The CS-8080HD is a top of the line speaker in Definitive Technology's BP & Studio Monitor series of center channel speakers. The series starts with the CS-8040HD passive system which uses one 5" x 10" bass radiator, followed by the CS-8060HD with powered 8" subwoofer and 150 Watt dedicated amp. The CS-8080HD completes the line with two 5" x 10" bass radiators and one powered 5" x 10" subwoofer with 300 Watt dedicated amplifier. Aside from a more powerful amp and added bass drivers, this system also has larger front speakers which measure 5 1/4", compared to 4 1/2" found on the other two, while all models employ the same 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter mounted front and center. Enclosure design is standard throughout this line as well involving a thick layer of MDF low resonance wood composite material on the inside which provides audio damping and reduction of vibrations. Each speaker or bass driver has an added layer surrounding it and the midrange(front speakers) have been sealed in their own enclosure for further reduction of internal noise/vibration. The bass radiators and powered sub have also been pressure sealed together unlike the CS-8060HD which uses a ported, or 'vented' bass system. On the back of the unit can be found an AC power input, separate subwoofer input with LFE level adjustment dial and 5-way binding posts which accept bare wire, pins, single and dual banana plugs and spade connections. The recommended matching speakers for this model are the BP-8080ST SuperTower main speakers, which use the same midrange drivers and tweeters which is ideal for a matched home theater surround sound system.
