    Can you add maximum SPL in the various modes (THX, etc.) to the spec sheets for all of these new subwoofers? Thanks!

    BEST ANSWER: We will be adding CEA-2010 @2M burst and RMS measurements by frequency in the near future.
    For long term, is a pair of tens as good as the twelves at normal listening levels? Main application music. And what is the trade off in sealed mode vs using an actual high quality sealed subwoofer? And how accurate musically is vented mode vs sealed?
    A shopper on Sep 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: All the Monolith subwoofers are very musical, and I think you will find them to be tight, even in ported mode. The main trade off in sealed vs ported is output down low.
    Under the "Full Specs" section the the frequency response is listed as 31-200Hz sealed with THX EQ, however in the manual it is stated as 20-200Hz for the same configuration. Which is correct?
    New User U on Nov 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We have posted the CEA-2010 measurements for all modes.
    Are the in-house CEA-2010 numbers listed in THX mode or Extended mode?

    Is the 10" driver cast or stamped steel?
    A shopper on Oct 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: All the Monolith subwoofer drivers are cast aluminum not stamped steel.
    For a 20x20 room, would two 10” or one 12” be better?
    A shopper on Feb 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: As a general rule for subwoofer coverage, its better to have 2 subs providing coverage than just one. Two subs will help provide more even coverage at the listening position and provide a wider listening position. Also, with two subs, any modes or standing waves can be dealt with a lot easier with 2 subs than just one. Subs are generally non-directional: your ear cannot tell where sound below 40 hz is coming from. Placing 2 gives you better chances of great sound.
    is there financing?
    A shopper on Dec 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Not by Monoprice.
    Any chance there is a remote included with this model?
    New User U on Sep 26, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No remote but it does have an auto-sensing mode that allows it to turn off when not in use and on when it detects the signal from a receiver
    How are you connecting this sub?
    A shopper on Apr 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: LFE out on AV receiver to LFE in on subwoofer.
    is there a dedicated on and off switch ?
    New User U on Jan 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. There’s a switch that turns on power to the unit as well as a standby on/off toggle. This sets the subwoofer to either turn off after 30 minutes, or to remain on until you turn off the power switch.
    Is the crossover Linkwitz-Riley or proprietary?
    A shopper on Jul 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The low pass filters when engaged on the subs are 4th order Linkwitz-Riley, similar to what is recommended by THX for the AVR or Pre/Pro.
    How to daisy chain a pair, or 4?
    A shopper on Sep 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You would need to daisy chain by utilizing the XLR pass through for 2 or 4 subwoofers.
    Would it be better to get to 10" for a room that is 25 x 15 ( about 3000 cubic ft) or one 12"?
    A shopper on Sep 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I would go with two of the 10 inch twos always better than one. I own 1 10 in monolith I'm getting one more I can't imagine what the two subs will do together the one by itself shakes my house!
    Can it be placed on the side?

    Awesome subwoofers
    I have two monolith 10inch subwoofers. Using balanced inputs these are some of the best subs I have heard/felt. They are day and night difference over another brand I have. The bass is clean and accurate. Musical basslines rollout right. Highly recommend these. Alway go dual if you can.

    Monolith Power!
    I purchased the monolith 10. I was using two Polk 505’s. I wondered before purchasing how much better could one 10 do against two 300 watt 12’s. Wow! The monolith 10 is a beast! Plays cleaner with more depth. The sound quality is outstanding. The power is all there. I will get another one just to improve the room having equal sweet spots. My family thinks I am crazy become the monolith has out preformed two subs. Buy it! My friend could not believe the sound quality. Outstanding purchase.

    Nice, Clean Punch
    I'll preface by saying I'm no audiophile, but a very discerning "pro-sumer." I have an ear for quality sound, and won't settle for thin or inaccurate sound. This sub is phenomenal! Listening to classical and instrumental music, the performance was clean and uniform (Cellos sounded particularly accurate- a feat I find even expensive subs struggle with.) Movie scores sounded majestic, and explosions from games or movies literally shook the wall! (When the wife allowed it to be that loud...) It punches deep when needed (explosions and such) and preforms clean and accurate (music.) Clean is the best word I can describe it with: across all frequencies the bass was very smooth. You would definitely need to experiment to your liking with the settings, but you will not be disappointed!
    I will also mention that Monoprice sent me this sub as a Christmas gift! I sent them a letter (poem actually) and they responded in kind with their own poem! The saved Christmas after my former sub gave out. Still, at this price point, this sub is still a steal of deal! Thank you Monoprice for a great product and great gift!

    Can not be beaten in this price category, period.
    I tested this head-to-head, in-home against a competing sub in the same price category, the SVS PB-1000, and the Monolith was the pretty clear winner. Even with an advantage of having a few days break-in the SVS couldn't compete in extension or output without cabinet resonance and port chuffing. The Monolith was better built, ran cooler under the same loads and has some nice higher end features like the XLR inputs. I think it's strengths lie more towards Home Theater and gaming than music but it may warm up and gain a little more character after it's broken in a bit. My room is ~2600 ft^3, carpet and drywall, square-ish. I'm running the THX 10 Select as part of an Atmos 5.1.4 setup and it's more than capable of delivering a visceral experience when watching movies in my opinion. My full writeup is at AVS Forums.

    If you like really deep, powerful bass, you will like this sub. Easy to set up and tune.

    Well built and high quality
    Packaging was more than enough to deliver the unit unharmed. The woofer is well made and I would definitely order another one for my other sound system. Power okay for smaller rooms, would order the 12 for a larger room.

    Great subwoofer
    The 10 inch size tells you nothing about how good it sounds. Its built like a tank. It made my old sub sound like crap. This is a great sub

    Monolith 10
    While not really needing an another subwoofer I was intrigued by all the good comments and reviews on the new Monolith line. Since the 10" version was the least expensive and would fit in the small space I had, I went with it. So far I'm very impressed with it's performance. It seems to be able to do everything well. Hopefully a year from now I can report back that it's still doing it's thing. I deducted one star in the ratings for the little nubs it uses for feet. I would prefer larger screw in type rubber feet.
