Anyone with any experience/feedback on the Monitor 12 sub? Looking to pair a couple with Studio 60's in a fairly large room - I don't really see much feedback on them. Grasshopper seems to have had good performance with Rythmik F12's in a larger room setup - would the Monitor 12 subs be in the same league or is the investment better made in the ID subs? Looking to round out bass in a mostly 2.1 and 5.1 for mostly music? a some TV and HT. Local pricing I can get for Monitor 12 subs is ~899 and Rythmiks would be 100+ or 15" Rythmik F15 at $200+

Don't forget that there are numerous multi-channel surround music media (from SA-CD to Blu-ray music) to choose from that sound spectacular compared to straight stereo, so definitely consider keeping the center with the system and getting some Monitor bookshelves for the surrounds.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I would look at dedicated sub makers for your sub. You can get much more bang for the buck that way. Head over to the subwoofer subforum and ask there.

Non-standard RAIDs can recover deleted files. Anyone who says RAID protection is only for failed drives is lying.

In Canada my preference would be SVS. But, the Monitor 12
Sub has the sub EQ program called PBK which does a great
Job EQ'ing the sub. (Sold separately)

I think I'm going to go with a Monitor 11 5.1 setup, but I am still deciding about what sub to use. First, the room I'm using for my HT is carpeted; would anyone know if carpet will affect a closed or ported sub differently? Or which one might be better suited? Then, I have to decide between manufacturers; I'm leaning towards SVS, but the Monitor Sub 12 also gets good reviews. Decisions decisions...
