I am selling my Monoprice Monolith K-BAS Bookshelf Speakers. I am the original owner. Less than one year old.
As far as I know, these speakers provide the lowest bass of any bookshelf speaker at their size and price. You will not need a subwoofer in a small room.
Conservatively rated at 9 out of 10. Excellent condition (but not perfect). There are small blemishes on the bottom of the speakers.
MSRP: $500 per pair
Enjoy great bass in a bookshelf space! The Monolith K-BĀS Reference Series Bookshelf Speakers utilize K-BĀS (Kinetic Bass Amplification System) technology to give you low bass extension that no other speaker at this size or in this price range can match. Featuring an impressive soundstage, pinpoint detail, and incredible articulation – all with bass you can feel – these speakers are perfect for apartment dwellers, audiophiles, or anyone that loves great sound!
How K-BĀS Works
A unique cabinet design and a variety of existing speaker port technologies (acoustic suspension, bass reflex, and transmission line) have been combined in a way that simply defies belief! Low frequency sound waves travel through the internal cabinet into a specially designed chamber. This chamber amplifies the driver’s backwave, significantly increasing the kinetic bass energy as the air is accelerated out of the vent. The result is that the frequency response is greatly enhanced and dynamic range is dramatically increased.
