Definitive SuperCube 8000
13 March 2014
Summary: I've had the sc8000 for less than a month and am very busy so I'm still within the "break in phase" of this amazing sub. I just took my 9yr old to see the lego movie yesterday on the big screen, and for the first time ever, the theater sound reminded me of home.
Pros: Massive deep bass. Great for low volume, late night listening with adjustable volume. It's got so much power the rest of my system doesnt have to be cranked to get good output from the sub. The remote controll is priceless.
Cons: It's very elegant looking but that doesn't help its perfomance. Strip the cosmetic add ons and let this deep voiced mini monster shake not just vibrate you to your core.
Summary: Just wasn't what I expected it to be. Maybe it was just the acoustics in my room but, it just couldn't compete with the down firing 12 I have!! I did move it several times but ended up returning it!!
Pros: Nice features strong built cabinet and pretty
Cons: would flash clp when cranking on it and nothing in the book for what it meant. Didn't perform to my expectations
Summary: I'm the proud owner of a PF11500. It's about 20 years old. Not replacing but adding SC8000 to my already awesome home theater. A Month ago the power supply went on my old sub and definitive repaired it. After all this time they still care about their customer. Try that elsewhere.
Pros: Great performance and quality construction.
Cons: My 20 year old sub has no remote. Doesn't need it anyway. Wait, that's not a con.
Excerpt: What can you say? It's 1500 watts of raw power in a very compact unit. I retired my old Powerfield 15, with a 210 watt amp. I thought it was awesome! The separate remote comes in very handy when you are fine tuning the unit.
Summary: I have tried both HSU and Velodyne. HSU doesn't come on all the time and sounds a little heavy. The Velodyne was junk, stopped working after a couple years with little use. This subwoofer sounds better , and is easier to incorporate into my system without it overpowering everything with too much...
Summary: My room size is 14'Wx22'Dx8'H. For home theater use, the SC8000 is just right for my room size in my opinion. I would think it would be sufficient for much larger rooms as well. Passed over the SC6000 because I thought a 9" subwoofer would be worked too hard.
Pros: Great LFE Sound Effects. Relatively small size. Solid, High Quality Construction. Remote Control! 1500W Power supply included! $200 mfg instant rebate. Plenty of input options. Crutchfield's service policy; Thanks Crutchfield!
Cons: A tad pricey. Manufacturer packaging alone is insufficient for the 72lb subwoofer.
Summary: Replaced an older and much larger Velodyne with accelerometer control. The SC8000 is a definite step up in responsiveness and much better definition/musicality (subjectively speaking). Objectively, the SC8000 is putting out ~107db at 20hz and a measured +/- 3db down to 22hz in the Grand Room.
Pros: Thunderous low-end with incredible responsiveness.
Summary: Pound for pound an excellent sub woofer. This supercube is an excellent addition to my home theater. I did a lot of research on this product and this fits my needs perfectly. Definitive really hit a homerun with this one. It enhances every movie that I have pitted it against.
Pros: extremely tight clean bass. Technological breakthrough in such a small form factor. Remote control enhances set up and eases control for movie/music applications.
Summary: Received this sub and was very pleased on the appearance Very easy to install and waited to review this til it was broke in. Sounds Awsome. Very happy. Can't wait to add more stuff to experience the full sound of my system:)
Summary: Outstanding speaker! Replaced their PF-18 and this one sounds way better, much more responsive. The best thing about this speaker is Definitive's customer service. I want to thank them for restoring my confidence in America. Their customer service was "way" beyond exceptional.
