[Amazon.ca] $420 Definitive Technology Prosub 1000 10" Subwoofer

A good sub for the price.
Very powerful amp at 300 RMS 600 peak, small footprint, cheaper than in the US. I own a Prosub 600 and a 800 (the 8" version).
The Prosub 800 has the same amp for $328 https://www.amazon.ca/Definitive-Techno ... ics&sr=1-2

Not a bad price compared to RRSP which it has been for the past few months, but apparently it's been down as low as $316 in the past year. That'd be the time to buy!
Other than that I'm looking for a small sub to turn my 2.0 living rooms speakers into 2.1. But I don't know anything about this one.

I wish they would include a frequency response graph... Supposedly 18 Hz – 150 kHz, but can't tell how good the response is with just that.

According to users of AVS Forum this sub's output nose dives to nothing below 35hz.

No way I'm paying over $400 for something that doesn't get below 35hz AND the manufacturer doesn't provide frequency response.

Small subwoofers make sense when you live in a condo, an apartment, anywhere where space is at a premium.
It's not designed to be earth shaking (although it gets really loud) but rather to complete a home theater with small speakers or a 2.1 system with 4" or 5" woofers.

Why are you trying to sell me this sub?
This doesn't have to do with what I said.
I didn't mention space, vibrations, or volume.

Unfortunately would need to pay quite a bit more to get a sub that goes below 35hz without significant output drop off.

I didn't mean significant output drop off, I meant almost no output at all from what others have said.

Polk HTS12 is sold all day every day at a store in my city for $375.

I have a Polk HTS 12 in my living room. It's twice as large and I'm having trouble with room modes, it sounds muddy at my place. Bigger is not necessarily better.

You don't need to feel the need to lecture me.
Everything you've responded to me here and earlier I know.
I was simply giving an example of something in the same price that goes lower as apparently the other guy was unaware.

My Definitive SuperCube 6000 is supposed to go down to 14hz, there's nothing below 30 though based on published measurements and also what I hear in my living room. Looks like their frequency ratings are marketing garbage in general.

Your sub probably sounds muddy it's because it's not calibrated or it's not in the right spot. Sometimes, the right spot for proper acoustics is in an undesirable place, which is where calibration comes into play.

The Sub and center channel do 80-90% of the work when someone is watching a movie, and most people don't bother to use room correction or set their sub up properly.

In any given room what happens is you have boomy spots (frequencies where bass is amplified) and nulls ( frequencies where bass sounds like it disappears). If you don't account for this either with placement or with good quality room correction, your sub will sound like crap. Proper room correction will smooth out those peaks and valleys in an otherwise acoustically poor room and make the sub sound amazing.

You can get enormous subs that sound tighter than a small 8" sub if one is calibrated and the other isn't. I cannot stress the importance of proper placement and calibration enough, it matters for all speakers but especially with a sub.

Me too! I have an 8" and have been waiting for this... I've been told that 2 inches make a big difference, so I need it!

Sub location can be a factor.

Audyssey was turned off!!! I turned it on and rerun the calibration. It's night and day, thank you

I paid $220 for this one as a warehouse item. It's pretty decent in a small room.
