Features

Woofer Cones: The MTX Terminator series speakers feature durable and rigid polypropylene woofer cones. Polypropylene is also resistant to the moisture and temperature extremes found in automotive applications.

Tweeters: Each speaker features 1/2" and 3/8" Mylar dome tweeters.

Mounting: The TN653 speakers fit into standard 6-3/4 and 6-1/2 openings, but the bolt pattern is the a symmetrical 4-hole 6-3/4. When mounted in a 6-1/2 location, new screw holes must be drilled.

Warranty: Although the speaker reviewed and measured (taken from our first shipment) included information indicating a 1 year warranty, MTX recently changed to a 5-Year Prorated Warranty with the following terms:

  • Years 1-2: Products found to be defective in materials or workmanship during the first two years will be, at Mitek's option, repaired or replaced by Mitek at no charge. The warranty period does not renew, but continues on from the original date of purchase.
  • Years 3-5: The purchase price of an item which becomes defective after the first two years and prior to the end of the warranty period will be prorated and credited toward the purchase of a new MTX product. The amount of proration is determined by dividing the original purchase price by the number of months in the warranty period (60), then multiplying the result by the number of months remaining in the warranty period.

Luis, you get two speakers. Just like the picture shows..If you have a two door vehicle you will get one speaker for each door. [ BILL  Jan 28, 2014 ]
two speakers [ JOHN P  Jan 27, 2014 ]
I received two speakers. One for each door. [ CORBIN F  Jan 26, 2014 ]
2 speakers total, one for each door [ GILES  Jan 26, 2014 ]
It comes in a box of 2 speakers. I ordered 2 boxes ( 39.99 x 2) This gave me 4 speakers one for each of my 4 doors. Hope this helps FYI they sound way better than my stock subaru speakers that are less than a year old. [ LEVI  Jan 26, 2014 ]
It's 2 speakers, so one will go in the front drive side door and the other will go in the front passenger door. I hope that helps. [ EDRAN  Jan 26, 2014 ]
They are talking about two speakers in total. And it will work in two doors if you install one speaker per door. [ BARBARA  Jan 26, 2014 ]

Not real sure about being waterproof....but I can tell you that I have had these for a while and have had no issues at all. Awesome speakers!! [ JOHN  Jan 01, 2014 ]
I bought these for my 99 sierra only because the paper of the speaker was dry rotted and cracked. If yours are water damaged then you need to find how water is getting in the door to the speakers. You shouldn't have water in the doors. Maybe you need new window belt strips which are the rubber strips that scrap the outside of the door glass. When you roll the window down and put your arm out your arm would lay on the belt strips. You should also have a piece of plastic behind the trim panel that GM calls a water deflector. I hope this helps. To your original questions I would say they are not water proof. [ BILL  Dec 26, 2013 ]
Sir, I have run these speakers in an 06 Chrysler Pacifica for about six months now. They sound great and seem durable, however they have not been exposed to water to a significant extent. I would try some XTC or Boom-mat waterproof baffles to keep the water off of them, and put the wire connections inside of the baffle also or protect it with shrink wrap. [ JOHN P  Dec 26, 2013 ]
For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on which speakers will be an easy install. [ Jeff  Dec 23, 2013 ]  Staff
This will depend largely on the set-up in your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation. They will also be able to help you pick out the best speakers for your system and your budget. [ Jeff  Dec 22, 2013 ]  Staff
the price is for a pair correct? [ Chris  Dec 19, 2013 ]
These speakers should fit your vehicle, but may require some modification. The level of modification needed will depend on your factory speaker system. Please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat for further details on your installation. [ Jeff  Dec 17, 2013 ]  Staff
