  9. My Monolith twin sub

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Here in the UK BK electronics make a monolith sub which has had some good reviews so I thought I would make a sub with 2 drivers and an acoustic resistive matrix loading like the rel studio. Can't seem to find a way of adding pictures though Dave

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I posted this on a UK forum. I thought it might be useful for the Monolith owners I've noticed on here and anybody else with a down firing sub with, shall we say, an active floor covering. I have a laminate wood floor which is foam backed on a suspended concrete floor. Coupled with the...
