Features


Dolby Atmos Certified and DTS:X Compatible

Seamlessly integrates within the top of the BP9060, BP9040 and BP9020 speakers so you can revel in greater sound height

Aluminum Dome Tweeter

Tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.

Sloped Speaker Baffle with Exclusive Foam Construction

Fires sound upwards, reflecting it off the ceiling and back down to your viewing area in a tightly controlled dispersion pattern, damping the sound that remains

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. The sharp lines of the BP9000 Series also echo its precise sonic signature.

    Not enough bang to be priced at $500

    I'm not sure if the other people who reviewed these speakers were just delighted at the fact that they now have something cool looking perched atop their existing towers adding a few inches of height, or whether they actually hear a difference. These do not sound anywhere near as good as dedicated in ceiling speakers. I have them paired with bp9020 and tried them with both denon, marantz and yamaha aventage receiver. Tried atmos and dts:x both native and dsp. The towers are already bipolar so it will give a feeling of space so adding these a90's will not have a dramatic effect. If you added the A90 to a traditional tower that wasn't bipolar then yes, you will hear a bit of a difference-but not $500 worth of a difference. I even pressed my ear against the speaker itself to see if the native dolby and dsp verison of it would really push any air but no, it was weak. Calibrating it using Audessey and YPAO as well as by hand also did not make much of a difference. These look fancy and add a bit of spacial imaging but nothing to blow anyones socks off and nothing to brag to your neighbors about when playing an atmos track because they are not going to really hear anything flying overhead. And yes I have low ceilings with acoustic treatment. At the end of the day you will hear what you "want" to hear, and I really wanted to hear something, but I heard.....nothing.....

    I purchased the 9060 towers, 9060 center, and the 9080 surrounds. Everything sounds amazing! I couldn't be happier, though I will say that I have a friend who has 8060s and his sounds almost the same as my setup...so if you can still find 8060s (they are half the price of the 9060s) and sound pretty similar. Aside from that...LOVE these. These Atmos speakers sit on top of the towers...and sound great. I will say that I've also heard Atmos ceiling speakers and I will say I like that better...but if you don't want to go through the hassle of installing ceiling speakers - these are the next best thing!

    These speakers are by far the icing on the cake for my BP 9040’s. I waited for the height speakers to arrive and thought that the towers were so good I would return the add on height speakers. But when they arrived I began testing them out, boy was I wrong, the height speakers add a depth and realism that complimented the bi-polar soundstage perfectly. They are an aesthetically pleasing accessory to the towers that are worth the money. I was also surprised that these small speakers were able to throw the sound in my room which has 12 feet ceilings in a large 20’ X 30’ room, but they perform well and I am very pleased with their performance.

    It’s all about the “system”

    I went in to the Magnolia showroom to listen to the BP9000 series and settled on the BP9040 series (which to my ear was most pleasing). I did A/B comparisons with and without the Dolby height speakers and was pleasantly surprised to the depth they added to overall listening experience. I have also added the larger center channel speaker, 2 rear channel speakers in addition to the towers with the height speakers (and an existing sub). Using for movies is unreal and the ability for great music reproduction is there too. It’s now an amazing system for sure.

    Out of the box, no tweaking and expecting some kind of magic.... you’re going to be disappointed. If you invested in these speakers, then I’m guessing you have a good to great amp pushing these beautiful towers. After some tweaking the A90’s made the room sound “full”, regardless if we were sitting or standing in the room. Music sounds better, movies with Atmos sound GREAT!! All in all, very pleased with this addition to an already great entertainment system!

    I have been looking for a way to get Atmos into my surround system. I bought a Definitive system knowing that I can stack the Atmos speaker on top. The floorspeakers come with a nice top brushed aluminum plate that can be removed and the Atmos Speaker slides right into the top. And if you do not use the Atmos speakers you can just set the metal plate right on top. This way you get no dust in the top.

    Forgot that we added these to the top of the towers. What a difference they make. Find a Best Buy with a Magnolia Design Center. You will not be disappointed, they have the staff and products to make your home as good or better than a theater.

    Love it. More fun to watch movies. If you’re spending speakers and you don’t put height speakers modules then something wrong with you. Definitive Technology brand speakers are all time great. Gotta love it. Sounds are really great, just like you are watching movie in movie theater.
