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. It’s no place to compromise and settle for second best. Recognizing the center speaker’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.

 

  • newegg Built-in Powered Subwoofers Make a Dramatic Audible Difference The CS-8080HD features a 5 x 10-inch racetrack subwoofer driver powered by a 300 Watt digital amplifier. The active driver is pressure coupled to two racetrack shaped low bass radiators for a total bass radiating area greater than a 12-inch round woofer. You’ll enjoy a truly full dynamic range and full frequency center channel that actually outperforms many floor-standing main speakers. With the CS-8080HD you will fully realize the performance potential of the center channel program material as the movie director intended it to be heard. Its upward-firing woofer system only requires 1" (25mm) of clearance, so it works perfectly whether you mount it in free-air or put it in a cabinet.
  • newegg Powerful Digital Amplifier The subwoofer is powered by a brawny 300 Watt Class D amplifier - which features an integrated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) – in essence a mini computer – that equalizes the woofer system to extend and smooth the bass response, provides a phase coherent crossover network to perfectly blend the subwoofer system with the midrange array for seamless high performance. Digital protection systems tightly monitor and control the woofer system to prevent bad noises and woofer damage at ultra-high volume levels. The bottom line is the CS-8080HD’s outperforms any similarly sized center speaker by a wide margin.
  • newegg Proprietary Technology Delivers High Definition and Wide Dispersion The CS-8080HD features a D’Appolito array consisting of two cast-basket 5-1/4" (13cm) second generation BDSS midrange drivers surrounding a 1" annealed Pure Aluminum dome tweeter. The drivers feature Definitive’s 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 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. The 1” (25mm) tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, 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.
  • newegg Non-Resonant, Low-Diffraction Cabinet Maintains Sonic Purity Definitive devoted as much Design and Engineering attention to the styling and construction of the 8080’s enclosure as any other part of its design. The tapered front of enclosure serves to make it appear slimmer while also enhancing sound quality by minimizing cabinet diffraction distortion. But the enclosure’s most important job is to be totally inert and resonance free so as not to color the sound. Wherever a driver or low bass radiator is attached to the cabinet a second layer of heavy MDF (a low resonance wood composite) is placed 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.
