High Dispersion center channel loudspeaker with built in powered subwoofer View larger View larger View larger Like all Definitive Technology center channel speakers, the CS-8060HD is designed with the same rigid standards and high performance goals as main left and right front speakers, and feature wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation. Built-in Powered Subwoofers Make a Dramatic Audible Difference Most audio experts agree that the ideal surround speaker system would have 5 identical truly full range speakers at every position. But most rooms and setups can't accommodate 5 identical large speakers. So Definitive engineered the next best thing: a truly full range center speaker that fits easily on a shelf. The CS-8060HD features an 8-inch subwoofer driver vented via a wide cross-sectional area bass port. A 150-watt amplifier powers and tightly monitors and controls the woofer system to prevent distortion and woofer damage at high volume levels. Its upward-firing woofer system only requires 1" (25mm) of clearance, so it works perfectly whether you mount it in free air or put it in a cabinet. The bottom line is that you’ll enjoy a truly full dynamic range and full frequency center channel that actually outperforms many floor-standing main speakers. Featuring an integrated 8" powered subwoofer the CS-8060HD delivers the sonic impact of a floorstanding speaker. View larger Patented Technology Delivers High Definition and Wide Dispersion The "HD" in the name of this speaker stands for High Dispersion. Dispersing the center channel sound evenly over a broad area of the room is vital if all listeners in the room (even those sitting well away from the "sweet spot") are to hear clear, concise and highly intelligible dialogue. Definitive's CS series offers the latest generation ultra-high definition midrange drivers that set new standards for wide dispersion. The CS-8060HD features a D’Appolito array consisting of two cast-basket 4-1/2" (11cm) second generation BDSS midrange drivers surrounding a 1" annealed Pure Aluminum dome tweeter housed in an acoustically isolated sealed enclosure. These are the same drivers and tweeters used in the BP-8060ST bipolar SuperTower loudspeakers, making the CS-8060HD the perfect center channel match. The drivers feature Definitive’s patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) technology that supports the speaker cone at both the inner and outer edges allowing longer, more linear excursion for greater clarity and finely textured inner detail. A new patent-pending Linear Response Waveguide smoothes off-axis frequency response and disperses sound over a wider area for crystal-clear intelligibility for every listener in the room. The 1” (25mm) tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. Non-Resonant, Low-Diffraction Cabinet Maintains Sonic Purity All the driver and electronics technology in the world would be wasted if housed in a resonance-prone box. The tapered front of the enclosure serves to make it appear slimmer while also enhancing sound quality by minimizing cabinet diffraction distortion, while a second layer of heavy MDF inside the cabinet prevents the drivers from imparting vibration to the rest of the enclosure. The decorative high gloss end caps and top trim panel add elegance to the matte black grille cloth the way satin piping adds dash to a tuxedo.
