Check your manual, you should be able to use then l them as Rear Surrounds for 7.1 by using the proper setup configuration, and if you like, rear surrounds can be mounted up high as well.

And, thanks. Now you know where my screen name comes from.

Ha yeah. Love the setup. Someday You recommend the SVS pb 1000. I am thinking this sub wouldn't work well with my prosub 600 as the prosub is sealed and the pb is ported. Wonder if I'd be better off with the SVS SB?

Actually I was recommending either, they are the same price.
Ported or Sealed really won't matter as far as the matching, the real issue is actually going to be size, the PB is actually quite large, so if you do decide on the PB, do yourself a favor and make a box the same size as the Sub to make sure it will physically fit in your room.

PM600
1. Remove grille. (Start at bottom, slowly moving upward)
2. Remove top two screws. You'll notice that they are screws NOT bolts. (You don't have to remove these but I did.)
3. Do not (as I did) remove any of the 4 screws holding the woofer in place as then you'll have a nut bouncing around inside.
4. Do not remove the screw on the top thinking it's holding something on. (It isn't)
5. Not obvious: there are screws UNDERNEATH each of the rubber grommets that hold on the speaker grille. Pry them off and remove all 6 of the screws. Those 6 are what is holding it on.
6. Gently pull the frame out by pushing just a little on the top bezel. Just wiggle it a enough and it will start to give. (Note, as you'll find out when open, that top baffle is just lightly glued on)
7. Before it come all of the way out, you'll need to reach in and disconnect the two wire going to the binding posts. Again, a little wiggle back and forth and pull straight up. (Don't worry, they are tough, you won't hurt them)

I'll leave the rest to you. My issue was that the woofer is not
working. I looked at every solder joint, every millimeter of the PC board and could not find a issue. Therefore I assume a resistor or capacitor is blown, The 5w resistor you can't really tell if it bad. The capacitors maybe looked like they were leaking, but I could not verify even looking with a loop. Oh well! I will put it all back together and see if it works. That is how I fix all of my stuff. MAGIC!
THANKS!! Saved me a lot of time. Had very weak output on one satellite. Opened it up in 5 minutes with your help, otherwise, I'd have bee cursing up a storm not knowing about the screws behind those rubber grommets! Checked connections.... fine. Called support just to price a replacement crossover. They're sending one out.... FREE OF CHARGE! What? I read all of the good things about Definitive Technology's customer support and would like to add my experience. Why can't all companies be like this? They are sure making a great name for their company!

Due to WAF, I'm limited to 4 x ProMonitor 800 mounted on the walls. However, I have more leeway with size for the center speaker. Ignoring price, should I go with ProCenter 1000 or ProCenter 2000?

Procenter 2000.

Only reason I see to go with the 1000 is if you have space limitations.

I thought maybe ProCenter 1000 would match (or blend in) with the ProMonitor 800 better because the drivers are the same size. Or does that not really matter?

Don't think it really matters.

Def Tech's website states the 2000 matches with the 800, so I think it'd be fine. I wouldn't worry about matching exact driver size.

Works in Concert

A mainstay in the acclaimed Pro Series, ProMonitor 800 speakers pair with a ProCenter 2000 and matching ProSub for a complete ProCinema sound system.

PC2000 as it is much, much better than the PC1000.

If you own the 2000 (or if anyone does actually), how does it handle voices in comparison to the 1000?

I own the 1000 and although dialogue is clear, I find male voices not as deep as they should be, and overall it seems like treble is cranked.

2000 fix those issues? Or does it seem overly treble-y still?
I have space issues so can't really fit a 2000 right now, just wondering in case I run across a deal on it one day ... if it was a huge upgrade and fixed the voice deepness/treble issues, I may get it and worry about fitting it in later.

Yes, I own the PC2000 and love it, and if you search this thread, you will read that the PC2000 is a very big improvement over the PC1000. It is night and day. No issues whatsoever on the treble. You will not regret it in the least. Get one from bayhawaverunner.

Well, for now I'll keep an eye out for it on CL. I got my 1000 super cheap from CL .. (<$50) so tend to do the CL thing when I can.

I'll put it on my very short list of centers to look for though. I don't need a def tech for matching reasons (my sides aren't def techs)... but I need a small center. 1000 is fine for its size, but again, I just sort of like male voices to sound normal and not feel like everything has treble turned up to max.

Just so I have the dimensions right, it's about 6.5" high, 6.5" deep? A couple of places list it larger than that, so want to double check.

Currently have about 5x5, so would need to find some sort of solution there.

6.5" x 6.5" x 17" is accurate.

So I'm running (2) PM800's as the front and a PC1000 center from a a Marantz SR010. I'm wondering how the SVS SB-1000 will pair with it.

Don't worry about thinking that you have to match the Sub with your speakers, you need to match the Sub to your room.
What are the dimensions of your space ( cubic feet) and is it open to other rooms?

The room is 9.5' by 13' (123.5 cubic feet) and opens to the dinning room (the floor plan is below).

I'm renting right now and will be moving next year (likely to a larger place).

Ok, with the area being as open as it is, you're never going to pressurize that space fully, but you'll still want to go as big as you can.(whatever your budget and location options will allow)
I'd definitely look at a ported sub over a sealed version, simply put a ported version will normally give you more output than the sealed version of the same series.
If you like the SVS's, I'd look at the PB2000 or PC2000. (The PC2000 will have a smaller footprint, so it may also be easier to transfer to a different space later as well) minimum if you can, if not at the very least PB1000 and hope for a decent near field location for it.

I'm not sold on SVS, just a name I've seen thrown around. I'm actually thinking about HSU.

Make sure you check out Rythmik too....both solid brands. A big powerful sub makes a world of difference. If you can afford 2 subs, get them.
