Reviews and Problems with Definitive Technology ProSub 800
Showing 1-10 of 220
Excellent sound and bass presence
1 week ago
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.
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
Crutchfield sales and service
Convenient volume control
Summary: This unit is well built and quite compact, considering it's housing a 10" driver and a 10" passive radiator. As for the performance, let me just say that this unit was at half power when I played it first, and my hardwood floors started creaking as if an earthquake was happening.
Pros: Excellent performance. Construction feels solid. Very compact if compared to others in this product class. You would never need anything bigger or more expansive than this for the average living room.
Cons: The volume button on the side is a bit weird, I'm not crazy about it. It's low profile enough to not protrude, but it faces against my couch and isn't easily reachable because of this. Not that you use this often, anyways.
Summary: First time buying a Definitive Technologies sub. This was recommended by Crutchfield. In my experience with their sales people, if they recommend it, It's good. This was bought to replace an old Infinity 12 inch 250watt sub that still really kicks, but this Pro Sub kicks its butt.
Pros: Great sub for the money.
Cons: Wish I would have tried Definitive technologies before
Summary: This sub is an excellent value, comparing favorably to other subs that I own from Velodyne, PSB, etc., that cost much more. I bought it for my wife's desktop system to complement the Def Tech Incline speakers (which are awesome, btw, but are discontinued ;-( I love how this sub has the sub volume...
Pros: Great value for the money! Nice sound. Excellent for a desktop system. The sub volume control is easy to reach.
Cons: The only downside is that the user manual wasn't very well done, but hey, it's a subwoofer, how much instruction do you need?
Excerpt: My M&K VX-7 finally bit the dust after 21 years of faithful service. Time to buy a sub without blowing up my budget.After reading endless reviews I whittled it down to Velodyne Impact 10 and the Definitive Prosub 1000 since these subs have high level speaker wire connections.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This sub is powerful, easy to set up, fits in a smalllish space. I chose it for the low frequencies ( down to 20 hz) because I wanted the health benefits from the frequency of 20 hz to come up from the wood floors.
Summary: I purchased this sub to go along with two Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800's. The sub provides plenty of power and looks great in white. Paired with the speakers if gives a nice full sound at a great price.
