Impressive performance and value

MTX's TNS52 5-1/4" component speaker system will take your in-car audio experience to the next level, whether they're powered by a factory radio, an aftermarket car stereo, or a small amp. The system handles up to 35 watts RMS (70W peak), and includes two durable polypropylene woofers and two separate 1/2" Mylar tweeter.  Mount the tweeters up closer to your ears instead of down by your feet, and it'll sound like the band is playing on your dashboard. 

Speakers were easy to install with the installation guide and the sound was definietly an upgrade from my stock speakers. For the price, they can't be beat.

Features

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeters can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or angle mounted. The angled mount is a semi-surface mount, because most of the housing sits above the mounting surface, but a small portion is counter sunk into the panel. The tweeter can pivot in the flush and surface mount housings.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Frame Width Frame Length Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 1.842" 1.842" 1.643" 0.113" 0.91"
Surface Mount 1.892" 1.892" N/A 0.87" 0.54" (Screw Depth)
Angled Mount 1.783" 2.11" 1.4" x 1" 1" 0.764" (Screw Depth)

Crossovers: The tweeter crossover is built into the tweeter casing. The woofer uses its natural mechanical frequency roll off.

Woofer Mounting Adapter: The included adapters can be used to mount the woofers in many 5x7 and 6x8 applications. There is also a knock-out on each bracket where the tweeter can be mounted.

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.
