Question about MTX Thunder 421D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Blown Voltage regulators

I personally do not own this MTX Thunder 421D, however my friend had said it had started to smoke and stopped working, I opened it to find that two voltage regulators were blown. Would there be any way to get the specifications on these components or any replacements? The numbers I could pull off (some of it was charred or melted) were N414A (possibly a J after the A) and 75339P.

That first number most likely is 2N414A. Goto NTE cross refference web site and put this number in, it will show you a cross for it with a picture of the transistor to match it to the one you have. Hope this helps good luck.

My mtx thunder 421d I just got has the red light staying on all the time, I have hooked up a rca converter and the amp wont play my sub, is that light supposed to be red all the time.


The LED should be red. If you are not getting power to the sub, make sure the speakers are connected properly to the amp. Also make sure that the gain control is turned up. If it is all the way down, you will not hear anything from the sub(s). If none of that works, it is possible that you have a blown sub. If you smell a burnt smell near the speaker magnet, there is damage to the voice coil in the sub.

I have a mtx thunder 421d. I've had it about 5 years,about a week ago it started going out from time to time. I checked my hot wire and fuses,they are ok.Now the amp stop working, and dont light up. Will...


If you have proof of purchase(invoice or receipt) showing the purchase date and you are still within the warranty period then yes it would be repaired by MTX under the warranty guidlines, and by the way MTX is great at customer service and they are great to work with(very fair)!!!!
Keep in mind that the seal on the bottom of the amp cannot be broken or that will void warranty coverage.
Give them a call, you will be glad you did!

I have a mtx 421d. can I over heat if I connect only one channel.


Hello jaimemm_77,

The MTX 421d is a mono amp. It only has one output channel.

If you are asking about hooking up only one channel to the input, then no, the amp will not overheat. But the output will be significantly reduced. It would be best to use a "Y" adapter with a single female and two male connectors to split the channel into both inputs.

Hope this helps.

MTX Thunder problem


Make sure that your connection at the battery is still good-sometimes the wire corrodes up front when your system is installed for a long time-so check that out and of course the fuse that you installed a foot away from the battery so that you dont burn your vehicle down if a short occurs somewhere down the line

Help! Amp not turning on


Im sorry to have to inform you my friend, if you saw smoke, you burned one or more of the resistors or output devices inside the amp. Without a service manual, it will be a hard call on what exactly cooked. In alot of cases please forgive me for saying so, but the ampis not worth taking into a repair shop to be repaired, because of the high cost these days of labor. Its too bad there are no user replacable parts inside of these amps. Good Luck. Ps Please do not forget to rate this thread?
