With unique technologies such as Forward Focused Bipolar Array, BDSS™ woofers, and an integrated 8” subwoofer, the BP9020 tower speaker brings you bold cinema sound for extraordinary home cinema experiences.
Forward Focused Bipolar Array
for stunning depth of field
The BP9020 premier technology is our patented Forward Focused Bipolar Array (FFBA). The BP9020 array incorporates three 3.5” midrange drivers (two front-facing/one rear-facing) and one front-facing 1” aluminum dome tweeter. By simultaneously firing both forward and backward, a naturalistic delay is added to the sound that creates a sense of immense depth in rooms of any size.
Built-in 8” Powered Subwoofer
for powerful bass
The BP9020 includes a built-in powered 8” subwoofer, which results in more consistent bass throughout your room. With integrated subwoofers, you’ll feel impactful low end that you wouldn’t expect from floorstanding loudspeakers alone.
Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS™)
for the best seat in the house
All mid/bass woofers in the BP9020 feature our innovative Balanced Double Surround System™ (BDSS) technology which improves driver excursion. BDSS results in a wider, more uniform midrange soundstage throughout your listening environment and also enables the BP9020’s woofers to play lower and blend better with its built-in subwoofer. With a more consistent soundstage and detailed mids and lows, BDSS drivers ensure that with the BP9020, you’re always in the best seat in the house.
Aluminum Dome Tweeters
for crystal clear highs
The BP9020’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.
The Perfect Movie Night
It’s not just the wide soundstage, thunderous bass, and detailed drivers that make the BP9020 an integral component in your home theater speaker system. The BP9020 also features Intelligent Bass Control, a disappearing design, and the ability to integrate a height module for a truly immersive and powerful 3D sound experience.
Intelligent Bass Control
for punch with clarity
Intelligent Bass Control, a Definitive Technology exclusive, enables you to experience powerful deep bass performance from the BP9020 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 and crossover point. Combined with BP9020’s resonance-free cabinets, Intelligent Bass Control ensures that your chosen bass level will never get in the way of dialogue or any other aspect of the soundtrack.
for focus on what matters
The BP9020 is wrapped in an acoustically transparent black cloth grille that won’t affect the sound. As soon as you dim the lights, they disappear into your room—so you can focus on the movie, not your speakers.
Dolby Atmos & DTS:X
for total immersion
Pair the BP9020 with the A90 Height Module to take full advantage of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 3D audio. When you integrate the dramatic vertical dimension they provide with the stunning depth of field, wide soundstage, and deep bass offered by BP9020 you’ll enjoy games, music, and film with a full level of 3D sound immersion unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
Intelligent Design Details
Modern and Sleek
We understand that you make a statement with your choice of home theater components. The BP9020 wasn’t just designed to sound sensational; they also make for a compelling yet understated visual presence in your home.
Versatile placement for complete flexibility
The wide footprint of the BP9020’s cast aluminum base increases overall stability of the tower speaker, while the addition of spikes or floor glides help keep your speakers firmly in place, whether on carpet or other solid floor surfaces like hardwood or cement.
Beautiful Music, Too
Not Just for Home Cinema
All the advances that make the BP9000 Series the ultimate home cinema speaker system apply to beautiful music reproduction as well. That’s why the BP9000 Series is also revered for its extraordinary musicality—it’s like sitting with the mix engineer when watching concerts or music videos, or when listening to multichannel audio from FLAC, Blu-ray or SACD sources.
