BUILT-IN
FLEXIBILITY
PERFORMANCE
BORN UNDER A
GOOD SIGN.
The new 4-channel Road Thunder
amplifiers are designed to truly
reflect the installations that are
most common for a 4-channel
amp:
When you pick an amplifier, you
want a guarantee that it’ll deliver.
The amplifier must provide ultraclean sound with unmatched
durability. A promise that you can
turn it up and it won’t turn off.
That’s what you get with the MTX
Road Thunder amplifiers. We test
each amplifier extensively before
you ever see it to make sure it
meets or exceeds its rated
specifications. Then, and only then,
do
we
sign
the
Certified
Performance Certificate. It’s our
word that this amplifier will
perform to specs—it’s like being
born with a destiny for greatness.
Scenario # 1 Running your front
speakers off the two front
channels, and bridging the rear
channels to drive a subwoofer.
Scenario # 2 Running your front
speakers off the front channels,
and your rear speakers off the
rear channels.
Here’s what we’ve done.
The crossover is fixed at 18
dB/octave at 85 Hz.
Rear Channels – The crossover on
the rear channels is switchable
from full-range, high-pass, or
low-pass.
SPECIAL FEATURES
The Road Thunder amplifiers each have a built-in crossover that makes
system design much easier and more efficient. It’s 18 dB/octave at 85 Hz,
switchable from low pass/high pass or full-range.
High-level inputs and Auto Turn-on. To better integrate with
OEM head units, these new Road Thunder amps feature
what we call “Smart-Engage”. It’s a patent pending auto
power-up circuit that automatically turns the amp on
when it senses the source voltage from the high level
inputs from the factory radio (this means you don’t have
to remove the factory head unit during installation -this means it’s easy to install this amp).
MADE IN THE USA
The bass boost is centered at 40
Hz.
We proudly tell the world that these amplifiers are Made
in the USA. In our factory in Phoenix, Arizona. It’s a sign
that we are highly involved with nearly every step in the
manufacturing process. That means that we control the
quality, so that our customers are assured of a reliable,
high-performance product.
Front Channels – The crossover on
the front channels is full-range or
high pass
And, the 4-channel Road Thunder
amplifiers feature a new parallel
input switch that lets you run 2
RCAs for 4-channels (like getting
a built-in Y connector).
And, the wire harness for the high level inputs is
color-coded, so it’s really easy to install this amp.
The Road Thunder amplifiers have a buffered,
isolated full-range output, allowing you to daisy
chain amps to other subwoofers or to high
frequency amps.You can’t accuse us of not
giving you flexibility, now, can you?
EASE OF INSTALLATION
See the color coding on this wire harness—we’ve pre-colored this to tell
you which is positive/negative and left/right—this means that you just
plug in and go.

INTRODUCTION
SPECIAL FEATURES
GUTSY SIMPLICITY
Thunder amplifiers are known for superior
performance, low to non-existent noise, and
really easy installation. Their performance is
legendary.
Remember your first car? It filled you with the thrill
of driving. The Thunder 2-channel amplifiers will
spark that same thrill.
The body. Shiny chrome logo with bright red LED.
The rugged black heatsink that was inspired by the
machined cylinder head of a classic, high
performance automobile.
Under the Hood: The Thunder amplifiers are made for
performance. Packed with features that make the
music sound crystal clear. With enough muscle to
satisfy your bass addiction.
The crossover is 12 dB/octave high pass, 24
dB/octave low pass, variable from 40 to 200
Hz. In low pass mode, the outputs are mono,
at 24 dB/octave. It’s the job of the crossover to
make your bass sound like it comes from the
front of the car (we call it “bass up front”).
Remember, you install subwoofers in the
trunk because that’s where the space is, not
because bass sounds better coming from
behind your ears.
THUNDER CERTIFICATE

The RCA outputs are selectable, from fullrange to high-pass or low-pass. This allows
you to feed additional amplifiers.
Every

Smart-Engage, Auto Turn-On. This patentpending circuit automatically turns the amp
on when it senses the BTL dc voltage from
your factory radio. Makes installation a snap.
Individual Gain Controls to center up the

A word about power — when you pick an amplifier, it’s important to
know how it stacks up. MTX has chosen the most conservative (and we
believe, the most honest) way to rate our amps. We test it at RMS power
at 12.5 volts, and show you the spec for dynamic power at 14.4 volts
(the IHF-202 Standard). That way, you can see how the amp is rated
under the RMS “standard” and also how it performs under more
normal operation. Beware of specs that don’t tell what the
measurement standard is.
8 Volt RMS Input—This large signal
capability allows for better integration with
high voltage output source units, increasing
dynamic range, and improving Signal-toNoise ratio in the audio system.

4-CHANNEL
AMPLIFIERS
The advantage of Class D
amplification is that it is highly
efficient (that means, the
amplifier effectively uses the
power to drive speakers, rather
than dissipating it as heat), and
Class D amps have a very
small
footprint.
Almost
anyone can make a big
amplifier, but it takes smarts and
careful engineering to make a
small, efficient amplifier. And
almost anyone can buy a big
amplifier, as long as they don’t
mind sacrificing the whole trunk
and the entire contents of their
wallet). But go back to what we
said on the first page of this brochure -- we think our customers are pretty
smart. Smart enough to know that Class D is the technology of the future
for subwoofer amps.

“Summed
output” jacks
provide a line level summed
output of the right front/right
rear and left front/left rear input
signals. This output is typically
used to drive an external
subwoofer amplifier.
The parallel input switch
allows a 2-channel signal to drive all four channels (no
need for a “Y” connector).
5-CHANNEL AMPLIFIER
You’ll choose a five-channel amplifier when you want
high-end car audio, but you don’t really want to cram
your trunk full of amps. The Thunder405. Four channels
are for your mids and highs, the Fifth channel is a
dedicated, class D subwoofer channel.
Front Channels feature a Fully Adjustable
Crossover from 40-200 Hz, with 12 dB/octave high
pass and 24 dB/octave low pass.
The subwoofer channel features a low pass crossover
at 24 dB/octave, also adjustable from 40-200 Hz.

“MTX STEPS UP
TO THE PLATE
AND KNOCKS
ONE OUT
OF THE PARK.”
Class D amps run cooler because they take the low frequencies (think
thunderous bass) and send power to those frequencies only when
required. In most amplifiers, the power is flowing constantly, even during
a musical passage where there’s no bass. This wastes power and causes
the amp to overheat much more quickly (that’s why you see giant heatsinks
and noisy fans).
The crossover in the Class D amplifiers is low-pass, at 24dB/octave,
adjustable from 40 - 500 Hz. The Thunder250D and Thunder500D feature
high level inputs and Smart-Engage auto-turn-on. All Thunder Class D
models feature the EBC External Bass Control.
THE REVIEWERS SPEAK-UP
In reviewing the first Thunder Class D amplifier, the reviewers at
Car Sound magazine had only good things to say... “MTX steps up
to the plate with this Class D subwoofer amp and knocks one out
of the park...True beauty is relative to efficiency and output
power into 2 ohms. What a philosophy!... small enough to offer
a variety of installation options... keep up the good work, guys!”

ENGINEERED FOR DESIGN
EFFICIENCY—RTX CROSSOVERS
FOR ANY BASIC SYSTEM.
Clever design techniques for seamless integration with high-end and OEM systems makes the LSX Series
what it is—the most powerful and flexible crossover on the market today. For a better, more efficient audio
system, you need to direct the bass, mid-range, and high frequencies to the correct speakers. LSX gives
you more system design options.
Crossovers can be the vital component to making sure your amplifier and
speakers “talk to each other”. You want to make sure that you direct the
right signal to the right speaker so you don’t lose any sound quality in
the bass, treble, or mid-range frequencies.

THE FRONT STAGE
The front stage in car audio means that if you shut your
eyes, you can visualize the location of the performers
and instruments on the “stage” during a live
performance. And it’s the front speakers that re-create
an accurate front stage experience. The Thunder6000
Convertibles are one of the most flexible ways that
you’ll find to add superior musicality and
accurate staging to your audio system.
The midbass speakers have been highly engineered for
sound quality. The cone material is an injection-molded
polypropylene with pure titanium deposited on the
surface. Besides having a stellar appearance, this type
of cone construction contributes to the speaker’s
durability. The machined midbass front and back plates
continue the classic look.
The Thunder 6000 convertibles come
with a separate crossover network
that mimics the cosmetics of the
Thunder amplifiers, right down to
the little oval logo. The crossover
slope is 12dB/octave, for smooth
transitions between the mid and
high frequencies.
We call these convertibles, but they
ain’t no ragtops. They ship to you as a
coaxial, with the the tweeter mounted
inside the midbass cone. However,
you can easily remove the tweeter
and convert the speakers to separate
component systems.
YOUR CHOICE OF
FACTORY
REPLACEMENT
SPEAKERS
SHOULD DEPEND
ON THREE
THINGS.
The tweeter on the convertibles is a
sonically pure, 19 mm PEF dome,
with a ferrofluid cooled neodymium
magnet. The tweeter swivels in any
configuration, and when it converts to
a separate tweeter, you can mount it
using the flush or surface mount
accessories.
How do they sound?
What are they made of?
How long is the warranty?
The materials used in MTX coaxials
are tough, rugged, and built to last.
Injection molded polypropylene
cones produce better bass. The PolyNeo II™ balanced dome tweeters
have polycarbonate domes for
extended high frequency response,
neodymium magnets for improved
efficiency, and ferrofluid cooling for
longer life. Other unique features,
like insulated high frequency leads,
polyimide impregnated fiberglass
voice coil formers, and an industry
leading 2-year warranty, make MTX
coaxials the best choice for sound
improvement. Plus, they’re designed
and engineered right here in the USA
so your music will be
full, clear, and more accurate.

COMPONENT SYSTEMS
COMPONENT SYSTEMS
BUILT WITH THE MUSIC IN MIND
The Thunder8000 Component systems might just possibly be some of the finest work that
our MTX acoustic engineers have ever done. These new component systems are for the
person who truly appreciates the acoustic information that makes up a song. And
they’re for the person who knows their music -- all the nuances, and where
the performers were located in the sound stage. And once you’re that close
to the music, you expect the imaging and staging characteristics of your
front speakers to be pretty exceptional. The new Thunder8000
component systems will not disappoint. They are true to the music.
INSTANT RECOGNITION
The Thunder8000 Component Systems sport the
distinctive silver, red, and black MTX logo
(so there’s no question about your high
level of musical taste).
To achieve the kind of musical accuracy that you expect from the finest
components, we’ve designed the midbass with elegant, high-end die
cast frames. These tooled parts make for a classic cosmetic statement,
and they also result in a more durable frame. The cone material is
coated with titanium for a stylish, bullet-proof appearance.
The machined front plates and back plates continue the
MTX dedication to quality engineering and attention to
detail.
TITANIUM
DEPOSITION

t h e
tweeter, we’ve incorporated a 1” silk dome for accurate high
frequency reproduction, and cooled it with ferrofluid. Mounting
options are many, with a swivel surface and flush mount.
A two position tweeter attenuation switch (+/- 3dB) gives you command of your high-end
frequency reproduction.
Titanium is one of the
strongest
and
lightest
metals known. The Titanium
deposition
on
the
polypropylene
cones
increases resistance to UV
rays which means you get a
speaker that lasts longer.
The crossover is a 12 dB/octave, low-pass, 18db/octave high-pass. The crossover housing is
durable, injection-molded plastic.

Teamed with the flat progressive spider, this
makes for a very linear, or straight, motion of
the speaker. (Linearity is also engineeringese for low distortion.) Note: This cool idea
combo is what makes your tunes musical—
even while your retinas are detaching from
extreme SPL.
We use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to
design our loudspeakers. It’s just one of the
many computer software tools we use to
ensure a superior product. This picture
shows the suspension on the speaker during
its most extreme outward travel. We use this
information to make sure that mechanical
stress is spread out evenly across the
suspension, so our subwoofers live long and
prosper.

SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE — WHEN
SPACE IS REALLY TIGHT.
MTX introduces a clever mix of leading edge technology including
MTX’s Asymmetrical Linear Drive System). These new subwoofers
were designed to play DEEP, LOW, BASS in a variety of
enclosures: sealed, vented or bandpass. The Thunder6000
subwoofers come in 4 or 8 ohm impedances, with the 10”
size also available in 12 ohm (three 10” speakers fit really
well in the space between the tire wells).
ACOUSTICALLY STABLE
FOR ACCURATE SONIC
REPRODUCTION
Black, NBR surround and gasket combination makes a
tight seal when rear mounted, and a cosmetic
nicety when front mounted. NBR rubber has a
high resistance to ozone and UV aging so your
subwoofers will live a very long life.
EXTREME POWER

Oversized magnet structure, a 2” four-layer
voice coil and Apical voice coil formers keep
these subwoofers ready and eager to play.
MACHINED STEEL PARTS
The new injection-molded, silver-machined look cone with 8
stiffening ribs increase cone stiffness for improved mechanical
power handling (and they look pretty cool, too). The machine-turned
front and back plate with a clear zinc coating makes a high-end
quality statement, with the zinc playing the role of corrosion fighter.
Bright nickel connectors complete the connection in the most
attractive way. The folded window basket is stronger, more durable,

SUBWOOFERS
SUBWOOFERS
BEYOND THE LIMITS OF
PERFORMANCE
PICTURE OF
STRENGTH
Quite simply, serious competitors will choose Thunder8000
because when it comes to winning, there’s no limit to how
low MTX will go—and we mean that in the best sense.
Take a good look at this speaker. The
gasket and surround are made
from black NBR rubber (that’s
Nitrile Butadiene Rubber). This
is a synthetic rubber that’s
extremely resistant to ozone
and the effects of UV rays.
Translation?
Extremely
durable, with a sleek, cool
look. The unique radius on
the pole piece also
minimizes
turbulence
that occurs during large
excursions, so when you
turn the music WAY up,
you won’t hear that
“heavy
breathing”
sound (unless it’s your
own).
WOOF.
Your first glimpse of these Thunder8000 subwoofers will give
you a clue about their performance. “Aggressive” is one
word for it. The enormous 12-leg die cast aluminum basket
was made to handle the demands of enormous bass. The
machined front and back plates scream quality. The 12
stiffening ribs on the injection molded cone increase cone
durability and performance. Bark AND bite that lasts.
HOT ISN’T ALWAYS COOL.
Asymmetrical Linear Drive technology, used
throughout the Thunder series, promises high
output with low distortion. And these subs
are packed with features to help dissipate
heat (repeat: “Overheated speakers are
NOT our friends”). They have a rugged
die cast frame, an enormous magnet
structure (102 ounces), and a 2.5”
high-temperature, 4-layer voice coil
(8-layer on the 15”). If you didn’t
know, more copper means better
thermal power handling. Spider
Plateau Venting refers to the small
vents around the frame that allow
the super-heated air under the
spider to be exchanged with cooler
ambient air. All these features add
to the cool factor—literally.
Why put all this effort and
technology
into
the
Thunder8000 subwoofers?
One, because we can. Two,
because it’s so cool. And
three, because durability is
critical for performance at high
SPL levels. When the SPL meter
is peggin’ 150, you can’t have
your speakers ripping apart. (That
would NOT be a good thing.) So give
Thunder8000 your best shot, but be
prepared—your head will likely
explode long before these speakers
ever will.
ENGINEERS GEEKOUT AGAIN
Our engineers just might have out-done
themselves on this one. One of the biggest
challenges in spider design (the spider is the
suspension of the speaker) is to maximize the linear
region of the speaker’s movement. We performed
extensive Finite Element Analysis (high-tech testing) on
the spider and found that the best design was a “five roll”
spider design. We call it Computer Optimized Progressive
Roll spider (COPR for short).

MECP: INSTALL STANDARDS

At MTX, we believe in the value of an installation performed by a
certified professional. It can mean the difference between a greatsounding, good-looking install or one that has you crying over the
holes that an installer wanna-be has hacked in your door panels. Look
for the Mobile Electronics Certified Professional certification. It means
that your installer has passed a rigorous round of tests. It means that

The T610 and T612 single-sub wedge
enclosures are real performers. They
feature a 70 degree trapezoidal shape
that makes the most efficient use of
available space in the vehicle. A 4 ohm

Every car or truck has wasted s p a c e . You know, those places behind
or beneath the seats, where loose change hides and oil change receipts
gather. Those spaces are cryin’ for bass. MTX responds with
ThunderForm vehicle-specific subwoofer enclosures.
1.
IMAGINE—A MOTHER-LOAD OF BASS
IN A SMALL SPACE.
MTX engineers measured top-selling vehicles and evaluated their sonic
signatures. Using unique materials and creative manufacturing
processes we developed enclosures that would deliver high quality sonic
performance, yet fit in the wasted space where you can’t fit anything
else. ThunderForm vehicle-specific mobile enclosures are designed to fill
your car’s deepest, darkest corners and deliver a mother-load of bass.
STYLE,
SUBSTANCE
ALL—PERFORMANCE.
AND
FORD RANGER 1998-2000
ABOVE
ThunderForm enclosures are engineered in loaded or amplified models
to deliver high SPL with very low distortion (you can get them unloaded
also, if you want to “make your own bass”). They’re available in a variety
of colors to match the interior of your particular vehicle and you won’t
have to compromise its cosmetic integrity. This is especially nice for
those who lease their vehicles and want to enjoy added bass without the
added hassle of messy installations.The material in the ThunderForm
enclosures is a high density polyethylene resin, which is resilient
enough to transform into various shapes, yet rigid enough to avoid
flexing. It also has enough density to dampen any resonance (No
cabinet “ping” allowed).
All ThunderForm mobile enclosures are manufactured through
a process we call rotational molding. It’s technology that
allows you, our customer, to select a textured subwoofer
enclosure that sounds great, fits perfectly, and is a perfect
color match to your OEM color scheme. Stay very far
away from anyone who tells you that all grays are alike —
they’re not. And, it’s our technological approach that
makes these enclosures, that sound like a million, not cost
a million.

NEW AMPLIFIED MODELS: A
TOTALLY NEW CONCEPT IN
MATERIALS, DESIGN AND
MANUFACTURING
On the Amplified ThunderForm models, we’ve added an on-board, 100watt, Class-D amplifier. The amp is highly efficient, and has been
designed specifically for the subwoofer in the enclosure. This means that
you get deep, low bass, without having to wire in a separate amplifier.
And the MTX Smart-Engage Circuitry (patent pending) eliminates the
need to remove your factory head-unit during most installations (now, if
you don’t know how much time that feature alone will save you, just go
sit in your car, and imagine having to tear out the whole dash... and really
hope you don’t snap any of the clips in there).

MOBILE ENCLOSURES:
FOLLOW YOUR OWN ROAD
At MTX we approach mobile enclosures with a passion
matched only by the feeling you get when you follow your

new vehicle—perfectly.
And our loudspeakers are
specifically engineered for the enclosure you buy. They
feature finely crafted horn-loaded quartz type
semiconductor tweeters in the full-range, and solid, highperformance subwoofers for maximum thunder. Each
enclosure is covered with aviation grade carpeting to
protect your vehicle’s interior. The heavy-duty steel grilles
protect the subwoofers and are as tough as nails. They
have to be because when you are on the road, you don’t
want to worry about whether your enclosure can take what
you give it.
The

are built to handle
the demands of the

Bandpass loudspeaker systems are a logical choice
when you’re interested in efficiency (requiring less
amplifier power to create more sound). And,
because the MTX acoustic engineers have

frequency, the acoustic response is highly accurate.
And the MTX Road Thunder Bandpass boxes have a
custom-built box look—no average, square plexiglas

THUNDERFORCE
OUTPERFORMING THE COMPETITION
TAKING ON THE WORLD
When you decide to take on the world of
autosound competition, you’d better be ready to
change your life. The autosound champion is a
special breed—working into the night, tweaking
and changing. It’s knowing that you’re going up
against the best in the world, and you’d better
be prepared.
You’ll spend hours tearing your system apart,
listening to it play, putting it back together, and
then starting all over again. You’ll even take to
hanging around the car audio shop, learning
how to tweak a car to wring out an extra tenth of
a point in a competition. Dozens of sleepless
nights. Remembering your pizza delivery man’s
birthday, but forgetting your girlfriend’s name.
1999 IASCA WORLD FINALS
It’s a sickness without a cure.
At the 1999 IASCA FINALS the ThunderForce Team members took home
18% of the available trophies. That capped a winning season—150 total
trophies for the year.
Maybe you’ll win a trophy, maybe not. Maybe
you’ll be the next world champion, maybe not.
But once it gets in your blood, you’ll love every
minute of it.
• 12 IASCA TROPHIES
• 3 WORLD CHAMPIONS
• 8 STATE CHAMPIONS
• 16 POINTS CHAMPIONS
• 1 COMPETITIVE SPIRIT AWARD
This level of achievement doesn’t come easy—it takes guts and
commitment. Congratulations to all who competed.

Jason Planck is the Director of MTX ThunderForce. He is the proverbial
road warrior, spending almost every weekend at IASCA and dB Drag
Racing events, supporting our ThunderForce team members. And when
he’s not at these events, he’s building the next show car for MTX. And, oh
yeah, he has a car of his own that’s an IASCA champion. He has one of
those special characteristics—he can get by with no sleep for weeks at a
time. What a guy!
BREAKFAST OF
CHAMPIONS
It’s amazing how resilient the human body is. No
sleep, Cold pizza for breakfast. All for the thrill of
the competition.
