Summary: Was advised by a sound professional to purchase this, and glad I did. This sub is awesome! The sound is clean and natural. I love having the remote to be able to turn it down when my animals get nervous from the big thindering boom from cinema action. Great features,; great buy. Highly reccomend.
I didn't think it could fulfill it's namesake of SuperCube

Summary: I read all the available information I could here on Amazon and on the Definitive Technology sites and kept wondering how is it possible for such a tiny speaker to put out such sound. The more I read the more I wanted to try it and so I did. I wasn't at all disappointed by it's sound which is really awesome.
Summary: I purchased this and returned it. The SC4000 sounds fine if you have never heard a real subwoofer such as those made by SVS, but the SC4000 has a forced electronic bass that is in no way as visceral as the SVS sub that I own. The SVS SB12-NSD is only slightly larger, looks better (in my opinion) and costs less. You get to audition it for free (SVS ships it to you for free and also pay for return shipping if you choose to return it).
Summary: I have a complete set of def techs 8040 front, rear and center speakers. I bought this subwoofer and it sounded like shit. My 7 year old Klipsch RW 12d sounds 10x better. Maybe the SC 8000 might sound better better but I dont have that kind of money.
Summary: this product does not produce nearly as much bass as other subs in its price class. 8 inches is 8inches. It just doesn't move enough air. If you push it, the sound becomes distorted by woofer and cabinet noises cause by extreme excursion of the woofer.
Summary: Added this for 7.2 with my KEF HTS 3005 home theater. The room is 14x22 with 8' ceiling (basement). This unit digs where the KEF sub won't go and in a clean, solid and not distorted way! I got the wireless kit but haven't tried it yet....Just to have options. Sounds as good with music as it does with movies. Just got my dedicated theater operating. Can't imagine how this will sound after acoustic treatment and fine tuning. I'm VERY happy with this purchase!
Definitive Tech SC4000 + Klipsch Quintet 5.0 + Klipsch SW-350 = Awesome (especially this little guy)

Summary: I bought the Definitive Technology SC4000 Definitive Technology SC4000 Subwoofer - Black, Klipsch SW-350 Klipsch SW-350 8-Inch 350 Watt Subwoofer (Black) and Klipsch Quintet Klipsch Quintet 5.0 Home Theater Speaker System (Black) set to replace my current Onkyo home theater in a box. I wanted something that could be accurate and loud enough for music and movies, but was also relatively small (the wife thanks me for that).
Summary: I'm not terribly familiar with subwoofers or home theaters, but to me, this subwoofer is perfect. It packs a lot of punch but offers a great clear sound. It is part of a 5.1 system I setup in my basement with a Marantz receiver and Polk Audio LS-class in-wall speakers. The sound is fantastic. Love it.
