Definitive's compact ProCinema 600 6-piece home theater speaker system delivers excellent sound quality that'll impress your friends and family on your next movie night. This system features many of the same driver technologies found in Definitive's top-of-the-line models. It includes four small satellite speakers and a center channel, plus a 250-watt powered subwoofer for thrilling surround sound.

High-tech driver design for warm, rich sound

This system uses four of Definitive's ProMonitor 600 satellite speakers to create a spacious, enveloping soundstage. Each has one 3-1/4" 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 600 center channel uses two 3-1/4" BDSS midranges for crystal-clear dialogue and true-to-life sound effects.

Radiator

Passive radiators help expand the speakers' frequency range.

Smooth highs and extended mid-bass

All five speakers 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 3-1/4" passive radiator cone that's pressure-coupled to the midrange woofer. These passive radiators increase the lower-midrange output of each speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure.

Sub radiator

A passive radiator on the bottom of the subwoofer extends its bass output.

250-watt subwoofer for deep bass

Definitive's ProSub 600 adds the excitement of deep, rumbling bass. 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 250-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 600 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.

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.


Great set of speakers. Really handle the power from the surround receiver. Much better than the Sonys I used to have.

System Overview

5.1 Channel Speaker System: The Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 Home Theater Speaker System is designed to deliver equally superb sound with music or movies. The ProCinema 600 provides clear, high-definition sound from tiny, easy to place satellite speakers which can be shelf or wall mounted. The ProCinema 600 Home Theater Speaker System includes 4 matching satellite speakers, 1 center channel speaker, and a powered subwoofer.

Pressure Coupled Radiator Design: The ProCinema 600 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 600 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.

Available Colors: The Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 is available in a high-gloss black or white finish.

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 600 matching satellite loudspeaker 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. The ProMonitor 600 satellite loudspeakers provide the front and rear speaker channels for your home theater system.

Drivers: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 600 satellite speakers feature a 3-1/4" BDSS driver coupled to a 3-1/4" pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, and a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Non-Resonant PolyStone Cabinet: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 600 satellite speakers use a non-resonant PolyStone cabinet with low diffraction construction.

Connections: The ProMonitor 600 satellite speakers are equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting: The Definitive Technology ProMonitor 600 loudspeakers may be placed on a stand or shelf, or mounted on the wall or ceiling. The ProMonitor 600features 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 600can 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.

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 600s 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 600s 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 600 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 600 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 600 features two 3-1/4" BDSS driver coupled to two side-firing 3-1/4" pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiators, and a 1" pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Non-Resonant PolyStone Cabinet: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 600 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 600 is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 600 can be mounted on a stand or shelf; or even wall-mounted. The ProCenter 600 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 600 on the wall.

Placement: The Definitive Technology ProCenter 600 can be placed above or below your television.

Angle Adjustment: The ProCenter 600 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 600 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 600 is a compact, high quality, powered subwoofer that can be used in your home theater or music speaker system.

Passive Radiator Design: The ProSub 600 features a 250-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 600 is 27% greater than a single 10 inch woofer but with better speed, pitch definition, and control.

PowerField Technology Amplifier: The ProSub 600 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 600 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 (22-150Hz), 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 600 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 600 to be perfectly integrated with any stereo or multi-channel audio system, and tuned for optimum performance in any room.

  • Volume Control: The ProSub 600 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 600 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 600 powered subwoofer has a complete range of inputs and outputs to allow easy and effective hookup to any system. The ProSub 600 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 600 also features speaker level outputs (binding posts), so you can connect your front (main speakers) through the powered subwoofer. The ProSub 600 has a built-in speaker level high-pass crossover preset at 100 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 on. It will automatically turn off with the powered subwoofer, a little while after the signal is discontinued.

Protection Circuits: The Definitive Technology ProSub 600 features two protection circuits that ensure that the subwoofer can never be overdriven.

Integrated/Adjustable Feet: The ProSub 600 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.

7 questions already asked

Hello! If you choose to go with wireless speakers, they will require a power supply of some kind (batt. or a/c). I opted for the definitve technology speakers n sub with the Dannon and could not be happier. Easy set, superior sound in a pretty large room w/open floor plan. I would def recommend. [ Kristopher  Oct 25, 2016 ]
When it comes to home theaters or audio equipment I am not an expert. I purchased these same speakers quite some time ago. My set up (5.1) consists of: left and right front speakers, a center speaker, sub woofer and two surrounds. The speakers are connected via speaker wire to my AVR. The only speaker that needs power is the sub woofer, which plugs into an electrical outlet. By the way I am quite satisfied with these speakers. The manual included will better explain the set up for you. [ Peter  Oct 21, 2016 ]
YEs you can mine onkyo 150 w sounds grate [ GARY  Jul 20, 2016 ]
I am considered "technology challenged" by my kids. I would hate to give you bad advice but people at Crutchfield know their stuff and would be a better source of information. Sorry! Good luck! [ ROBERT  Jul 19, 2016 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy  Oct 09, 2015 ]  Staff
Don't forget that code and insurance companies may require that speaker wires run inside walls be rated for in-wall applications. The voltage and amperage for speakers is low and unlikely to cause an issue but best to find out what is required by code. [ PHILIP  Jan 07, 2016 ]
I run 12 gauge Monster speaker wire to everything, but the sub. The sub has a dedicated monster speaker cable. Don't waste your time with banana clips for the connections; bare wire to the speaker terminals works fine. A little tricky to get them in the connection hole, but you only need to do it once. [ MICHAEL  Feb 02, 2015 ]
I used 14 gauge speaker wire with banana plugs. [ Michael  Feb 01, 2015 ]
Use #14 wire unless it is a very large room (such as a meeting hall) then get #12. For most homes get #14 wire. Measure how far from the receiver to each speaker so that you know the length needed when you buy a spool. Don't buy the cheap banana speaker plugs I bought the kind with 2 screws on the side of each plug. The wire has a copper sire color and a white or grayish color. I put the copper with the red plug and the other with the white plug. You may also need a good wire stripper. [ Thomas  Feb 01, 2015 ]
I used CE TECH 14-Gauge Stranded Speaker-Wire. [ Yousif  Feb 01, 2015 ]
Best way to answer depends on how far you are running the speaker wire. 14 gauge would be my recommendation without knowing specifics. It is more expensive but worth it. Terminating the wire with pins or banana plugs is important as well. In the end, buying the best quality wire (based on reviews, not price) that you can afford will benefit your overall experience. [ Kevin  Jan 31, 2015 ]
I used Monster XP wire with Monster QuickLock banana connectors (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_119QLGMTH2/Monster-QuickLock-Self-Crimping-Banana-Connectors.html?tp=1715). So far it is working great! I definitely recommend using connectors. [ Nathan  Jan 31, 2015 ]
They are the same. [ JEFFREY  Jan 17, 2015 ]
The satellite speakers are all the same as far as so can tell. I'm very pleased with the speakers. [ JESSE T  Jan 16, 2015 ]
All four are the same, I really like my speakers, glad I purchased them, my sub was bad out of the box but they shipped me a new one quickly and I've had no other issues [ TODD R  Jan 16, 2015 ]
The four small front and back speakers are the same size. I love my speakers. So much quality sound out of such a small speaker. [ SHARI  Jan 16, 2015 ]
They are the same [ Tim  Jan 16, 2015 ]
The speakers are exactly the same as far as range and sound. For example, if I'm playing music is stereo mode and in the exact center of the listening zone the music is rich and enveloping. For movies of course,the rear speakers pick up different background sounds of the presentation and enhance the overall effects. I've had the speakers over a year and couldn't be happier. I was actually thinking about purchasing two more as my receiver will support 7:1 playback but my wife may disagree with that. [ CHARLES  Jan 16, 2015 ]

They are all the same. I bought a pair of the next level up for my front speakers and put the smaller 600's in another zone/room. [ SCOTT  Jan 16, 2015 ]
All 4 satellite speakers ARE exactly the same. [ SEAN  Jan 16, 2015 ]
All four satellite speakers are exactly the same. [ Michelle  Jan 16, 2015 ]
I recently purchased the 600 series and installed the system in a large, open family room with 12 foot ceilings in Florida. The speakers fill the room easily with great clarity. The surround sound adds depth to movies. They combine well with the Denon receiver. [ PHILIP  Jan 07, 2016 ]
Yes, I think it would be undersized for a large high ceilinged room. [ SCOTT  Aug 11, 2014 ]
My system is in a large open plan living area and there is plenty of sound and then some. My ceilings are 9 ft. tall, but these speakers really pump out the sound. I love them! [ SHARI  Aug 08, 2014 ]
Probably. Ours is installed in a modest room with a flat ceiling 12 ft high. [ JEFFREY  Aug 07, 2014 ]
These speakers should be plenty for your living space. I currently have the same set in my great room, which has a 24' ceiling, and is connected to an open dining area, and kitchen/breakfast area. I power my speakers with the Denon AVR2313CI home theater receiver, and I added two Definitive Promonitor 800 satellite speakers to complete the 7.1 channels. From listening to all genres of music, to watching movies, I'm very pleased with the sound from these speakers. Hope this helps! [ Michelle  Aug 07, 2014 ]
I think this system would work just fine. It is amazing how much sound it generates. [ NICK  Aug 07, 2014 ]
This may be tough to answer as this is the first Home Theater speaker system I've ever owned, so I don't have much to compare it to. Further, I have a pretty small living room that's somewhat open but with only 8' ceilings and numerous doorways coming in & out of the room. Having said all of that, I think the system sounds great and we did supplement it with 2 ceiling-mount polk audio speakers so that we could have full 7.1 sound for movies. [ SEAN  Aug 05, 2014 ]
Not in the least. I have an onkyo 515 pushing them and my room is approx 12×14 with vaulted ceilings and I have not had occasion to even push past a quarter of max volume and the sound is amazing. [ CHARLES  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I was amazed at the sound this little system put out when I got it hooked up for the first time. We have a smaller living room & that's why we went with the smaller Definitive system. With that in mind, I don't think this system would have any problems filling a larger room full of sound. That all depends on how much sound you like. It puts out plenty of bass for me in are smaller living room. The Definitive sub's put out a lot of bass! I was shocked when I started listening to it. [ ALEX J  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I don't think so but I'm afraid I couldn't tell you definitively because, in my case, they are set up in a relatively small room. I would ask a Crutchfield advisor. [ JESSE T  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I will tell you this I am no expert but I am the "tech go to" person for my family and friends I guess because I'm a systems engineer. I purchased the 600 for my 20x20 8 ft ceilings family room and something was missing. In the end the perfect combination for me was altering the Procinema 600 by replacing the front left and right with promonitor 800s and the center with the 1000. I absolutely love these speakers but if I was you I would go with the Procinema 1000 by the sound of your setup. I have setup a lot 800s for friends with a mini A frame in the living room but it was a smaller space and sounded fantastic. I hope this helps. [ Daniel  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I don't think so. I' use this in my family room, which opens up to my kitchen and I can't turn it past 50% it would be too loud. [ Gregg  Aug 04, 2014 ]
I returned the 600's. I thought they didn't have the mid bass I hoped for. But I ordered the 800's while on the phone with customer service. I love the 800's and they have the mid bass. These are awesome speakers, I hear things in music that I never noticed from my old speakers. [ Robert  Aug 04, 2014 ]
My L/C/R Satellites are wired directly to my amp and seem to perform just fine. Though I admit that my set-up prevents "ideal" distance between these speakers... But they work just fine/sound great/kick out some serious jams. Hope that's helpful. [ William  Dec 01, 2015 ]
