Surround yourself with sound

ProMonitor 800 speakers are designed to work as a seamless component of Definitive Technology's ProCinema surround sound systems. Mix-and-match speakers from ProCinema's wide selection to create surround sound effects limited only by your imagination. Start your system with the basic components and then add speakers to scale and customize your sound. Even with one pair of ProMonitor 1000s in your system there is always room for a second pair of ProMonitor 800s to create more realistic imaging and convincing detail in your sound. Thanks to ProCinema, you'll soon have the home theater surround sound system of your dreams.

Tiny speakers that sound like monster towers

The ProMonitor loudspeakers satisfy your need for small, easy-to-place systems with speakers that deliver the true state-of-the-art, no-compromise performance you want. The ProMonitor 800 is a full-range speaker. Use them by themselves in a host of applications (including as stand-alone bookshelf, stand- or wall-mounted speakers). Pair them with matching powered subwoofers and center channels to build music and movie systems of astonishing performance capability: ultra-smooth high-definition clarity and musical linearity combine with superb transient response, tremendous dynamic range, rich warmth, and precise room-filling three-dimensional imaging. The sonic depth, width, and height reproduction and sound of these amazingly compact speakers is so big that Home Theater magazine said they "seem as though they are monster towers if you close your eyes."

Compact size, amazing sound

The ProMonitor 800's compact size makes its big sound and clear acoustics dually impressive. The ProMonitor 800 is conveniently sized but packs an even bigger punch. The ProMonitor 1000 is molded from Definitive's proprietary non-resonant PolyStone mineral-filled polymer compound, resulting in a non-resonant character that is superior to wood. In addition, the unique curved shape of the cabinet is precisely configured with the nonparallel top and bottom to minimize internal standing waves and cabinet wall resonance to further assure sonic purity. What this means to the layman is the ProMonitor 800 is designed to produce fantastic sound quality. In addition, the integrated design of ProCinema acoustics creates compatible voicing between speakers, results in a surprisingly large soundstage and a rich, impressively consistent listening experience.

Linkwitz-Riley crossover

The ProMonitor 800's, along with other Definitive speakers, utilize what is known as the Linkwitz-Riley crossover. Audiophiles may understand this term, but what does this mean to those without in-depth technical knowledge of speaker construction and sound distribution? A Linkwitz-Riley crossover design features a 24-decibel per octave roll-off constructed by combining two-second order 12-decibel per octave Butterworth low-pass filters. This is extremely beneficial in speaker (subwoofers especially) output. It results in in-phase outputs that roll-off quickly and minimize lobing, such as might occur where two speaker drivers on either side of a crossover frequency both still output signals over a range of frequencies close to the crossover frequency. In a nutshell Linkwitz-Riley works to ensure you get the best audio possible, and that's what counts.
