Item Description

These are BIG SPEAKERS with BEAUTIFUL SOUND and INCREDIBLE BASS response. These speakers are bi-polar so they have mid-range and treble cones facing forward and backward which creates an amazing sound stage. Each speaker has a built in 14-inch subwoofer driven by an 1800-watt Class-D amplifier with two 14-inch infrasonic radiators which provides incredibly deep tight bass response down to 11Hz which is perfect for audiophile quality music and home theater.

This posting is for a lightly used pair of Definitive Technology BP7000SC SuperTower speakers. I still have them in the original boxes. These speakers were well cared for by an adult (me) and have only been used at moderate volume levels for approximately 100-200 hours. They are in great condition. I originally purchased these for my home, but I need to downsize into an apartment and they are looking for a new home. These are black with the piano black endcap finish. One of the top endcaps has a small flaw in the finish where the paint has cracked and flaked, but this could be easily repaired/replaced.

I paid over $5,000 for this pair new. Amazon is currently listing a new pair for $5,500. There are audiophile reviews on this speaker claiming that they out perform speakers costing tens of thousands of dollars. I'm asking $3,100 cash. I will also throw in some really good speaker cables.

At 165 pounds each (330 pounds Total) they will be very expensive to ship so I would recommend you pick these up in person--I'm located in the North Dallas area (Frisco, TX, close to Tollway/121). If you want me to ship them, you (the buyer) will be responsible for shipping.

Please read the reviews on these incredible speakers!!!

If you love great sound you must experience the magic of Definitive's BP7000SC Bipolar SuperTowers. Their patented combination of bipolar midrange technology and built-in SuperCube subwoofers deliver unsurpassed sonic performance. Thousands of man-hours of critical listening and engineering utilizing the most advanced computer loudspeaker development programs available--along with fundamental research at the world's most advanced loudspeaker research facility--have combined to create unmatched instruments for the reproduction of music or movies in your home. This extraordinary speaker sets a new reference standard for ultra-dynamic high-accuracy loudspeakers and achieves equally superb performance with both music and movies. They will reproduce a silky smooth, incredibly detailed wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling sonic image with superb dimensionality at lifelike volume levels with a sense of ease which is truly remarkable. The elegant styling features beautiful sculptural refinements to Definitive's signature look with a choice of classic piano-gloss black or a new piano-gloss golden cherry finish. Combine them with perfectly matched Definitive centers and surrounds for an extraordinary home theater system.

Many experts and audiophiles agree that bipolar speakers are superior for both music and home theater. Each speaker incorporates two complete sets of drivers, one facing forward and the other facing to the rear. Definitive's speakers radiate the full sonic spectrum both forward and rearward in an omni-directional pattern, exactly as sound is produced in real life.

The sonic benefits you hear are dramatic. This unique technology provides you with a lifelike balance of early-arrival sound information, which provides focus, clarity and location data, and properly delayed late-arrival information, which conveys the lush three-dimensional soundstage of a live music or cinematic performance. This combination creates a huge soundfield that is rich, warm, ultra-clear and vibrantly alive. Bipolar technology assures a superb panorama of lifelike sound for every listener wherever they are in the room. Most importantly, it will make the walls of your room seem to disappear, effectively expanding the size of your room into the sound space of the recoded event your system is reproducing. These elegant, slender towers provide a huge natural soundstage which extends in a three-dimensional arc beyond the speakers, with front-to-back depth that is almost magical in its ability to recreate the illusion of live music or cinematic action actually being performed in your room.

Each BP7000SC combines a built-in 14" SuperCube subwoofer driven by an 1800-Watt class D amplifier and two pressure-coupled 14" Low Bass radiators for an astounding 461.6 square inches of bass radiating area per speaker. That's 10% more area than a single 24-inch woofer but with better control, speed and detail than a single big woofer could ever deliver. The low-frequency performance sets new standards for speakers priced under $50,000 a pair, with bass extension to 11 Hz, extremely low distortion and tight transient response. A pair of BP7000SCs has the bass impact and output level capability of seven SuperCube I subwoofers combined. The dual built-in powered subwoofers achieve dramatically better blending, integration and timbre accuracy than could ever be achieved with separate subs.

Besides eliminating the need for a floor-hogging separate subwoofer, integrated subs offer dramatic performance benefits. First is the obvious benefit that you'll have two subwoofers in the room instead of just one for simply more bass output. More importantly, the subwoofers are perfectly integrated with the mid/high section. Audiophiles often spend dozens of hours moving and adjusting their subwoofers' crossover and phasing controls in pursuit of perfect subwoofer to main speaker "blending." With the BP7000SC you won't have to go through that kind of hassle to get audio perfection. Definitive's engineers have perfectly adjusted the crossover and phase between the subwoofer and main speaker sections to achieve seamless blending and life-like sound. All you have to do is set the bass volume to match your room and taste, then sit back and enjoy audio perfection. The result is a combination of delicate musicality plus thunderous power which allows you to experience truly awe-inspiring deep rich bass response that effortlessly extends down into the range of purely physical subsonic energy that shakes the body and stirs the soul.
