In a word "Amazing", but it's probably the most annoying piece of audio equipment in my setup. The problem is that it's so good at it's modest price point that I'm constantly thinking about throwing expensive cables at it or wondering what the next model up can do, etc.

My receiver is great. Maybe the next model up has a cooler menu which I'll never use or a 3rd HDMI out which I'll never use, etc. I can look at my receiver and easily say the next model up isn't worth it.

This subwoofer however is such an amazing piece you have to wonder if the next model up IS worth it, and that's annoying. :)

Not impressed and actually a quite a bit disappointed. I spent nearly $1,000 on the set: 4 Monitors, Center and this Subwoofer. The Center is very good, the Monitors are "fine" but not great... the entire system will NOT handle loud volume! The Subwoofer is very "box boomy" - and does not replicate true Bass sound.

      Comments about Definitive Technology Black Subwoofer:

      I order this as part of my complete upgrade to my Home Theater system. I didnt want a physically large sub, but wanted high quality sound. The help and knowledge I received from ABT made my decision easy and I am very happy with my choice. The only reason I didnt give 5 stars was when I have system turned and sub start working it will vibrate and move along hardwood floors, probably not an issue with carpeted floors. My room is fairly large with 14' ceilings so in the near future I may even add a second sub.

      Great Sub, Buying Another for Stereo. Cross Over?

      By 

      from Costa Mesa, CA, United States

      Comments about Definitive Technology Black Subwoofer:

      Have had a prosub 800 for over a year. Just bought another one to hook up for stereo. Confused though as to whether or not high-level inputs will give me variable low-pass filter control or is it fixed at 80Hz? Manual seems to contradict itself on this.. Anybody know the answer?

      Great subwoofer!

      from Grand Prairie, TX, United States

      Comments about Definitive Technology Black Subwoofer:

      We got this subwoofer about seven years ago. The amplifier finally blew, but these guys were there to help out. We consistently use this especially during football season and its top-notch. These guys know what they are doing r and I wouldn't ask for any other sub.

                This product was extrodinary. Made the sound powerful and alive.

                Service and delivery comments:

                ABT was great. I had a problem with the first subwoofer which blew fuses and would not work. They sent another one right away which worked great. They took the other one back and paid the return postage. They also credited my charge card upon receiving the other subwoofer back. I could not ask for better service. They exceeded my expectations. I am completely satisfied.
