    Bought these without hearing them, love them!

    I needed to upgrade my surrounds from some older Bose speakers that were OK, but just were not up to producing full-range surround sound. They could handle louder effects, but ambient sound, crowd noises, and other surround activity wasn't quite what it should be. My room configuration is a bit off center, so I really liked that these speakers fire in two directions. Right out of the box they felt heavy (in a good way) and substantial. They also look really good and while they aren't tiny, they are unobtrusive and fit in nicely. But the sound is what speakers are all about, and the Def Techs handle everything that even a very surround-intense soundtrack (or multi-channel SACD) can throw at them. I'm hearing sounds I never heard before, and they are a good match with my Paradigm Monitor front and center channel speakers. You can buy surround speakers for less, and you can also pay a lot more. I had never really thought that the quality of the surrounds was all that important, but I was wrong, They are very important, and it's worth it to get decent ones. These are fairly priced for what you get and I am very happy with them.

    I’ve had these speakers for a month now and one thing I have noticed is they are not loud or overpowering but fill in the surround nicely like they are not there. My old set of surrounds were cheap and you could here them like you had a speaker beside you in a bad way. These fill in the sound seemlessly if that makes sense. The sound is natural and now when walking around and playing music you do not need to be sitting the couch to hear quality surround.thought I would like them being louder but I love the way they are. The sound is amazing like you are in the scene not just hearing it. Would highly recommend these speakers!

    If you have been reading my other reviews this will be no different. The system that I had purchased includes these speakers and wouldn't have been the same without them. Great sound, small and good looking just like the rest of the Definitive speakers in my theater room. It's like being in the middle of the action in any movie.

    Replaced my Boston Acoustic speakers with a modern pair of surrounds knowing there’d be a difference; major, ear opening and mind blowing. Sound seems to fill the entire back of the room from all directions. Scary movies scare me now :/

    Highly recommend them. I wasn't sure whether to get these or the 9080's but these put out quite a bit of sound.....expecially if your playing a dolby atmos bluray. I like all of my equiptment to be of the same type so these round out the system. I'm very happy with them and can't give them anything but 5 stars.

    Must have for your theater room or surround sound system. I paired these with two floors, Atmos uppers, and a matching center...it's unreal. Have Geek Squad install it, so they can tune it. It makes all the difference!

    I use 6 of these speakers for surround and height speakers, and the sound quality is excellent. They are paired with DT 9020 towers and 9040 center channel and Denon 6400 amp. The surround speakers are crisp and clean and are better than I expected! Highly recommend!

    Bought these with towers and a center channel from Definitive, expecting them to make a big difference in our listening experience. The result is better than we hoped. You get what you pay for (at least we feel like we did).

    These Definitive Technology rear surround speakers compliment my DefTech towers and center speaker perfectly! The sound is great and not overpowering in my somewhat small room. I couldn't be happier, as now I can use my DefTech 1000's for the side speakers in my 7.2 system.

    It has been a long time since I have upgraded my system speakers. Had Bose, they never really gave me the sound I wanted. I needed a multi use speaker. TV for the family, music for me.

    I bought these two speakers to add "back" speakers to make a 7:1 system in my home theater room. They sound great and add the final touch to my sound system.

    I have a lot of Definitive Technologies speakers and they are durable. I like to louder than most and few speakers stand up to the abuse I give them.

    Bought these for my theater room and they work amazing as center side speakers for 7.1. Not that heavy and easy to hang. Very happy with the purchase.

    Very pleased with purchase and sound. Great match for my Definitive Technology BP9040 and CS9040 speakers. Great sound even in challenging locations. Only knock is that I believe they are somewhat overpriced.

    To complement my Def Tech bipolar speakers, I decided to make my 5.1 system all Def Tech. These are matched perfectly with the tower speakers. I also set them up using the Rocket Fish wireless surround kit. Very pleased!!

    We've only had this speaker for less than a month so jury is still out. One of us doesn't hear surround as much as the other, but the one that doesn't doesn't watch as many movies as the other person.

    I was very excited about the speaker package i got... also had Geek Squad install. Fresno needs to get a studio room to test these out prior to install. I had to drive to Modesto just to hear them.

    I moved and needed to replace my in wall speakers my old home had. These are amazing. The bipolar speakers really fill the room. Very happy with them and they look great on the wall.

    I have these as my rear speakers. They are full and throw a lot of sound. I only wish they have different mounting options.
