With its noteworthy performance, the Trinity sub has few downsides. One glaring consideration is the size of this sub. Although this subwoofer produces a tremendous amount of thunder, it comes in a physically large package. Although I have never had space constraints that necessitated a mini-cube style sub, the Trinity sub sits in my theater like an oak tree stump. I personally liked the size, because it played a dual role as an end-table, yet those who yearn to conceal their subs may find frustration. The fact is, if you want really big bass, you need a really big subwoofer.
Due to its sheer mass and extreme low frequencies, the Trinity Subwoofer, like all subs, performs best on a solid floor. This sub can turn your suspended wood floor into a rolling platform. To get the most out of this product, as I did, I recommend solid flooring beneath it.
Subwoofers live a fairly thankless life. They sit in the background, often concealed under coffee tables and in corners that are seldom seen. Once they are set up, they are often forgotten about. We consider the best performing subs ones that blend so well you can hardly tell they’re on. To add insult to injury, they don’t even get a whole number, as they are merely the “point one” in a 5.1 system. Subs are like the Rodney Dangerfields of the loudspeaker world, but once you hear a top-performing woofer do its magic, you will not want to live without one. Without question, the Definitive Technology Trinity subwoofer must be considered in an elite class of subwoofers at the absolute performance level.
The Trinity is incredibly tight-sounding and a great compliment to any high-performing entertainment system. It is deep enough to transport you to depths you’ve never been before, yet can stay agile enough to satisfy the most discerning music enthusiasts. At $3,000, it’s not inexpensive when you look at the overall subwoofer market, yet with regard to performance, the Definitive Trinity would be considered a killer at double its price. At $3,000, this subwoofer is a steal.
