The heart of the matter

The Inverted Apex Surround increases the cone's surface area for better volume displacement and a higher SPL. This sub's sophisticated suspension system offers better control over cone movement for more refined bass. MTX's venting system keeps the voice coil cooler for optimum performance over the long haul. Put this 2-ohm model in a sealed or ported enclosure, power it with a mono amp, and you've just created a cost-effective recipe for adding a solid kick to your music.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 250 and 375 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Clean bass for a good price.

I was a little skeptical of the price of this sub woofer at first. All I can say is wow!! I replaced an old school Earth Quake 12 with this. What a difference several years in technology can make! I have a small prefab ported box behind the passenger seat of my 2001 Silverado, regular cab. With one MTX 35 series 12 and the MTX TNF-251 mono amp, this sub brings a responsive punchy bass. I was after clarity and clean sound, not bass that can be heard over everything else in my truck. Because my enclosure is 1 cu ft, the lows are not earth rattling. Trust me, you will feel it hitting your chest! In a small cab this set up is more than adequate. Thanks Crutchfield for the super fast delivery and outstanding quality product. I will definitely be a repeat customer. And yes, I would purchase this sub again!

Pros: Awesome build quality material in the sub woofer is top notch. Good sound in a regular cab truck with a matching amp.

Cons: None

Enclosure Compatibility

Features

Terminals: The woofer features heavy-duty spring post terminals which can accept single or dual (standard 3/4" width) banana plugs, pin connectors, or bare wire up to 10-gauge.

Inverted Apex Surround: The new Inverted Apex surround allows increased cone surface area, creating more air movement and higher SPL.

Progressive Suspension: The progressive suspension controls excursion at high power, thus reducing distortion and improving sound quality.

Spider Plateau Venting: Heat from the voice coil is vented through vents that surround the back of the spider. As the woofer travels back and forth, cool air is pulled in and heated air is pushed out.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: For the best possible sound quality where space is a premium MTX recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 1.0 ft³. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Vented Box: The recommended vented box has a net internal volume of 2.32 ft³ with a slot port 13-3/4" x 2-1/2" x 26-1/4". Vented (or ported) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power.
