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 center 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 center 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 center channel offerings narrowly focus only on reproducing voice dialog, the CS9080 integrates a powered 8” subwoofer and a passive 10” bass radiator for maximum impact - front and center where you expect it. In addition, the presence of a subwoofer in the center of your soundfield ensures more even bass distribution throughout the room.



Balanced Double Surround System™ (BDSS™) 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 utilized 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 utilizing 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 center 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.
