High Points
• While everyone is trying to cheat the stats for small subwoofers, this monster subwoofer goes to nuclear sub depths, bringing subsonic impact to your system in ways other subwoofers would simply fail to accomplish. 
• Despite being able to go ultra-low at relatively loud levels, the Definitive Technology Trinity Subwoofer is also a "fast" subwoofer. In the old days, subs like the Velodyne ULD-18 could go really low, but couldn't keep up with the speed of the most demanding soundtracks. Now, with DTS Master Cinema and Dolby True HD piping in from Blu-ray sources, you need the speed the Trinity has to offer.

Low Points
• The lack of a slick, automated set-up program, complete with a mic and EQ, puts the Trinity behind the curve when compared to the latest offerings from Revel and Velodyne in terms of the average consumer being able to eke the best possible performance from the Trinity without professional help. Conversely, as it weighs at 175 pounds, unless you are Mr. Universe, you are going to need (and should demand) professional help from your dealer just to get the speaker into your room. They can send their audio guru to help you calibrate it to the best position and settings while they are at it.
• The fit and finish of the Definitive Trinity is okay but not stunning. Other high end-woofers offer more sexy colors and finishes. Definitive is known for their black towers, but also have a Cherry wood finish. It is not MartinLogan's custom shop, but it is also not $10,000.

Conclusion
You can tweak audiophile details all you want, but bring some real bass into your system and feel your movies and music come alive. The power the Definitive Technology Trinity subwoofer offers is the reason why adrenaline junkies buy home theaters. This subwoofer is the definition of extreme and I wouldn't question you once if you decided to put two, three or four of them into your large-scale home theater. Just don't be surprised when a chunk of drywall breaks free from the ceiling from all of the bass energy you have in your theater.
