Our take on the MTX Amplified ThunderForms

by John Pollard
MTX

Vehicle-specific enclosures with subs? Say what?

Instead of the usual sub in a box, the manufacturer creates a molded enclosure that fits perfectly into a convenient spot in your specific vehicle, housing a high-quality sub. Some enclosures even include a built-in amp, for the ultimate in stealth bass. The advantages? You don't lose much space (if any), your sub is perfectly matched to its enclosure, and your enclosure has a factory look that won't tell potential thieves you have an awesome sound system. Doesn't get better than that.

Crinkled french fries, discarded receipts, old gum wrappers — you probably have everything in the hidden corners of your vehicle except great bass. ThunderForm enclosures fill the nooks and crannies of your vehicle with low tones that stand out, but their factory look blends right in.

MTX engineers evaluate the "sonic signatures" of top-selling vehicles so they can design ThunderForms as custom acoustic matches. Each ThunderForm fits and blends inconspicuously into your vehicle, so you get great bass without losing any space. They're made of high-density polyethylene resin to curb resonances — they deliver bass that's tight, hard-hitting, and way down low. The airtight enclosure provides the correct internal volume to yield optimum bass response.

This amplified ThunderForm comes equipped with a cool-running 200-watt amp that's custom designed to provide optimal power to its 10" FPR subwoofer without straining your vehicle's electrical system. MTX's Electronic Bass Control (EBC) lets you adjust the bass level from the driver's seat. A variety of inputs allow easy integration into your vehicle's sound system, and the included 20' power harness simplifies supplying power to the amp.

This enclosure installs behind the rear seat of your 2005-11 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector on our site, or calling an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.

Disappointed

Written By phoink, Ansonia, CT on Tuesday, October 02, 2012
 
I have installed custom systems an many trucks, so I am not a novice. This is a truck specific box at a premium price, so I expected a harness that was long enough to reach the radio compartment. The power on lead was short and had to be spliced. Fishing the volume control through the truck body was a nightmare. MTX should have put a plug on the end. Even though I loosened the pot, it still works ok. Fit was clean in the plastic storage bin but you might want to pull them out and RTV glue them to the bulkhead first. All my plastics in the rear rattle to the point of irritation. (will be re-doing that) Crutchfield has 300 watts advertised - the box it shipped in says 200 watts. A call to MTX ... tech said it had 300 watt amp. based on the sound output... 200 sounds right. Base is boomy and not as clean as I would have expected for a sealed enclosure. My head unit has sub outputs and I still had to set the gain to max and the external dash pot to max to get enough sound. ( I like tight bass rock and jazz - not hip hop boom) Lastly, the thing makes a big thunk 2 seconds after the power is shut off. I've had and MTX box for my double cab F-150 and it was awesome - - I Regret buying this one.
Pros:
Pretty - Nice fiberglass box - fits like a glove
Cons:
Boomy sound, Short harness wire, poor design of remote volume control- difficult to fish without damage, paid for 300W got 200W amp, thunk 2 seconds after shutoff.

1 question already asked

With this enclosure, do I need to remove the plastic trimming behind my rear seats? Or does it fit directly into the spaces in the plastic trimming and I don't need to do any cutting or trimming or removing [ Alexw  Apr 09, 2014 ]
