Overview

Our take on the Definitive Technology ProCinema 800

This system uses four of Definitive's ProMonitor 800 satellite speakers to create a spacious, enveloping soundstage. Each has one 4-1/2" 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.

Wraparound, 3D sound for tight spaces

Enjoy riveting surround sound without sacrificing lots of living room space. The ProCinema 800 features many of the same driver technologies found in Definitive's top-of-the-line models. It includes four compact satellite speakers and a center channel, plus a 300-watt powered subwoofer. Get ready for powerful, room-filling sound with movies, video games, and music.

High-tech driver design for warm, rich sound

This system uses four of Definitive's ProMonitor 800 satellite speakers to create a spacious, enveloping soundstage. Each has one 4-1/2" 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.

Smooth highs and extended mid-bass

All of the surround 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 surround speaker and on either side of the center channel sits a 4-1/2" radiator that's pressure-coupled to the midrange. These passive radiators increase the lower-midrange output of each speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure.

300-watt subwoofer for deep bass

Definitive's ProSub 800 adds the excitement of deep, rumbling lows. A front-mounted 8" woofer works together with a pressure-coupled low bass radiator on the bottom 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 300-watt amplifier and advanced crossover ensure accurate bass response. And a continuously variable low-pass crossover and a side volume control allow you to seamlessly blend the ProSub 800 in with the rest of the system.

Compact, easy-to-place speakers

The satellite speakers come with tri-lobed bases 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.

All of the speakers in this system are also sold separately. For more information or to add more speakers, check out the ProMonitor 800, ProCenter 1000, and ProSub 800.

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.

After having the Pro 600 series, I was ready to buy it again for my new theater. With Crutchfield's sale, I was able to buy the 800 series for the same price. Why not go up a level?? Very easy setup and quality sound!!

Pros: Easy setup, nice look, and Great sound!

Cons: None thus far.

5-dot-Wonderful Sound

Written by: DocOllie from Columbus, Ohio on January 9, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased with a Yamaha RX-A1040. We are still in the break-in period discussed in the manual, but right out of the box the ProCinema 800 system was significant improvement over the sound bar with sub-woofer that I had been using. After running the Yamaha speaker calibration - Wow - the speakers "disappeared" and left a nice front sound field with surround from the rear speakers. The 800's are small enough that they could be placed on the either side of the flat screen TV on the TV cabinet without the need for stands. In our 12.5 ft. x 19 ft family room these are big enough to fill the room and small enough to be inconspicuous.

Pros: Surprisingly heavy for the small size, but that is a plus since it damps out case distortion. Easy setup.

Cons:

Big Sound in a Small Package

Written by: Mike from Tennessee on December 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound much bigger than they are. I was very impressed once everything was tuned in and placed properly.

Pros: Small size Reasonable price for a high quality small speaker system Sub sounds fantastic for its size and can be hidden easily.

Cons: Sub likes to "walk" . Needs some kind of anchor system or more weight to keep it in place.

Great speaker

Written by: DaveB from Las Vegas, Nevada on November 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wonderful speakers with big sound. Liked them so much that I bought 2 of the matching bookshelf speakers. I also have to say that the support guys at Crutchfield were a great help in deciding to buy these. They were very knowledgable and did not try to sell me anything I did not want or need. They could have sold me more expensive speakers but after listening to my needs, they recommended the Def Tech 800 series speakers and I really like them.

Pros: Quality and size

Cons: None

Rich sound in a small package.

Written by: Penguin Cyclist from New Hampshire on November 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sound for the size of speakers. I have moved the speakers several times and the Audyssey calibration has managed to make the "sweet spot" better each time. While watching our flat screen TV, my wife and I always complained of not hearing conversations, now it is a delight to watch movies on Netflix since we can hear the dialogue. Listening to music has become quite a joy.

Pros: Wonderful sound. Small size.

Cons: Wiring to the Surround Sound Speakers required so some planning and trips to the hardware store since we have a very unique living room.

Husband is in love

Just gave this to my husband for his birthday - yesterday. He set everything up right away. He is in love. He has been working to tune them to his liking. Heavy speakers, that seem like they will last. They sound great; even to someone like me that has "box wine" taste in audio.

Great surround sound home theater system

Written by: LouP from South Carolina on October 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I upgraded from a Polk audio Pro system to the Pro cinema 800 speaker system. The difference was amazing! The self calibrating balance system using a microphone where you sit works very well. The surround effect is awesome. The sub woofer will shake your house. You have to adjust the center speaker treble to get crystal clear voices over all the other sounds, but that was easy with my Onkyo receiver. I had no problem with the 3 point stands on the surround speakers some reviewers complain about. I highly recommend this system. I did consider the Bose equivalent system but after listening to my brother's Bose, I find this has an overall more satisfying sound. I did not consider the Klipsch because of the larger sized speakers. The Pro cinema 800 is almost invisible in my large den which is what I wanted.

Pros: Excellent compact surround speakers with passive radiators. Superb sub woofer. Great sound all around!

Cons: None so far.

Good surround

Written by: NR from Boston, MA on October 9, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a good surround set up. Certainly better than my prior cheap HTIB, though I'm not blown away by these speakers (though to be fair they have not fully broken in yet). The sub really makes the system, it adds a lot of depth to the sound at any level; the center channel and surround speakers don't really open up unless I have the sound turned up higher than where I normally listen. When they are cranked up though, the quality is very good.

Pros:

Cons:

Good sound from relatively small speakers

Written by: Nuhuuu from California on October 5, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very clear full sound. I read a lot of reviews and went to magnolia at BB to listen to a variety of speakers. I wanted to go with Bowers and Wilkins but decided on Def Tech 800 series because of the size and sound quality. I was looking to fit speakers into my existing entertainment center. The setup was easy and speakers looked great. I purchased the matching stands sold by Def Tech and was pleased. I can no longer listen to the sound from my plasma TV alone. I have a large rectangular shaped room with vaulted ceilings and the speakers provide plenty of sound for a normal individual. I can't even turn the volume up at night or it will wake my kids up. I paired my speakers with an Denon AVR-X2100 receiver. Couldn't be happier with the flexibility of sound this combination offers.

Pros: Size, sound quality, aesthetics

Cons: That they weren't even cheaper

Rocks the house

Written by: BruceB from New York on October 4, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Compared to previous home theatre at similar cost this speaker setup has wider dynamic range with exciting subwoofer response on special effects the only problem was the need to put a small carpet under the subwoofer to keep it from walking across the floor with action films.

Pros: Dynamic range, realistic surround

Cons: None great value

Pro Cinema 800 - YES!

Written by: GeorgeD from Virginia on June 1, 2015

I got the ProCinema 800 package to replace my Polk RMs that I have had for a while. I am pushing with a Denon AVR-1912 and was never really satisfied with the quality, even though it sounded good, there was just something missing. Switched to the 800s and now I see what I was missing. Great sound and I got that brightness I was looking for. My surround sound never sounded this good. Finally I feel that my sound system is now solid. I have really enjoyed these so far. The sub does a great job and has a convenient volume on the side of the cabinet so I don't scare the dogs to death! Went in with Bose in mind, and ended up with these Definitive Technology ProCinema 800s....You feel good when you make the right decision... Travis at Crutchfield was great to deal with....

Pros: Great Sound Quality & Price

Cons: None that I have seen

Amazing

Written by: Cuzzin Bri from Montgomery, TX on May 1, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker system is the biggest bang for my buck I have ever received. Each speaker is very solid and appealing to the eyes. I paired this system with a Denon AVR S500BT, which is the bottom of the line Denon receivers, and I'm glad I didn't spend any more money than I did. Don't pass this up.

Pros: Amazing sound, easy to hook up, great looking, solid weight.

Cons: None!!!

Awesome Sound

Written by: Joe from Florida on January 9, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent full sound, from the voices to the deep, easily adjustable bass. I love the versatility to use with any receiver verses a dedicated system that cannot be expanded. Right now I am running the [offsiteUrl] channel set-up with plans to upgrade to a [offsiteUrl] channel, which my receiver is capable of a Sony STR-DN850/[offsiteUrl]. That would consist of two more back speakers and a second subwoofer.

Pros: Great price/sound/quality

Cons: The three points (feet) that which the speakers stand on, not the most stable, but absolutely acceptable. If the speakers are mounted or in a location where they would not be disturbed you are good to go.

Solid Speakers

Written by: Burak from Winchester, MA on December 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't have any high-end speakers before to compare to, however, I visited couple music stores to listen to demonstrations. Initially I had my eye on Bose home theater system, however, after reading a lot of reviews I realized I can get a very good receiver and a speaker set separately for a cheaper price. For my receiver I decided on Denon X4000 series, so far I am very happy with the performance, for speakers I had Polk Audio, Bose, Definitive Technology as my choices. I ended up choosing Definitive Technology ProCinema 800 due to overwhelmingly good reviews. I must say I do not regret my choice. We have a relatively large family room with high cathedral ceilings (~14ft) and speakers have no problem filling in the room. Even at half the volume level setting, I get amazing bang. Both for music and movies I get very good solid sound. I hear amazing detail that I used to not hear from my previous speakers. Subwoofer is very good as well, it has a separate volume control which is very convenient, at around half setting, you get very good bass, if you increase the volume, floor starts shaking which gives a movie like experience. Speakers have a glossy nice finish to them, and they feel heavy and solid. I am very happy with the performance. I would definitely recommend them.

Pros: - Solid performance for both music and movies - Powerful subwoofer - Nice finish on speakers

Cons: - Nothing so far

Def Tech 800- A really good choice

Written by: JLS from Central Florida on December 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This system provided the proper balance of detailed, nicely nuanced sound and sufficient bass response in an attractive smallish form. These replaced Bose Acoustimass 10's (acquired elsewhere) that weren't quite cutting it. When I explained our issues with the Boseto Sam at Crutchfield he suggested the Pro Cinema 800's. After several weeks, we wholeheartedly agree with the recommendation.

Pros: Very good center channel speaker produces clear and detailed dialogue. There is enough bass and surprising dynamic range from the satellites. The quality is there and the finish is nice.

Cons: None yet. Good value and great customer service

ProCinema 800

Written by: Buck from Arizona on December 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not an audiofreak but I was looking for a better system than the lower end home theater 'box' setups. The sound is excellent for my medium size room. Set up is easy but I would recommend they have information on suggested wiring, etc., instead of my having to researching the subject.

Pros: Great sound. Woofer can be easily made more dominate with the volume dial.

Cons: Can't (shouldn't) lay speakers on their sides due to design. Not a big deal as they are not huge speakers.

DEF TECH 800

Written by: michael g from New Port Richey Fl on October 7, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Sound with my Yamaha Receiver. Prior speakers just didn't do receiver justice

Pros: Ease of setup...I had previously wired the room for surround sound. Really like the volume dial on the side of the subwoofer,something more manufacturers should consider, makes tweaking very simple.

Cons: none so far, still slowly tweaking

Immersive Base; Buried Dialogue

Written by: ogret from Idaho on March 8, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The surround speakers (the 4 small ones) put out an amazing amount of bass. The system as a whole (I evaluated it with the 10" sub since the 8" happened to be DOA) sounded just like the theatre presentation of Walter Mitty that I just saw--lots of bass but muted high-mid to treble. (I assume this theatre did not have a Klipsch system.) The Definitive Technology system's bass is clean and strong and mesmerizing if you prefer movies like Men In Black (the worm in MIBII sounded like it would come up through my living room floor) or action/explosion movies. Ultimately though I could not live with the lack of higher frequencies--dialogue was muted, music was unbalanced, and for the dialogue-rich movies I prefer Klipsch turned out to be a better match. One other note: in using these with a Marantz 100w/channel receiver, one musical passage made the surrounds clip quite noticeably. I suspect to get the dynamic range movies require, big amp power would be a good idea.

Pros: Strong, clean, immersive bass. Small sized surrounds.

Cons: Muted highs. Power hungry.

ProCinema 800

Written by: Jake C. from North Kingstown, RI on November 5, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We were considering the ProCinema 600, which in itself is amazing sound from a small package, but Crutchfield's pricing allowed us to upgrade to the 800, and I'm thrilled that we did. The center channel is clear as a bell, no muddled conversation as with our last ctr chnl, and the sub is amazing. I never knew how many sound effects were broadcast during a football game until my floor started vibrating from the subwoofers (I like the rumble enough that I bought a second ProSub 800 and we run 7.2, tho honestly 7.1 would have been enough)! The sats are small enough to be inocuous but full of sound, and we're set up in a pretty large room. They sound fantastic for just listening to music too. For those who care we have an Onkyo TX-NR818 rcvr, which supplies about 135 watts/chan, which these speakers like. Definitive Tech will not dissapoint

Pros: Small attractive set packed with sound, multiple mounting options for the satellites.

Cons: Pricey compared to the competition, but I can't say for sure what the competition sounds like, so.....maybe it's not expensive.

Def techs are great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Upgrading from a Sony surround sound system. First upgraded to a Pioneer receiver which started to overpower the speakers on the highs. Replaced with def tech pro cinema 800s and they sound great. The pro cinema 1000 center channel is crystal clear. Def tech truly keeps up to their reputation. Great feedback for Cruthfield also. Butler was a great help to making my final decision. He is extremely knowledgeable and walked me through other parts that I needed for a successful setup.

Pros: great center channel speaker. Sub really compliments that satellite speakers to fully put you into a movie.

Cons: None

Great clear sound. I'm using a Yamaha RX-A820 and the sound is just so natural and clear. I was using a JBL soundbar w/sub and decided to upgrade to a 5.1 system. The difference is huge! You can't go wrong here, they have a great sound for their size.

Pros: Clear, Crisp, distortion free, highs, Deep Monster Bass

Cons: Sometimes the Sub goes to sleep and I have to wake it up by pulling the plug and plugging it back in.

These speakers produce unbelievable sound quality and clarity with a simply penetrating subwoofer unit to match. Bought these to replace my Bose system and, simply put, the ProCinema 800 system blows it out of the water. The build quality matches the exceptional sound quality, I would definitely recommend this product, the icon on the cake for a home theater system.

Pros: Sound Imaging Sound Clarity Build Quality Power

Cons: Get a rubber may if you plan to have this subwoofer on a hardwood floor, it likes to wander. Requires a powerful amplifier to get he most out of them, but very worth it!

ProCinema 800

Written by: James from Middletown, NY on April 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After looking at surround speakers for the past year I finally decided on the ProCinema 800. I had several discussions the the folks at Crutchfield and went to several retail stoes to hears varies products. I had my two choices narrowed down to the ProCinema 600 and 800 and the Bose Accoustimas 10. After several sound trial at various retailers i went with the 800's. The bose sounded great. However, at louder volumes they did not hold up as well as the 800's. I bought the ProCineam 800 from Crutchfield, arrived in 2 days, and the sound is excellent at all volumes. Great audio quality for TV and works just as well for music only applications.

Pros: Stylish and great sound from a smaller speaker. Sound quality is exceptional and the speakers have a nice heavy, durable design.

Cons: The speaker jacks are of a solid design but they are a little cramped for space when mounting with 14 gauge wire. A little pricey.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

great speaker system. I teamed it up with a denon 1913 and I couldn't be happier. when they arrived, I thought they might be too small, and kicked myself for not getting the pro 1000 setup. but once I set them up, I was very pleased. plenty of bass, clear center channel, and the front and rear speakers do the job. my LR is about 19' by 16', with an open arch leading to kitchen/dining area. extremely pleased.

Pros: great sub, center channel, and front and back speakers just fine with enuf detail. plenty of oomph, for my needs, without getting the neighbors up in arms. speakers are hefty and clearly well made.

Cons: have tried and tried, can't think of a single one.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I paired these with a Denon AVR-2312CI and the system is in a 16x18 living room. The highs, mids and lows all seem perfect w/ the subwoofer crossover set at roughly 80Hz, the suggested 120Hz wasn't quite right. The clarity is unmatched in the price range. Simply put, these ProCinema 800s incredible! Also, I wall mounted the monitors w/ Pinpoint AM30B wall mounts and they're a good bang for the buck.

Great Sound, Great Quality

Written by: Mike from OKC, OK on February 4, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this system for my mother-in-law, she had been wanting surround sound for her living room. The package arrived neatly packaged, well protected, and neatly organized in the box. The speakers have a nice piano black gloss to them and are pretty hefty for their size. They blend in perfectly with the television and on the walls, drawing any unneeded attention to them. Connected to a DENON AVR-1913, via the LFE Coaxial Output. Tuned with Audyssey.

Pros: Sounds Great, Decent High's, Good Construction, Terminal Connections are Nice.

Cons: The sub emits and overdrive rattle during some lows when the amp is turned up (above 50% volume). Unsure if it is the feet on them or if the sub doesn't like to be turned up all the way. The volume was set at about 50%, and the Amplifier was doing the rest.

These speakers blow away my bose speakers. Which i am / was a huge bose fan. I was a snob to any other brand speakers. I took a chance in order these and now I cant imagine getting anything else but Definitive Technology speakers.

Definitive Technology ProCinema 800

Written by: KenD from Dallas on January 22, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had listened to some Def Techs in a demo room years ago and was very impressed so as a good santa I bought both of my daughters a set of the Definitive Technology ProCinema 800's. One set was connected to a Yamaha and one to a Denon, both with the auto calibration feature. The speakers are very impressive and the surround effect really brings movies alive in two very different rooms. I was most surprised how musical they are. Love them and Crutchfield for their speed, support, ease and pricing.

Pros: Look good and sound great.

Cons: Not the high levels of volume I was hoping for which is understandable considering the very room friendly size. They get loud, but not Saturday night disco loud.

Everything I expected them to be

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Definitve Technology Pro Cinema 800 is everything that I expected this surround system to be. We have a small-medium size media room and did not need a system to overwhelm the space physically or acoustically. After much deliberation and comparison these appeared to be the best small satellite speakers, the best center channel speaker (Pro 1000) and a more than adequate sub without going to a larger floor standing system. The word seamless has never communicated much for me, but I must say that seamless best describes this system's sound quality. Nothing over powers, the system simply fills the space with crisp, distinct, and colorful sound from FM, CD/DVD, or TV sources. Power for the system comes from an Onkyo TX-SR606, and is connected to a 52" Sony, Verizon FIOS and a PS3. I mounted the front L/R and surrounds on the matched DT Pro 600/800 stands and have found it to be a quality and unobtrusive combination. As always was Crutchfield's outstanding customer service with sooner than anticipated delivery and not often seen customer follow up.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound very good in our family room (14x19) and the sound flows very well through a 6 foot wide archway into our adjacent dining room and kitchen area. I researched a lot of speakers and these definitely work well. I little pricey in my estimation but they do work very well for us and they blend into the surroundings very well. So far very satisified.

Listen Up! these are great speakers

Written by: Joe C. from Huntingtown, Md. on August 27, 2010

First, let me rate Crutchfields, I have been researching home theater equipment for a long time. I went to the local big box store, and the staff weren't very helpful. I had done business with Crutchfields before and decided to contact them. I spoke with Paul, a salesperson, a VERY knowledgable person. He explained everything I needed to know about the units I was interested in and finally helped me make a decision about these ProCinema 800 speakers. The price was a little steep but I took his advise and I am happy I did. These speakers sound fantastic and work well with my ONKYO TX-SR08 and the Samsung Blu Ray player. Once I listened to these speakers I was sure I made the right decision. Ask for Paul you won't be sorry you did.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been shopping for upgraded speakers for a while and found myself completely indecisive between bookshelf, floor standing and satellite arrangements. After speaking with my Crutchfield advisor, who essentially told me that a floor standing based 5.1 system with the fidelity of the ProCinema 800 would cost well above my budget, I decided to take a chance. I received and installed everything yesterday, and I am still marveling at the incredible sound quality. My 12 x 17 room (TV on the long wall) is completely enveloped in sound, and when seated in or near the sweet spot, the imaging is just incredible. When watching movies, you hear everything, and sound seems to come from everywhere. With music, you get an equally satisfying experience with incredibly accurate sound and a kind of smoothness all the way up and down the audio spectrum. The combination of these satellites and outstanding sub offers huge, intensely clear/accurate sound with plenty of volume, bass and a seamlessness between sub and satellite that I never thought possible. These speakers would easily handle a larger room, and even my relatively modest receiver does a wonderful job of driving this system. Worried about being satisfied with a sat/sub system? Fear not. Technology is a beautiful thing. This system is absolutely incredible and I do not miss all of the speaker surface area I thought I'd need to keep me satisfied.

Cons:

Best Satellite System I've ever heard. Crutchfields best yet.

Written by: Todd from Newnan Ga on October 1, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been wanting Def Techs since I heard the BP2000's 15yrs ago. This system doesn't pound like those BP's but plays very loud at very high quality, overall volume is nearly painful in a 15x15 room. Bass extension is a lower frequency and tighter than the 15" woofers of my old floor speakers , bass volume starts to fall apart at about 75% volume, louder than any receiver should be pushing. I am looking to add another Def Tech sub to increase the volume of bass. Quality is great however a quality floor standing system for the same price will easliy outperform, but that defeats the whole satellite premise now doesn't it. The center/satellites are things of beauty to look at, construction quality is first rate, they weigh twice what they look, the bass radiators add alot to the sound. The size is a perfect compromise of wall mountable/yet amazing sound. If your're looking at a satellite system you have to hear these, they're not cheap, Definitives never are, but worth list price. I considered Bose, I have brothers and a sister with Bose LS systems, these are easily better. I gave them 4 stars because they need a little more bass volume, other wise they're perfect.

System Features

5.1-Channel Speaker System: The Definitive Technology ProCinema 800 System is a 6-piece home theater system incorporating 4 identical easy to place satellite speakers for front and surround channels, a matching center-channel loudspeaker, and a robust powered subwoofer. The system's components incorporate many of Definitive's technologies including BDSS drivers, pure aluminum dome tweeters, planar pressure coupled mid/bass radiators, and a 300-Watt powered subwoofer for clear, high-definition home theater sound quality.

Pressure Coupled Radiator Design: The ProCinema 800 satellite speakers and center-channel provide clear, high-definition sound by pressure-coupling Definitive's exclusive BDSS technology 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 life-like sound.

BDSS Technology: Definitive Technology's Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) driver 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 ProCenter 1000 features 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 voice coil is also lengthened to increase 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.

Break-In Period: The ProCinema 800 Home Speaker System 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 Speaker: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 satellite loudspeakers utilize state-of-the-art components (BDSS drivers coupled with a pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiators, pure aluminum dome tweeters, uniphase crossover networks, and non-resonant PolyStone cabinets with low diffraction construction) in order to achieve the most lifelike sound possible in your listening room.

Drivers: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 satellite loudspeakers each feature a 4-1/2" BDSS driver coupled to a 4-1/2" pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, and a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Non-Resonant PolyStone Cabinet: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 satellite 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 features a removable cloth grille.

Connections: The ProMonitor 800 satellite loudspeakers are equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 satellite loudspeakers may be placed on a stand or shelf, or mounted on the wall or ceiling. The ProMonitor 800 features a 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 (ProStand, sold separately) or to wall-mount the speaker. The ProMonitor 800 can 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 manufacturer's bracket (sold separately) to hang the speaker on a wall or ceiling.

Note: There is a insert plug included which covers the hole in the bottom of the speaker which you will see after you remove the pedestal foot when wall-mounting the speaker.

Placement: When used as front speakers, the ProMonitor 800s 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 800s 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.

Center Channel Speaker

Center-Channel: 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 ProCenter 1000 loudspeaker 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 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.

Non-Resonant PolyStone Cabinet: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 uses 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 features a removable cloth grille.

Connections: The ProCenter 1000 is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting: 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.

Placement: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 can be placed above or below your television.

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.

Powered Subwoofer

Powered Subwoofer: The Definitive Technology ProSub 800 is an advanced state-of-the-art technology powered subwoofer with a built-in high-power, high-current amplifier and sophisticated electronic crossover, in combination with an active front-firing 8-inch high excursion woofer and 8-inch bottom-mounted passive radiator for massive bass with superior speed, control, and detail. The Definitive Technology ProSub 800 is a compact, high quality, powered subwoofer that can be used in your home theater or music speaker system.

Passive Radiator Design: The ProSub 800 features a 300-watt (RMS) amplifier driving a high-excursion 8-inch front-mounted direct-radiating woofer that is pressure-coupled to an 8-inch low-bass passive radiator on the bottom of the enclosure. The net radiating area of the ProSub 800 is 27% greater than a single 10 inch woofer but with better speed, pitch definition, and control.

PowerField Technology Amplifier: The ProSub 800 incorporates Definitive's proprietary PowerField technology, by which the amplifier is specifically engineered in conjunction with the driver for optimum load matching and power transfer characteristics. The Definitive ProSub 800 powered subwoofer incorporates a unique, patented, digitally-coupled infinite power source amplifier with a high-current direct coupled power supply and discrete MOSFET output devices to ensure perfect high-definition resolution and reproduction of the most dynamic program material and demanding sub-bass transients. Construction quality is absolutely state-of-the-art, with only the highest quality components used including mil-spec glass epoxy circuit boards and precision resistors and capacitors for many years of faultless superior performance.

High-Definition Subwoofer: The powerful, high-definition 8" polymer subwoofer driver is specifically engineered by Definitive Technology to deliver rock-solid low distortion bass, reaching down to the lowest subsonic frequencies (20-150Hz), with superior transient response. The special ultra-stiff, low-mass cone (for super-fast transient response) is joined to a specially formulated surround and long-throw voice coil and spider. The ultra-rigid basket is engineered to hold the woofer's massive magnet structure and large voice coil in absolute alignment. The high temperature voice coil is made of aluminum wound with triple insulated ultra-pure copper wire and baked in epoxy for increased power handling.

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 ProSub 800 powered subwoofers utilizes a monocoque cabinet, which has been specifically engineered to be totally inert and vibration free, to ensure you of pure sonic reproduction. Monocoque means that the cabinet is of a unitized construction where all panels are permanently joined together into one solid structure. The cabinet walls themselves are high-density medite fused together by space-age polymer adhesives. The front and rear baffles are extra thick and the cabinet, itself, incorporates multiple internal braces to ensure total solidity.

Controls: A complete array of controls allows the ProSub 800 to be perfectly integrated with any stereo or multi-channel audio system, and tuned for optimum performance in any room.

  • Volume Control: The ProSub 800 features a convenient front-side-mounted volume control that makes adjustments fast and easy. This precision level control allows you to perfectly adjust the volume of the subwoofer to match your system and room as well as to fulfill your own personal sonic preferences.
  • Variable Low-Pass Crossover: The Definitive Technology ProSub 800 powered subwoofer has a continuously adjustable low-pass filter control which allows you to choose a roll-off of from 40 to 150 Hz for the high end of the subwoofer. This unique "dual stage" roll-off (24dB/oct) is extremely steep which ensures perfect blending with your main speakers as well as eliminating unwanted midrange from the subwoofer. This is especially important because it gives you much greater flexibility in placing your subwoofer in your room without being able to hear where it is located.

Connections: The Definitive Technology ProSub 800 powered subwoofer has a complete range of inputs and outputs to allow easy and effective hookup to any system. The ProSub 800 has a separate direct-in LFE low-level input (which bypasses the crossover network). Speaker level inputs are provided in case you do not have a subwoofer output.

  • LFE Input: The Definitive Technology powered subwoofer 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.
  • Speaker Level In: The Speaker Level inputs (binding posts) are designed to be used on receivers or amplifiers that do not incorporate any RCA type subwoofer outputs. If your receiver is equipped with an RCA type subwoofer outputs, these speaker level inputs should not be utilized.
  • Speaker Level Output: The ProSub 800 also features speaker level outputs (binding posts), so you can connect your front (main speakers) through the powered subwoofer. The ProSub 800 has a built-in speaker level high-pass crossover preset at 80 Hz (6dB/oct).

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.

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 non. It will automatically turn off with the powered subwoofer, a little while after the signal is discontinued.

Protection Circuits: The Definitive Technology ProSub 800 features two protection circuits that ensure that the subwoofer can never be overdriven.

Integrated/Adjustable Feet: The ProSub 800 features four integrated feet with rubber tips so you can place it securely and safely on your home's floor. Each foot's height is adjustable to help you place the powered sub on an uneven surface.

Placement: The Definitive Technology powered subwoofer has been designed to operate at frequencies generally below 150 Hz. Because low-frequency information in this range essentially is non-directional, your subwoofer can be located anywhere in your listening room that is mot convenient. Also the continuously variable low-pass filter operate at a very fast roll-off, 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 the wall.
  • 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.

I am using Denion AVR 2100W 95 watts per channel. Not sure about 50 watts per channel. I do know you can't go wrong with the procinema 800 speaker system best speaker system I ever owned. [ Stephen  Jan 11, 2016 ]
My opinion, no it wouldn't be. I would go with an Onkyo TX NR737 if it was my choice. [ TROY  Jan 10, 2016 ]
No problem, but you need to buy the wall brackets which Crutchfield sells. I used them to mount the speakers on ceiling beams. They look and sound great! [ Frederick  Nov 13, 2015 ]
Yes you can hang them on walls. Definitive Technology and PinPoint both make mounts that will work with these speakers. The wall mounts must be anchored to studs because the speakers are to heavy for drywall anchors. [ DAVID  Nov 13, 2015 ]
I have these very same speakers and there is a hole on the back to hang on a screw, which is what I did. hope this helps. [ THOMAS E  Nov 13, 2015 ]
No, they have a key hole slot in the back to hang them from a screw or nail. I opted to use Definitive's Pro 80 mounts for mine so that I could adjust them inward toward the center of the room. [ BRANDON  Nov 13, 2015 ]
Very easy with a satellite speaker mount kit. Can't remember who makes the kit. [ Joel  Nov 13, 2015 ]
No, not at all. I used Definitive Technology Pro-Mount 90. Just drill the wall, use some anchors and it is very easy. [ BURAK  Nov 13, 2015 ]
Not at all. I have it mounted on the wall. I bought the mount from crutchfield works great [ RONY  Nov 13, 2015 ]
I purchased wall mount for surround speakers, so yes they can be mounted. But, you need to find stud on the drywall as these are bulky. It may be possible to install on Drywall but I didn't try. [ Bhuwan  Nov 13, 2015 ]
These speakers play well providing nice detail at low volumes as well as higher volumes. [ DAVID  Nov 13, 2015 ]
I have had my speakers at all different volumes and nothing gets lost. I really like the center channel speaker that comes with this set since it is from the ProCinema 1000 series. The dialogue is always crystal clear. I find that with these speakers I can put the volume at one setting on a movie compared to my older speakers I would constantly be changing the volume between action scenes and talking scenes. [ MARK A  Jan 26, 2014 ]
I had the same concern. Sounds crisp and clear. It also depends on the receiver make sure you pair it with a high quality one [ RONY  Jan 26, 2014 ]
Powered with a decent amp/receiver, these speakers sound excellent at low volume. Watching tv at night with the volume down fairly low, the sound is clear and dialogue is clear and easy to understand. No complaints in any aspect with this speaker system. [ LUKE  Jan 26, 2014 ]
The ProCinema sounds excellent at any volume. Very happy with these speakers [ ORIN  Jan 26, 2014 ]
