Our take on the MTX Thunder1

by Alexander Hrabe
MTX

Power in the mix

Do you like your bass heavy, but your current tweeters can't seem to deliver the high frequencies in that mix? Then take a look at MTX's Thunder1 tweeters. They'll handle up to 90 watts RMS, so you can play them long and hard. Complex sounds like cymbals crashing and upper-range vocals will be reproduced with impressive accuracy, transforming your vehicle's dull soundstage into a vibrant one.

Tweak your tweeters

The Thunder1's discreet design includes a built-in crossover, along with flush- or surface-mounting capability for easy installation in that perfect spot in your vehicle. Plus, you can adjust the tweeters to match up properly with all the other speakers in your installation. And MTX's  impressive 5-year prorated warranty makes the Thunder1 tweeters a smart buy.

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

Crossovers: The crossover's input and output wires are attached. The 12" output wire has quick slides attached so the tweeter is easily connected. The 60" input wires are terminated with tinned bare wire. The crossover point is 4 kHz and the slope is 18 dB/octave.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 1-3/8"
  • Length: 3-7/8"
  • Height: 7/8"

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted or surface mounted using the included hardware. Once installed in either housing, the tweeter will pivot approximately 15° in any direction.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 2.235" 1.967" 0.318" 0.706"
Surface Mount 2.2" N/A 1.035" 0.64" (Screw Depth)

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 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.

These tweeters work great. They provide great highs when you have many subwoofers.
