4 Matching Satellite Speakers
5.1 Channel Speaker System: The Definitive Technology ProCinema 400
Home Theater Speaker System is designed to deliver equally superb sound with
music or movies. The ProCinema 400 provides clear, high-definition sound from
tiny, easy to place satellite speakers which can be shelf or wall mounted. The
ProCinema 400 Home Theater Speaker System includes 4 matching satellite
speakers, 1 center-channel speaker, and a powered subwoofer.
Pressure Coupled Radiator Design: The ProCinema 400
satellite speakers and center-channel provide clear, high-definition sound by
pressure-coupling drivers to equal-sized mid/bass radiators cleverly placed on the outside of the cabinet. This technique doubles the lower-midrange radiating area of the
speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure. The result is a warm and
Break-In Period: The ProCinema Home Theater Speaker 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.
4 Matching Satellite Speakers
Matching Satellite Speakers: The Definitive Technology
ProMonitor 400 includes four matching satellite loudspeakers. The ProMonitor 400 satellite loudspeakers
provide the front and rear speaker channels for your home theater system.
Drivers: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 400 satellite
speakers feature a
3-1/2" polymer midrange driver coupled to a 3-1/2" pressure-driven lower-midrange radiator, and a
3/4" pure aluminum dome tweeter.
High Gloss Black Cabinet: The speaker cabinet is available in a high-gloss black finish. The speaker's cabinet
also features a removable cloth grille.
Connections: The ProMonitor 400 satellite speakers are
equipped with a pair of heavy-duty, spring-post speaker terminals to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Because the speaker terminals are recessed, you can only use bare wire or flex
Mounting: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 400 satellite
speakers may be placed on a stand or shelf, or mounted on the wall or
ceiling. The ProMonitor 400 features a detachable pedestal foot which allows it to fit
securely and safely on a stand or shelf. The attached pedestal foot can be
removed to mount the speaker to Definitive Technology's matching speaker stand
(735PSTN68B, sold separately) or to wall-mount the speaker. The ProMonitor 400 can
be wall-mounted using the rear-panel keyhole slot and included simple-mount
brackets. 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 (735PMT80, sold separately), or other
manufacturer's bracket (sold separately) to hang the speaker on a wall or ceiling.
Placement: When used as front speakers, the ProMonitor 400s
should usually be placed 6 to 8 feet apart and kept away from the side walls and
corners. When used as rear speakers, take care never to locate the speakers
forward of the listeners. The ProMonitor 400s may be angled in towards the
listening position or left parallel with the rear wall according to your
personal listening taste. Normally, angling the speakers in so that they point
directly at the listeners will result in more detail and greater clarity.
Note: The four matching satellite speakers are not video shielded.
Center-Channel: 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 ProCenter 400
is ideal for use as a center-channel speaker in conjunction with Dolby Surround
Sound Pro-Logic and Dolby Digital decoding.
Drivers: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 400 features
two 3-1/2" polymer midrange drivers coupled to two side-firing 3-1/2" pressure-driven

has a low-level direct LFE input for Dolby Digital soundtracks, which
bypasses the crossover network. If you are connecting the subwoofer to an AV
receiver without a dedicated subwoofer or LFE preamp output, but does
features a stereo RCA output, you will need to use a stereo RCA cable along
with an RCA Y-adapter.
Note: There are no speaker-level inputs or outputs.
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.

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

ensuring great performance wherever you place the subwoofer. There are, however,
some general rules that you should bear in mind when locating the powered sub.
- For maximum output the subwoofer should be placed in a corner or against
- Corner placement will increase the subwoofer's efficiency, which in turn
will increase your system's maximum output and improve the dynamic
capability of the subwoofer.
