Rare find, Powermonitor 700, one owner (17 years) - near mint... most likely will displace my LSiM703 pair. Always loved the Powermonitor series from Def Tech

gp3ut6sv35ma.jpg

8" powered sub, 250 watt amp, -6db point according to sound and vision is 32hz. Not bad for a monitor!
5.25" mid
1" tweeter

    My great grandma used to have DefTech Powermonitors, great speakers, GLWTS!
    Edit: I just came from BikerBoy’s FS thread, I don’t know why I said GLWTS lol
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
    An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    It's not the volume that makes it intense, it's extension and cleanliness of bass

    Thank you sir, I may mod them, will see

    Trey, I'm going to go check the web for your D.Tech. speaker model and look at your subs on that design now. Back in a minute. I got a glimpse of the subwoofer but also found this; :o
    Definitive Technology
    PowerMonitor 700 Speaker System
    $2,345
    :p B)
    Going back to look some more..Found it.

    Now, my question is: is the subwoofer firm and stiff when you push on it?
    My new Triton passive subs are the stiffest I've ever pushed on. I think I pushed on these active race track woofers and felt the same.

    I'm just wondering if the active sub on your new Monitor 700's kind-of use the same design to get tight bass.

    Yeah, that is really the only info left on the website of them...

    I owned a pair of the PM900 a few years ago and for monitors they can flat out throw down. You almost don't need a subwoofer in a theater with them. I will say the PM700 so far is a little more musical but the top end is a hint bright. The Aluminum tweeter responds really really well to crossover modifications because ol Sandy installed crap everywhere, electrolytics everything... so yeah, anything is better!! :pensive:

    Whats funny is I bought the PM900 as a DIY kit directly from Def Tech, they were just random parts laying around their warehouse :open_mouth:

    Sory, wrong picture.. that was the 350.


    Cool story about the PM900's you brought to life and upgraded the cross-overs too. B)

    Is the powered woofer, stiff and solid when pushed upon?

    I bet the PM900's sounded AWESOME. I've always LOVED Def. Tech. sound. I can only hear up to 11Khz. now though.

  • VR3VR3 Posts: 22,203
    The powered subs are pretty normal as far as spring as it is a slot loaded enclosure versus sealed like most of Sandys designs.

    Def Tech is an odd infatuation with me. They are just fun to listen to... lol

    Thanks, Trey.

    With the slot, I fully get it.

    I'd still have my BP10B's if I didn't need some spending change...TWICE. I've owned 2 sets. The second set was mint in the boxes too. A con-man got over on me when he bought the second set. He won't ever get another chance to buy something from me.

    Always sucks when a deal goes south for whatever reason. Sorry you had a bad one


    I'm also fairly familiar with the BP 10b. Built new enclosures from the ground up that were mirror images, made a huge improvement with that offset tweeter. Also had mixed crossovers but that was before I was doing then

    To this day, I don't see how the quasi transmission line works because it's just a standard port.

    Thanks.

    Man, I missed a lot when I was gone. You've got quite the skills for sure. I don't know about the TL either if there's no channel. But the bass is Amazing on that model! Just like the DCM's.
