I'm sure it's the Monolith but, I suppose I just need some confirmation I'm making the right decision. I can only get one around this price range right now due to WAF but will eventually get a second. This is essentially the final piece in the audio portion of my HT.
I would hold off until you can get the Monolith 12. Your room by itself is 3800 ft^3, which is considered a large room for a subwoofer. The Monolith 10 is better suited for a smaller room. Dual Monolith 12's are going to be much better suited for your room than a pair of 10's. I would look onto upgrading your speakers to some a bit more capable first.
