Definitive Technology has the SSA-42's Spatial Array technolgy brings you enveloping surround sound without the bother of rear mounted speakers solution: the Solo Surround Array SSA-42 loudspeaker. The SSA-42 incorporates Spatial Array™, a unique patented technology that optimizes the spatial presentation of five channels to create the illusion that you are surrounded by five separate high performance speakers. Enjoying a superb sounding audiophile-grade surround experience has never been more convenient. Simply connect an SSA-42 to any multi-channel receiver and powered subwoofer to enjoy enveloping surround sound without the bother of running long wires and finding places for rear speakers.

The Perfectly Simple Surround Solution

  • SSA Surround technology uses subtle but complex directional cues to completely free the sound from the box and convince your ear/brain listening mechanism that you are surrounded by great sounding Definitive loudspeakers. Since Spatial Array technology does not depend on bouncing sound off walls, it works in virtually any room and set-up configuration.
  • The SSA-42 uses Spatial Array technology on the front left and right speakers as well as the surround channels, so that you get big three-dimensional imaging from both stereo and multi-channel sources

Superior Definitive Technology

  • First and foremost, a single speaker surround solution needs to have excellent audio fidelity and clarity to deliver a truly satisfying listening experience
  • It is here that Definitive's SSA-42 truly distinguishes itself. The front Left, Right and Center channel drivers utilize Definitive's exclusive and patent-pending Balanced Dual SSA-42's superior BDSS drivers ensure clear, natural and detailed sound Surround System (BDSS) technology
  • Speaker cones usually have one support point at the circumference of the cone (called the surround) but BDSS drivers have two support points or surrounds

A Sweeter Tweeter

  • Definitive's tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. In order to keep the enclosure from being longer than popular sized video displays, Definitive engineers positioned the front channel tweeters in front of the drivers
  • While this is a commonly used space-saving technique, a tweeter placed in front of the driver usually interferes with the driver's sound waves
  • Using computer and physical modeling, Definitive developed tweeter-housing geometry and venting that eliminates interference effects for the kind of audiophile-grade clarity, precision and accuracy that has made Definitive the number one choice of high-end loudspeaker buyers
Superior Definitive Aluminum Enclosure
  • Like the entire Mythos Series, the SSA models are fabricated from aircraft-grade extruded aluminum styled to perfectly match today's flat panel plasma and LCD TVs
  • Choose either gloss Black or brushed Aluminum finishes that have been hand-polished to a beautiful pearlescent sheen. The SSAs can be shelf or wall mounted with supplied hardware
  • Internal baffles and braces inside the enclosure eliminate interference effects between drivers and channels for true audiophile purity and maximum channel separation
