Top 20 MTX (SLH-T7512X2-A) Car Speaker Questions & Answers


Hi there,

Actually, you could be in luck.

If you are getting 'absolutely nothing', it could be something simple. Open it up (carefully) and make sure the wires are secure on both the speaker and the inner connection leads.

I've come across several this has happened to that were brand new.

Good luck
Mike

You cant bridge it to the MONO AMP . You can only bridge subs & speakers to 2 CH & 4 CH AMPS that are bridgeable. Because if it appears that there is 2 channels on a Mono amp its so its convenient for you to hook up 2 4ohm subs to it easily But both channels are actually connect internally together in parallel inside the amp unlike a 2 channel they are separate.

So just connect your mtx 9500 to a plus and a minus and doesnt matter which since all the + terminals of are connected together and - are connected together already.

Whats important is on the side of the sub/box it reads 2 ohms. The lower the ohms the more power the Mono amp will put out. Mono amps are designed to handle 2ohm loads.

If it reads 4ohms The MONO amp is the wrong amp to use cause the power will be weaker. So if you have a 1000 Watt Mono amp at 4ohms the sub will only get 500 WATTS Max while a 2 ohm will get the full 1000 Watts.

If it reads 4 ohms connect it to a 2CHANNEL AMP and BRIDGE IT (connect + of the sub to 1st channels positive of the amp then connect - of the sub to 2nd channels negative of the amp) . The power will be doubled when you bridge it on a 2 channel amp. NOW if it was a 2 ohm sub and you bridged it to the 2 channel amp it will fry the subs and ruin the amp. 2 CHANNELS CANT TAKE A 2OHM LOAD BRIDGED OK.

nice way to ask something :) you must open the subwoofer box and check the connections. the problem is bad contact. with cold all metals shrinks and with warm they expand and make contact.

Don´t forget to rate.
Thanks

I was having a similar issue. I checked every wire from the battery to stereo to amp, checked the ground, pulled the stereo to double check the wiring was all correct. Everything seemed good so I thought it had to be my battery not putting out enough power. Tested it and it was good. What it turned out to be was the connection from the power cord to the battery. It had a tiny bit of built up corrosion that was making the amp go into protect mode. Cleaned it up and hooked it back up and has been golden since.
The link attached is pretty straight up on what you need to check for different circumstances. I'm guessing it's a low voltage issue. Good luck

Since this is a vintage item, the cost is whatever the market will bear, wherever you're trying to sell it. I would suggest checking current prices on sites such as eBay, where one is currently being offered to sell at $200, while another is being offered for $90. The perceived value is what determines the selling price at this point, because the MSRP is long irrelevant by now, being that it's a discontinued item.

The mtx thunder is a 4 channel amp. 4 channels can't be bridged to 1 speaker. You can only use one side of that amp to bridge your speaker. Unfortunately your now only using half your amp.

You have a short somewhere in the speaker wires.

Take both positive leads to the positive of the amp. Both negatives from the sub to the negative of the amp. Utilize the bridged output connections. This would present a 3 ohm load which would be around 100 watts rms (rough estimate)

250wrms is the highest they can take each. So look for an amp that does 500 wrms x1@ 2 ohms or one that does 250wrms X2 @ 4ohms.

Get a speakers to line input adapter and that will do the trick.

the light stays on because the amp is still storing power. it only turns off when the capacitors on the inside have drained off all the extra power

If you bridge the amp and get 1000 watts RMS and that is split going to two speakers then you will get 500 watts RMS at each speaker. If you have your amplifier on maximum gain it may blow your speakers, not because they are overpowered but because you might run into "clipping" issues running the amp at maximum capacity. Just to be safe I would dial the amp's gain down to 3/4 of the way to full gain. That should give you ample power and keep your amp from clipping and running hot.
