Smart looks and smarter sound — that's the story of the MTX Thunder6000 series T6104A 10" subwoofer. An mica-filled poly cone is butressed with eight stiffening ribs, so it keeps its shape even when you pour on the power! The cones are coated with spun aluminum for a "bulletproof" appearance.

The NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) surround and gasket are fabricated as a single piece to prevent air leaks around the woofer. Spider Plateau Venting draws cool air into the speaker for better performance. An oversized magnet structure and 2" four-layer voice coil will electrify your ears with outstanding output.

Priced per speaker

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.

Enclosure Compatibility


NBR Surround: The woofer is made with a one-piece NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber) surround and gasket combination.  When bottom-mounting the woofer, the one-piece surround and gasket make an air-tight seal, to prevent any loss of performance due to air leaks around the woofer.  When the woofer is top-mounted, the one-piece surround and gasket combination enhances the overall cosmetic appearance of the woofer. NBR has the added benefit of being resistant to ozone and UV rays for extreme durability.

Mica-filled Polypropylene Cone: The woofer cone is made of Mica-filled poly with a bright aluminum finish and 8 stiffening ribs for improved cone stiffness and higher mechanical power handling.  Concentric rings are molded into the cone and dust cap surfaces to give them a machined appearance. The "MTX Audio" is embossed on the poly dust cap.

Oversized Magnet Structure: This woofer has an oversized (37 oz.) magnet structure, with a 2" voice coil.

Asymmetrical Linear Drive: This system improves linearity and permits high output with low distortion.

Spider Plateau Venting: Heat from the voice coil is vented through metal-mesh covered vents that surround the back of the spider.

Enclosure Compatibility: This woofer can provide extended bass in sealed, vented and bandpass enclosures (see below for more information on enclosures).

Enclosure Compatibility

Recommended Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by MTX range from 0.5 cu/ft to 1.0 cu/ft.  The sealed enclosure MTX highlights on their spec sheet is a 0.75 cu/ft enclosure, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield.

Recommended Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by MTX range from 1.0 cu/ft to 2.0 cu/ft.  The vented enclosure MTX highlights on the woofer specification sheet is a 1.5 cu/ft enclosure, so this is the enclosure recommended by Crutchfield.  One 3" diameter x 11" long port should be used with a 1.5 cu/ft enclosure; a 1.5 cu/ft enclosure with a 3"x 11" port has a tuning frequency of 32 Hz.

Recommended Single Reflex Bandpass Volume: The bandpass box sizes recommended by MTX range from 0.98 cu/ft to 1.68 cu/ft.  MTX highlights two bandpass enclosures on the woofer specification sheet.  One highlighted enclosure has an "S" value of 0.6, and the other highlighted enclosure has an "S" value of 0.7.  The highlighted bandpass enclosure with an "S" value of 0.6 is a 1.11 cu/ft enclosure, with a sealed chamber volume of 0.37 cu/ft, a vented chamber volume of 0.62 cu/ft and a single 4" diameter x 9.5" long port.  The enclosure with an "S" value of 0.7 is a 1.40 cu/ft enclosure, with a sealed chamber volume of 0.44 cu/ft, a vented chamber volume of 0.84 cu/ft and a single 4" diameter x 7.75" long port.

Note: The bandpass enclosure with the higher "S" value produces a more narrow bandwidth with better transient response; the enclosure with the lower "S" value produces a wider bandwidth at the expense of transient response.
