Definitive Technology to Debut Two Wireless-Ready Powered Subwoofers at CEDIA 2011

BALTIMORE, August 11, 2011 – Definitive Technology today announced two new powered subwoofers that the company will feature at CEDIA Expo September 8 – 11, 2011 in Definitive’s booth (SR4/SR5).

Two New Wireless-Ready SuperCube® Subwoofers CEDIA attendees will also have an opportunity to see and hear two new Definitive subwoofers, the latest models in the acclaimed SuperCube series of ultra-compact enclosures known for having the bass output of subwoofers twice their size. The SC4000 ($799 MSRP) and SC6000 ($999 MSRP) occupy, respectively, under and barely over one cubic foot of volume, making them perfect for in-cabinet installations or anywhere space is scarce.

Thanks to improved active drivers, all-new Class HD high-power amplifiers and a 56-bit microprocessor preamp stage with DSP, the new subwoofers enjoy vastly improved performance compared to previous models. As well as being powerful, the new Definitive subs are environment-friendly. When in idle mode the SuperCubes draw a half Watt of current or less, meeting international standards for low energy consumption.

The most obvious departures from previous SuperCube models are the addition of a digital display (cleverly hidden under the grille) and a wireless remote. Together they are a performance optimizing tool for perfectly blending the subwoofer with the main speakers and room as well as changing bass level “on the fly” to adjust for differences in program material.

As well as improved performance and features the new SuperCubes offer a wireless connectivity option with the purchase of the Definitive SCW 100 wireless kit ($149 MSRP) consisting of a transmitter and a receiver that plugs into a slot on the sub’s amp panel. Custom integrators will also appreciate the 12V trigger jack for whole system turn on as well as the IR repeater input to facilitate in-cabinet installations.

Along with the SC2000 introduced by Definitive earlier this year, the SC4000 and SC6000 replace the SuperCube III, SuperCube II and SuperCube I. The new models are shipping to Definitive dealers worldwide in September 2011.
