Personally, I'd look at going for something a little smaller. The Monolith isn't especially clean at upper frequencies around 80Hz, which the 3005se might need a little help with. I've never got on with my crossover being set at 80Hz with the Monolith whereas I was with my old Servo 15. I think a few independent tests back this up.
The XLS-300 seems to be a well regarded subwoofer although you might have to ask some others as I have no experience with it.

Thanks for the advice sunil just add a nosey at your system very nice indeed
i see your room is quit large i bet that monolith sounds insane i think it will be far to much for my little room.
