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

Rich sound in a small package. November-19-15
Reviewer: Penguin Cyclist from New Hampshire  
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.

Husband is in love November-11-15
Reviewer: tmp from Arizona  
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 October-29-15
Reviewer: LouP from South Carolina  
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.

Good surround October-09-15
Reviewer: NR from Boston, MA  
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.

Good sound from relatively small speakers October-05-15
Reviewer: Nuhuuu from California  
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.
