I am not a big fan of traditional tower speakers but in a sudden flash of inspiration I wanted to make an extremely minimalistic interpretation of the topic. The electro-acoustic concept is very simple, just one coaxial driver (2-way, point source) placed in a vented down-firing enclosure.
The catch here is in the leg design. Or lack thereof.
Usually hifi speakers sport all sorts of bells and whistles in their pedestals. Monolith is quite the opposite. Simply by stretching facade and rear plate onto the ground I was able to eliminate traditional legs altogether. By jacking up the enclosure there suddenly is sufficient space for cable terminals and large bass reflex port in the speaker bottom.
Less is more. More or less.
