Our take on the MTX TX1

by Jon Paulette
MTX

These MTX Thunder Axe Series soft-dome tweeters can improve your system's high-frequency reproduction for a surprisingly low price. Whether you're tweaking your current system or replacing some burned-out old tweeters, you'll be impressed with their performance. You can mount these 1-3/16" tweeters almost anywhere, so you'll be able to improve the soundstaging in a wide variety of vehicles.

The package includes both flush-mount and surface-mount adapters, and the tweeters will swivel in either adapter for optimal imaging. The high-pass crossover uses Mylar capacitors for superior signal integrity, and you can choose between a gentle 6 dB per octave slope or a sharp 18 dB per octave dropoff, whichever works best in your system. Adjustable tweeter levels help you tailor the sound to your music and your taste.

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

Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted or surface mounted; they swivel inside either housing for optimum imaging.

  Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 2.25" 2.0" 0.382" 0.8"
Surface Mount 2.2" N/A 1.106" 0.65" (Screw Depth)

Crossover: The in-line crossovers have 60" input wires and 12" output wires attached. The output wires have quick slide terminals that plug into the 8" wires attached to the tweeters. The crossover slope is 18 dB/octave.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 1.4"
  • Height: 0.875"
  • Length: 3.625"

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.

Cons:
None
