Great Sub at a Great Price
Posted by: 01Sugar2 from: The Colony, TX on
This sub is being used in a small bedroom 5.1 audio setup, and I feel that this is important for those of you reading this review. The sub itself is smaller than most and yet has many high end features to it such as the LFE out and gain dial options on the back. There's a volume dial on the side that's also nice for quick and easy adjustability, and there's always the AV receiver that can handle power output adjustments to the sub for extra fine tuning as well.
Bass will add so much to the dynamics of your TV shows, movies and or gaming experience if you're not already used to having it. The Pro 800 has more than enough power to rattle all of my shot glasses off of the wall and then some. There are always other brands out there to look at, and for many out there, $400 for a subwoofer may be at the extreme end of your budget. I suggest however that you give it a try as this little guy really can deliver when it comes to sound output. Again, if you're not used to hearing much bass in your every day audio/video entertainment, then be prepared to be blown away.
I've had this sub since about April of 2010, and have had zero issues with the unit at all. I have a feeling that if you purchase one of these subs that you're going to quickly fall in love with it. Definitive Technology produces some very nice quality products, and I for one am a big fan of their speakers. As for subs in this price range, I really don't think that the Pro 800 can be beat. They're very durable and should offer up many many years of satisfaction in your home.

Small size, big bass! You wont be disappointed!

I have this little guy paired up with my pro800 fronts, pro600 surrounds, and procenter1000, running through a Pioneer AVR, and the bass is thundering! These subs are so small and easy to hide, but dont let size fool you, they generate massive power! Just watch a battle scene from Gladiator, or LOTR for instance and you will feel it reverberate through your chest! They work best if you run your front speakers through the back and then through the receiver, which may be a little extra wiring but well worth the hassle in IMO. They look very nice as well. Crossover works perfectly and auto on and off makes it easy and works flawlessly unlike some other brands i have had before. Get one if you can!

Simply amazing.. Strong. Clean.

This subwoofer is blowing my mind. I have had the mainstream subs, like Pioneer, JBL and Klipsch. They don't TOUCH this unit. It is way more power than I can use, I keep the side volume control about half way most of the time. The low frequencies are so even and solid, good sound quality. Matching it to a 3 piece set of Monitor Audio Bronze edition speakers at 80W each. The subwoofer is equally matching the front stage's sound quality. I have been auditioning the sub in stereo mode with just the 2 front speakers, and I have never heard my CD's sound this good. Do yourself a favor, and at least check this sub out before you go buy a mainstream brand. For this price compared to the others pricing, there is simply no reason whatsoever to not get this one. I run the receiver crossover around 80Hz, but the subwoofer also has its own crossover and volume for fine tuning. I didnt know a sub could sound THIS good.

With new SM350s, my old Velodyne CHT-10 was showing its limitations -- a lot of bass but not very clear. All other speakers in my living room are Def Techs, and they are great, so I wanted to go with Def Tech for the sub as well. After a few auditions in Magnolia, was assuming I'd go with a SuperCube III, but wondered if that would be overkill in my small living room, and at a hefty price -- decided to give the ProSub 800 a try at home, assuming that I'd return it and get the Supercube -- but to my surprise, the 800 blends very well with the 350s, sounds very natural.
I don't care that much about rattling the walls and feeling like a tank is going through my house with movies, just wanted to hear good, crisp lows in music and realistic sound effects in movies. This sub does the job, and at a fair price. I'm very happy that I gave this sub a try!

We installed a middle-range system in our small living room (a Marantz NR1402 250W receiver and two MartinLogan Motion floor speakers) to go with our 55" Sony Bravia TV, and it was great sound, but we knew a subwoofer would be the icing on the cake. The Geek Squad installer had a Def. Tech. ProSub 800 on-hand in his truck. He installed it for us to show the difference in sound, and WOW, it's amazing! And after having it almost two months, it's all broken in now, and it catches every low noise the movies and music have. I didn't know what I've been missing all these years, sound wise. It's just amazing and I couldn't suggest it more, especially for a smaller room that's not more than 400 ft. square.

Very nice Sub!!
Posted by: Yamadog77 from: San Diego, Ca on
This thing rocks, I am very pleased with the overall package. I am using it with a Denon 2113ci, Def tech pro-monitor 1000 fronts/centers. Fills the room with full, rich sound.

Perfect to fill a room
Posted by: movieking13 from: Appleton,WI on
I have 2 of these for my home theater system and they do a fantastic job. There is an easily accessible power dial on the side to raise or lower the base. All in all it does exactly what I need it to do and more.

Does not do much to enhance the overall sound experience. Average subwoofer.

I was very impressed by the output capable of this subwoofer. I am using this to compliment a set of full range stereo speakers for 50% music and 50% movies, and I was able to fill the low end voids that seemed to exist with my room's acoustics and speaker placement. I recommend something without a passive radiator if you care about super high impact explosions in movies; otherwise, this subwoofer can do just about anything you want it to do.

Compact but tight low end
Posted by: Germ from: on
Took some adjusting and settings to get it work well with my other sub but after a few days I really started to love the sub. Does not work well on a hardwood flooring without it sitting on some carpet. The passive bottom firing radiator will make the sub dance all over easily. Especially with scenes in the movie "Interstellar" Its well built and I kinda like the side mounted volume control but I think it would be better if it was top mounted. Its exceptional tighter than my 10" ported sub its paired with when it comes to lower end bass
