Big performance from compact speakers

Experience high-performance home theater sound from a compact, room-friendly system. Definitive Technology's ProCinema 2000 includes four satellite speakers, a center channel, and a 650-watt powered subwoofer. This system uses some of Definitive's best speaker technologies, so you'll experience lots of impact and convincing realism with all your movies, video games, and music. It's a great way to complement your crisp HDTV picture with rich, enveloping sound.


High-tech driver design for sonic precision

Speaker

Definitive's BDSS technology allows these speakers to deliver exceptional sound.

This system uses four of Definitive's ProMonitor 1000 satellite speakers to create a spacious, wraparound soundstage. Each has one 5-1/4" midrange that uses Definitive's Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) driver design, which places a surround on both the outer and inner edge of the speaker cone for greater linear excursion and exceptional clarity. This technology helps the system deliver big sound using smaller speakers. The ProCenter 1000 center channel included with this system uses two 4-1/2" BDSS midranges for crystal-clear dialogue and true-to-life sound effects.

Radiator

Passive radiators help expand the frequency range of the satellite speakers.

Smooth highs and extended mid-bass

All of the satellite speakers and the center channel have a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter that produces extended highs, revealing nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. At the top of each satellite speaker and on either side of the center channel sits a passive radiator that's pressure-coupled to the midrange driver. The passive radiators increase the lower-midrange output of each speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure.

Supercube 2000 passive radiators

Passive radiators on the sides of the subwoofer extend its bass output.

Ultra-compact 650-watt subwoofer for deep bass

Definitive's amazingly small SuperCube 2000 adds the excitement of deep, rumbling low frequencies yet takes up very little floor space. A front-mounted 7-1/2" woofer works together with two pressure-coupled low bass radiators on the sides of the enclosure to produce hard-hitting bass. Rigid baskets and a non-resonant cabinet make sure that you hear clean bass without sound-muddying vibrations. A built-in 650-watt amplifier really shows off this sub's tight, accurate response. A continuously variable low-pass crossover and volume control allow you to seamlessly blend the SuperCube 2000 in with the rest of the system.


Compact, easy-to-place speakers

The satellite speakers feature an integrated tripod base and the center channel comes with a leveler foot so you can easily place the speakers on shelves. You can also mount them on your walls using the keyhole slots for out-of-the-way placement. Connect the sub and tuck it under a table or in a corner, and you're ready to go.

Did you know?
Your new speakers will probably sound better after several weeks of use than they do right out of the box. That's because the material surrounding the woofers will loosen up, allowing the drivers to move more fully. Definitive Technology estimates a break-in period of 24 to 48 hours of playback before the speakers will deliver optimum sound quality. For more information and helpful tips, check out this article from Definitive's website about conditioning your speakers.

Why choose a pre-matched speaker system?

Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics — that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer — a must-have for high-impact bass.

Satellite & Center Speakers

Satellite Speaker Features: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 loudspeakers utilize state-of-the-art components (BDSS driver coupled with a pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, a pure aluminum dome tweeter, a uniphase crossover network, and a non-resonant PolyStone cabinet with low diffraction construction) in order to achieve the most lifelike sound possible in your listening room. The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000s feature a 5-1/4" BDSS driver coupled to a 5-1/4" pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, and a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Center Channel Speaker: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 video-shielded center-channel speaker utilizes state-of-the-art components (BDSS driver coupled with a pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, a pure aluminum dome tweeter, a uniphase crossover network, and a non-resonant PolyStone cabinet with low diffraction construction) in order to achieve the most lifelike sound possible in your listening room. As much as 75% of a movie's soundtrack is played by the center-channel loudspeaker making it arguably the most important speaker in a home theater system. The Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 features two 4-1/2" BDSS driver coupled to two side-firing 4-1/2" pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiators, and a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Pressure Coupled Radiator Design: The ProMonitor loudspeakers provides clear, high-definition sound by pressure-coupling Definitive's exclusive BDSS technology driver to an equal-sized mid/bass radiator cleverly placed on the top of the speaker. This technique doubles the lower-midrange radiating area of the speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure. The result is a warm and life-like sound.

BDSS Technology: Definitive Technology's Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) drivers offers a wide-bandwidth accurate frequency response, broad dispersion, low distortion, and detail retrieval; so you hear more the music with greater accuracy and enjoyment. BDSS drivers incorporate the following design features.

  • Balanced Double Surrounds: The speaker's' balanced double surrounds support the cone at two points to provide better mechanical stability for longer, more linear excursion, and improved damping to suppress parasitic cone resonance.
  • Mineral-Filled Polymer Cone: The loudspeakers feature a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone engineered using sophisticated 3D modeling techniques for wide range performance.
  • Waveguide: The cone's integrated waveguide smoothes off-axis response for broad, even dispersion and better imaging.
  • High Temperature Voice Coil: The driver's high temperature, oversized, lightweight vented voice coil offers improved power handling and quick transient response. The Lengthened voice coil also offers increased linearity and lower distortion.
  • Magnet Structure: The driver's magnetic system is optimized by finite element analysis to maximize magnetic flux in the gap for high efficiency and linear excursion.
  • Die-Cast Alloy Basket: The die-cast alloy basket minimizes ringing and vibration while the open area minimizes back wave reflection.

Non-Resonant PolyStone Cabinet: The Definitive Technology loudspeakers use a non-resonant PolyStone cabinet with low diffraction construction. The speaker cabinet is available in a high-gloss black or white finish. The speaker's cabinet feature a removable cloth grille.

Connections: Each speaker is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting:

  • Satellite Speakers: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 loudspeakers may be placed on a stand or shelf, or mounted on the wall or ceiling. The ProMonitor 1000 features a pedestal foot which allows it to fit securely and safe on a stand or shelf. The attached pedestal foot can be removed to mount the speaker to Definitive Technology's matching speaker stand (ProStand, sold separately) or to wall-mount the speaker. The ProMonitor 1000 can also be wall-mounted using the rear-panel keyhole slot. In addition, there is a 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the back of the speaker so you can use Definitive Technology's optional mounting bracket (ProMount 80, sold separately), or other manufacture bracket (sold separately) to hang the speaker on a wall or ceiling.
  • Center Channel: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 can be mounted on a stand or shelf; or even wall-mounted. The ProCenter 1000 has two threaded inserts (1/4"-20) on the back, which can be used with a pair of optional Definitive Technology ProMount brackets (735PMT80, sold separately) or other manufacture wall-mount bracket (sold separately) to mount the ProCenter 1000 on the wall.

Angle Adjustment: The ProCenter 1000 loudspeaker has a simple built-in device which allows you to adjust the vertical angle of the speaker. There is an adjustable rubber-foot on the bottom-rear of the speaker cabinet. when you set the center-channel speaker down, the speaker will lean back and rest on this foot. By varying how far you screw in-and-out the foot, you can adjust the vertical angle of the speaker. It is recommended that you aim the center-speaker so that it aims directly towards the height of the listeners' ears.

Break-In Period: The loudspeakers will sound good right out of the box; however, an extended break-in period of 20-40 hours or more of playing is required to reach full performance capability. The break-in period allows the suspensions to work in and results in full bass, a more open midrange, and smoother high frequency reproduction.

Powered Subwoofer

Ultra-Compact Design: The SuperCube 2000 measures only 10.25" (w) x 10.8125" (h) x 12.625" (d), and weighs only 25 lbs. Measurements include rubber-feet and cables.

650 Watt Class D Amplifier: The SuperCube 2000 is powered by a 650-watt (RMS) class D amplifier. The result is high-definition bass performance extending effortlessly down to 20 Hz.

Passive Radiator Design: The SuperCube 2000 features a 7.5" high-definition long-throw woofer pressure coupled to two side-firing 7.5" Ultra Low Bass Radiators. The total piston area is greater than a 12-inch diameter woofer but with far greater speed, musicality, and control than a single large diameter woofer could deliver.

Non-Resonant Cabinet: The cabinet of a loudspeaker plays a large part in its sonic performance. Resonance and vibration can add unwanted distortion as well as drain away important energy from the system. The Definitive Technology SuperCube 3000 powered subwoofer utilizes a wood-composite cabinet with internal bracing, that has been specifically engineered to be totally inert and vibration free, to ensure you of pure sonic reproduction.

Controls:

  • Subwoofer Level: The Definitive Technology SuperCube 2000 features a rear-mounted volume control. This control is used to raise or lower the output level of the subwoofer in relation to the other speaker in your system.
  • Auto Turn-On Circuit: The powered subwoofer has a special power circuit which automatically turns the powered subwoofer on when a signal is fed to the loudspeaker and turns it off when there is no signal present, so it does not require an on-off switch. You may hear a pop from the speaker when the amp powers up or powers down; this is normal.
  • LED Indicator: The red LED on the back panel of the powered subwoofer will light up when a signal is sensed and the amplifier turns on. It will automatically turn off with the powered subwoofer, a little while after the signal is discontinued.

Connections:

  • LFE Subwoofer Input: The Definitive Technology SuperCube 2000 is equipped with a LFE mono-Subwoofer RCA input. Simply connect the powered subwoofer to your A/V receiver's LFE mono-Subwoofer RCA output via a mono-Subwoofer cable. Because the SuperCube 2000 is only equipped with an LFE input, it does not feature a built-in crossover control. You will use the subwoofer output crossover in your A/V receiver to set the low-pass crossover frequency for the SuperCube 2000. The SuperCube 2000 does not feature stereo RCA inputs/outputs or speaker-level inputs/outputs.
  • Detachable AC Power Cord: The SuperCube 2000 includes a detachable 7' AC power cord. The SuperCube 2000 must be plugged into a 120V, 60Hz electrical socket (use an unswitched outlet if possible).

Interchangeable Feet: The SuperCube 2000 comes with 4 rubber-feet and 4 spiked-feet for safe and secure placement of the powered subwoofer on your carpet or hardwood floors. The spiked feet add 0.125" of height to the powered subwoofer.

Placement: There are some general guidelines that you should use when locating the powered subwoofer.

  • For best results, place the subwoofer on the same side of the room as your front speakers.
  • For maximum output, the subwoofer should be placed in a corner or against the wall, leaving approximately 2" to 4" clearance between the powered subwoofer and the wall(s).
  • Corner placement will increase the powered subwoofer's output.
  • An acoustic effect called "standing waves" or "room modes" may cause uneven bass at various locations throughout the room. This phenomenon is a function of the dimensions of the room and not due to the design of the powered subwoofer.

Protection Circuit: To prevent accidental damage to the subwoofer from overdriving the system, the SuperCube 2000 features an internal overload protection circuit, which will turn the subwoofer off or down when overdriven or overheated and will then resume normal operation after a few minutes.
