Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Controls and Inputs
Class D Amplifier: The enclosure contains a built-in 200-watt
Class D (digital) amplifier that allows RCA or speaker-level input. The amplifier
is highly efficient and designed specifically for use with the subwoofers in the
Built-in Low-pass Filter: The low-pass filter frequency can
be varied from 50 to 150 Hz for a seamless transition between the output of this
unit and that of the other speakers in the vehicle.
Auto Turn-On Feature for Speaker Level Input: When the using
a speaker level input signal (with the included speaker level to RCA adapter), the
subwoofer's built-in amplifier will automatically turn on and off with the radio.
Note: The auto turn-on feature does not
operate when a preamp level signal is used; the remote turn-on
lead is necessary.
External Bass Control: The external bass control allows you
to adjust the bass level from anywhere in the vehicle.
Thunder4500 Woofers: The enclosure comes loaded with two
12" Thunder4500 dual voice coil woofers.
Note: The woofers have an
unusual impedance, specifically designed with
the amp, and cannot be replaced with standard
Carbon-filled Polypropylene Cones: Each woofer cone is made
of carbon-filled polypropylene. Carbon adds strength and heat resistance to
polypropylene; the result is reduced distortion and improved reliability. In
addition, the cone is also very resistant to environmental extremes. Each woofer
uses a polyether foam surround.
Asymmetrical Linear Drive System (ALDS): The Asymmetrical
Linear Drive System consists of a flat, progressive spider that improves suspension
and an extended vented pole piece that smoothes out the cone's linear motion. The
result is high output and low distortion.
Spider Plateau Venting: Heat from the voice coil is vented
through metal-mesh covered vents that surround the back of the spider.
Voice Coils: The voice coils are wound on high-temperature
formers to promote high power handling.
Strontium Ferrite Magnets: The strontium ferrite magnets
yield highly efficient speakers.
Molded Enclosure: The molded, high-density polyethylene
resin enclosure resists flexing and dampens resonance.

5 Year Warranty Terms: This product carries a 5-Year
Prorated Warranty with the following terms:
- Years 1-2: Products found to be defective in materials
or workmanship during the first two years will be, at Mitek's option,
repaired or replaced by Mitek at no charge. The warranty period does not
renew, but continues on from the original date of purchase.
- Years 3-5: The purchase price of an item which becomes
defective after the first two years and prior to the end of the warranty
period will be prorated and credited toward the purchase of a new MTX
product. The amount of proration is determined by dividing the original
purchase price by the number of months in the warranty period (60), then
multiplying the result by the number of months remaining in the warranty
