Overview

Our take on the MTX TX5

You've been living with bad speakers in your car for so long, you may not remember what your music really sounds like. Install theseThunder Axe Series component speakers from MTX, and you'll hear your favorite songs in a whole new light. With the 1-3/16" soft dome tweeters mounted up high, it'll seem as though the band is playing a set on your dashboard. The 5-1/4" woofers, which feature an innovative concave design for off-axis response, really dig into the low frequencies, giving you a deeper, fuller sound. And the system's protected by MTX's unique 5-year warranty.

Great price, great features

The system also includes 2-way outboard crossovers – a real bonus for speakers in this price range. You'll also be impressed with the adjustable tweeter levels, which allow you to custom-tailor the highs to suit your music and your taste. As great as these speakers sound running off your factory radio, they'll really impress you when they're driven by an aftermarket receiver or an MTX amp.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received these and hooked them up and I love them. Then two days later one of the mids just stopped working. I called on a Saturday and I didn't have to do anything. The customer service at Crutchfield is amazing!!!!! The man said he would ship me a new one right away so I wouldn't have to take out the whole set and send them back. I just took the one out of the set he sent me and put the broken one back and shipped it back(oh and they sent me a return label also. Thank you Crutchfield!!!!!

Pros: everything

Cons: none

Features

Tweeter 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)

Terminals: The crossover inputs and outputs are set screw terminals; they accept bare wire up to 10 gauge. There are two positive tweeter outputs, offering flat and -3dB output options. The screw terminals have 2mm Allen heads, and are recessed slightly more than half an inch, so a standard Allen head bit for a screw driver will not fit (an Allen wrench is not included).

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 5.0"
  • Height: 1.4"
  • Depth: 3.1"

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.
