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.
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.
