Summary: I have owned a pair of BP-10's since 1994. They sound as good today, as the day I got them. Placement of the speaker makes a huge differance. They definately will lack full potential if placed on concrete, w concrete wall behind them. I have cut these speakers no slack, and they continue to deliver. Built to last the 100 year storm. So solidly constructed. You can sit any item on top of them and pound them as hard as possible. The item will not move.
Summary: I had a pair of the original BP10's and, very stupidly, sold them about 14 years ago. I absolutely loved those speakers! I actually had traded them in for a pair of the then flagship model BP2000's with the built-in 15" subs. The BP2000's were great speakers in their own right, but were really too much speaker for the room that I had them in at the time. If you're looking for a great pair of mains for a surround system, you can't go wrong with the BP10's.
Summary: I have a pair of these Definitive Technology BP10B speakers as the main speakers in my home theater. They replaced a pair of Kef C95 main speakers which have the Uni-Q driver. Although the Uni-Q drivers produce a very crisp sound, those Kef Speakers only reached down to 50Hz and so, they didn't have as wide of a frequency range as the Definitive Technology BP10B speakers.
Summary: I switched from a 5.1 system to a 7.1, and bought these speakers to replace my Polks as the main speakers, relegating the Polks to surround speakers. These speakers create a spaciousness of sound that the Polks could not reproduce. The bipolar technology definitely makes a difference, especially when listening to a good concert DVD in DTS master audio. You will still need a good subwoofer with these speakers, because they are only adequate to about 60 hertz.
Summary: I've owned these speakers for 17 years and they continue to provide extremely fine sound. In the past I have owned Bose 901s among other speakers and these BP10s provide equal quality sound to my ears. In short, they leave nothing to be desired.
