS–8060's driver array

    The CS–8060HD features a D'Appolito array consisting of two cast–basket 4–1/2" (11cm) second generation BDSS midrange drivers surrounding a 1" annealed Pure Aluminum dome tweeter housed in an acoustically isolated sealed enclosure. These are the same drivers and tweeters used in the BP–8060ST bipolar SuperTower loudspeakers, making the CS–8060HD the perfect center channel match. The drivers feature Definitive's patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) 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 for every listener in the room.

    Built–in Powered Subwoofers Make a Dramatic Audible Difference

    Most audio experts agree that the ideal surround speaker system would have 5 identical truly full range speakers at every position. But most rooms and setups can't accommodate 5 identical large speakers. So we engineered the next best thing – a truly full range center speaker that fits on a shelf.

    The CS–8060HD features an 8–inch subwoofer driver vented via a wide cross–sectional area bass port. A 150 Watt amplifier powers and tightly monitors and controls the woofer system to prevent distortion and woofer damage at high volume levels. The bottom line is the CS–8060HD's outperforms any similarly sized and priced center speaker by a wide margin.

    Patented Technology Delivers High Definition and Wide Dispersion

    The "HD" in the name of this speaker stands for High Dispersion. Dispersing the center channel sound evenly over a broad area of the room is vital if all listeners in the room (even those sitting well off–axis) are to hear clear, concise and highly intelligible dialog. We've engineered the CS models with our latest generation ultra–high definition midrange drivers that set new standards for wide dispersion.

    The CS–8060HD's enclosure is solidly built

    But the enclosure's most important job is to be totally inert and resonance free so as not to color the sound. And that's just we accomplished in the CS enclosures. Wherever a driver or low bass radiator is attached to the cabinet we placed a second layer of heavy MDF (a low resonance wood composite) to prevent the moving drivers from imparting vibration to the rest of the enclosure. The sealed midrange enclosure also serves to provide bracing for the enclosure walls to further stiffen the system. Tap on the top of a CS enclosure to hear the solid "thud" of a stiff, well–damped cabinet instead of the hollow ring of poorly constructed speakers. NOTE: the high gloss polymer composite end–caps are decorative elements; they are not part of the acoustical system.

    The Proof is in the Listening

    This extraordinary speaker sets a new reference standard for center speakers in its price and size class and achieves equally superb performance with both music and movies. The BP–8060ST reproduces a silky smooth, incredibly detailed music, dialog and sound effects at lifelike volume levels with a sense of ease which is truly remarkable.
