However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (508) 771-4434 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Definitive Reference Architectural Speakers are perfect for bringing spectacular-sounding, high-performance "invisible" home theater systems into every room in your house. The Reference Surround Speaker II (RSS II) is intended for use as an in-ceiling or in-wall rear or side surround speaker in custom installed home theater systems of the highest quality.

The RSS II features a non-resonant sealed medite (a dense wood product) enclosure to deliver the tight, detailed bass and uncolored midrange of audiophile free-standing speakers in every installation. The performance of open back built-in speakers will vary depending on the nature of the wall/ceiling cavity behind the speaker. But Definitive Reference series speakers with integrated enclosures sound superb every time. Six rotating dogleg clamps and beefy wood screws make the RSS II easy to install in either new or existing construction and provide secure, non-resonant mounting for ultimate audiophile performance free of vibrations and buzzes.

It features a curved angle bipolar array, which is perfect for movie and music surround use because it provides an ideal combination of direct sound for specificity and localization and ambient sound for enhanced spaciousness. The RSS II delivers uniquely enveloping surround performance totally immersing the listeners in a complete 360-degree soundstage. Walls seem to disappear and the listening room will be almost magically transformed into the location of the original sonic event. The curved aspect of the bipolar array further improves dispersion into the room. When installed in the ceiling, the direction in which the driver arrays face can be rotated 90 degrees in order to optimize the performance depending on the specific location of the speakers in relation to the seating area.

Each RSS II bipolar surround speaker contains two complete 3-way full-range systems each with a 4-1/2 inch cast-basket bass/midrange driver pressure coupled to a 4-1/2 inch planar Bass Radiator and a 1" pure aluminum tweeter, for a total of 6 driver/radiators in each speaker. The RSS II's dynamic, spacious and uncolored sonic signature has been specifically engineered to blend perfectly with any of Definitive's loudspeakers whether freestanding, in-wall or in-ceiling for an amazing lifelike sonic experience.
