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.
Cone: The woofer features a silver polypropylene cone with a raised MTX
Audio and tribal design logo. Polypropylene is lightweight yet durable and
offers efficient, dependable bass response.
High Roll NBR Surround: The woofer features a stitched high roll
Nitrile-Butylene Rubber surround which uses FEA optimized roll geometry to maximize excursion
without sacrificing cone surface area.
Dual 4-ohm Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4-ohm
voice coils that offer flexibility in wiring. When the voice coils are wired in
parallel with each other, the woofer presents a 2-ohm mono load. When the voice
coils are wired in series with each other, the woofer presents an 8-ohm mono
load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel
and each channel will see a 4-ohm load.
Voice Coils: The voice coils are wound
on a high-temperature former to promote high power handling.
Asymmetrical Linear Drive System (ALDS): The Asymmetrical Linear Drive System consists of a flat, progressive spider that
improves suspension and an extended vented pole piece that smoothes out the
cone's linear motion. The result is high output and low distortion.
Spider Plateau Venting:
Heat from the voice coil is vented through metal-mesh covered vents that
surround the back of the spider.
