Features


Integrated 8" bass radiator

The integrated bass radiator offers deeper, more impactful bass from the center channel speaker.

Aluminum Dome Tweeters

Creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.

Balanced Double Surround System

Improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.

Acoustically Transparent Grille

Enjoy the subtle elegance of the speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille to enjoy natural, uncolored sound.

Resonance-Free Cabinet

Maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing our clean and powerful sound.

Timeless Appeal

Powerful minimalist aesthetic with precision-machined components creates a sophisticated look to complement the most distinguished home theater.

    So I was really lucky that my Sony center channel speaker failed as I was able to stumble across this center channel speaker. It truely changed how we watch/listened to TV. Our theater room size is approx 40' x 15' and we have a 7.1 Pioneer Elite receiver head-unit. I was about ditch the center speaker for a ($800) passive sound bar however, the "on the floor" sales guy in the Signal Hill Magnolia Room really knew his stuff and convinced me to reconsider. The highs, mids and lows from this center channel are crisp and clear. The bass radiator compliments the sub-woofer nicely and vocals are brought to the forefront much more than before. Distant vocals-say someone talking in a movie from down a hall, at a distant, or background dialog are much more audible. We were able to achieve a more realistic theater audio sound simply by adding this center channel. The only con is the unique size-It is larger than most receivers-but I'm still giving it 5 stars as I am really impressed.

    I have the Def Tech 9040 towers, power cube sub woofer, rear surrounds and atmos height speakers, so it also made sense to also add this matching center channel speaker. In choosing speakers for Home Theater, (to my ear) it's best when the timbre of all the speakers match and such is the case here. The clarity and detail of this center channel speaker is at the highest level and very difficult to improve upon when paired with other matching Def Tech speakers. In the world of audio equipment, it's really more about personal preference than anything else, and most audiophiles and sound buffs will have very strong opinions about what they feel offers the best experience. In that vein, to my ear Def Tech speakers are about as good as it gets for Home Theater!

    After listening to the new Definitive Technology D7 bookshelf speakers I was amazed at the quality of sound from small speakers. But then when I added the Def Tech center speaker I was even more amazed at the clarity, purity and depth of sound for movies and for enjoying classical music. Even without a sub the bass is very satisfying. For a smaller room these speakers along with a quality receiver are all you need for high performance sound at reasonable prices. Later I plan to add two more rear speakers for surround sound. Thanks to the Magnolia guys at Best Buy for providing great advice.

    I wasn't planning on a center channel but when you realize just how much it adds to the sound dimension for home theater experience, it is really a must and this is a high end for those systems. I've been using sound bars (and high end ones, at that) for years but having the separate components (though costly) is an incredible auditory upgrade and this speaker plays a big part. Be ready, this is a large component but boy does it do a great job. Couldn't be happier.

    This center channel speaker without the powered subwoofer is a great match to my front Definitive towers (with powered subwoofers) and rear 6 1/2 inch Definitive in ceiling speakers. Voice projection and clarity greatly improved over my older Definitive Pro 1000. High quality enclosure. I did cover the silver accent bands on the front with black tape to make the speaker all black and not visible or distracting to the eye when watching TV at night. Otherwise great design and as expected the usual high quality from Definitive. Excellent service from Best Buy.

    Bought this speaker to replace a 4yr old Polk C10. This speaker is fantastic. Makes dialog crystal clear. The added bass from the passive woofer on top gives plenty of punch. I'm most certainly a Definative Technology speaker lover from now on. I compared this to a comparable Bowers & Wilkins center at BB Magnolia. I preferred this one because of its bass extention. Although priced higher, I believe it's worth every penny. Next to replace my tower's with some Def Tech super towers.

    I am really picky about center channel speakers. I can never hear speech clearly with other products I’ve purchased and I’ve been disappointed. Fear not!!! I am extremely happy with this center channel speaker. I have a table under my Sony 75inch TV that I have placed my center channel speaker on. Theater chairs about 10-12 feet away. Clarity with speech is incredible!! Would highly recommend!
