2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
3 might seem like a low rating but its average. Don't get me wrong, I love this sub but for the price and more for a LOC so I don't have to splice wires, it is kinda expensive. Not only that but MTX doesn't supply instructions on connecting this. They claim that they don't know what vehicle its going into so they can't supply instructions. I reminded them that this is a VEHICLE SPECIFIC enclosure so you know EXACTLY what vehicle its going in to. Anyway, I got tired of messing with them and ordered a PAC line out converter that plugs into the factory harness. Now about the SQ. That's a mixed bag. On some songs this thing hits good and sounds awesome. On other songs the bass is either muddhbor over lowering. It is absolutely necessary to connect and use the remote gain control or EBC as MTX calls it. I never had that issue with other amps. Gain was a set it and forget it deal. Probably has something to do with the factory head unit and its proprietary EQ curve. That being said, if you just want to compliment your factory system or just round out a mild aftermarket system, this is what you need.
Pros: Good SQ. Small size. Ease of mounting.
Cons: Non existent wiring instructions from MTX (Crutchfield to the rescue). Need to constantly adjust the gain as if it were a bass control.
