I'm just weird about the weight thing lol. I know it is dumb. The Weight is due to the type of power supply it uses though so that makes me hesitant. The Monolith DOA has been resolved. It was the trigger wire that was causing the issue and is fixed now. I will give this one a try and if it doesnt end up working out then I'll get another Emotiva. I have their full speakers and love the Emotivas.
You will be all buffed up after lifting those Monoliths lol

That's awesome you got it all figured out :)

Have fun!

If you are concerned with audio quality and a solid built amplifier get the 7220 and be done it is an amazing amp and dead silent. Check out this review and this guy is picky as he has tested many amps. Wow i am looking at Outlaws site and the price of this amplifier went up to $3500 ouchhhh it was $2800 after the pre order pricing ended lucky i pre-ordered it. With that said this amp has amazing sound quality and fantastic bass control.



If you are curious about the difference between the Emotiva & Monoprice and a few others for sound quality review watch this video.

I got to ask - how does an amp have “fantastic bass control?” My 2200s don’t feature bass controls :rolleyes:

Did you mean "I have to ask" Got is not a word;) I was referring to the (Damping Factor) of the amplifier:cool:

Just ordered a 7000x. I was caught between the 5000 and 7000x.... I hope I made the right choice!

Btw, I ordered b-stock from outlaw by using some shady looking form.... has anyone else ordered that way?

That's how I got mine.
The 7000X is an amazing amp.
When I first got the 7000x I compared it to my reciever (pioneer sc lx801) the reciever in stereo mode had more punch to it when turned up but the highs were a little harsher. The outlaw amp was slightly cleaner sounding. I was surprised that the reciever seemed it had more bass to it.
Well the more I listened i realized that the amp was more controlled and you could hear the change in the bass notes better.
Now where the BIGGEST difference was when I was using all the channels. The amp was so much more powerful pushing 7 speakers.
Again I played with it more and found that the outlaw amp can put out bass that the reciever struggled with. When listening to anything with all channels driven(weather it all channel stereo or what ever surround sound mode you may be in) and the subs are turned off the reciever send more low bass signal to the front towers. It makes it sound as if there is a sub. This is where the outlaw shines. It allows the speakers to push out so much low bass while still keeping it in control. The receiver muddied it up and couldn't give the same sense of having a sub. The reciever just didn't have the power to push my towers like that cleanly or with the same authority.
This was definitely a worth while purchase. So glad that i got it. My b stock 7000x is performing flawlessly.

Oh one last thing if you listen to you system turned up do your self a favor and get a fan. This amp does get hot

Fantastic...I’m really excited and figured I might as well pay for the extra two channels to power all ear-level speakers... the sr6012 really doesn’t have enough juice for my speakers in the open space they are being used.... really glad to hear that the 1990’s order form they used was legit....

Do you know if sound and vision took any measurements of the 7000x? I’m hoping it outperforms specs like the model 5000....

I received an email from Outlaw Audio, there was no link to their web site. I looked on the Outlaw Audio web site and do not see any mention of this promotion. I can send you the email if you like.

The "4 PIECE NIOSH N95 RESPIRATOR MASK OUTLAW AUDIO PROMO" offer was sent out by Outlaw Audio via email.

Here is the link found in the email:

Mod Edit: I wondering why Outlaw would send out an email link from a company called eastern Imports??? And there is no mention on their site. I suspect it's a phishing email you are receiving. I wouldn't want anyone hear to use the link until it can be verified by Outlaw Audio directly.

Sorry, but I think it's better safe than sorry.

I received the same email and it did come from Outlaw Audio. It is not a phishing email unless the company was hacked.

No problem. I have no interest in ordering masks from a Chinese company.

The attached pdf has the email from Outlaw Audio. I presume Outaw Audio has relationships in China since some of their amps are built in China. HST, it does seem a little odd that they are promoting this mask company.

That's interesting. Well it certainly looks legit. Thanks for supplying the email. Much appreciated.

It arrived and it is in fact AMAZING.... I somehow overlooked how heavy this thing is... almost died carrying it down to the basement and then again trying to put it on the bottom shelf of my console!
