Our take on the MTX TN653

by Jon Paulette
MTX

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Step up your sound                             

If you're looking for a big upgrade in sound without a huge outlay of cash, take a look at the MTX Terminator line of car speakers. You'll be amazed at how much better your music sounds once you've replaced your burned-out factory speakers with a set of these Terminators. And they're protected by MTX's unique 5-year warranty.

Impressive performance and value

 MTX's TN653 6-1/2" full-range speakers will take your in-car audio experience to the next level, whether they're powered by a factory radio, an aftermarket car stereo, or a small amp. Each speaker sports a durable polypropylene woofer, a 1/2" Mylar tweeter, and a 3/8" Mylar tweeter, and they'll handle up to 45 watts RMS. Grilles are included.

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.

Tweeters: Each speaker features 1/2" and 3/8" Mylar dome tweeters.

Mounting: The TN653 speakers fit into standard 6-3/4 and 6-1/2 openings, but the bolt pattern is the a symmetrical 4-hole 6-3/4. When mounted in a 6-1/2 location, new screw holes must be drilled.

Warranty: Although the speaker reviewed and measured (taken from our first shipment) included information indicating a 1 year warranty, MTX recently changed to 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.

big sound for a small price.
Pros:
full audio quality from a pair of door speakers. the price, the tabs on the speakers are large enough to accommodate 1" self tapping screws. these things rail for a single pair.
Cons:
the only thing that I can think of is that you have to mount them directly to the door and remove the factory baskets.

I just installed these speakers in my '94 Sonoma this weekend and I'm very impressed with the sound of the 3-ways.
Pros:
The spec sheets were a big help.
Cons:
Biggest difficulty was trying to unplug the switches for the windows, door locks, etc. which is GM's fault.

SMOOTH

Written By ponchofanatic, Texas on Saturday, February 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers were reasonably priced, and far exceeded my expectations. MTX has proved themselves to me by providing good quality merchandise at an acceptable purchase price. The install was a direct replacement for factory door speakers in my 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt. The hardest part was modifying the original factory speaker housing to accept the speakers. After that, the install was one of the easiest I've ever done. Using the wiring harness adapters, no cutting wires was required. Simply plug and play. The speakers provide ample bass, and also good mids and highs utilizing a factory receiver. I'm sure that would be greatly enhanced with amplification. Very pleased. Thank you.

Quality speakers

Written By Heff, Beechville, IL on Friday, February 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these to replace speakers in my 2006 Chevy Silverado. I wish I had done this years ago. These speakers have good sound at both ends of the spectrum and blow away the stock GM speakers. I don't always listen to music loud, but when I want to turn it up, I like good, crisp, true sound. These speakers provide that. I'm very happy with them so far and would recommend them. They fit in the front door easily and Crutchfield supplied all of the parts that are needed to make the installation a breeze.
Pros:
Good sound; good fit; easy installation.
Cons:
None.

For speakers with a cheap price tag they sound pretty good. I need some new door speakers for my old truck so I decided to buy these and give them a try. Once I hooked them up they surprized me for the price. They sound just as good as my more expensive pair of JBL speakers that I have in another vehicle.
Pros:
3- way Excellent Highs Good mid bass response come with there on connecters for the speaker. They get loud if you want them to.
Cons:
Had to drill new screw holes to mount speaker. Wasn't a real downfall.

Good Sound for the Price

Written By Joe, Hudson, NH on Saturday, February 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased a pair of these MTX TN653 speakers to replace the front door speakers in my '03 Odyssey. I originally installed these speakers powered by the factory head unit. They were a definite improvement over the factory speakers. The bass response was about the same as the factory speakers but the MTX speakers have a much better midrange and treble response. I then changed out the factory head unit to an Alpine entry level head unit. The Alpine head unit improved the sound from these speakers even further and the bass response seemed to come alive. Even though these are a low cost speaker, they have a good overall sound. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who wants to improve their sound experience on a tight budget.
Pros:
Excellent price, easy install, great sound for the price
Cons:
None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased four of these speakers for my dad's '99 Dakota Club Cab. He bought the truck with a Kenwood receiver, but the factory speakers had seen better days. I ordered these speakers and foam speaker baffles for him as a gift. They were easy to install with the included hardware, wiring harness, and adapters. We spent a couple of hours tuning the sound and adjusting the EQ and we both love these speakers! The sound has been improved exponentially! The highs are crisp, mids clear, and the low-end provides good substance with no distortion. If you are looking for clean sound and decent power in a full-range speaker, these are the ticket!
Pros:
Ease of Installation, Good Value, Good Clean Sound.

Good Speakers - Great Deal

Written By BobF, Fredericksburg, VA on Friday, January 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speakers sound fine, especially since the ones in my 2003 2500HD Silverado were inoperative. These are not plug-n-play. The door has to be drilled to match the speaker holes and screw mounted. The original speaker mounting is a snap-in system. The backing clips that accompany the speakers don't work for this application, but one has to expect that these speakers were designed to fit multiple applications. If you want OEM replacements (which I don't recommend) go the GM dealer $$$ or install these instead. You can't beat the price, service, free shipping and customer support.
Pros:
Price and performance
Cons:
Drilling and screwing

Great speakers for the money!

Written By Garret, Anchorage on Saturday, December 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Was looking for a little more kick than my factory speakers in my 1998 silverado and these are great! Nice and clear sound and good bass for a door speaker if you tweak your equalizer right. The free wire harness adapters were great and worked perfect. However, the included door mounting adapters did not work at all! They fit in the door properly but the mounting holes on the speakers are much too far spaced apart to fit where they're supposed to on the adapter and needed a lot of modification to work. Turned a half hour job into a 4 hour job but none the less. The speakers themselves were well worth the money and the mounting hassle!
Pros:
High quality, low price, good bass, clear sound
Cons:
Not compatible with the supplied mounting bracket for my application

Swapped these speakers out with the original factory speakers that were blown to you know what. Since then , these speakers make me feel like I am driving in a new car. They are connected to the factory radio, and I only listen to FM. I haven't cranked the volume up too high yet, but so far the sound has been nice and clean at any level..
Pros:
Great bargain for the price.
Cons:
None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed them in a 2001 nissan maxima. I was able to remove the factory speakers from the plastic enclosures and screw the MTX speakers into them so I didn''t need the brackets sent with speakers. Connected them to a Pioneer DEH 2500UI head unit. Speakers sound great! Although low cost they deliver both high frequencies and strong base. Later was at a stereo store and was able to compare their sound to more expensive speakers and didn't notice a difference.
Pros:
Sturdy metal frame construction. Delivers good sound, both highs and lows. LOW COST
Cons:
none..they are a great buy.

They sound 110% better than the muddy stock speakers.

For that low of price you can't ask for much more! Great product and WONDERFUL step by step instructions! The instructions were probably the best part about this deal, cause you don't have to pay someone to put them in. Installed them in less than 40 mins.
Pros:
Really low price.
Cons:
If your not upgrading from stock speakers then they're not worth it. But the difference between stock and theses speakers is pretty good.

These are not top of the line speakers, bu then again I didn't expect them to be. They do exactly what I wanted them to do, which is reproduce sound better than the factory speakers in my truck. They do that. I'm not an audiophile so I can't tell you if they reproduce sound with the best of them, but they do reproduce sound that pleases me. Can't ask for much more than that. Also, the price was right!
Pros:
Cost, ease of installation, instructions supplied, wiring harness.

got these hooked up directly to a Pioneer DEH-X8500BH no amp. this deck filters subwoofer frequencies from getting to these speakers and I have it set high at 125 Hz, and even so one of them sounds busted straight out of the box day one immediately after install. can't handle any power, but they are ok for the money. I would not buy them again. I need more power handling capacity.
Pros:
inexpensive
Cons:
no power handling, one sounds busted straight out of the box

Not Bad for the Price

Written By Jammed Ear, Carson, CA on Monday, November 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not a bad speaker for the price. This speaker had more mid-range definition. The bass wasn't too bad but it wasn't deep. The tweeters when you turn the volume up start to distort and makes it someone difficult to identify distinct sounds of music. Not bad to replace a blown speaker but will probably upgrade in the future.
Pros:
price, good mid-range
Cons:
highs distort when volume is up, bass isn't that deep

prior to buying 4 of these i've had little experience with speakers. but i did my research and these are sensitive speakers, meaning with little power they'll do alot. i was just looking for way better sound because my speakers were sounding nasty in my 2008 gmc sierra. Best way to explain the sound of these, is sounds really crisp as far as highs, and the bass is freaking awesome from these little things! im definately glad of this decision. and reccomend it for anyone. For this price i think your getting alot more than what your paying for. installing them was super easy. Crutchfield was really helpful with everything. Now thinking of getting a stereo to get better sound out of these speakers!
Pros:
Price cant get better!!
Cons:
non

These bad boys put out some serious sound!

Written By Morty88, Brattleboro, VT on Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
There is not much to say other than that these bad boys pump out some serious sound and never distort! I am often very underwhelmed with the bass response of speakers but these things shocked with me with how much bass they put out. Super crisp highs and very solid lows. Love these things...and for the price?! Get out of town!!!!
Pros:
Awesome sound. Great bass response. No distortion. Crisp highs. Easy install
Cons:
Absolutely non. Simply pair with the right head unit and you will be super happy.

Great for the dough

Written By Rabbit R., Lake County, IL on Thursday, October 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very pleased with these. Despite the low price they are immense improvement over the old, blown-out speakers. It's a 15-year old car and not particularly quiet, so super hi-fidelity was not a big factor, but I think these are superior to the factory speakers even before they blew out. I hear more definition in the tunes, and audio books are much cleaner and less distorted.
Pros:
Price Great Value Good Sound for the money
Cons:
None, really.

Excellent factory upgrade had installed in no time and the sound quality just blows my factory speakers out of the water. I have a 2004 Silverado so if your upgrading make sure you unplug the stock tweeters. I didnt and noticed a busted sound a few days after just to find out the stock tweeters where blow.
Pros:
Awesome for the price

Good speakers but holes didn't fit

Written By Uncle Nehpets, Winston-Salem NC on Monday, October 07, 2013
 
These speakers sound great but they said they would fit my 1988 Subaru XT6 and they didn't. My car has 3 screw holes that are equidistant from each other and these speakers have 4. I had to get a custom fabrication that costed $181. The speakers are worth it but make sure they fit your car before getting them
Pros:
Sound is great

Good, quality speakers, for the right price.

Written By Josh, New York on Wednesday, September 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I ordered these speakers to replace my stock 1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI rear speakers. The system pre-install in my car included an Infinity Amp (too what power specs I am not sure), with quad 6x9 Speakers (front door, rear) and two dash tweeters. So when I bought these speakers I was a little wary of how much punch they would pack when I got them. On a wim, and from my past experiences with Crutchfield (Great service), I decided to hop on these. Once I installed them I was quite impressed with them. They pack a nice little punch to them and hit nice deep bass and the highs are good as well. Wish they packed as much punch as a 6x9 of this quality would, but that is a consumer error of mine. Would defiantly reccomend this product to others, a long with advocate the great job that Crutchfield does with all of the included free necessities you need when installing speakers and other units.
Pros:
Good Highs, good lows, a good quality build, for 40 dollars? And you get everything you need to install it with the ease of assistance and help offered through Crutchfield.
Cons:
Well, don't know if it happened in the UPS Warehouse or not, but it looked like package was damaged on the way, looked like a rod went through it and there was a small (<1x1 cm) rip in the surround of my speaker. However, it caused no damage to the overall quality of the speaker and it still sounds great.

Great depending your vehicle

Written By Samuel M, Quebradillas, PR on Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Read this carefully. I originally bought these speakers for a 2009 Toyota highlander for my mother (only aftermarket radio, Kenwood BT555U (great radio), no amp, or sub whatsoever). The sound was very clean but had no bass compared side by side with factory speakers. My guess was that the door wouldn't help. The reason I give these speakers 5 stars is because later I installed then in an 1995 Isuzu trooper with an old kenwood (excelon X591) stereo and old amplifier (KAC7201), then the speakers came to life and sounded great with an incredible bass. My guess is that the doors in the trooper are better suited for these speakers. Last but not least, value is awesome. Service from Crutchfield as always is great, and free shipping to Puerto Rico makes it even better!
Pros:
Price, Bass (depending on vehicle)
Cons:
None

Why buy more expensive speakers when these sound so good?....Awesome for the price! Other reviews are right.....more bass than factory speakers and more volume at lower levels on the dial. Very satisfied....can tell the difference right away!
Pros:
More bass.....more volume.....better sound!....
Cons:
A little tricky installing the adapter mount but well worth it!
