  You know what kind of sound you want: full, rich sound that transports you directly into the movie, or brings you front and center to your favorite performance. Definitive Technology’s BP80820ST uses it’s forward firing bi-polar speaker array to make sure that sound you get is not just direct, but also full by allowing sound fired from the rear of the speaker to bounce back to you. A built-in 8” 150W subwoofer makes sure that the sound has dynamic, easy to set up bass. A 1 sq. ft. footprint means that you don’t have to worry about space being an obstacle to great floorstanding sound

More interesting than it seems

Sound should never feel flat, or boring. When you're watching a car chase and the third car in the line just exploded after trying to drive on two wheels to pass between two tanker trucks filled with gasoline, it shouldn't have the same feeling as a lecture on the economics of hummus export. You should be able to feel the explosion, and know exactly where it came from! Definitive Technology's forward focus bi-polar arrays give you a one two punch of sound to make sure that you get a three-dimensional feel to your sound. The first wave fires directly towards you, allowing you to experience the clarity and direction of your audio, while the second relies on reflection from the rear facing drivers, giving you a feeling of depth and tone by utilizing precisely timed speaker reaction. This combination allows for a more realistic sound field than speakers that just fire forward.

D'arrangement is d'key

Bi-polar arrays aren't the only thing giving you clarity of sound with the Definitive Technology BP8020ST. The front facing speakers are arranged with a tweeter sandwiched between two midranges, in a configuration called a D'Appolito array. The midranges use Definitive Technologies' patented balanced double surround system (BDSS), while the tweeters are ceramic-coated aluminum domes. So what does all this technical stuff mean to you? More accurate, wide-bandwidth, ear-pleasing sound. The BP8020ST is able to produce an accurate, wide-range of sound using the BDSS midranges, while the D'Appolito array lets it roll with quick frequency changes without causing distortion to the sound coming from the speaker. Meanwhile, the tweeters give you an expanded range of available highs without sounding tinny or sharp to the ear. We think that great sounding, dynamic audio is an arrangement anyone can live with.

All your bass

Good bass is hard to find — getting your subwoofer positioned correctly, then tuned correctly, and getting it to fully match with your speakers can be challenging — is it too much? Is it too little? The Definitive Technology BP8020ST gives you an 8" 150W subwoofer built into your tower speakers, giving you not just a single subwoofer, but a pair of them, working in tandem to give you much more complete, emotional bass sound.

Where do we go from here?

Floorstanding speakers sound great, but where will you put them? They're just too big and bulky for your . . . hold up. We’ve heard these arguments before, and space shouldn’t become the barrier that keeps you from great audio. Definitive technology isn't dense to these arguments, so they've made sure the materials they use promote a neutral and resonance free cabinet, while still giving you a speaker that fits in a 1 square foot area. Using medium-density fiberboard for the main cabinet, as well as a second layer around every driver enclosure that's attached to the cabinet, the BP8020ST is able to produce sound without coloring it, while still keeping a stylish, slim look that works in any situation.

A sound connection

It's a cruel fact, most speakers don’t come with their own wire, and those that do usually don't come with wire worth its salt. When you’re looking at a high quality speaker like this, you want to make sure that you’re getting speaker wire that's going to complement the incredible sound you're looking forward to hearing.
