The SR-8040BP 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 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 it can be placed atop a shelf or after-market stand. However you use the SR-8040BP you’ll enjoy superior surround sound realism.
The Bipolar Advantage Definitive’s SR-8040BP 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 speakers. The SR-8040BP 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-8040BP 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.
Proprietary Technology Delivers High Definition and Wide Dispersion The SR models with the latest generation drivers set new standards for wide dispersion and clean, accurate reproduction. The drivers are 3-1/2" second generation BDSS drivers. BDSS is Definitive’s proprietary 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 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.
This review is from: Definitive Technology Bipolar SR-8040BP Surround Loudspeaker Single
Pros: Attractive,and sound great,I have these mounted 4ft behind and 6ft (side walls) above my recliners,The couch is on the back wall about 2ft behind the SR-8040 BP'S,Powered by a RX-V375,with BP8B'S and CS8040HD,and I am quite pleased,I also have a YST-SW 216 and for 5.1 it is impressive,
Cons: A bit expensive,especially the center,
Other Thoughts: Understand these cabinets have small drivers,small drivers with great sound for size,and are plenty enough for a small to mid size home theater, If music is your thing then I would recommend larger drivers,
