Woofer Cones: The MTX Thunder Series speakers feature durable
and rigid polypropylene woofer cones. Polypropylene is also resistant to the moisture
and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a 1" treated silk dome
tweeter. Silk is lightweight and great for high frequency extension and efficiency.
The tweeters pivot slightly within their housings (approximately 15° in any direction),
so they can be angled toward the listeners to improve imaging.
Mounting: MTX calls the Thunder65 a 6-1/2, and without using
the included woofer mounting bracket, it fits into most 6-3/4 and 6-1/2 openings,
but the bolt pattern matches a standard 6-3/4 speaker. To fit the standard 3-hole
and 4-hole 6-1/2 applications, the included bracket must be used, resulting in the
measurements used to sort what vehicles it will fit. If mounted without the bracket
the depth is 2.056" and the mounting height is 0.636". In most 6-1/2
applications, when mounted without the bracket, new screw holes must be drilled.
