Our take on the MTX XTL110P

by Jo Greene

Who needs a powered subwoofer?

To produce bass, you need a sub, an enclosure, and an amplifier, and it can be little tricky to match them all up. A powered sub eliminates all the hassle, as the manufacturer designs the enclosure to house the sub and amp together. This all-in-one solution is especially useful in smaller vehicles, where there's no room to mount a separate amp, or in any vehicle where you need every bit of cargo space. Powered subs range from small, flat boxes that fit under your seat to larger boxes that go in your trunk.

MTX comes up with a great solution for adding impressive bass to your ride without sacrificing too much cargo room. The XThunderlink XTL110P powered subwoofer combines a 10" sub and a powerful amp in a compact enclosure that'll fit just about anywhere.

10" sub and 135 watts RMS
MTX designed the sealed enclosure to get maximum bass production from the stiff 10" polypropylene woofer. The durable built-in amplifier feeds the woofer 135 watts RMS, producing low-frequency firepower that's on par with that of many larger powered subs.

Customizable for your ride and your style
You can use the gain control to match this sub to your setup, and you have a choice of preamp- or speaker-level inputs for connecting to your system. The included brackets let you mount the XTL110P horizontally or vertically, whichever works best in your vehicle. MTX offers an optional wired remote that allows you adjust the volume from the driver's seat.

5 Year Warranty Terms: This product carries a 5-Year Prorated Warranty with the following terms:

  • 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.

Good When It Works

Written By Devin D, Chicago, IL on Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This powered subwoofer really took me by surprise, when it works it has a surprising punch for such a small package. Unfortunately it seems that it isn't made too well which is disappointing because I've owned a 15" MTX Sledgehammer in the past & it was constructed masterfully! I returned this particular package twice because it died after 4days of use not once but twice. Again its great when it works.
Nice punchy bass. small package with loud sound.
Not constructed well

awesome bang for the buck

Written By Andrew from MD, rockville on Tuesday, June 11, 2013
I bought this to go in my regular cab truck. Its perfect, adds some thump, and for the price you cant beat it. pre amplified, all you have to do is connect it to your battery, and your head unit.

Dont under estimate it, with its size you may think its a joke, but its awesome. if your planning on loosening the bolts to your truck lid, go with something else, like 2- 12's and a 1000+ watt amp
small and doesnt take up room
dont buy this if your planning on setting off car alarms

MTX XTL110P powered subwoofer

Written By Paul, Roseville, CA on Friday, April 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Installed this subwoofer in our 2004 Airstream Classic 30ft. trailer along with replacing the original Airstream installed SONY radio/CD player with the SONY External Input box for the Kenwood KDC-X996 radio. We wanted XM and Pandaora capability, HD radio was also something I wanted to try. I originally wanted the Infinity subwoofer on clearance but it would not fit in the confined area behind our credenza where the Samsung 32 inch LED TV and Denon Blu-Ray DVD player sit. I had to remove the wooden rear panel behind the credenza to squeeze the MTX subwoofer in there but it did fit. Most difficult part was running the audio pair and trigger wire from the overhead cabinet where the radio is installed to behind the credenza. It's a run of about 20ft. Subwoofer main power was obtained from huge battery cables running in the same area as the subwoofer going to my 2000 watt sine-wave AC inverter. I added an extra in-line fuse to add to the built-in one for the subwoofer. The subwoofer works very well, bass is tight controlled for the environment it's being used in. Adds tremendous weight and balance to the existing system before the subwoofer. Movies like Toy Story 3 and David Foster's "Hit Man" really changes the audio presentation from blah to "I want to really listen to this loud!" Although an odd installation, the product works very well and would recommend it to others.
Great quality sound. Not boomy if adjusted properly. Add huge sense of musicality to CD and DVD discs. Compact size and great value. Quiet amplifier, no buzz.
