Hard to use spaces that affect loudspeaker performance are no longer off limits thanks to the self-powered wireless Cube. Definitive Technology’s tabletop loudspeaker makes a strong visual impression with its bold, minimalist compact shape that easily tucks into corners. But even more impressive is its robust bass and spacious imaging. Combining built-in amplifiers, digital signal processing and speaker components in a “tri-polar” configuration, kitchen counters, bookshelves and credenzas are spaces the Cube will be right at home in. Tucked into a corner, the Cube’s stunning bass and Tri-Polar speaker array makes it sound more like a full size audio system than a tabletop speaker.
Superior Sound. Consummate Convenience.
Tri-polar Technology for Huge Sound Cube features speakers on two sides, the “nose” and on the top of the enclosure in a “Tri-Polar” configuration. Left and right channels, at a 90-degree angle to each other, create a much wider soundstage with a greater sense of stereo separation. The top mounted drivers include a 5-1/4” woofer and a mid/high driver that fire upward. These speakers add powerful bass and a sense of image height absent from virtually all single box tabletop audio systems.
Bluetooth with NFC Touch-to-Pair
Cube pairs wirelessly and effortlessly with Bluetooth enabled devices to stream music. And devices that have Near Field Communication (NFC) (like Android operating systems) are even easier to pair with. Touch the device to the Cube and they’re paired.
Play It Anywhere Indoors or Out
AC household current powers Cube, but it also has a built-in Lithium Ion battery. While plugged in to AC power, Cube charges the internal Li-ion power pack. And when you want to take the party outside, unplug the power cord, and carry it anywhere you want full-fidelity sound for hours and hours of battery-powered listening. A handy notch on the back of Cube makes it easy to pick up and move.
“The idea behind the Cube, according to Definitive Technology, was to build a Bluetooth speaker that sounded larger than is typical of the category. With small size, usually, comes small sound. To make the Cube sound big, DefTech arrayed speaker drivers all over the cabinet.”
“As you'd expect for a Bluetooth speaker, the Def Tech Cube is portable with a Lithium Ion battery. The battery life wasn't known but expected to be around 10 hours. The Cube we saw was a pre-production model (or maybe one of the first production) and we spent a few minutes listening to it. It had quite a bit of bass and really filled the small, but open, room we were in.”
“Knock you off your seat power!”
“You can spend a lot more than the $1,899 the Super Cube Reference cost, but it would be hard to beat its performance at twice the price or more.”
“Considering all the extremely useful features the SuperCube 4000 has combined with its small size, exceptional musicality, and distortion-damping muscle, I think it’s a spectacular bargain for under $800. Definitive Technology has always had a habit of bringing together the right amount of performance with a knack for the perfect contemporary design in order to create affordable speakers that look as good as they sound (and vice versa). With the SuperCube 4000, the company’s gone one step better and added a package of features that make this subwoofer a true standout.”
