The versatile, easy-to-place ProMonitor 800 delivers clear, high-definition sound and spacious imaging in a compact design. The speaker features Definitive’s proprietary BDSS driver coupled with a pressure-driven low-frequency radiator, a pure aluminum dome tweeter and a non-resonant PolyStone speaker cabinet that together produce rich, warm lifelike audio with smooth high-frequency reproduction. The speaker offers a range of placement options – securely positioned on a stand or shelf or mounted on the wall or ceiling. A mainstay in the acclaimed Pro Series, pair the ProMonitor 800 with a ProCenter 2000 and any Definitive Technology powered subwoofer for a complete home theater sound system.
From the Manufacturer
The ProMonitor 800 is Definitive’s mid-sized satellite speaker in the acclaimed Pro Series. Four ProMonitor 800s along with a ProCenter 1000 and ProSub 800 makes a complete ProCinema 800 system. All the components of the system are packed and sold separately allowing you to mix and match Pro Series components to build the system that best suits your needs.
Don’t let the ProMonitor 800’s small size and affordable price fool you — it is a remarkably sophisticated product with huge sound. The 800 incorporates many of the same technologies as Definitive’s top-of-the-line models including BDSS drivers, pure aluminum dome tweeters, and planar pressure coupled mid/bass radiators for home theater sound quality that will shock your friends and family when they hear your system for the first time.
The Secret to Their Big Sound
Competing satellite speakers of this size usually have weak lower-midrange response; that part of the audio range that contains the “warmth” and “body” of voices and musical instruments. Listen to a male vocal on typical small satellite speakers and you will instantly hear the weakness in the lower midrange. The ProMonitor satellites avoid this critical problem by pressure-coupling exclusive BDSS technology driver to an equal-sized mid/bass radiator cleverly placed on the top of the satellite. This technique doubles the lower-midrange radiating area of the speaker without increasing the size of the enclosure. You’ll enjoy the kind of rich, warm and life-like sound quality that you thought was only possible with big, hard to place speakers.
Easy to Place, Easy to Use
Small enough to disappear in a room but beautiful when in plain view the 800 satellites can be shelf-mounted with their unique tri-lobed base, wall-mounted using the built-in keyhole mount or optional ProMount 80 articulating pivot mounts, or stand mounted with their optional ProStand 600/800 floor stands (sold separately).
Sonically, the ProMonitor 800 satellite is a revelation in terms of achieving incredible sound at an affordable price. Their imaging is absolutely boxless, spacious and three dimensional while delivering pinpoint specificity and localization when called for. They are velvety smooth with you-are-there presence which is hard to find at any price and unheard of in this price range. The 800 is dynamic but capable of great subtlety so it excels equally with music or movies.
