Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great subs and amp. Sound good. Easy to install.
Pros: Hit hard Easy to install
Crutchfield: Sealed and ported subwoofer boxes
You want to take your bass to the next level, but you don't want to mess with matching up subs, a box, and an amp. This MTXTNP212D2 bass package includes a powerful mono amplifier and a pair of 12" subs loaded in a sealed box. Install this setup in your car to get the rumble your system's been missing.
MTX starts off the package with a Terminator TNA251 mono amplifier that'll provide up to 250 watts RMS, a nice match for the two 12" Terminator subs that are also included. The subs come mounted in a rugged sealed enclosure made from 5/8" MDF that'll give you that low-frequency reinforcement you're looking for. And MTX protects this bass package with a 2-year warranty.

Great subs and amp. Sound good. Easy to install.
Pros: Hit hard Easy to install
These sound really good so glad I bought these
Not too much bass but still enough to make your car rumble if you want. Great sound too
Sounds great and looks good
Crutchfield does it again. So happy with my purchase. Subs hit hard. Great for the price. I have been a customer of crutchfield for 15 years and spent tons of money with them they never disappoint. People have said the Amp overheats, have not had that problem. People said MTX ships too slow did not have that problem either.
Pros: Price, quality and shipping time
worked great hits hard! Very good deal.
Subwoofers and the amp are a good match. Made it a lot easier to get the best sound system in a bundle instead of guessing. Sounds great but I would like mtx to offer a ported enclosure option for some people to have a ported or a sealed enclosure option. Other than that I am pleased with the mtx bundle
Pros: Sounds good
Cons: Should have a choice between a ported or a sealed enclosure
I love Crutchfield. I love dealing with them. I've purchased all my car audio equipment from them for 20+ years. The last thing I bought through them was shipped directly from MTX and the amp was defective. Been waiting on the replacement for awhile now. Can't blame Crutchfield though. They processed the return right away but I wish it was being shipped from them instead of MTX. It hasn't been a pleasant experience dealing with MTX. But since this review is on Crutchfield they get a 5 star. If this was rating MTX is would be a 1.
Pros: Crutchfield has handled everything as great as they could.
Cons: MTX is very slow and unresponsive.
Fantastic product, best bang for the buck. This is the 2nd one I have ordered and am very pleased
Cons: Takes some space.
I put them in my 1998 Dodge Dakota and they bump hard. They sound really good and it comes with a knob so you can crank the bass or just relax.
Pros: Bumps hard
This package hits pretty hard. Although because of my lack of knowledge I had to call customer service to figure out how to set it up. The guy in customer service was very helpful. This package fits in my 09 lancer without a problem. Only down side I have come to is that they don't send a wire kit so you have to buy that yourself.
Pros: Hits hard Fits in my car Support is really helpful
Cons: No wire kit
Very nice sound and full bodied shake, definitely a pair of subs worth the money
Love mtx products would recommend them to everybody that I know because I have a very good products and last a while
works great sounds great - others say it over heats not really found that - mounting has a lot todo with heat dissipation ran for 3.5 hrs drive and was warm but no clipping or cutting out
Pros: easy install and hookup system is balanced well
Cons: size of box limits space installed
Absolutely great subs, the box is great quality, they hit hard and make a great addition to any audio system!
Pros: Great sound Hits hard Great price
Cons: Amp seems to be underpowering Have heard complaints of amp overheating.
Great sound, solid construction on the box, plug n play for an amazingly low price. Very happy with the purchase.
Rattles my car pretty good for the price. Bass quality was very good and loud. Difficult installation and amp gets extremely hot.
Pros: good price and quality sound
Cons: difficult installation and overheating problems
Excellent bass response from the package, enclosure is solid and looks like it will hold up well
Pros: Match package of amp and speakers
Cons: Would be nice to have 2 separate enclosures
I installed the MTX subwoofer package in my daughters truck and the installation was a snap. It look really good and sounds decent for for the price. The only issue is the subwoofer volume control does not work. I'm still troubleshooting the issue and sure it is something very simple that I am forgetting.
Pros: Good price, well built and very easy yo install.
Cons: Amp should have more power to push two 12's.
I should have listened to the bad reviews. You get what you pay for. Was optimist, hoping for mediocre performance for my commuter car. I would have been happy with that for the price. The amp is garbage. Has no power and overheats in 5 min. Installed it on a Friday night and my first drive to work on Monday morning just did not have much punch which was disappointing. My single Phoenix Gold 12 in my truck and single Kicker 12 in my vette just murders the 2 MTX's. On the way home the amp shut off 5 minutes after I left. Pulled over and found it shut down due to over heating. It came back on after 15 minutes then cut off again after a few minutes. Did this 4 times and I just turned off the music because I was so aggravated. I would return the whole system but not going to pay to ship it back. I will put that money towards a new amp. I think the subs will perform OK with adequate power. Anything is better than them not playing because of a poor quality amp shutting off. Never had this issue with Kicker, Phoenix Gold or Rockford. Now I will have more money invested than if I bought better stuff to begin with. Shame on me for trying to save a dollar. Reviews are the same on the MTX website also. Sorry MTX but had not bought your products in over 20 years and will not be buying any again. Kicker all the way.
Pros: Subs and box are OK for entry level components and will probably perform reasonably well with proper power.
Cons: Cheapest amp ever. No power and overheats in 5 minutes. MTX needs to quit selling this amp. Ends up being a more expensive deal once you purchase a good amp.Crutchfield response on 6/24/2015 Whenever you encounter a problem with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, especially a situation like this, please contact our customer service or tech support teams right away.
Bought this product for my boyfriend and he loves it
Pros: really great sound
I installed these in my 2014 Ford Focus titanium, lets say it's the life of the party many nights after work.
Pros: sound, bass, fits in back of my small car trunk
Cons: only thing I didn't realize was both subs are connected together
Had best buy install this with a new radio in my 2006 Hummer H3 with Monsoon system and the two work together wonderfully.
Pros: Price, and the fact it's a paired so it takes the guess work out of figuring out what you need.
Great product hits hard and loud!!
assuming you mount everything well you wont have a problem with the amp overheating, all the reviews talk about it overheating or being to small of an amp but this is a very well matched combination sounds great very loud and looks good too. great combo for the price
Pros: Loud, clear, tight bass, everything is paired well
Cons: It does ship from a separate supplier then Crutchfield so make sure you are prepared to wait just a couple more days if you order a deck with this
These subs hit super hard, and clean! Great for the price. When I first installed them, and was tuning my amp my neighborsccame out, and yelled at me. Haha. All my friends compliment my sound system, and ask me where I got them. They go great with my Pioneer speakers, and Sony head unit.
Pros: Subs are amazing.
Cons: Amp is small, but great for price.
Good price Good Quality.
Great beginner package. Easily installs
Pros: Matched components
Cons: Doesn't come with any instructions or info on the amp or speakers
The speakers are nice, however they can handle much more than what the amp is supplying. Also, the amp is getting really hot and that worries me. This set should be paired with a larger amp in my opinion.
Pros: Speakers and box are nice.
Cons: The amp gets hot.
Great subs. hit 129 db with them in my 2010 ford focus. The amp did burn up though. I have a 500 watt alpine v power on them now and they shake the windows in my house from the yard. Great subs. decent amp. Very very loud system for people on a budget.
Pros: loud and clear for the price.
Cons: Bad amp
I drive an 01 Cadillac DTS and 2 different stereo installation shops told me I'd have to get a different car to get a good sounding system. I bought these and people have told me they can hear me coming over a block away. Great addition to my factory Bose system.
Pros: Clean crisp sound. Clear bass.
Cons: Only complaint I have is amp overheats too often.
Great setup for a really good price. Put em in my blazer and i get pretty boomy bass in a large area
Pros: price, quality, easy
the subs are great, but the amp is weak, it constantly overheats. i can go from work to home without them getting really hot. the subs felt a bit hot as well but that was aftwr a long day of just turnig em up so no biggie overall great combo . would reccomend another amp though
Pros: subs are amazing and hit hard
Cons: amp is to weak
It is the perfect amount of bass for my vehicle. I love the look and sound of my subs. Easy hook up and a Perfectly sealed box.
Pros: Plenty of bump :D
Cons: Not a darn thing. ;)
I gave it four stars because the subs are great and they hit hard but the amp's gain has to been turned up high for them to hit but the amp over heats.
Pros: Great subs
Cons: Weak amp, over heats
These sube are the best i've seen at my school.I've been in two cometitions in school parking lot and got 2nd both times ( would've gotn first but people ith the MTX thuder beat me). Best thing you can get your son for his birthday or make him save it up and buy it like i did.
Pros: Price is amazing and vibrates the car
Cons: When you install the amp and it has 3 blinking lights then make sure you chek all the wires and ac adapters... And be sure to turn off your car for one minute in between fixing somthing or it want change anything
I love it! They hit so hard and they were cheep!
Hooks up pretty easily, sounds good matched with my old Jensen DVD unit. Really adds a new dynamic for the low hit bass that had been missing from the sound profile. Picture above shows it having two terminals on the rear which I was hoping I could use with a Sony xplod 2/4 channel amp however it only has one spring clip terminal when it comes out of the box. No big deal, why I went for the amp package as well but was somewhat disappointed that the picture didn't match up. One of the screws was missing from the amp, small one that holds the remote wire, nothing a trip to the hardware store didn't fix however.
Pros: Sounds good, decent price, straightforward hookup
Cons: No documentation at all in the box and the amp doesn't show up on the MTX web page. Still haven't found a comprehensive manual online. Picture shows two terminals on the rear of the box but it only has one.Crutchfield response on 8/1/2013 Thanks for your review. We have removed the picture with two terminals, and we will be updating with a corrected picture of this item.
It shipped from the manufacturer, and I got it in 4 days. Just got this hooked up by a performance shop here in town. This thing is paired very well, and it really thumps! It comes with a remote level adjustment, which is a good thing. For different types of music, you can tune the amount of bass that is appropriate. But when you want it, these subs and amp will get busy! Very satisfied, and a great price.
Pros: Quick delivery, very loud, thumping bass.
Cons: Only thing I didn't like was that it didn't come with an owners manual. Should have had instructions on proper installation, tuning, remote control setup.
Overall it hits hard but the amp constanlty over heats and turns off
Pros: Hits hard
Cons: Shuts off every 20 mins
I only gave this combo 3 stars because the amp is sooooooo WEAK. It sends out good bass but has to have the GAIN turned way to far down in order to prevent it from over heating and shutting off. Once its turned down to the point it doesnt over heat, you cant even hear the subs. I have to ride with my rear seats open so that I can let air from my windows being down keep the amp cool. Sometimes that doesnt work because its so hot outside. I am either going to build a fan unit for the amp or im going to purchase a new amp. The Subs are extremely nice. They have some serious bang to em. I would not recommend this COMBO to anyone but would definitely recommend the subs,
Pros: Awesome SUBS!!
Cons: Amp overheats and requires a really low gain setting to prevent over heating.
Really, really great package. Very attractive black carpet subwoofer enclosure, expertly crafted and solid 12 inch subs, amp gives off great power resulting in thunderous bass response. I have to actually turn the bass down more than half-way!! Very powerful! A nice, unexpected surprise was the cute little external bass control (EBC) potentiometer- which is now mounted nicely under my pull-out ashtray!! Overall, a super product that exceeded my expectations by miles!! I highly recommend.
Pros: High-quality, attractive appearance, well-built, very powerful, great value
i am impressed for the price these kick ass, just need larger amp to really see full potentiall
Pros: shakes the car, good first buy,
Cons: get a larger amp...sell the one it comes with, my opinion, however the one it comes with dose work quite well
You really cannot beat this package for the price. I installed them in my Explorer and they sound great. Amp and box are made for each other. Purchase a wiring kit and hook it all up. The lows are amazing and it only took a week for it to come in the mail.
Pros: Deep low bass. Easy to install. Fast shipping.
Cons: I feel like another 100 watts would do this package justice.
Hey guys, if you're looking to buy this package deal. DO IT! First subs ever and let me tell you, the bass these things produce is amazing! If these are your first subs get them great in every way. Even if they aren't your first these will rock your world and car. Even with this little amp they sound amazing. I can't wait to upgrade the amp and see what these do at full power!
Pros: Great sound! Great price! Awesome tech help!
Cons: Amp gets a little hot but nothing you can't fix with the windows open. Ships from manufacturer so expect 5-7 days shipping. Was a little mad when I found out about that.
Good package bought it foe my step daughter good low range price sey
Cons: shipped from supplier no notification from crutch field on this had to call find out where they were? and no set up information came with accessories but no info on set up etc could not find the same exact amplifier manual on line
Overview: This package includes a mono subwoofer amplifier and a hatchback style enclosure loaded with two 12" woofers.
Enclosure: The sealed enclosure is built from 5/8" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and is covered in aviation grade carpet. Two 12" 4Ω subwoofers are installed, internally wired in parallel, to present a 2Ω load.
Amplifier: The mono amplifier output is 250 watts RMS at 2Ω. It has a pair of RCA inputs, as well as a speaker-level input harness. There is also a pair of RCA outputs, so you can connect another amplifier without having to run a second pair of RCA cables back to your headunit. The low-pass crossover is adjustable from 40-400 Hz. The power, ground, and speaker output wire is attached to set-screw terminals. (8-gauge power wire is recommended.)
Note: For this system the amplifier's crossover should be set to low-pass.
