The Definitive Technology BP-8020ST is a floorstanding speaker designed to work as stand-alone or as part of a surround sound system. This 150 watt base model is the lowest powered in the series, and is followed by the 300 watt Definitive Technology BP-8040ST with more power and an additional driver. Bipolar technology is used throughout the series to project sound both at the front and back, filling the room more evenly than traditional speakers. The combination of 3 separate 3-1/2 inch midrange drivers, an aluminum dome 1 inch tweeter, and an 8 inch active subwoofer work together to cover a wide enough frequency range for general use without the need of additional speakers. An 8 ohm impedance is also used to reduce signal interferrence for a clearer, undistorted sound. To save energy, the powered subwoofer can be set to only switch on when a signal is detected.
