BASS IMPROVEMENTS When Definitive brought the BP-9060 speakers to Crutchfield HQ for a demo, they weren't shy about showing off the improvements they've made. They put them up against the previous model, the BP-8060, for an A/B listening test. The differences were striking. The biggest difference we noticed was in the bass response. It's much deeper and tighter thanks to Definitive's new Intelligent Bass Control. Plus, the built-in subs blended more smoothly with the midrange, so they don't muddy the vocals and other midrange sounds. The result was a much more accurate, dynamic performance. Best-of-both-worlds tweeter The 1" aluminum dome tweeter offers outstanding high-frequency extension, while the silk surround ensures smooth sound. This frequency response graph shows how the new BP-9060 (green) uses DeRnitive's Intelligent Bass Control to deliver more powerful, accurate bass than the '8060. Notice the Satter response and higher amplitude on the left side of the graph, which represents the low frequencies.
