Cone Design: The woofer uses a polypropylene cone with a raised
MTX Audio logo. The NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) surrounds are resistant to ozone
and UV rays for extreme durability.
Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4-ohm
voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in
parallel the woofer presents a 2-ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in
series the woofer presents an 8-ohm load.
Voice Coil: The 1-1/2" diameter, eight layer voice coil
is designed for high power handling and large linear excursion.
Asymmetrical Linear Drive System (ALDS): The Asymmetrical Linear
Drive System consists of a flat, progressive spider that improves suspension and an
extended 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. As the
woofer travels back and forth, cool air is pulled in and heated air is pushed
Terminals: The woofer features two pair of heavy-duty chrome
spring post terminals which can accept single banana plugs, pin connectors or
bare wire up to 10-gauge.
Sealed Box: For the best possible sound quality where space
is a premium MTX recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.5 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
Vented Box: The recommended vented box has a net internal
volume of 1.0 ft³ with a slotted port 10-1/2" x 2" x 22-1/2".
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.
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
