    In 2015 I wanted an affordable great sounding Home Theater system, did lots of research and chose a Def Tech Pro Cinema 600 speaker system and a Yamaha RXA 1050 Receiver. I thought I was in heaven and my family and friends were very impressed at how large and clean everything sounded for nearly being invisible in the modest 14'x18' Living room. I thought I was set and done! I'm also a sucker for stopping in the Best Buy "sound room" to listen to all the cool expensive speakers... last year thats when it really started! I walked out of the store with a new set of Def Tech BP 9040 Towers, then a month later, I got a CS 9040 Center speaker, then a month later, a pair of SR 9040 Surrounds. I thought I was complete and done... NOT! A couple months later I ordered the A 90 Atmos tower topper speakers. (Don't get me wrong, the Pro Cinema 600 system is a fine sounding set of speakers for their size, they easily shook the room and I loved them.) After about a total tweaking time of 2 hours cumulative with the receiver, this new 9040 speaker system is phenomenal as far as I'm concerned. I've been to many AMC, Harkins and other theaters.... My living room sounds just as good... anyone that has heard my little theater will agree... they are always wanting to know when they can come back and watch another movie. If you are looking for an awesome moderately priced home theater speaker system, Give these Def Techs a listen... You'll probably do what I did, I love mine!

    I am a bit biased as I have the Pro Cinema 600 in my guest room for gaming and movies, the Pro Cinema 1000 in the master for movies and the AW 6500 outdoor speakers for music. The BP9040’s are my first pair of Bi-Polar and first pair of towers, they have overachieved in all areas! The room filling bi polar soundstage is a must for theater experience(friends and family alike prefer my house to the theater), and I coupled them with the atmos speakers, never going back to satellites alone! The clarity and punch of these towers is exciting, I can’t wait to listen to movies and music alike as the experience with the BP’s is like going from DVD to Blu-ray, there is no comparison. These are efficient speakers but I would reccomend throwing some real power at them to experience their full capabilities. I started with 100 watts from a Yamaha receiver which sounded good, but I upgraded to a high end Marantz amp which Tom the system over the top. The integrated subs go deeper than I thought, low enough to shake your nose yet adjustable if you do not want to wake the Neighbor’s. Worth every penny, next time I am going got the BP9080’s.

    I purchased a pair of these Definitives after making a 100 mile trip to our nearest Best Buy with a Magnolia sound room. My wife and I listened to B&W, Klipsch, Pioneer Elite Series, and others before making the decision to purchase these. No other speaker, at this price point, can compare to the full, detailed sound that these deliver. I am hearing subtle details that I have never heard before, in music that I've listened to all my life. One thing I would recommend, if you purchase a pair of these, and stream your music, is to move to a music service like Tidal (which provides true high fidelity music). I noticed very quickly that the high quality of these 9040's really made the compressed MP3 format of Apple Music glaringly apparent.

    I was shopping for new subwoofer and came across these BP9040 speakers. Built in 8" subwoofers. You are able to adjust the amount of bass you like. Movies and music sound awesome. Still surprised how great they sound, paired with CS9040. The mids are incredibly clear, with the right amount of bass. Solving my subwoofer problem. Ended up being a great time to upgrade my L/C/R speakers.Thunderous and clear sounding. You can feel the bass through your chest.. 7.2 setup with Denon X2200 pushing them. I can always later add A90 atmos speakers later as well.- Mensrea69

    I was leaning towards Klipsch due to the cost, and the room my theatre room will be in is not that large, however, after hearing these, I decided to leap. Wow, they will not disappoint. I don't have it all entirely set up, I am doing a full theatre room, but adding on the Dolby Atmos speakers to the top, as well as how clean and powerful these speakers are, you will be amazed. I paid the extra money to make the jump, and I am happy I did. I am sure I will have these for many years to come, and I am happy with my purchase. On a side note, one of my tower speakers is making a buzzing noise on the subwoofer, and I am exchanging them today.

    I researched these speakers because I wanted to replace my existing home theater with something that supported Dolby Atmos. The demos at Best Buy did not go well with various receiver and playback issues however I decided to purchase them and give them a try. Best Buy shipped them directly to my house via Fed Ex and they were well packaged and in perfect shape on arrival even though they were quite heavy. Once I got them installed and operational I tested them with various sources and was very pleased with the results. My biggest fear that these speakers would be bass heavy were not realized. They have great high and mid ranges and because the speakers have individual bass control in the rear you can pick how much bass you like. So I am very pleased with the results thus far.

    I did little to no research before I made my purchase and very happy with the towers, they have exceeded my expectations. They look amazing and clean without having sub boxes to hide.The next few day I did a fair amount of research. I have a really large living room opened to a large dining and kitchen, hard wood floors and tall ceilings and it doesn't where i am and the area is filled with quality sound and plenty of it. The only thing better without going to the big leagues is the next size up.I am sure there are cleaner tighter speakers out there. Having Kevlar components in my car with the most powerful JL audio digital amp you can buy and 2 10w3 in the back- I am still impressed when i get home.

    High end speakers

    Great all encompassing speakers for a high end system with no sub required. These won't over power you with bass but they are almost hard to believe when you 1st discover they were not paired with a sub. They sound full with crisp, perfect highs. If one desires more bass, they still are perfect to pair with a sub as opposed to a more pricey B&W with a sub. I preferred these to the equivalent B&W with a sub in other words especially noting the cost difference. Excellent aesthetics, size and overall quality.
