About the MTX Terminator5

Terminate wimpy sound

Put factory sound in your rear-view and step up to speakers that satisfy your hunger for more volume. Those bold, red woofer cones are the first sign that MTX doesn't shy away from making a statement. Then, comes the sound. These Terminator5 5-1/4" full-range speakers will handle a healthy dose of power from an aftermarket stereo or amp, while delivering clarity that far surpasses your stock speakers. The durable polypropylene woofer and silk dome tweeter bring refreshing oomph and clearer highs. Prepare to rock with authority.

Product Research


Point Source Alignment: The recessed tweeter is concentrically aligned with the woofer cone, so sound radiates from the same point for both. This minimizes phase error and allows the sound field to be constant in all directions, improving time alignment.

Grille: The grille has a snap on trim ring that covers the mounting screws.

3 questions already asked

does it come with one or two speakers?
[ Bob  May 05, 2019 ]

When I purchased my terminator 5 (5 1/4) they came as a pair. I also got the terminator 6 (6 1/2) also came as a pair to replace the aftermarkets that were in there. And I'm liking the choice I made on those speakers. I would purchase the same speakers to replace the factory speakers in my wife's van as well.

I have the 5.5" mtx and the bass is good for that size just the right amount.. they are not killers but if you want that then you need subs .
[ James  Apr 26, 2019 ]
It's good ... A lot better than the factory speakers!
[ Joseph  Apr 26, 2019 ]

[ mark  Nov 04, 2018 ]

Yep! Fit and work great.
[ Chris  Nov 06, 2018 ]
I replaced the speakers in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. The speakers I replaced were in the sound bar and front dash. With everything crutchfield supplied they slid in no problems. They sound awesome I feel I got the best bang for my buck. Good luck.
[ Kenneth  Nov 05, 2018 ]
They fit almost perfect
[ Jeffrey T.  Nov 04, 2018 ]
Yes. Speaker has room to move around but all bolt holes lined up perfectly
[ Randolph  Nov 04, 2018 ]
I installed them in a 2004 Lexus RX330, 2006 Toyota RAV4, and 2011 Honda Civic. Each install was slightly different, but they fit well and work well in every car I put them in.
