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 centre channel, plus a 300-watt powered subwoofer. Get ready for powerful, room-filling sound with movies, video games, and music.

ProCinema 600

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 ProCentre 1000 centre 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 speakers' frequency range.

Smooth highs and extended mid-bass

All of the surround speakers and the centre 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 centre 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.

Sub radiator

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

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 centre 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, ProCentre 1000, and ProSub 800.


BDSS speakers

Got wire?

Most speakers don't include any. Learn about choosing and installing speaker wire at the Crutchfield Learning Centre.

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.

DEF TECH 800 October-07-14
Reviewer: michael g from New Port Richey Fl  
Great Sound with my Yamaha Receiver. Prior speakers just didn't do receiver justice


 
Immersive Base; Buried Dialogue March-08-14
Reviewer: ogret from Idaho  
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.
