Hello all!  This is Danny again here to tell you about another line of product that we here at Aire Theater Designs are thrilled about.  That product is........drum-roll please...... Definitive Technology Supercube subwoofer series! Supercube...able to destroy tall buildings with a single note! This series is tremendous, not only for its affordability, sound quality, and power, but for its convenient small size. You typically need a subwoofer the size of a Buick to get great bass. With Supercube, you get fantastic bass out of a box the size of a gallon of milk. Read on for details about 3 awesome subwoofers in the SuperCube line.

 

 

The smallest of the 3 is the SuperCube 2000 which incorporates a single 7 ½ inch driver pressure-coupled to (2) 7 ½ inch ultra low bass radiators and is fitted w/ a 650 Watt Class D amplifier. This is all housed in a tiny 10 ¼" W x 10 7/8" D x 10 ¾" H package. What's this mean to you? This means that you will get great bass for music and movies in small-to-medium sized rooms with a small box that can be hidden in many areas (ex: closet, cabinet, behind a plant, etc.).

In the middle of the pack you have the SuperCube 4000 which incorporates a single 8 inch driver pressure-coupled to (2) 8 inch ultra-low bass radiators and is fitted w/ a 1200 Watt digital tracking power amplifier.  Its footprint is: 11 7/8" W x 11" D x 12" H. What's this mean to you? This means that you will get great bass for music and movies in medium-sized rooms. This model is also very musical so it will enhance your music listening experience without sounding boomy or distorted.

The big boy of the smaller SuperCube subwoofers is the SuperCube 6000.  It has a single 9 inch driver pressure-coupled to (2) 10 inch ultra low bass radiators and is fitted w/ an unbelievable 1500 Watt digital tracking power amplifier! Its footprint is:  12 7/8" W x 12" D x 13" H. What's this mean to you? Crazy bass in medium-to-large sized rooms. This model will give you the feeling of having a Tyrannosaur in your Living Room when you're watching Jurassic Park. If you already have a pet Tyrannosaur it will sound like you have two.

 

These subwoofers don't only provide ground-shaking explosions...they also complement your music. You will experience your music in a totally different way if you've never had a subwoofer. You will literally hear notes in your favorite songs that you've never heard before! We are so thrilled with these beasts that the majority of our Aire Theater team sprung for SuperCube 6000s in our own personal systems at home!  Definitive Technology really came through for all of us with the incredibly tight, accurate, clean sounding and powerful SuperCube subwoofer line!  No matter which you choose; SuperCube 2000, SuperCube 4000, or SuperCube 6000, you are in for a treat!

 

P.S. If you really need a whomper of a subwoofer or are building a dedicated theater, ask us about the 185 pound SuperCube Trinity. It's not small, cheap or quiet. Here's a blurb from one review: "The most articulate and dramatically energetic sub that I have auditioned… there is more to this sub than brawn…The Trinity Subwoofer has a rare agility that transcends its massive shape…the Definitive Trinity would be considered a killer at double its price…this subwoofer is a steal."

“When I drink beer I drink Dos Equis and when I enjoy music it’s with a Yamaha Aventage receiver at the helm. The reasons are simple… While music has been around for centuries, the ability to record and play back my favorite songs has been around for a little over 100 years. Yamaha has been doing music for nearly as long with the production of musical instruments, recording equipment and reproduction and playback equipment. With such a rich intertwining of musical abilities, it was only natural to integrate Yamaha Aventage in my new A/V system.”

- Most Interesting Man In The World

 

The Aventage line of receivers that Yamaha released a couple years ago took advantage of the cheapening audio market. While a lot of manufacturers have been focusing on delivering more features at a cheaper price (race to the bottom approach), Yamaha let their design engineers have a three year free-for-all with the development of the Aventage line. The instructions were simple; Make our products sound better than anyone else at a similar price point.

In order to achieve this objective, engineers were given the latitude to swap internal amplifier parts, circuits, power supplies, fuses, capacitors, etc. until they found what they believed was a sonically better piece of audio machinery. The results were achieved with minimal cost impact and maximum performance enhancements. Some things they implemented were simple, like the now famous Fifth Foot. Believe it or not, this seemingly silly addition reduced vibration in the chassis of the receivers enough so that even NON-audiophiles could hear an improvement in sound quality!

Other behind-the-scenes improvements included using those best of class processors, capacitors and circuits throughout the build of each Aventage receiver. Optimized amplifier layout and high quality DACs contribute to sonic excellence as well. Advanced third party control options and heartier construction were also priorities to deliver greater flexibility and improve sound quality further. To top it all off, Yamaha backs the Aventage line with an uncommon 3 year manufacturer’s warranty. You may ask yourself, what does this mean to me? Well, the answer is simple; Aventage receivers provide better build quality, better sound and a great value at the same price as the competition.

"Hey all! How long have you had your current audio/video receiver? If it a year or longer you are probably behind the times. No need to be sooooooooooooo 2010. Here is why you need a new receiver.

A Blu-Ray player...many of you have one now. In addition to the amazing picture that you see now it also can provide the best format of audio available. These formats are called Dolby True HD and DTS-HD. Without getting into too much technology these formats provide sound that is just like you hear in the theater. It provides less distortion and has greater clarity than anything that we've ever heard before from home systems (it is a bit-for-bit copy of the master studio mixes for my fellow geeks). The catch is that you have to have a receiver that supports these formats in order to achieve this acoustic alchemy at home.

If you are into movies and would like to get the best sound possible, see my friends at ATD and have 'em hook you up."

 

P.S. Update as of 01/17/2019. If you are interested in Dolby Atmos, the newest and most immersive sound format EVER, you're in the right place. Let us show you our Dolby Atmos home theater set-up!
