Thanks for the input. They will be more in the middle of a large space. The UIW RCS II look awesome, but don't they have something that won't cost me four times more than my mains?

I totally understand, the 6.5's will still work fine, but make sure you check to see if bajawaverunner might have some of either on e-bay, they'll be more cost friendly.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!

Yes I bought my SM55's from Baja - good source for refurbs. Any thoughts on the DT 6.5STR?

I'm so used to recommending in-ceilings for Atmos applications, I forgot about these. While I've never heard them specifically, for a normal surround application they also should work well.

Ive wanted them as an in-ceiling application since the moment I saw them. Cannot wait to start cutting some holes in my house!

The Def Tech site is a little vague, but it looks like the STR can be used as a single "stereo" speaker or switched for normal use as a surround...is that correct?

Yes, basically you have the option of using both tweeters or just one.

Ok, that makes sense. Looking at the Di 6.5R now. Looks like a more upgraded version of the DT 6.5R?

Please someone (or many) help me with this.

My Pro Sub 1000 from just over two years ago apparently has a dead amp. There was a red light on the back of the unit sometimes stationary, sometimes blinking. I was told it was the amp from DefTech. They sent me a replacement amp from the revised model but the instructions were not very in-depth and it's impossible for me to disconnect the wires connected from the interior of the dead subwoofer. They are glued in place, and the smaller connection is so tight in a narrow space it is impossible to access. I can't even tell if that piece is also glued in, because if it is then there is absolutely no way to get at it. I don't know if they wanted me to connect the new assembly into the old subwoofer or pull the amp off of the new one and install it in the old. There was no diagram, just some instructions as if I'm supposed to know what is what and vaguely at that.

I have a Pro Center 2000 and 4 Pro Monitor 1000's. I am not happy but I will most likely have to buy a new subwoofer, and I need a brand as good if not better unless there is another subwoofer that is better from Definitive Technology. I just need to know what the best option is that isn't going to be outrageous in price. I'm just really frustrated that this subwoofer only lasted two years and a few months.

I definitely wouldn't buy a DT sub. What's your budget? For what a ProSub 1000 cost there are several options that are better.

Agree 100%. As much as I love Def Tech, no go on subs from them. Better, cheaper options.

I'm currently looking to upgrade my center channel, and possibly my surrounds as well. I'm currently using the KEF KHT Line as my surrounds, center channel, and subwoofer.. paired with my Def Tech ST's as my mains.


I just dont think they pair well, and personally i'm less than impressed with the sound quality of the KEF compared to the DT mains.. I dont need top of the line current flagship, but i do need something that's going to sound good.


Do BP's pair well as surrounds for mythos in a single system? i was thinking about purchasing a pair of 8060's as my surrounds & a mythos ten or nine for my center channel.. of course i'm 100% open to suggestions, if you guys would be so kind. thank you.

I have a Mythos 9 that I just replaced with an older CLR 2002 center. The Mythos 9 is a great sounding center for its size and would pair very well with your mains. I replaced it because I prefer the richer sound quality from the much bigger CLR 2002, but it's also hidden in a cabinet now. I originally got the 9 because it was wall mounted several years ago.

I don't know what would match your ST's but I would definitely go with a Def Tech center. With speakers, especially up front all there should be the same speaker brand and the same size drivers.

Yeah, I wish I had known this during my initial purchase because I was never impressed with the subwoofer at all and now it was a complete waste of money which really pisses me off. I really don't want to spend more than I have to, but if there are options you recommend that immediately surpass it at the same cost or less (or slightly more) I would appreciate it. I don't want to spend $500 if possible but if there is a must have around that price I may have to.

in the subwoofer forum you will get some ideas mainly from rsl ,svs,hsu and then about 20 people saying you need a bigger budget

just mention room size and usage ratio music / movies
good luck and yes much better boom for buck then dt subs

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.
Receiver:Marantz SR-5010, Speakers:Def Tech ST-8060 towers, CS-8040 center, SR-8040 surrounds, Pro Monitor 1000 heights

I use this in my bedroom for video games and movies. I live in a Cape Cod so the room has a dormer where the window is and the ceilings are higher than a normal Cape Cod without the severe angle slope. The slope angle occurs about 3/4 up the wall to the ceiling. It's more open, not cramped. I don't know the size of the room exactly, something like 19 x 17. The room is not a perfect square.

I want clear bass with no noise or distortion. It doesn't have to blow out the neighbors windows but a quality sub that makes movies and games what they should be with surround.

Then I'd go with the SVS PB-1000 for $499. Or buy one in their Outlet for $450-$475. You still get the full warranty and it's free shipping. If you don't like it, within 45 days you came send it back for a full refund. Also, for $399 the RSL Speedwoofer 10s is much better than a ProSub 1000. I tried them both but went bigger and spent more money so don't do what I did.

For anyone interested, I just got some new Sewell Silverback banana plugs and really like them. A little tedious with two small screws but they secure the wire very well. Better than my last brand. I'm fortunate enough to have room behind the AVR to use them there also. They're actually smaller than the pics online you find.

I was given some Sewell banana plugs in a recent CL deal, and I really like them too. Mine are the deadbolt flavor though (not sure what the difference is).

First time I ever used banana plugs, but it made setup so much easier for me. But I just got enough for the AVR, didn't have enough for the speakers too. Still... saved me a lot of aggravation trying to wire my speakers up.

I've used banana plugs almost since I started in this hobby 20 years ago. Just so much easier and a better connection.
On another easier note. I bought cheaper stereo RCA cables to connect my 5 channel amp to my receiver and they started failing pretty quickly. Got some single or mono RCA cables from mediabridge and I recommend them big. Very nice quality and a great snug fit to the components. The mono RCA cables look better, and are easier to work with.

Rythmik as the best sub out there for $500. The LV12R. IMO.

I want clear bass with no noise or distortion. It doesn't have to blow out the neighbors windows but a quality sub that makes movies and games what they should be with surround.
that is a good size room

if you up the budget 50 percent the svs outlet has 12" pb2000 in the 750 range nice upgrade from the pb-1000 (10")

hsu 12" vtf mk5 for the 600 dollar range shipped - no paid returns also an upgrade from the pb-1000
but for 500 dollars the pb1000 will beat most or all retail store deals - boom for buck

works well with my def techs

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.

If you don't like it, within 45 days you came send it back for a full refund. Also, for $399 the RSL Speedwoofer 10s is much better than a ProSub 1000. I tried them both but went bigger and spent more money so don't do what I did.

The Pro Sub 1000 is long length-wise so which one of these subs is remarkably better but also not as large if possible? A more compact and powerful sub is just more space accommodating but I can deal with the same size as the Pro Sub 1000 if they're similar.

Also, the PB and PC 1000/2000 is the cylinder of the PC2000 less remarkable since it's a cylinder unit? Cost is likely too much for me.
