Best deal I think I've seen on this sub. I have not personally tried many subs but this one came highly recommended and does not disappoint

Monoprice had this for $375 a few months ago. Still yet, 15% off on this great sub is a good deal.

I am trying to decide between Monolith 10 and SVS PB1000. If this is a good price then I may just pull the trigger.

Any advice?

From what I've gathered on reddit and the AVS forum, the Monolith 10 is generally the better sounding subwoofer. SVS will have a better warranty and customer service.

I have both subs and the Monolith is the better performing and better built sub. Both have a full 5 year warranty.

My living room is about 12' x 18', but opens on one of the 12' ends to another room that is nearly as large. I live in an apartment so I can't shake the whole building, but I would like a bit more bass than I get from my smallish QA 3020 bookshelf speakers. Would this 10" sub be a good option for me?

Received mine, I adjusted and trouble Shooted everything I could. My 80 dollar Polk sub psw10 puts out more bass. It also blinks red and green constantly so pretty sure it's just DOA. After several power cycles it comes on for a little bit but I was expecting something that could knock pictures off the wall. Can yours get crazy loud if you crank it up? Just trying to get an idea of what a working one can do so I know what to expect if/when I get a working one.

If it's blinking red/green, then there is an issue. DO you have it plugged into a power strip or directly to the wall? I would turn it off, unplug it for a while. Then go back and plug it in and turn it on. Be sure you are using a good RCA cable to connect it to the receiver. Did you do a sub crawl to get the best placement? Did you run auto calibration on your receiver?

The tech guy asked same questions, I changed it straight to wall outlet, but am I too assume you can't run this on a power strip? I tried multiple sub cables, as far as there quality they are gold plated, shielded, etc... not familiar with a sub crawl but I did check the sub setttings I have it set at 0db. I have a 7.2 amp so plugged psw10 Polk back in under same conditions and it's considerably louder. It's a 50 watt nominal sub with a 100 watt max peak. I figured if this sub is running 500 watts then surely it would be louder so that's why I was asking what your experience was as far as loudness. Right now I am getting more bass response it seems out of my towers then I am this sub. I had it off all day and managed to get it to go solid green for a bit and once again it's just barely feeling like it vibrates.

If the sub light is staying green, you are good to go. I have no idea how you have it set up, nor do I know how you have it placed. Placement in the room is the first and arguably most important step. If you have it placed in a poor performing spot relative to your main seating position, then it's not going to sound good no matter what you do. You could be sitting in a "null" or dead spot. Sub crawl will determine the best spot to place it. The PSW10 is a lousy sub, so there is obviously some major placement and/or settings issues with your receiver and sub amp.

Well I'm sitting 10 feet from the sub, at this point it's facing straight at me. I had put it in the exact spot at the Polk before and it sounded the same which is two different locations at this point. So again, in your experience does your sub get really loud? I'm not trying to split hairs on quality or placement but low frequency sounds travel crazy far in general so within 10 feet of any high powered sub I would expect to feel it and hear it extremely loud. I have turned up the gain and almost no change. I'm thinking just because I can unplug it and power cycle a bunch of times to get a steady green that chances are it's not working right regardless. My belief is the amp is not working correctly. I would love to tear it down and test voltages on the amp itself but I'm not gonna risk losing out on warranty claim since it's brand new. Sounds like you have some extended experience with yours so loudness levels... what say you sir :-)

As I mentioned, I have no idea how you have this set up in your receiver or the sub amp. What brand receiver are you using and have you run the auto calibration/mic set up? Also, just because one sub works in a spot doesn't guarantee a different one will operate just as well. You really need to do a sub crawl to find the best performing spot. Also, the amp gain/volume knob on the Monolith subs tend to have to be turned up rather high in comparison to most other plate amps.

I do appreciate your insight and experience on this sub but you keep missing what I'm asking... in your house... does this sub (your sub not mine) have the ability to get really loud. Shake the house loud. I am asking because the only two posts I have seen about alternating red/green light blinking made the comment that even when they got it to work it didn't seem loud at all to them. Unfortunately in both cases they just decided to return the subs so never got to see a resolution that said "got another and this one is nice and loud".
