A high end speaker that's reasonably priced. Made in the USA too.

Summary: Excellent performance and great appearance too. This speaker will raise the performance level of any good audio system. Solid construction built with hi-tech speakers that reveal all the subtle textures in the music.
Summary: These surround speakers are HEAVY! Floor mounted mine with some speaker stands. Handle lots of power and sound beautiful. Great finish and design, awesome clarity, blu-rays shine. Set to 100hz on your receiver.
Summary: I bought this as part of a whole surround package - Definitive 8040 system. I have a old Sony V444ES powering this. The surrounds speaker work as I expected Definitely changes the atmosphere of the movie, or music.Gotta have these! Considering the speakers are sonically matched with each of the other components, (main tower, center etc) the room is filled with natural sound. Jazz and classical sound real.
Summary: These were the last to a 8040 system. Having a fully balanced sound for movies and music is a joy. Slightly softer in sound compared to my Klipsch system and the amp has to be pushed a little more due to the loss in efficiency but everyone is shocked that they can't see a sub in the room. The smoothness from top to bottom in range is startlingly impressive. Won't be making a purchase anytime soon.
SR-8040BP surround speakers are a definite upgrade to my surround system.

Summary: I wish I hadn't waited so long! I had small bookshelf speakers for my rears in my surround-sound system for years, and while they worked fine, replacing them recently (2014) with two Def Tech 8040BP rears has made a definite, audible improvement. Everything just sounds more realistic. And they look good too!
