Definitive Audio Performance
A Wall of Pure Sound

Bold and powerful, the DT8LCR features an 8” Woofer and 1” Pivoting Dome Tweeter in a rectangular form factor engineered for in-wall audio excellence. Every component in the DT8LCR is conceived and developed in-house for a listening experience that delivers and a product that endures.

Low-Diffraction Swivel Tweeter for high-performance high frequencies

The DT8LCR features our low-diffraction swivel tweeter. Its specially-designed housing eliminates cross-driver interference with the midrange driver while improving dispersion and off-axis response. The swivel mechanism enables the installer to aim the tweeter for pinpoint direct audio or diffuse surround sound.

High-Performance Audio Components in your walls and ceilings

Teeming with high-tech components such as annealed aluminum tweeters, polypropylene mineral-filled mid/bass cones, and anti-diffraction surfaces, the DT Series reproduces audio with the legendary voicing you've come to expect from Definitive Technology.


Pure Aluminum Swivel Tweeter

The ultralight, rigid construction of the DT8LCR's aluminum dome tweeter enables it to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, allowing for optimum linearity within the range of human hearing. The swivel mechanism lets installers orient the tweeter for precise direct sound or diffuse surround sound - or anything in between.

Polypropylene Mineral-filled Midrange/Woofer

Coupled with butyl rubber surrounds, the polypropylene mineral-filled midrange/woofer cone is a superb combination of lightness, stiffness, excursion, and control. The result: quick and punchy bass with smooth and detailed midrange.

High-Definition Crossover

The crossover is critical to delivering high-end audio quality. A high-definition crossover network with Mylar capacitors is a key contributor to the DT8LCR's smooth and accurate performance throughout its entire frequency range.


Quick and Easy Installs
Truly Custom Installations

Using only four common tools and a pencil, installers will find it a breeze to install the DT8LCR speaker. With strong yet lightweight construction, integrated pivoting lock arms, paintable grilles, and magnetic grille fasteners, you’ll have your DT8LCR speakers installed and playing in no time.

Pivoting Tweeters for customized sound

When using DT8LCR as front L/C/R speakers in a home theater setup or as stereo speakers in a distributed audio system, installers can aim the tweeter toward the main listening position for improved imaging and detail. When using as rear/surround speakers, installers can aim the tweeter toward an adjacent wall or ceiling for a more diffuse sound field.

Fewer Tools Needed for faster installs

Rotating lock arms, magnetically-attached grilles, and heavy-gauge speaker wire push terminals enable a faster, simpler installation using fewer tools.


Paintable Magnetic Grilles for the custom touch

All DT Series speaker grilles and grille frames are paintable, with easy step-by-step instructions. Once you have your perfect look, powerful neodymium magnets attach the grilles to the speakers for a secure, tool-free finish.
