Great buy for this price

 

For the price this is a very good price. I am a very satisfied costumer.

Price. Crisp and clean

Little bulky

Beautiful Sound

 

I can't wait until I get the BP Super Towers with the powered subs. The combination of the two sets of speakers are going to just blow me away. I will have to pry myself out from in front of the action movies and video games.

These things sound exceptional. The speaker configuration literally fills my living room with sound and I find myself quite often looking for where a sound came from in the house only to realize it was in the movie and the speakers directed it giving a...

The top cap on one of the speakers has a slight bow in it which can be a minor visual annoyance, but then again, I didn't buy these speakers to look at them

Def Tech BP8B

 

I have these up front,A CS8040HD center,Mythos Gems for rear surrounds and a Yamaha YSW216 sub, wired to a Yamaha RX-V375, Speakers are set to small and crossed over @80, with the sub gain @ 50% in a 14x16x8 ft room and it sounds great for HT,I have...

Crystal clear highs with adequate lows,5yr warranty and at 199.00 a piece, I had to have a set,They sound Fantastic right out of the box,Def Tech says 20-40 hrs break in and at the 10 hr mark,I could hear a difference,A more enveloping soundfield,These...

None

Amazing Piano

 

Piano sounds amazing. Movies sound amazing. Bass is very good for what you pay for. The mids and highs are very, very clear. A friend with a big surround system was amazed what these did for home theater by themselves. You will hear things you have...

No built in subwoofer but what the heck do you want for this price? Not great for heavy metal music. That's because the bipolar technology isn't a 'blast at your head' technology. It's a flowing, more symphonic, more surround-type experience

Consumer review by:

Finally got em

 

Get em before they are all gone.

Better in every way than my Polk Monitor 60's. Soundstage is so much better, fuller. I have these running with 2 powered subs set at 60hz crossover thru receiver and man do they sound amazing. I wish I had the cash to get another pair and leave em in...

Pfft

Consumer review by:

BP8B - stellar!

 

A little sceptical buying something I couldn't hear first but, decided to go for it based on the great reviews these speakers get from all sites. Plus, getting a pair for the price of 1 normal retail is a steal! In fact, they're a steal at regular...

Room filling sound ; Good base response

None that I can think of

Consumer review by:

rock the casbah

 

These rock, have wanted a pair for 10 years and the $199 sale price tag was right. I have a loft-style 1500 square foot condo with 25 foot ceilings. I have no sub and these things still fill the space wonderfully. I keep them about 8-10" from the wall...

Mine are on hardwood so are fine, but I'd guess if they were on carpet they may be a bit wobbley. Also, the top panel isn't on there as good as I though. The connectors are on the bottom of the speaker, so they can be tricky to get to. None of this is...

Love mine! Thinking about more...

 

Lovely appearance. Great uncolored sound for Jazz, classics, American standards and rock as long as you don't need that "boom boom" bass common on hip hop. Not that bass is lacking it's just very natural and not emphasized. Mine really shine in a large...

Not for every environment, particularly if insufficient space is available behind the speakers. These are tall and could tip over if in a traffic zone (think of kids playing around them)

Consumer review by:

Really nice sound!

 

The speakers are really well made and come with a 5 year warrenty so you know that the quality of the parts is very high for them to stand by them that long. I highly recommend these or any Definitive speaker, they are just that good!

Definitive Technology started out with the BP10 and built a company on the back of that speaker. This BP8 was a fantastic 2nd addition to there line. I have owned Bose, Infinity and Klipsch. Def Tec takes them all with there BiPolar imaging in my...

The speakers are full size and might not fit in smaller rooms without standing out. The sock that covers the speakers can start looking ruff if you have a cat with front claws, lol
