Our take on the MTX FPR10-04

by John Pollard
MTX

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Shallow sub, intense bass
MTX built the FPR10-04 subwoofer to give you big bass in a vehicle that that doesn't have room for traditional large subwoofers. This sub comes in at only 3-3/8" deep, so it mounts in low-profile enclosures that'll fit almost anywhere. This sub handles up to 300 watts RMS, and delivers the kind of powerful performance that you'd usually only experience with a traditional sub. A pair of these 4-ohm subs work great with your mono amp, or use a single sub for a 2-channel amp that's bridged to mono.

Durable design
You can push the FPR10-04 hard, and it's built to survive in the tough car environment. A lightweight aluminum dustcap protects the polypropylene cone, while the rugged rubber surround offers long-lasting durability. MTX's unique Spider Plateau Venting keeps your subwoofer running cool during intense jam sessions. This sub requires a sealed box.

Warranty

5 Year Warranty Terms: This product carries a 5-Year Prorated Warranty with the following terms:

  • 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.

Good for the size and money

Written By Jeff, Memphis, TN on Sunday, January 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this sub to fit under the passenger seat of my Scion Xb. I couldn't get the necessary box size to work with my space restrictions so I went to the back hatch. I'm pretty happy with it as a low profile sub, but not compared to a larger sub if you are looking for super low frequencies. HOWEVER, if you have a smaller car or truck and are worried about install size I don't think there is anything better for the money. This thing SLAMS and sounds great, even for one low profile 10". I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is worried about space or doesn't have a trunk or hatch to work with.
Pros:
Small size, clean sound. Great value.
Cons:
Not getting the low frequency response I hoped for from MTX. Could be that I am used to 12's...

Pros:
Good sound, quality build
