If they throw a 20% off sale on this bad boy, I may just cop me one.

I'm hoping Audioholics gets to review one, since they already tested/reviewed the similar Outlaw.

Does this company typically do a Black Friday 20% off or something similar?

I noticed this morning that the 10" is shipping. For a 10" sub it's weighing in at 72.5 lbs, what a beast. I'm looking forward to reviews to come out on the whole Monolith lineup.

I've got the 12" now. It's my first real sub. It shakes my house but sounds very very clean. I'm strongly considering getting a second one. The depth it adds to music really surprised me. I didn't know what I'd been missing my entire music listening life. I wish I could compare it to other high quality subs to give a comparison.

Congrats! Have you put it to the test with some intense LFE movie scenes? Any pics you could post?

Thanks. Yes, I've watched Hot Fuzz, Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy at close to reference level. The quality of the bass is very different than what I'm used to with the inexpensive htib Onkyo "sub" and the 12" Monoprice 150W "sub". I realize now that a large part of the bass they made was mostly harmonics. The Monolith 12 sounds so clean comparatively. At first the sound seemed lean vs. my previous sub. Now that I'm used to it, I just hear clean, precise and articulate bass from it. My placement isn't ideal and I think that's responsible for less mid-bass than I'd like. I've just ordered a second Monolith 12 to even my room response and get a little more headroom for when I want to really shake the house (not that I really need it). I'll post a pick a little later today of the Monolith 12 in my setup. It's a big sub for sure. Good looking though.

I checked it out this morning and applied the discount to the 12" model. No discount on the sub but they are offering free shipping with it. The shipping is by freight and would otherwise be $278. to Oregon without the code. So there is some savings.

I was hoping to pick up a good subwoofer for this BF but seems like the only good discount I see are for subwoofers is the 12" NSD SVS subs.

I meant for a 12" sub. 85lbs is some monster weight for a 12" sub. OMG, that Captivator is huge!!!! There is no chance that I can have a single 18" let alone a dual 18" sub in my home.

I don't know if the specs are correct on the Monolith 12", but it shows the weight being 98.5 lbs. That's well over 30lbs. more than the 65.6 lbs. the PB-2000 weighs. Csbinet is also a bit larger for the Monolith over the PB-2000. It certaibly is a monster for a 12" ported sub.

I haven't weighed my Monolith 12, but I have no reason to doubt that it weighs less than the specs indicate. It's a beast. A handsome beast though.
