AFFORDABLE! Home Theater System for SMALL SPACES – ProCinema 6D Review
Def Tech ProCinema 600:
⬇︎DESCRIPTION⬇︎
The ProCinema 6D was my first home theater system after leaving home for college 20 years ago. I found myself in a tiny garage apartment forcing me to give up my beloved JBL G400 system. Buying my first home theater system meant going small. Finding a home theater system for small space wasn’t as easy as it is today. Soundbars weren’t a thing yet. The Definitive Technology ProCinema 6D home theater system kept me watching movies & enjoying music in a small space.

Should you buy small speakers for home theater or a sound bar? This Def Tech home theater is more flexible long term but buying a sound bar for a small living space home theater is what many buy. But if tight on space & plan to upgrade later, this a great first time home theater.

    Question about the radiators. Do they make that much of a difference? I have an opportunity to get a great deal on the older style Pro 80s but they dont have the radiator. For rears I wonder if it even matters?

    Thanks for the reviews. I found your site recently as I've been getting ready to upgrade from an old Sony HTIB and I just ordered these from Costco last week for $549. I'm planning on pairing them with a Denon AVR S760H which I'm going to get from Costco as well. Hopefully they sound good together.

    What part of this system would you replace first if able? Center, sub, or L and R?

    Hey Andrew, I've got a Klipsch 5.1.2 atmos setup and my only disappointment is that the dialogue coming from the center seems a bit localized and I'd love to broaden it out. I tried the "center spread" setting on my Denon AVR but it didn't seem to make a difference, and most people seem to discourage using it anyway. I've been curious if the midrange drivers on the Definitive center would help project more of the dialogue as opposed to the Klipsch just sending it out of the horn tweeter, or will the tweeter still be doing all of the work of the Definitive as well? Thanks to anyone who can help me out with this!

    “Affordable” it’s twice the price as the klipsch reference theater pack which has bigger speakers. Oh, bigger speakers don’t mean better? Why all the hate on sound bars then? Because these speakers turned on their side and put together look like a sound bar

    Hi Andrew, I always enjoy your reviews and after-video banter with your wife. You 2 are awesome. I just finished watching the video. I think you were referencing the original Procinema 600 since the 6D isn't that old..Both suffer from a somewhat lean midrange when not properly set up and not powered well. Granted my system is a little different, being that I own a Pioneer Elite SC-07 with 140wpc on tap. The sub has always been the system's Achilles though. One thing which should help though is to wire the receiver to the sub's high-level inputs(the binding posts) and then wire the speakers to the sub. Once you've done that, set your front speakers as LARGE. next rerun your receiver's room correction. This makes the midbass warmer, the crossover point between the sub and sats is only about 6dB per octave so it is not as steep of a slope, hence it allows for a much smoother transition and than your receiver's sub-output filter.- still, keep that wired by the way so you can adjust the LFE to your liking for movies.

    Came across this video after hooking up my 6d with a Yamaha v385 receiver. I have not finished the sound set up and while it def sounds better then just tv speakers or any sounder I have had Im not sure if Im liking it or not. I see I can get the Jamo s803 set for 200 on amazon plus a sub which seems like a good deal. Or should I bite the bullet and get tall speakers like I used to have. I'm a bit lost in this world now compared to years ago. I wanted to keep everything up high which meant above the tv excuse of kids but at this point ill just do what needs to be done for good sound. Im about $1000 in on my receiver and the speakers as I got them open box at best by but were brand new still wrapped.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated thank you

    LOL my first surround sound system was all in one box. I don't recall the model but I know it was a Yamaha receiver with 2 front, 2 rear, 1 center speaker and a sub. I remember best buy through it in free for purchasing one of their selected DLP big screen tvs. Wow!!! did I just date myself lol. I thought I was so cool. Bought my first house with a big screen and booming system. That was funny.

    My first system was nothing as fancy as what you just reviewed! I was 12-13yrs old and had a tiny room at home. I bought a Panasonic 5.1 system for about $250. I spent weeks moving speakers and playing with settings and in the end it wasn't that good but it made me happy and its what got me going in this hobby. Now I'm almost 40 and in the process of building a system for a brand new house. Thanks for the little trip down memory lane!

    Great video love your thoughtful analysis on home theatre gear. I was eying the Pro Cinema 800 on clearance ($359) to replace my current Onkyo HT750 (old HTiaB) setup I picked up a decade ago but I'm assuming the Jamo 803 system would be the way to go after watching this. Also my first setup was back in 1996 with a 5.1 pioneer receiver and off brand KEH surround speakers that were so cheap they had paper cones on the center channel. They did the trick for a teenager getting into home theater!

    First for me was a Energy RC Micro 5.1 with a Denon avr1513. Was in a smaller appartment so space was a premium in the living room area. Still have the set up almost 10 years later as my bedroom HT set up. Have a def tech set up in my current living room set up. Really wish Energy was still around.

    Hello Andrew ! Very interesting video. I like it, wide comments that are very useful. My first home theater speakers were JBL 6.1 home theater with a Yamaha receiver. I’m totally agree with you about how much delicate is the proper tuning of subwoofers.

    My first proper home theater system was back in the late 90s. A Denon A/V receiver and Paradigm speakers/sub. Was a gift from my brother and I loved it for nearly 20 yrs. Downsized a.d couldn't fit it in my current space. Repalced it with an LG soundbar that sounded pretty good… it died after 4 yrs. Now unhappily sporting a Polk Audio soundbar that I am actively intending to replace.

    My first system was a few hundred dollar sony avr with satellite speakers I put on stands. Small little things. Your review reminded me of back then and I thank you. Now my main struggle is the Denon x1600h or the Sony 1080. I am pushing klipsch R-620F's now, planning to add center, ceiling, and subwoofer. No space for rears.

    My first theater speaker system was an Energy Take Classic 5.1 system with a Yamaha rx-v675 receiver. That Energy speaker system was good enough that I bought another set a few years later. Nice aluminum dome tweeters with 4 inch mids and surprisingly potent 8 inch powered, ported sub.
