Back of the MTX T815-22 15" subwoofer

A tough cast-aluminum basket reduces vibrations that cause distortion.

Built to perform

MTX's T815-22 15" subwoofer features a glass fiber cone that's tough and light, so it can make the most of your amplifier's power while maintaining its shape when the bass gets heavy. This sub can play for hours without overheating, thanks to spider plateau venting that continuously cycles cool air to the voice coils, keeping the temperature down. MTX holds it all together with a cast-aluminum basket that won't add any coloration to your bass.

Bring on the power

These subs can handle up to 600 watts RMS, so make sure you've got an amplifier that's up to the job so they can give you the deep bass you're looking for. Also, the sub's dual 2-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system, and make it easier to add another sub down the line.

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.
