The Perfectly Simple Surround Solution
If you want all the thrills of five channel surround sound without the need for separate rear speakers, Definitive Technology has the 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. 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.

  • Five discrete channels from one superb speaker sized to match 42-inch and larger TVs - wall or shelf-mount with supplied hardware
  • The perfect surround audio solution when you are unable or unwilling to wire and place rear channel speakers in your room
  • The front Left, Right and Center channel drivers utilize Definitive's exclusive and patent-pending Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology
  • Spatial Array™- patented technology that optimizes the spatial presentation of five channels to create the illusion of five separate surround speakers

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 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. This design suppresses cone resonance and promotes a longer, more linear cone motion for higher output, lower distortion and more accurate frequency response. You'll enjoy perfectly natural and lifelike timbre with crystalline clarity on voices, musical instruments and movie sound effects, even at high-volume levels.

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 engineers developed unique 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.

A Component Approach
SSAs are true component loudspeakers and must be used with a 5.1 or 7.1 channel receiver. Some one or two speaker surround solutions are self contained systems with source (DVD player) and amplifiers built in. That may be convenient but that approach severely limit sound quality, functionality, upgradability and connectivity to other components. Component systems give you the best flexibility, performance and allow the greatest degree of audio/video system integration and freedom from obsolescence. Self contained systems have limited digital inputs, limited video switching, low power, no HD radio, no satellite radio, limited features and a host of other limitations. With the SSA approach, you will be able to use the electronics that best meet your unique needs and still provide the benefits of single speaker surround. We designed the SSA-42 for quality-conscious people who want the flexibility and performance of a component system but cannot or are unwilling to accommodate discrete rear channel speakers.
