    Purchased a pair of these with a center and denon 3300 receiver and wow. The sound is incredible and the built in subwoofers really set them apart.

    Great sound quality and bass with the integrated subwoofer, but even better when you pair it to the Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 Subwoofer. Great for music or movies.

    Bought these to replace my old BP7006 Def Tech towers as one of the built-in sub-woofers developed a slight hum after about 8 years of use. I found out from Def Tech after making this purchase that I could have easily repaired the speaker. @@@@@@@@ Their support is great! @@@@@@@ Having said that, I'm very happy with the purchase. Very warm and clear sound with lots of bass from the built-in subs. The gain is only set to about 50% on the subs paired with my Marantz amp. Compare for yourself vs other brands but these will not disappoint.

    Am using these speakers as primary hifi stereo speakers, but also as home theater speakers. As hifi speakers, they produce a nice defined soundstage, with clear placement of the primary instruments. In the home theater, the active base provides sufficient power that no additional subwoofer is needed. Good balance at a reasonable price.

    I will admit I purchased these on sale, but they are worth it. The built in subwoofer is amazing and I keep it at 75%. It vibrates like club speakers when appropriate yet there is no distortion even at high volume. Tremendous speakers able to handle a wide range of musical styles!

    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.

    So there are definitely better speakers out there, no question about that. But you would be hard pressed to find speakers that sound as good as these for this price. I was between these and CM10s (different price point) and I chose these. Not that CM10s sound the same because they do not but because they are more than twice the price I opted for these until I could save up a bit more. The subs could be a bit bigger but that's what the 9060s are for. I think in my room two 8 inch subs sound great. I'm running these in stereo off of a Denon X4200.

    I bought a pair of these to upgrade my existing fronts in my home theater system. What a HUGE difference they made. The 8" powered sub in each really fills out the lows across my entire front sound stage as it should be. They are not that big size wise, but they pack tremendous sound. I paired these with the 9060 center and a Pioneer Elite VSX-LX503 AV Reciever and I now have the front soundstage I have wanted. Def Tech recommends not using the auto sound setup of AV receivers on their towers and centers. I wiped all my settings and inputted the distance using a laser measuring tool and set the channel levels via a db meter. My system has never sounded as good, much less better.

    Ive been a big Bose brand for sometime. I enjoy good sound and it's been an obsession I've had for a while, I love the crisp detail in Bose audio and never trusted another brand to give me a similar experience. Walking into bestbuy last week looking for home theatre audio I met a sales rep from Magnolia. He showed me a few speakers way out of the budget I was looking to spent, I had no intention of getting any receivers either but let me tel you that the DT towers by far out my Bose surrround system to shame. The clarity is 10 times better it's a world of difference, and the 8" subs are really powerful for such size. I get an equal surround feel from these 2 single towers than a 4 speaker surround by Bose. And the power is greater, they are louder than I can handle even at 50%. Very impressed I think I found my new sound!

    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 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
