Tower Loudspeaker: The Definitive Technology BP9060 tower
speaker is the answer for remarkable, immersive, room-filling sound so you can
experience every detail of your home theater soundtrack. Its patented Forward
Focused Bipolar Array (FFBP) will expand your room's entire soundstage for an
enveloping sound. An aluminum dome tweeter, high-performance midrange/midbass
drivers, and an integrated powered subwoofer with Intelligent Bass Control let
you hear and feel every note as the artist intended.
Forward-Focused Bipolar Array (FFBP): The Definitive
Technology BP9060 tower speaker utilizes powerful, Forward-Focused Bipolar
(FFBP) speaker array for wide and immersive sound dispersion. Forward Focused
Bipolar (FFBP) Array offers the ultimate balance between room-filling sound and
a precise center image, while giving you total placement flexibility. The FFBP
array consists of a 1" aluminum dome tweeter and two 4.5" midrange/midbass cone
woofers on the front and a single 1" aluminum dome tweeter and one 4.5" midrange
driver on the back. By radiating sound both forward and rearward, the speaker
produces sound as it is in real life, with improved pinpoint localization of
soloists, greater placement flexibility, and superior intelligibility.
Aluminum Dome Tweeters: The BP9060 tower loudspeaker features
two 1" aluminum dome tweeters (one on front/one of back) for crystal clear highs
that bring the most demanding audio soundtracks to life. The Definitive
Technology tweeters are designed to play higher in frequency than what is heard
by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist
intends in the studio or concert hall.
BDSS (2nd Gen) Drivers: The Definitive Technology BP9060
employs three 4.5" midrange/midbass cone woofers (two on front/one on back) with
patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) technology (2nd generation).
BDSS technology improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver
producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining
the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.
Integrated Powered Subwoofer: The BP9060 contains a
integrated powered subwoofer that consists of a side-firing 10" woofer and 300
watt amplifier designed to extend the frequency response and dynamic range of
the tower speaker. The best loudspeaker is one that reproduces balance between
the highest highs down to deepest lows as accurately as possible. The integrated
powered subwoofer offers deeper, more impactful bass from the tower speaker
without the need to add a separate powered sub. The benefits of a built-in
subwoofer include -
- Eliminates the need for a separate subwoofer that takes up additional
- More bass output from two subwoofers, compared to one.
- Two subwoofers reduce standing wave room resonances and dead zones.
- The subwoofers are perfectly integrated and blended with the mids and
highs, eliminating the crossover and phase controls of a separate subwoofer.
Intelligent Bass Control: Intelligent Bass Control is
Definitive Technology's latest advancement that offers enhanced bass while
maintaining overall mid-range tonal balance. Intelligent Bass Control gives you
the ability to modulate deep bass up or down in level while simultaneously
maintaining optimal mid-range clarity regardless of where the bass control is
set. Simply rotate the dial on the back of the loudspeaker to your preferred
bass setting and the speaker will do the rest. Definitive Technology recommends
starting at the mid-point and then adjust to your preference from there.
Dual Passive Radiators: Definitive Technology has paired its
integrated powered subwoofer system with two opposite side-firing 10" passive
radiators for even bigger, deeper, louder bass that you can hear and feel.
Acoustically Transparent, Resonance-Free Cabinet: The
Definitive Technology BP9060 uses a resonance-free, one-piece cabinet for high
performance, distortion-free sound. The speaker cabinet's maximum rigidity with
strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further
reinforcing the speaker's clean and powerful sound. The BP9060 loudspeaker's
cabinet is wrapped in an acoustically transparent cloth grille for unaltered
sound. Thanks to the speaker's acoustically transparent grille, you'll enjoy the
subtle elegance of the speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille
to enjoy natural, uncolored sound. On the top of the cabinet is a brushed
aluminum, acoustically-treated magnetic plate that finishes off the speaker
Speaker & Line Level Inputs: The Definitive Technology
BP9060 tower loudspeaker is fitted with both speaker-level (binding post) and
line-level (LFE/mono-RCA) inputs.
- Binding Post Terminals: The speaker terminals are 5-way
binding posts that will accommodate spade connectors, single or dual banana
plugs, pin-connectors, and bare wire up to 10 gauge. By connecting the tower
speaker's binding post terminals to your AV receiver's front speaker terminal
outputs, the BP9060's internal crossover network distributes all frequencies
to their intended drivers, and the integrated subwoofer works harmoniously
with the mid-range array. In your AV receiver's menu, set the Front speakers
to "Large" and Subwoofer to "No".
- LFE/mono-RCA Input: For those you demand greater
customization, the BP9060 also features an LFE/mono-RCA input. In this
setup, your AV receiver's front speaker outputs still connect to the
BP9060's binding post speaker terminals, but also requires that the AV
receiver's LFE/mono-RCA output to be connected to the tower speaker's
LFE/mono-RCA input. This type of setup gives you the ability to control the
amount of low frequencies (those below the crossover point set in your
receiver) sent to the integrated subwoofer. You will need to set front
speakers to "Small", subwoofer to "Yes", and the crossover point in your AV
receiver to 80Hz or below to avoid disturbing the delicate blending between
the subwoofer and midrange. In addition, careful balance between the
subwoofer output level of your receiver and the bass control on the back of
your speaker should be considered (Definitive Technology recommends starting
with the bass control at 12 o'clock).
Note: Definitive Technology recommends that you do not use
your receiver's auto setup functions, as they can be ineffective in setting
up and adjusting speakers with integrated powered subwoofers. Configure
tower speaker into your home theater system using your AV receiver's manual
Cast Aluminum Base w/ Interchangeable Feet: The BP9060 tower
loudspeaker is supported by a sturdy, cast aluminum base. The cast aluminum
base's wide footprint increases overall stability of the tower speaker, while
the addition of spikes or floor glides help keep your speakers firmly in place
whether on carpet or other solid floor surfaces like hardwood or tile. The floor
glides add approximately 0.4375" to the overall height of the tower speaker,
while the spike feet add approximately 1" to the overall height of the speaker.
Note: The tower speaker must be used with the cast aluminum
base for maximum stability.
Placement: The BP9060 tower speaker offers bipolar sound,
meaning they will reflect sound off the back and side walls to create an
incredibly broad and engaging soundstage no matter where you sit. The BP9060
tower loudspeaker is very flexible in terms of positioning and placement. To
optimize performance, please follow these simple placement guidelines -
- Setup a pair of tower loudspeakers and the main listening position in an
equilateral triangle for the best stereo imaging.
- Position each tower speaker at least 4" away from the back wall to
maximize its bipolar sound.
- Toeing the tower speakers in slightly, if possible, toward your viewing
area will also provide a stronger center image.
AC Power: Because the BP9060 features a built-in powered
subwoofer, you will need to connect the tower speaker to an AC outlet. The tower
speaker's built-in amplifier will automatically turn-on once it's receiving an
active signal from your AV receiver, and will automatically turn off after 20
minutes of no active signal.
Front-Panel LED: There is a front-panel LED "D" logo which
illuminates when the BP9060's built-in amplifier is on, and turns off when the
built-in amp is in standby mode. The LED "D" logo can be deactivated entirely.
Optional Dolby Atmos Elevation Module: The BP9060 features
an integrated, hidden connector port that fits Definitive Technology's
A90 Dolby Atmos elevation speaker module (sold separately) seamlessly.
Simply remove the magnetically-sealed, acoustically treated aluminum top panel
from the BP9060 tower speaker and firmly align and place the A90 elevation
speaker module within the top of the tower speaker to hear and feel Dolby Atmos
multi-dimensional sound. There are dedicated binding post terminals (labeled
"Height") to connect the "Height" channels of your AV receiver to the BP9060.You
will also need a Dolby Atmos-enabled receiver and Dolby Atmos-encoded source
