MTX engineering

Trickle-down technology makes the Terminator TN10-04 10" sub a serious value. MTX's exclusive spider plateau venting pushes air in and out of the inner works to keep the 1-1/2" voice coil cool, while the Assymetrical Linear Drive System uses a flat, progressive spider and an extended pole piece to produce smooth, linear movement of the polypropylene cone. The result is a powerful sub that keeps pumping out accurate bass, even during extended, high-level play.

To drive this subwoofer, we recommend a mono subwoofer amplifier that can put out between 120 and 225 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

I bought a pair of these to replace the woofers in my old 102 Truck Boxes. 1 of them has been "blown" for a few years. They are just a bit bigger diameter so I had to trim the boxes about 1/2" larger. The new speakers seem to have better thump to them than the old ones (from what I remember). Running an old 75W x 4 Crutchfield amp in '92 FORD pick up. It's nice to be able to crank up the tunes again and have it sound GOOD !!

Not So Good!

Craig from Roanoke, VA on 5/3/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have had this subwoofer for about 2 months now and when I first got it, it was excellent it hit lows very well and have great bass but my only downfall is that after 2 months it is busted!! I didnt push it to its maximum limitations. Yes i would play it loud but not that loud but bass wasnt turned all the way up on amp or anything is was all set just right. I think this is a good subwoofer for the price. I woudnt buy it again but its good starter sub but not good if you intend on getting sub that will last! if you want sub to last go up in price and search for something better!

Pros: Good price good bass decent lows great starter sub

Cons: busted within 2 months cheaply made

Purchased this Sub to replace a 20 or so year old MTX Blue Thunder that was popping. Put it in the same sealed box (about .76 cu. ft.). Now my mirrors are blurry! Perfect sound for my 2001 Ford Escape.

Pros: Price and Performance

Cons: none yet

This sub really does a good job. Got it on sale, and was a little weary because of the price, but bam, this thing really hits. Would definitely recommend. Have it hooked up to a 125w amp in a sealed .75cf box

Pros: Price. quality, sound

Cons: not going to bother the man in the car next to you

I got this sub about 3 weeks ago and i absolutely love it, it is a huge improvement from my last one. It hardly even has to make an effort to get the car shaking and it makes all my friends jealous and want to buy it off me. Im going to buy another one of these as soon as i can.

Pros: Sounds Great Looks Awesome Easy to Install Love The Rubber Guard where u put the screws in Lightweight

Cons: Makes my other sub look and sound like crap haha

MTX 10 inch subwoofer.

trae from Choctaw Oklahoma on 7/17/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the money you can't go wrong as this is pretty cheap. I have this in a 2000 dodge pick up in a kicker enclosure (the kickers voice coil locked up solid after running a 380watt CES 2006 compliant amp to it, it was rated at 150 RMS like this MTX is). Currently pushing it with a Kenwood 150 watt RMS amp so it matches good. It is a little more musical than the sealed sony 12 sub it replaced. But not as good overall as my Kenwood Excelon 8 inch sub i also compared it with. Then again the Kenwood still sells for a lot mor here at Crutchfield. Overall you can't beat it for the price.

Pros: It is cheap and a brand name. Should be a good blend with factory or aftermarket speakers pushed by a factory or aftermarket head unit with out an amp. Guess i should say pair this with a 100 to 150 watt amp and one of Crutchfields Sound Ordinance boxes and you will have a good mixture of (not overwhelming bass) if the rest of your system is stock/factory.

Cons: Has the flat blade terminals instead of the spring loaded terminals. My friends won't be able to hear it thumping outside my vehicle but then again i purchased it for me to enjoy while driving not people a block away.

Not a bad little sub

Rob from Kona, HI on 4/15/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This sub was included in an MTX thunder form I purchased for my 05 Dodge Magnum R/T. I had a single Infinity 1262w sealed in a spec box on a Rockford P325.1 before I swapped out to the thunder form to save some space. The MTX is just not in the same league and I thought the sub sounded like crap until it started to break in and I was pleasantly surprised it held its own on half the power. Since its a 4 ohm sub and I had it on the same amp = half the power. Its not going to win any awards but I think its a great sub for the price. I am sure it would sound a lot better in a hatch or suv in a well made ported box with enough power. You would definitely need a pair ported in a trunk with some decent power to bump.

Pros: Cheap, decent SQ, good entry level woofer.

Cons: Can't take too much power before it sounds sloppy.

Product Research

Features
Enclosure Compatibility

Features

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.

Enclosure Compatibility

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.

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
for the mounting Depth and mild power handling for the Sub Box In own [ Brian  Dec 17, 2018 ]
A
We have an MTX 10" woofer currently and we (Dad and 4 boys who have all driven the stereo car at one time or another) have always marveled at the quality of sound this woofer produces. However, we have noticed a rattly sound lately, and discovered that the surround has a slit in it, and it's time to replace the woofer. We considered the RF Punch 104 just to try it out, but you are out of stock, so we opted again for the tried-and-true MTX Terminator 10". We are happy with this decision. [ Marie  May 18, 2018 ]

Almost 10 years ago I purchased an MTX Thunderform custom fit box with the built in amp pushing this impressive 10" woofer. After years of abuse the woofer finally gave away on me.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
