Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 Subwoofer Demo

in this video i’m going to
show how to remove and replace a blown
amplifier from a pro
definitive technology pro sub 1000 which
i’ve had for quite a long time that
finally
the amp blew so i had to buy a new one
and i just got this today and i’m going
to show you how to replace it
the first thing you want to do is remove
the amplifier module itself
let’s do that
no
remove the last two screws
oh this is really hard away
and i’m going to try prying it out
so i had to kind of like use the pocket
knife to even
pry it out trying to like minimize the
damage to the wood but it’s kind of a
bummer
what actually worked was gravity itself
i just kind of tilted it on its side
and used the actual weight because this
thing weighs
it is not light this is a very high
quality amp
so here i got it out
here it is man that is heavy
hard to get a look in there but you can
see there’s connectors right there
on the speaker speakers in the front the
passive radiators on the bottom
i’m a little surprised that there’s no
phone uh
like deadening material but i already
pulled off the negative
uh i’m gonna go ahead and pull out the
positive wire
now for this volume knob here i guess
it’s more like the gain
which is on the side of the sub and it’s
connected to this
little white connector there right here
i’m just going to pull it out
there we go there’s the wires
disconnected
here comes the old one look at the size
of this
this transformer it is heavy
whatever they advertise the power is i
think it’s like 300
300 watts i believe it because this
thing this has got away like 15 pounds
this little thing it’s all on that that
it’s all on this transformer look at all
that copper
here’s a new unit
it’s all wrapped up i won’t bore you
with all that
so now you’re going to basically do
everything in reverse
you’re going to connect the wires back
on to the subwoofer
with the red wire being the positive
wire being on the left side
of the subwoofer as shown in this
picture and the black wire on the right
side which is the negative wire
and then you’re gonna place the
amp module back slide it back into the
body of the subwoofer and
start screwing all the screws back in
and
basically that’s it it’s just what what
what it took to
probably just a lot easier to do um you
just want to
might want to be a little careful uh
when you actually make
making the wire connections on the
subwoofer make sure you got them in good
and taut before you actually you know
screw everything back in you might
actually want to just screw a couple of
screws on and then
test out the amp and the subwoofer and
make sure everything’s working correctly
before you actually finish
screwing all the screws back in so
that’s just a quick little tip
i hope you enjoyed the video i know it
was kind of quick and random but
it was something that actually happened
and
i thought might be able to help somebody
out there
take it easy

  1. All I can say is “Wow,” this Sub is more than I could have imagined. I’ve had a number of subwoofers and home theater setups in the past. Furthermore, this sub offers strong tight bass that is not muffled or distorted, but rather clean and pure. I like how it has a volume knob on the side so you can adjust it to your preferences. As soon as I hooked it up (LFE input) and plugged it into the outlet and turned on the power switch, it gets very low, even at 3/4 volume. Then I tried different kinds of music (Directv music channels) and a couple of Blu-rays. This is set up with Def Tech Pro-monitors 1000 and Pro Center 2000. That’s fantastic.

  2. This subwoofer was purchased as part of a new kit to replace my Bose Acoustimass 10 set. Despite the fact that it has a 10″ woofer, it is much smaller than I thought. It has a Low Frequency Effect (LFE) input as well as line level inputs in case your receiver lacks an LFE output. On the back, there is a power on/off switch, and the power cord detaches from the unit, making storage and transport simpler. On the back, there is also a variable crossover selector. A rotary volume knob is located on the edge (placement may be a problem if you place your sub in a tight corner or location). This subwoofer’s style is excellent; nothing flashy that will attract attention to your home decor. It is an acoustic suspension device that includes a passive radiator that operates in conjunction with a woofer.

    The audio quality is excellent! Tight, accurate, and will have the acoustic vibration of a theater experience. It also blends in well with the Pro 800 speakers and Pro 1000 center speaker I bought to go with this sub. Overall, I am very pleased with this subwoofer, and I believe it far outperforms my old Bose Acoustimass 10 series in terms of audio fidelity.

    Pros:
    – Small in size
    – Flexible input
    – Excellent audio fidelity
    – Consistent audio range
    – Crossover with variable selectability
    – Enough continuous power (RMS)
    – Excellent Design

    Cons:
    – Depending on the sub location, locating the volume knob can be difficult.
    – Would like to have a status LED on the front for quick visual comparison.
    – Feet protrude from the finished edge (sides)

  3. This subwoofer by Defenitive came from their Pro Line, specifically the Pro Sub 1000, which has 300 watts and Def Tech’s signature bass radiator technology. It was not what the reviewers had posted. BOOMY. When summoned, it was unable to deliver a hard hit. I have an SVS 2000 500watt RMS 12″ Sub and a Klipsch R12SW 300watt RMS subwoofer. These are my two daughters, to whom all others are compared. The SVS for her Mike Tyson ding ding! And the Klipsch for her Thundering Bass drone, which can make even the whitest boy dance to Hip Hop, Hippety Hop… Don’t give up. Yes, and these two girls in a movie together? 1 for a long thundering roar at the bottom end of thunder, trains, and large explosions. And the other to slap you in the face at the start, reproducing the Thunderous CLAP that the Klipsch SW12 or SW112 (recommended at 300watts RMS instead of the R12’s 200) cannot come close to reproducing! Since the SVS’s sealed box cannot repeat the klipchs! They were made for each other! The Def Tech is neither outstanding nor a member of my entourage. Regrettably, I am a Def Tech speaker fan as well as an SVS Speaker fan. What is a Klipsch? They’re fine for some stuff. It’s just not for me.
