- Music Lovers Rejoice
Subwoofer manufacturers are always talking about how "explosive" their subwoofers
are (frankly so do we), but there's more to home entertainment than rocket
blasts and explosions—there is also music, be it in the movies you watch or
the CDs you enjoy. And for music the quality of a subwoofer's performance
is way more important than the quantity. The bass should be "tight," precise,
and musical. Bass notes should have pitch, not just a dull thud or drone.
Definitive Technology was started by and is run today by music fanatics and
the very first thing we do to evaluate a subwoofer prototype design is to
listen to music. If a subwoofer doesn't do an exemplary job with music reproduction,
it's not a Definitive.
- Features in the Service of Superior Performance
The most obvious departures from previous SuperCube models are the addition
of a digital display (cleverly hidden under the grille cloth) and a wireless
remote. They're much more than an aid for chronic couch potatoes; they're
serious performance optimizing tools for perfectly blending the subwoofer
to your system and room and correcting for differences in program material.
In an ideal audio system the subwoofer works "invisibly," simply adding deep,
loud bass without calling attention to itself—blending seamlessly with the
main speakers. The key to seamless main speaker/sub blending is finding the
perfect crossover frequency, equalization and phase settings for your system
and room. And the best place to make those "set and forget" adjustments is
from your listening chair via a wireless remote. For everyday use the remote
makes it easy to set just the right amount of bass output to compensate for
program material differences. As you make settings adjustments, the hidden
display lights up to indicate the setting value and then turns off a few seconds
later. You'll get exactly the bass performance you want – effortlessly at
the touch of a button.
- Digital Tracking Amplifier for Clean High Output
The SC4000 features a designed-from-the-ground-up brawny Class HD digital
tracking amplifier that is optimized for real world power demands to deliver
low distortion and high output. As well as producing high continuous power
to cleanly reproduce sustained bass, this all-new Definitive amp has a high
crest factor to deliver considerably higher power during short, transient
peaks such as bass drum kicks and on-screen artillery blasts. You'll enjoy
high volume, high impact, and low distortion bass from your favorite action/adventure
films and TV shows without sacrificing the smooth response and quick precision
needed for music. As well as being powerful, the new Definitive amps are environment-friendly.
The amplifiers go into idle mode less than 30 minutes after the cessation
of signal and draws a mere half Watt or less of current, meeting international
standards for low energy consumption.
- Computers in the Subwoofer Exert Precise Control
The SuperCube 4000 has an integrated 56 bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP)–in
essence a mini computer–that extends and improves the bass response. Multi-band
digital protection systems tightly monitor and control the woofer system to
prevent distortion and woofer damage at ultra-high volume levels with a minimum
of audible artifacts. In contrast to simpler one-band compression/limiting
circuits used in competing subwoofer amp designs, the Definitive subs feature
a Multiband Dynamic Range Optimizer (M-DRO) that divides the frequency range
into multiple bands. If the DSP detects an overdrive condition in the upper
bass range, it applies just the right amount of compression and to prevent
distortion to just that range without compressing the low bass, thereby vastly
reducing the audible compression artifacts. The bottom line is that SuperCube
bass is always tight, highly detailed and distortion free.
- Rock Solid Cabinets Ensure Pure Low Distortion Response
The cabinet of a loudspeaker plays a large part in its sonic performance.
Resonance and vibration can add unwanted distortion as well as drain away
important acoustical energy from the system. Definitive's subwoofer enclosures
have been specifically engineered to be totally inert and vibration free,
to ensure you of absolutely pure sonic reproduction. The front and rear panels
are nearly 2-inches thick and the cabinet incorporates multiple internal braces
to ensure total solidity. To top off the extraordinary performance, the SuperCube
4000 is finished in gorgeous piano-gloss black.
- High-Definition Subwoofer Drivers Deliver Superior Detail and Lightning-Fast
The powerful, high-definition drivers used in the new SuperCubes were specifically
engineered for their task: to deliver rock-solid low distortion bass, reaching
down to the lowest frequencies, with an outstanding quality of superior transient
response ("tightness"). The special ultra-stiff cones are joined to specially
formulated surrounds and long-throw voice coils and spiders. The incredibly
rigid cast Aluminum baskets are engineered to hold the massive magnet structures
and large voice coils in absolute alignment. The high temperature voice coils
are made of aluminum wound with triple insulated ultra-pure copper wire and
baked in epoxy for superior power handling and reliability.
The SuperCube 4000 features a new 8-inch (20cm) subwoofer driver pressure
coupled to two 8-inch (20cm) Ultra Low Bass Radiators. The total piston area
is greater than a 12-inch diameter woofer but with far greater speed, musicality
and control than a single large diameter woofer could ever deliver—and it
all fits in an impossibly tiny enclosure that is easy to tuck away out of
sight. The SuperCube 4000 can fill most domestic spaces with loud, visceral,
extended and musical bass yet it occupies less than a square foot of floor
- A Full Range of Inputs Facilitates Easy Hookup to Any System
The SuperCube 4000 can connect to any audio system via your choice of single
cable LFE, stereo line level and speaker wire level inputs. Or you can choose
to go wireless with the optional wireless connectivity kit for the ultimate
in connection convenience.
