Features


Integrated 8" Powered Subwoofer

The integrated powered subwoofer offers deeper, more impactful bass from the center channel speaker without the need to add a separate subwoofer.

Intelligent Bass Control

Intelligent Bass Control is our latest advancement that gives you the ability to modulate deep bass up or down in level while simultaneously maintaining mid-range tonal balance.

Aluminum Dome Tweeters

Crystal clear highs bring the most demanding audio to life.

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.

Minimalist Design

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.

LED Backlit Definitive Technology Logo

To highlight the integrated powered subwoofer and show that your speaker is receiving a signal, we’ve added an LED logo at its bottom front panel.

    Didn't realize how big a gap my center channel was until I bought this. Worth stepping up a model for the powered woofer. Fuller sound than I imagined possible from my home system. Paired these with 9040 towers and 9080 surrounds and a supercube for a great setup that complement each other. Amazed at how much I had to reduce levels on my receiver due to the big increase in output over my old setup. If you want a center that can give you good performance and dialogue you can actually hear this is it. Takes a fair amount of space, but looks great on my console with the 78 curved tv above it.

    I wanted to replace my home theater speakers and chose the Def Tech BP series. This center speaker is very clear and because it has a sub woofer built in it adds some additional low frequency response separate of the main sub. I think most center speakers lack that lower mid range and this speaker has it covered. It nicely matches the BP9060s for tonal balance and I highly recommend getting this center if you are planning on buying the towers.

    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.

    I was going to purchase a smaller center channel speaker when I purchased my DT towers. However, as part of a holiday sale, this center channel speaker was included with the purchase of two speaker towers. I am very happy the center channel speaker was on sale but also because it delivers exceptional audio. It is a win - win for me.

    I own center channel with two 9060 tower speakers. The plan is to eventually add rear speakers to make it 5.1. already the music is very satisfactory in its quality. It's obviously better than bose soundtouch 130 in my living room which is no surprise, but is also better than burmeister speakers of my car.

    I can't think of another word to describe this baby which is not, AMAZING . For most people they don't even need a sub woofer if they have this SC speaker , it has an amazing sound and the base is incredible. If you're really serious about home theater speakers, and you don't care about it size, this is it ,

    This is a replacement center speaker for my existing Definitive sound system. The voices are clean and the balance with the other speakers are very good. I had some issues with the powered sub and never really got it resolved, so that's why it's 4 stars and not 5.

    Completes the 9060 set of front speakers and sounds awesome. The speaker is designed to provide the correct timbre. It does so perfectly. Also opens up more home theatre sound options on my pioneer receiver. Don’t hesitate to add to your system.
