Dolby Atmos Elevation Speaker Module: Definitive Technology designed
the A90 elevation module as a dedicated height speaker designed specifically for
the BP9060, BP9040, and BP9020 models so you can fully enjoy a Dolby Atmos
multi-dimensional sound experience within your home theater setup. The A90
easily connects and sits within the top of the BP9000 speaker to fire sound

Compatibility: The Definitive Technology A90 Dolby Atmos elevation
speaker module seamlessly integrates within the top of the following Definitive
Technology BP9000 series tower speakers -
BP9060 (all sold
separately). The A90 adds approximately 3.875" to the overall height of the BP
9000 series tower loudspeakers.
Proprietary, Plug-In Connector: The Definitive Technology A90 is
fitted with a proprietary male connector, which plugs into the proprietary
female connector on top of the BP9000 series tower speakers. You will also need
to run speaker wire from your Dolby Amos AV receiver's "Height" speaker outputs
to your BP9000 series tower speaker's "Height" terminal inputs.
Two-Way Driver Design: The Definitive Technology A90 Dolby Atmos
elevation speaker module employs a two-way driver design with a 1" aluminum dome
tweeter and a 4.5" midrange cone woofer. The speaker's crystal clear highs and
detailed midrange bring the most demanding audio to life. Definitive
Technology's tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human
ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the
studio or concert hall.
Sloped Speaker Baffle: The Definitive Technology A90 Dolby Atmos
elevation speaker module utilizes a sloped speaker baffle and exclusive foam
construction to provide richness and depth to the sound. The Dolby Atmos
elevation speaker module fires sound upwards, reflecting it off the ceiling and
back down to your viewing area in a tightly controlled dispersion pattern,
damping the sound that remains.
Resonance-Free Cabinet w/ Acoustically Transparent Grille:
The Definitive Technology A90 uses a resonance-free cabinet w/ acoustically
transparent grille for high performance sound. The speaker cabinet's maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing
improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing the speaker's
clean and powerful sound. Thanks to the speaker's acoustically transparent
grille, you'll enjoy the subtle elegance of the
speaker design without having to remove a speaker grille to enjoy natural,
Dolby Atmos: With
Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions, including overhead, to
fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power, detail, and depth. Dolby
Atmos is the first home theater system that is based not on channels, but on
audio objects. Filmmakers using Dolby Atmos can decide exactly where those
sounds should originate and precisely where they move as the scene develops. To
deliver the full object-based soundtrack to home theaters, Dolby developed new
home authoring tools and new encoding methods that allow all the audio objects
created for the cinema to be used in home theater.
