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.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install these tweeters in the factory locations.

Highlights:

  • 1" silk soft dome tweeter with mylar capacitors
  • flush- and surface- mounting hardware included
  • swivel feature for optimal imaging
  • power handling: 10-90 watts RMS (180 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 2500-20,000 Hz
  • impedance: 4 ohms
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • flush-mount depth: 3/4"
  • warranty: 5 years (3-5 prorated)
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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

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.
