Their ported model can be plugged up.

Would it be better to go ported then so you would have the option of it being either way? (Ported for ht and sealed for music)

Oh this is sealed. I say get the ported 15! Guys check out the demos of bass EQ. The Finding Nemo demo had some air moving and thought the A/C kicked on. Some of these you'll need to raise 10dB on the master volume see the file names and check the post for the links. https://www.avsforum.com/threads/...t-56612588 it's post #15

Video that explains it all https://youtu.be/MIP1LOPZUm4

Warranty is same as new-5 years. Return shipping is covered, if item arrives defective. Many buyers have reported previously here that the open box ported ones they received were as good as new, with nothing missing/blemished. This is probably similar unless luck is so against one

I don't have this one but got the open box 12" ported and can confirm it was received good as new with no noticeable visible use.

Generally for music sealed is better and ported is considered better for movies etc.

I have to ported version of this. It is heavy. Since this is sealed it is likely SLIGHTLY lighter. This is the first real sub I have had so can't compare to HSU, Svs, etc, but is more than met my expectations in HT. Even the ported version has very tight/controlled bass. I had never heard anything like it. If I am playing music, my house is shaking (three story single family home) at -15 db. Of course, the caveat to all I am saying is that it is based on the ported version (I keep two ports open, one closed)

Hi,

I'm sorry, but why would we think that (what is essentially) a computer cable and peripheral resale company would have the chops to manufacture a THX Ultra sub worth $1K? Don't get me wrong, I love Monoprice. But I can't find anything that attests to bona fides in this domain (or that indicates it's just their label on a well-known maker's product.)

Welcome your insights, thanks!

Todd
They license and rebrand other manufacturers equipment. For example, their Monoprice Monolith 7x Amplifier is manufactured by ATI, a well respected OEM. Their Monolith branded items have been getting traction in the home theater space.
