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.
