what's the price you are getting this sub at?

Braveheart123 is asking the right question. ID companies like SVS, HSU, PSA, Rythmik, etc. generally offer better value when it comes to subwoofers so depends on what price you're getting the Supercube at.

For less than $800, any of the following subs will murder SC6000;

PSA XV-15
HSU VTF-3 MK4
Outlaw LFM-1 EX
Rythmik LV12R
PB12-NSD

All these subs are ported; call it my bias. If it was my money; I wouldn't waste on def tech subs.

To answer your title, "opinions on Definitive Super cube 6000": Supercube subs are for people that absolutely have to have an underperforming tiny sub for a small room and don't mind overpaying a lot for it. Listen to what braveheart is telling you in his post smile.gif

Agree, I looked at the super cube and ruled it out once I saw what the id companies had to offer.

Absolutely agree. I'm partial to the PSA but that's because I just bought one. Truthfully any of these would be great.

OP.....these are the published lower and upper frequencies of SC6000 with only 9" active cone. That means nothing. For a novice, that's a death trap if target application is movies. The thing to look for, as a starting point for any novice, is the +/-3dB rating. Which DefTech is very crafty to miss out from their specs.

You can safely assume the -3dB point of this sub to be slightly below mid 30s, which is not going to cut it for movies. I've had SC Reference (bought, in fact, wasted $1800 on it); and that is even a bigger garbage if I consider price/performance ratio. I'm still regretting the day I bought it. Of course, I wasn't on this forum at that time mad.gif

I wonder why DefTech avoids sending subs to Josh Ricci for hair splitting rolleyes.gif.............yeah you guessed it right. They will get exposed eek.gif

All the alternative options I listed before will blow SC6000 like it was never born. They are all tried and tested great value subs. Can't beat em in performance at their listed price point. Choice is yours, at the end of the day wink.gif
