(Open Box Like New) Definitive has always led the industry with the best-sounding shielded center channels available. Optimum surround sound home theater reproduction places heavy demands on the center channel speaker, which in many respects is the main speaker in the system and often handles 50% or more of the program material. It is no place to compromise and settle for second best. Because of this, Definitive pioneered the concept of full frequency range high-definition center-channel speakers. Definitive's center channels and C/L/Rs are consistently rated as the best available, and have won numerous Audio Video Grand Prix Center Channel of the Year Awards each and every year. Definitive's current offerings are the best ever, all featuring wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation. All feature non-resonant monocoque cabinets with Linkwitz-Riley crossover networks, pure aluminum dome tweeters and die-cast-basket bass/midrange drivers in D'Appolito arrays. Enjoy a superior home theater audio performance without investing in expensive and space-consuming loudspeakers with the Definitive Technology ProCinema system, a line of compact satellite speakers, center channel speakers, and subwoofers that produces incredible sound at an affordable price. The biggest challenge in designing a sub/sat system is to engineer small satellites with a frequency response that extends low enough to blend properly with the subwoofer. Definitive Technologies overcame this challenge with the ProCinema series by engineering pressure-coupled medite passive radiators into the satellites and center channel speakers (the radiators are upward firing in the sats and side firing in the centers). These radiators dramatically improve the low frequency response while also delivering better linearity, improved transient response, and lower distortion. In addition, Definitive outfitted the speakers with BDSS technology, a patent-pending driver technology that couples a unique balanced double surround system--at both the apex and outer edge of the cone--with a precisely engineered central waveguide. BDSS produces a smoother response, greatly improved dynamic range, and dynamic stability, all essentials for elite home theater performance. Sonically, the ProCinema speakers are a revelation in terms of producing incredible sound at an affordable price. Their imaging is absolutely boxless, spacious, and three-dimensional, with pinpoint specificity and localization when appropriate. Not only are they silky smooth with a "you are there" presence--unique at any price and unheard of in their price range--but they're capable of great subtlety as well. It all adds up to an immersive surround sound performance that excels whether you're watching movies or listening to music. This particular speaker--the ProMonitor 1000 satellite speaker--excels whether matched with a second ProMonitor 1000 in a stereo setup or when teamed with three additional satellites in a surround sound system. Each speaker is equipped with a single 5.25-inch cast-basket bass/midrange driver, a single 5.25-inch pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiator, and a 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter. The drivers combine to produce ultra-smooth, high-definition clarity and a tremendous dynamic range, with a wide-ranging frequency response of 47 Hz to 30 kHz--a notable accomplishment for such a small speaker. The ProMonitor 1000s sound particularly good when teamed with a ProSub subwoofer and a ProCenter center channel speaker, creating an immersive home theater environment capable of fitting in just about any room, including small living rooms and bedrooms. Available in high-gloss, hand-rubbed piano gloss black or gloss white, the ProMonitor 1000 speakers offer several mounting options: shelf mounting via the unique tri-lobed base, wall mounting using the built-in keyhole mount or optional pivot mount, or stand mounting using an optional floor stand.

The ProSub 1000 Subwoofer Speaker produces true state-of-the-art bass performance thanks to such features as a built-in, high-power, high-current amplifier, sophisticated electronic crossovers, and a high-definition 10-inch woofer with a polymer cone coupled to a single 10-inch infrasonic radiator. All of Definitive's ProSub powered subwoofers incorporate the company's patented, digitally coupled Infinite Power Source amplifiers--300 watts RMS in the case of the ProSub 1000--with high-current direct coupled power supplies and discrete MOSFET output devices helping ensure perfect high-definition resolution and reproduction. The sub's construction quality is also topnotch, with only the highest-quality components used, including mil-spec glass epoxy circuit boards and precision resistors and capacitors. The powerful high-definition drivers, meanwhile, were specifically engineered by Definitive to deliver rock-solid low-distortion bass that reaches down to the lowest subsonic frequencies, with an outstanding quality of superior transient response unequaled in the world. Add in a continuously adjustable low-pass filter control--which allows you to choose a roll-off from 40 to 150 Hz for the high end of the subwoofer--and you have an ideal subwoofer to blend into your ProCinema system. ProCenter 1000 Center Channel Speaker: The ProCenter 1000 center channel speaker helps produce truly astounding dialogue when teamed with ProMonitor satellite speakers and a ProSub subwoofer. A center channel loudspeaker is the heavy lifter of your multichannel home theater system, as it delivers more than 50 percent of movie soundtrack information in a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack mix. Fortunately, the ProCenter 1000 tackles this workload with ease thanks to its pair of 4.5-inch die-cast-basket bass/midrange drivers, which take the frequency response down to 47 Hz when teamed with the pair of 4.5-inch pressure-driven planar low-frequency radiators. The speaker also includes a 1-inch, wide-dispersion pure aluminum dome tweeter to handle the high frequencies, along with a resonant monocoque cabinet. The end result is a wide dynamic soundstage with an extra-large sweet spot, ensuring that everyone in the room hears every detail.
