With unique technologies such as Forward Focused Bipolar Array, BDSS™ drivers, and integrated 8” subwoofers, the BP9020 tower speaker brings you bold cinema sound for extraordinary home cinema experiences.
It’s not just the wide soundstage, thunderous bass, and detailed drivers that make the BP9020 an integral component in your home theatre 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.
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.
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” aluminium 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.
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.
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.
The BP9020’s Aluminium 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 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.
We understand that you make a statement with your choice of home theatre components. The BP9020 wasn’t just designed to sound sensational; they also make for a compelling yet understated visual presence in your home.
The wide footprint of the BP9020’s cast aluminium base increases the 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.
To highlight the integrated powered subwoofer and show that your speaker is receiving a signal, you'll find an LED logo at its bottom front panel. Turn it on or off at your leisure and also note that it will automatically turn off/standby after 20 minutes of no active signal.
Pair the BP9020 with the A90 Height Module (sold separately) 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.
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.
The arrival of BP9000 Series ushers true high-performance, full-range sound into a new era—totally redesigned and re-engineered with improvements that cascade across every one of our patented audio technologies. From advances in our Forward Focused Bipolar Array, built-in powered subwoofers, new Intelligent Bass Control™, and seamless Dolby Atmos® / DTS:X integration™, the BP9000 Series offers the big, room-filling, yet precise sound you demand with an elegant footprint that makes every single day of ownership a marvel to behold.
