The Definitive Technology SR-8040BP is an entry level bipolar surround speaker typically used in home theater systems at the back of the room in each corner. It can be purchased as a pair or in combination with Definitive Technology's matching center and front channel speakers for a 5.1 channel setup. In these systems it is important that all of the speakers are matched in timbre and sonic signature, therefore they have been equipped with the same second generation BDSS or 'Balanced Double Surround System' midrange/bass drivers and 1" pure aluminum tweeters. Bipolar means there are two speaker systems built-in, with one on either side, and using the included keyhole plate may be mounted on a wall rather than placed on a table or stand. Stepping up from these is the SR-8080BP which has the same general design and 1" aluminum dome tweeters but with a taller frame and larger 4 1/2" BDSS drivers. Definitive Technology has conveniently grouped their 'BP & Studio Monitor' line into three home theater systems consisting of three sizes of tower speakers and center channels, and two sizes of bipolar surrounds as mentioned here.
