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
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
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.
- 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'
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.
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.
- 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.
- 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
- 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
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
