Center-Channel Loudspeaker: The Definitive Technology CS9040
center-channel loudspeaker delivers immense clarity and focus to the vocal
range, accurately reproducing even the most demanding audio soundtrack content
so you can experience every detail of your home theater.
Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The CS9040 center-channel loudspeaker features
one 1" aluminum dome tweeters for crystal clear highs that bring the most
demanding audio soundtracks to life. The Definitive Technology tweeter is
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 CS9040 employs two
midrange cone woofers 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
8" Bass Radiator: The top-mounted 8" bass radiator offers deeper,
more impactful bass from the center-channel speaker without the need to add a
separate, powered subwoofer.
Resonance-Free Cabinet: The Definitive Technology CS9040 uses a resonance-free 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
Acoustically Transparent Grille:
The CS9040 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.
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.
Mounting & Placement Options: The Definitive Technology
center-channel loudspeaker can be placed on top of a flat-surface; such as a
stand, shelf, cabinet or other piece of AV furniture. Integrated rubber feet make sure the speaker stays in place and does not scratch your furniture. To optimize its performance, please follow these simple guidelines.
- The center-channel speaker should be placed as close to the center of
your television as possible without obstructing your view.
- To receive the full benefit of the built-in bass radiator, leave at
least 1-2" of space between the top of the speaker and any surface.
