5.0 out of 5 stars Like Gold!, February 9, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Definitive Technology ProSub 800 120v Speaker (Single, Black) (Electronics)
So I started with a $150.00 subwoofer (private label through Circuit city). It was rated a 4.8 out of 5 so I gave it shot. Everbody said "great sub for the money". Well it was just that, it was extremely muddy sounding. Then I went to a Klipsh Synergy 10" for $280 through Best Buy. Again great reviews, plus it was $120 off the $399 retail. Much clearer in sound, great power and fills the room BUT the sub had terrible definition for bass guitar. Sooo I finally just stepped it up and spent the extra buck (and came across a deal) to go to the Definitive Tech ProSub 800. WOW what a difference! Not only did the bass rolloff like a waterfall but the definition was perfection. The funniest thing is that this has to be the SMALLEST, MOST, POWERFUL sub on the market. Everything I saw was obnoxious in size...this thing is so small! So if you aren't able to hide your sub behind anything, this unit can easily be out in the open and not be a distraction. My sub is paired up with(2) ProMontior 800 front speakers and Yamaha V663 receiver. I also had (2) existing in-wall Jamo speakers for surround. All together the system sounds phenomonal for music...plus its all so small and clean looking. I have an open concept space (vaulted ceiling and loft). Combo great room and dining room is about 525 sq. ft and the sound radiants thougout the space.
I was lucky enough to get this ProSub with minor cosmetic damage on Amazon for $299. After hearing and seeing it, I would highly recommend this sub for $399, personally I think they could get away with $499 since it offers premium bass definition in such a industry leading small size.

I just bought a pair of Def Tech ProMonitor 800's with stands. It's good to know that with this sub the system will sound great. I had no doubts though, because I already own a full 5.1 Definitive Tech system with a pair of BP2002's, a pair of BP2X, a CLR2002 and a PF15TL sub. What a great sounding system! I bought the smaller ProMonitors for a living room with a plasma TV after feeling like I was missing something (good sound quality). I can't wait to get them connected to a newly purchased Pioneer VSX-521 receiver that I picked up for less than $150!

hi,
iv experienced that the prosub 800 sometimes rattles when it hits some big beats. is this normal?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 13, 2013, 8:52:34 AM PDT
turn down the volume knob on the side just slightly and play that passage again. Also, check to be sure it's not something close to the sub that is rattling.
