Our take on the MTX Terminator65

by Alexander Hrabe
MTX

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Terminator 65 tweeter

An inline crossover eliminates the need to install an outboard crossover in your door.

It's time to upgrade                            

MTX is looking out for you. They designed the Terminator Series speakers to put out serious sound without you having to empty your bank account. If you've been dying to replace your burned-out factory speakers with a component system, but haven't been able to justify the expense, MTX takes guilt out of the equation. And with protection under MTX's unique 5-year warranty, this buy is as practical as it is fun.

What a speaker

These Terminator65 6-1/2" component speakers will take your in-car audio experience to the next level. The durable polypropylene woofer and Mylar tweeter are vast improvements over the standard paper cones used by factory speakers. With the sensitivity of these new materials, you'll gain more focus in the midrange and clearer highs, even from the power of a factory stereo. But if you have an aftermarket stereo or amp, you can listen with confidence since these puppies can handle up to 45 watts RMS. Grilles are included for a custom installation.

Highlights:

  • component car speaker system includes two woofers and two tweeters
  • 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer cone
  • 1" Mylar tweeter with inline crossover
  • frequency response: 54-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 89 dB
  • RMS power: 2-45 watts (90 watts peak)
  • top-mount depth: 2"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 5 years (free repair or replacement for 2 years; prorated replacement for years 3 through 5)
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Woofer Cones: The MTX Terminator series speakers feature durable and rigid polypropylene woofer cones. Polypropylene is also resistant to the moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Woofer Mounting: MTX calls the Terminator65 woofers 6-1/2. They fit into standard 6-3/4 and 6-1/2 openings, but the bolt pattern is 6-3/4. In most 6-1/2 applications, new screw holes must be drilled.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted, angled mounted (semi-flush), or surface mounted using the included hardware. Once flush mounted or surface mounted, the tweeter will pivot approximately 10° in any direction.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 1.843" 1.643" 0.220" 0.841"
Angled Mount 2.125" x 1.752" 1" x 1.355" 1.01" 0.35"
Surface Mount 1.888" N/A 0.984" Screw Depth

Crossovers: The high pass crossovers are built into the tweeter frames.

Specification Note: MTX seems to list contradicting power specifications on the box; with the other specifications they list 90 watts peak, but on the front of the box they list 135 watts max power. We've adopted the 90 watt rating simply because it's the more conservative figure.

Warranty: MTX offers 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 prorated amount 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.
