Point being, if you’re willing to wait discounts can be had weather it be through Monoprice direct or Monoprice on eBay or other outlets.
IMO the Monolith subs are reasonably priced without a discount.

No port noise here either running the 12’s -7 hot and AVR at -24. Just watched Tron tonight and Aquaman & Spider-Verse last weekend.

I ordered one and it says to contact monoprice to cancel or makes changes. Paid with paypal incase there is any issues.
This will be a replacement for the 8” that came in my premuim box set. Was going to do dual 10 but the price was good on this to just try one 12 and order another later if i like it.

Had to snatch one of these 12's up given the rakuten deal. As others have said, it ships from Monoprice so I am not too worried about it getting to me. Plus I used PayPal for protection.

I hope this is going to be a great upgrade to my previous dayton audio sub-1500. It is a nice sub, don't get me wrong, but THX certified is bound to sound much better. Can't wait!

I'm also going to be buying some white birch to add to it, as the wife wants an end table. Should be a fun little project!

I hate Rakuten because they screwed me by cancelling my last order for no good reason. But that was part of their stupidly-aggressive fraud prevention and only speaks to their incompetence. It's a perfectly reputable site that has been around for quite awhile. They've acquired major sites like Buy.com and Ebates. Also, Rakuten is just a marketplace now. You're really buying from Monoprice, as you said, so the worst thing Rakuten can do is cancel your order for some stupid reason. There is some obnoxious stuff on Rakuten, like sellers who will have items at high prices because they are just purchasing and drop shipping from a major retailer. But that kind of thing will happen in any similar marketplace, like eBay. There could also be dishonest or incompetent sellers, like on eBay. But there is no reason to be concerned about buying from a trusted major retailer through Rakuten.

I am going to add white birch around the existing subwoofer cabinet and make that in to an end table. White birch is a type of wood, and wife thinks it would make a good looking end table :P

There's a cheaper alternative discussed here. $6 in parts. Feet from Amazon. $4 plus screws.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!
