The CS9080 features high-performance BDSS mid/bass drivers, aluminum dome tweeters, and an integrated 8” powered subwoofer and bass radiator with Intelligent Bass Control. With the CS9080, you’ll hear centre channel audio with a level of clarity and impact that’s unlike anything you have ever experienced before.
Integrated 8“ Subwoofer and Bass Radiator
for maximum impact
The centre channel is critical for more than just vocal clarity, it is also the location of much of the sound effects audio in films. Where most competitive centre channel offerings narrowly focus only on reproducing voice dialog, the CS9080 integrates a powered 8” subwoofer and a passive 8” bass radiator for maximum impact—front and centre where you expect it. In addition, the presence of a subwoofer in the centre of your soundfield ensures more even bass distribution throughout the room.
Balanced Double Surround System™
for the best seat in the house
At the heart of the CS9080’s speaker array are two innovative 5.25” Balanced Double Surround System™ drivers, designed to always place you in the best seat in the house. BDSS improves driver excursion, allowing the CS9080’s mid/bass drivers to play lower and blend with its built-in subwoofer and bass radiator.
Because this technology is utilised across the entire BP9000 Series, when integrated with other BP9000 models, the CS9080 contributes to a more uniform midrange soundstage throughout your listening environment. That means anchored, centrally focused dialog; full range reproduction of scores and sound effects; and a seamless flow of panned audio from loudspeaker to loudspeaker.
Intelligent Bass Control
for punch with clarity
Intelligent Bass Control, a Definitive Technology exclusive, enables you to experience powerfully impactful bass performance from the CS9080 without sacrificing optimal midrange clarity. Intelligent Bass Control achieves this by utilising 56-bit digital signal processing to allow boosting of the bottom two octaves of your signal without altering the bass-to-midbass blending or crossover point. With Intelligent Bass Control, you have the power to enjoy deep centre bass without drowning out the dialog.
Aluminum Dome Tweeters
for crystal clear highs
The CS9080’s Aluminum Dome Tweeters feature ultralight, rigid construction that enables them to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear with incredibly fast and accurate transient response. This provides effortless, distortion-free performance within and beyond the audible range—perfect for the enjoyment of high resolution audio.
“5-STARS. If there’s a better sounding and performing centre channel speaker out there, I’d love to know what it is. This has the power and finesse to deliver the most realistic audio from any content, particularly punchy, detailed, precision mastered movie audio. You will be blown away if you try one out.”
