    hi, thats a tough one... only someone who has heard them both will be able to give you an accurate answer. (i have only heard the b&w)

    the b&w has 500w and a 10" driver - 22hz -3db
    the monolith has 300w and a 12" driver - 15hz -3db

    i would say the monolith should go lower seeing as tho it has the bigger driver, and you are not really going use the full 500w on the b&w... and there is also the £250 diference in price to consider... but BK sell direct so there are no profits to be made by retailers... hmmm. anyone listened to them both ??

    The B&W needs a more powerful amp as the cabinet is that much smaller so that shouldn't be factored into the decision.
