Our take on the MTX ThunderForm Unloaded Enclosure

by Jo Greene
MTX

Crinkled french fries, discarded receipts, old gum wrappers — you probably have everything in the hidden corners of your vehicle except great bass. ThunderForm enclosures fill the nooks and crannies of your vehicle with low tones that stand out, but their factory look blends right in.

MTX engineers evaluate the "sonic signatures" of top-selling vehicles so they can design ThunderForms as custom acoustic matches. Each ThunderForm fits and blends inconspicuously into your vehicle, so you get great bass without losing any space. They're made of high-density polyethylene resin to curb resonances — they deliver bass that's tight, hard-hitting, and way down low. The airtight enclosure provides the correct internal volume to yield optimum bass response.

This black enclosure comes without a speaker — you install your favorite 12" subwoofer. For best results, MTX strongly recommends using a speaker designed for an enclosure with a volume of 1.2 cubic feet. The enclosure mounts in the trunk on the passenger side of select 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs.

Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector on our site, or calling an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.

Warranty

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 period.

Great fit - big sound and still have most of trunk!

Written By dnut, Ann Arbor, MI on Saturday, June 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This unit fits great in my 2014 Mustang GT. Love that I can get big bass and still get to the spare tire if I need to. I put in a Rockford Fosgate 12" P3 sub and it puts out some big bass. Note that the instructions say to screw the unit down through the floor of the trunk and then install the sub. I did not do this - I used some of the industrial velcro instead - so far, no movement. I may fasten it to the bolt that sits above it sometime later, not sure.
Pros:
- As advertised, gives you a sub enclosure that fits your Stang without sacrificing the whole trunk. I can still lift up the spare tire cover and not brush against the sub - after I cut the carpet.
Cons:
- It seemed kind of weird that the enclosure would not fit the MTX sub - at least the 500W one which was 1/8" too deep according to the specs. The Rockford Fosgate P3 fits just fine - but I had to screw the grille in separately as it would not fit into the inset. In the end, it all works and looks good though.
