MTX engineering

Trickle-down technology makes the Terminator TN10-04 10" sub a serious value. MTX's exclusive spider plateau venting pushes air in and out of the inner works to keep the 1-1/2" voice coil cool, while the Assymetrical Linear Drive System uses a flat, progressive spider and an extended pole piece to produce smooth, linear movement of the polypropylene cone. The result is a powerful sub that keeps pumping out accurate bass, even during extended, high-level play.

To drive this subwoofer, we recommend a mono subwoofer amplifier that can put out between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Product Research

Enclosure Compatibility


Spider Plateau Venting: Heat from the voice coil is vented through vents that surround the back of the spider. As the woofer travels back and forth, cool air is pulled in and heated air is pushed out.

Asymmetrical Linear Drive System (ALDS): The Asymmetrical Linear Drive System consists of a flat, progressive spider that improves suspension and an extended pole piece that smoothes out the cone's linear motion. The result is high output and low distortion.

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box: For the best possible sound quality where space is a premium MTX recommends a sealed enclosure with an internal volume of 0.75 ft³. Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music.

Vented Box: The recommended vented box has a net internal volume of 1.45 ft³ with a slotted port 12" x 2" x 20-1/2". Vented (or ported) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
for the mounting Depth and mild power handling for the Sub Box In own [ Brian  Dec 17, 2018 ]
We have an MTX 10" woofer currently and we (Dad and 4 boys who have all driven the stereo car at one time or another) have always marveled at the quality of sound this woofer produces. However, we have noticed a rattly sound lately, and discovered that the surround has a slit in it, and it's time to replace the woofer. We considered the RF Punch 104 just to try it out, but you are out of stock, so we opted again for the tried-and-true MTX Terminator 10". We are happy with this decision. [ Marie  May 18, 2018 ]
Almost 10 years ago I purchased an MTX Thunderform custom fit box with the built in amp pushing this impressive 10" woofer. After years of abuse the woofer finally gave away on me. Very impressed with Crutchfield for still having the replacement woofer and at an affordable price! [ James  Mar 09, 2018 ]
Decided to give them a try for the price. [ Patrick  Jan 11, 2018 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
