SurgeX makes some pretty expensive looking devices. Seems like their least expensive models have a UPS built in. You can't even see prices on their web site, you have to contact a sales rep for your state!
Whole house is also an expensive proposition.
I point this out as the OP asked about a $10 Monster sub surge. For another ~$45 I suggested this, which is used by a number of members here with complete satisfaction.http://www.amazon.com/Cyberpower-CPS...=5336055023-20
Given the opportunity, JL Audio might well recommend the Gotham sub. Doesn't mean it is necessary. Perhaps you recall the JL factory tour. The demo room had about 5 subs running simultaneously in it, perhaps more. The sound was great but the cost of the subs in the demo room must have totaled about $20,000.
Overkill is great if you have the money and are so inclined.
