won't give you big bass explosions from movies, needs the support of a subwoofer

larger footprint than the average center, need to leave some space for it

The CS-8060HD is the middle entry in Definitive Technology's BP & Studio Monitor series of home theater center channel speakers and is matched in both acoustic design and components by their BP-8060ST and BP-8040ST SuperTower main speakers. Unlike the entry level CS-8040HD which is a passive system with 5" x 10" bass radiator on top, this features an 8" subwoofer on top that is vented by a wide cross-sectional area bass port and powered by a built-in 150 Watt class D amplifier. The cabinet is constructed with heavy layers of MDF low resonance wood composite and there are double walls between the speaker compartments to ensure a totally sonically 'dead' inner space devoid of acoustic refraction and vibration(see pictures at right). On the rear panel is located the bass port opening, AC power input, 5-way binding posts for connecting speaker wire, separate low-level woofer input and a dial to adjust the subwoofer level. All center channels in the series share the same outer cabinet design with matte black cloth grille covers and high gloss polymer paneling, and both the 1" Pure Aluminum dome tweeters and BDSS high-definition drivers on front are identical to the ones found in the recommended tower side channel speakers as mentioned above. For more power and extended bass performance there is also the top of the line CS-8080HD which uses two 5" x 10" bass radiators and a powered 5" x 10" subwoofer with it's own 300 Watt amp in a sealed enclosure.
