Overview

Our take on the MTX TX6

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 6-3/4" woofers, which feature an innovative concave design for improved 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.

Note: MTX describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Not a fan of the cross overs but these are clear and loud running a JL slash 75watts RMS a channel amp i love the tweeters very large from what is out there now these speakers over power my JBL's in my front stage .........

Excellent speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had a lot of cheap gear over the years. Once I came across MTX speakers the sounds got better. I started with 3 way MTX and they were good. I put in these component speakers and it was like night and day. Now I have a MTX amp pumping out to the component speakers and they are loud and clear. It's the only way to go no matter what music you like,they even sound good when I answer the phone while driving.

Pros: Easy to install with plenty of mounting options.

Cons: None

Great component system. I just bought the 3500bt pioneer headunit and hooked these mtx speakers to it. They sound awesome with the 8 band eq on the HU, it gives me plenty of customization. It was my first component install, it is fairly easy and straight forward. When I get a sub I will hook these up to an amp to give them more power. The bass is pretty good for mids. The highs are phenominal. I'm very happy that I purchased this MTX component system. I mounted the tweets to the pillers and left the stock tweets in the stock location.

Pros: Awesome highs.

Cons: Bass is a little lacking, but that is what a sub is for.

Features

Woofer Mounting: MTX calls the TX6 woofer a 6-1/2, and without using the included mounting bracket, it fits into standard 6-3/4 and 6-1/2 openings, but the bolt pattern is 6-3/4. The mounting bracket adds 0.162" to the speaker's mounting height (and subtracts 0.162" from the depth) and has the standard 3-hole 6-1/2 and Ford 4-hole 6-1/2 bolt patterns. If mounted in a 6-1/2 application without the bracket, new screw holes must be drilled.

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.
