Return to Definitive Technology ProCinema 800
Rating: High to Low
Rating: Low to High
Immersive Base; Buried Dialogue
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.

Speakers are well constructed and pose a great value. Crisp sound and sleek looking.
Reviewer: John from Jacksonville Fl.
These speakers sound incredible, I can hears notes I never heard with my Polk tower speakers. The look great hanging on the wall next to the TV and the ceiling in the rear. Base is insane from a small package. I highly recommend this product.

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
Def techs are great

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.

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.

Great speakers and the price is right. Clean sound, nice looking and fits well into big room.
Amazing product for the price!
Reviewer: lconroy213 from Boston, MA
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.
