You might have already seen this, but this dropped a couple of days ago.

The M15-S is the only Monoprice product I have evaluated to date.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite...

Youthman did an awesome job putting the Mono15 up against the Pb16 Ultra. So impressed with Monoprice and what you get for the money.

Yes I have measured a similar response in my room, but I have duals so I get extra headroom too. They are very impressive subs, I was able to get my duals for under $2K shipped, I do wish these were closer to $1K shipped. With the new PSA value line it will be hard to beat that price and Hsu has sales too.

Guys,

Whats the general consensus when it comes to service and support for these subs? Any personal experience with Monoprice support when it comes to a sub needing repair or replacement?

Huh. The Rythmik FV25 now has a natural enemy. Which, obviously, Monoprice is aware of since they priced it one penny less!

I see they went with a similar hernia inducing weight.

looking at the dimensions the monolith looks like it may be a little bigger (deeper).

It sure looks that way. They stuck with the proven HDF cabinet, just like the rest of the Monolith line of subs. The interesting thing is to see if they include this sub in future sales, which have been up to 20% off. That would chop $500 off the price and make it less than 2k.

hmmm! I was planning on adding me a second monolith 15, but maybe i can pull off this new sub to go along with my current sub, wonder if that would throw it off too much though as far as balancing it out

I wasn't able to post a link as I have not (yet) earned that privilege. I also could not find it by searching, but there is a deal posted on slickdeals (hot deals) that still shows as active thru today. $325 cash back.

I haven't had to personally, but I did talk to them at CEDIA. They're working on allowing you to swap out individual parts (like a driver or plate amp) that may be defective rather than shipping these monsters back and forth to and from California.

Anyone have some port foam plugs they aren't using? I have a barely functioning 15" that I'd like to try it on. Definitely could use 3 of them this way. Please PM and we can make shipping arrangements.

Sub par customer service in my experience.

"I had to return 2 monolith 12's and it took 7 phone calls and 3 weeks to get a refund. Time is one thing.... but the phone call after phone call of the same responses with promises to get something accomplished really annoyed me. Finally got someone to actually assist me at the end."

As far as returns go when there is NOT a defect you are on your own for return shipping cost. At least thats what they told me. My sub had damage to it and they paid for return shipping..... maybe that's why I got such a run around? They also asked me 3 times for pictures of the damage. Luck for me I recorded the unboxing... the damage could be seen through the box handle before I even opened them.

I bought my Monolith off Amazon and the amp went bad about 3 weeks in and the Monoprice CS was atrocious. Monoprice CS told me I had to contact Monoprice's special Amazon CS team and they would never reply back to me. Once I was given Hobie's contact email, he helped me right away and answered some questions I had. If you're interested in the Monolith subs and something were to go wrong, definitely contact Hobie first.

Thanks for your input. I have 2x M12s and 2x FV15HPs (in different rooms) and I am pretty happy with the performance of both but I am wondering if I should invest more in Monoprice. I want to add 2 more subs in my HT. Although 4 FV15HPs will be an overkill, the fact that Rythmik has a great and reliable CS makes me think that it may not be bad idea to spend more.
