Big sound, small space
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchased the MTX FPR10-02 for my 2010 FJ Cruiser. I have a custom sealed box that is .55 cubic feet and filled with Poly-Fil. My head unit allows bridging the rear channels to power a subwoofer down to a 2ohm load. After tweaking my settings and crossover on my head unit I am truly amazed. The sub is getting only 70 watts of power (@ 2 Ohms) and frankly is near deafening with certain music! I can only imagine what this monster could do with a dedicated amp. I fear it would shred my cabinet with sheer sonic force! This is the first MTX sub I have owned. In the past I have used Rockford Fosgate, JL Audio, Soundstream and Cerwin Vega. Been into car audio since the beginning! I am very much impressed. This is a very serious subwoofer. If you are short on space or simply don't want to eat up storage space in your trunk, hatchback or truck cab, this would be a great choice for you. I highly recommend it. Also I want to mention I bought this as an open box special.
Pros: Works great in a small cabinet. Shallow mounting depth. Good sensitivity. Works amazing with low power. Big volume with little effort, does not sound like it's working hard to get the db's out.
Cons: Would like the option of soldering the speaker cable, comes with compression terminals. Does not come with a speaker grill. Not a fan of the silver accents on the basket but will be covered anyways when I add a grill.
