Ideal For That Small Listening Room

Tracybjazz, Crutchfield
5 days ago
  • Summary: I listen to a lot of 5.1 music (DVD-Audio) and high resolution music files (PCM 24/96) in a dedicated but small listening room (~14'x12'). This DT pro sub 800 is perfect, with a deep, rich tone and chest-vibrating pressure (when I need chest-vibrating pressure).
  • Pros: Great sound in a small footprint; color options; volume control on the side.
  • Cons: Trial and error to find the right cross-over frequency settings.

Initial thoughts - the sub looks like a subwoofer for a computer setup

Calvin Le, Amazon

  • Summary: Setup: Yamaha VX479 & 5.1 Polk Audio 265rt and 255ct. Initial thoughts - the sub looks like a subwoofer for a computer setup. The bass is nice for movies but terrible for music. I constantly had to change the volume level because it was cracking at low frequencies.

Boom

  • Summary: Very solid sub, able to produce vast low-end extension down to 18 or 19 Hz but this is more pressure waves that are indetectable to all but neighbors and tooth fillings. Tail off in volume happens in the low 25 Hz range but few, if any, sources demand prolonged low end response but having said that...

Perfect match with Procinema 800 set.

D. PH, Amazon
8 February 2016
  • Summary: I bought the Prosub 1000 to add more bass in my Procinema 800 set since the Prosub 800 seemed to lack of bass and the bass was not tight when it is loud. Initially, I placed two subs (Prosub 800 and 1000) on both sides and it turned out to be worse.

Excellent sound and bass presence

Dylan, Crutchfield
2 February 2016
  • Summary: Just got this sub installed but the performance so far has been excellent. Very balanced bass and great presence in the overall home theatre, and is a bit smaller in size due the 8" size of the woofer speaker. White finish is also great for when the home decorator (wife) is involved in the decision.
  • Pros: Great sound, very nice visual design and finish.
  • Cons: None so far.

Very good addition to 5.1

GK, Crutchfield
31 October 2015
  • Summary: So far so good...only in place for about a month. Have not really tested its capabilities to fullest yet but has added a very smooth sounding low end to my other infinity speakers in 5.1 system.
  • Pros: Smooth clean low end Compact Crutchfield sales and service Convenient volume control
  • Cons: None so far

Great while it lasted

Doug M, Crutchfield
29 October 2015
  • Summary: The unit sounded great and met all of my expectations, but after about 15 months, a strange high pitched static sound started intermittently appearing. After 20 months, the sound was constant. I'll be looking at repair options soon, but this has obviously been a disappointment.
  • Pros: great sound, compact size
  • Cons: only worked for 15 months
