Our take on the MTX Thunder1 by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
Power in the mix
Do you like your bass heavy, but your current tweeters can't seem to deliver the high frequencies in that mix? Then take a look at MTX's Thunder1 tweeters. They'll handle up to 90 watts RMS, so you can play them long and hard. Complex sounds like cymbals crashing and upper-range vocals will be reproduced with impressive accuracy, transforming your vehicle's dull soundstage into a vibrant one.
Tweak your tweeters
The Thunder1's discreet design includes a built-in crossover, along with flush- or surface-mounting capability for easy installation in that perfect spot in your vehicle. Plus, you can adjust the tweeters to match up properly with all the other speakers in your installation. And MTX's impressive 5-year prorated warranty makes the Thunder1 tweeters a smart buy.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install these tweeters in the factory locations.
These tweeters work great. They provide great highs when you have many subwoofers.
