      Comments about Definitive Technology Black Subwoofer:

      My M&K VX-7 finally bit the dust after 21 years of faithful service. Time to buy a sub without blowing up my budget.
      After reading endless reviews I whittled it down to Velodyne Impact 10 and the Definitive Prosub 1000 since these subs have high level speaker wire connections. I guess the $125 rebate on the Prosub helped with the choice. The sub is now hooked up to my NAD 325BEE amp and I'm thinking if it sounds this good now during the break-in period then I made a great choice.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Although this is the first time I ordered anything from Abt, the whole ordering and delivery process was as smooth as can be. I placed my order on a Tuesday and it was on my front stoop on Saturday. No complaints.

      Comments about Definitive Technology Black Subwoofer:

      I had originally purchased a B&W subwoofer for the same price, and ended up exchanging it for this model. While the B&W was very "musical," it bottomed out and rattled on the very first movie soundtrack I auditioned - the opening sequence to the 2010 Star Trek reboot - and this is after carefully calibrating the entire sound system. I would recommend the B&W only for very small rooms, for apartments, or solely for music to supplement small satellite speakers. The Definitive model, however, put the B&W to shame. The bass is very deep and VERY controlled (meaning no excess boom), and the lack of side-mounted radiators make it very flexible for placement - you can put it right next to a couch without worrying about covering up a driver. (The main woofer faces front, and the passive driver faces the floor). While the B&W case rattled constantly, even with spikes into the carpet, the DT seems extremely well controlled and solid as a rock. Very pleased.

            This sub replaced a 300 watt Infinity 12" sub. Even as a 10" and being more compact the ProSub goes lower and has very tight bass. You will not regret the purchase.

                  Line level input not adjustable with built in crossover. The manual does not states this! However this is not a problem or draw back for the unit. Modern good quality receiver/preamp/sound cards, has selectable low frequency crossover points.[...]. [...].

                    Comments about Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 Subwoofer - Black Finish:

                    I researched a number subwoofers and found the ProSub 1000 to meet all my specs. I looked at Subs only. My speaker system is drawn together from various makes and models. I have Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble II sats as my front L & R. Bose center channel, and SpeakerCraft in-ceiling speakers as my surround rears. My old subwoofer was part of the Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble II system. It was not a powered sub, and did not really work with my current set-up. Weak. Since I've changed it with the Definitive ProSub 1000 my Home Theater has really come to life. But it really shines best listening to great music. I would reccomend this unit if you only need a subwoofer, and would have to imagine their whole series to be a superior choice when buying a complete speaker system. Good price, good size, good brand, good bye.
