The sitched surround helps ensure a long life-span even under extreme circumstances. Handle power like you never thought before with the MTX Audio Thunder 8500!
Internal Product ID:
My friend has this sub in his 97 eclipse. It is sealed and has decent sq and it get fairly loud for sealed. Personally I would not run this sub bcuz I like more sq than spl but he likes the subs just fine. One more thing, the build quality of this sub seemed to be good im not knocking the product its jst not for me.
i have owned 2 of these and they bump my trunk rattled from so much base i had them hooked up to 2 1000 watt mtx amps they are sweet! i have now switched to the mtx thunder 6500 and have the same amps
I had one of these in an MTX spec enclosure and it was great. I had it hooked up to an Alpine PDX 1.600 mono and it hit very hard. If you do buy this sub, make a box with a double thick baffle and tune the port lower than what MTX specifies. You will enjoy the sub way more. The sub just has that sound of a nice subwoofer. It doesn't sound cheap like a lot of other subs are. I would compare this to a Kicker L7. This is probably one of the heaviest subs I have seen too. Its like 40 pounds and it has a flat wound voice coil. This sub never got hot or smelly on the 600 rms and man can it move far. The excursion is ridiculous. Very nice sub. The price could be a little lower though.
Amazingly loud sub
This sub is way underpowered... I got this sub put in my 96' civic last year and it was actually rated at 600 rms.. this sub gets so loud and its made by MTX the best in the business. Get this sub.. you'll be glad you did
