Overview Details Accessories

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.


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.

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.

Definitive Technology ProCinema 800 Reviews

Awesome Sound January-09-15
Reviewer: Joe from Florida  
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.

Def Tect ProCinema 800 December-30-14
Reviewer: Steve P from Southington, CT  
Amazing sound with music or movies.  It will make you say "Bose Who?" Paired with a Denon AVR-X2100W

Solid Speakers December-29-14
Reviewer: Burak from Winchester, MA  
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.

Def Tech 800- A really good choice December-25-14
Reviewer: JLS from Central Florida  
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.

ProCinema 800 December-12-14
Reviewer: Buck from Arizona  
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.
