The CS-8040HD is an entry level center channel speaker in the 'BP & Studio Monitor' series designed for use in home theater and is optimally matched to Definitive Technology's BP-8040ST and BP-8020ST SuperTower main speakers. The CS-8040HD may be placed on a shelf typically above or below the television and it features a 5" x 10" Low-Bass Radiator on top that is pressure coupled with the dual 4 1/2" drivers on front, resulting in a bass extension that belies the size of the unit. Directly mounted in the front center is a 1" annealed Pure Aluminum dome tweeter which is identical to the one found in the matching BP-8040ST tower speaker, while all of the components are enclosed in an acoustically isolated sealed chamber layered with heavy MDF, a low resonance wood composite. Those who are looking for even more bass in a center channel might look at the next in the series called the CS-8060HD which has a powered 8" subwoofer on top, or the CS-8080HD which is also powered and has three bass drivers on top. 5-way binding posts make for compatibility with all types of speaker wire, while the high gloss polymer composite end caps add an aesthetic touch to the matte black grille cloth covering.
