Definitive Technology announced two new wireless-ready SuperCube subwoofers, the SC4000 and SC6000. Sized just barely over one cubic foot of volume, the new subs are designed 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 micro-processor 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) 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.
