Our take on the MTX TXC.1 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
Get immersed in your music
MTX makes their Thunder Axe separates for music lovers. These speakers use high-quality materials combined with MTX's advanced manufacturing techniques to make you feel like you're at the concert, not just listening to it. From the soaring sounds of a guitar solo to the visceral impact of a kick drum, these speakers will put you in audio heaven.
High quality materials for excellent sound quality
MTX'sThunder Axe TXC.1 tweeters will add high-frequency enhancement to any system. These 1" teteron domes reproduce complex sounds like cymbals crashing and upper-range vocals with impressive accuracy. You'll be able to discern the positioning of most instruments more easily, thanks to the superior stereo image these tweeters create when installed properly. The outboard crossover networks offer 5-way level control to ensure that these fine tweeters mesh perfectly with the rest of your system. And MTX protects these tweeters with their unique 5-year warranty.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install these tweeters in the factory locations.

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.
