MTX Audio is launching its first line of Pro car audio speakers and introducing new shallow mount subwoofers here at KnowledgeFest.
New Pro models total six midbass and bullet tweeters under the RoadThunder Extreme (RTX) series. Pro style speakers tend to focus on midbass and have higher sensitivity than typical car audio speakers.
National sales manager Jamie Trentacoste said the Pro line permits MTX to remain a one-stop-shop for all car speaker styles. ”Having this product category helps our dealers provide the solutions that their customers need while at the same time helping them reach their volume and freight goals.”
The new Pro 8 ohm RoadThunder Extreme drivers ship in December and include the :
RTX658 6.5″ Midbass Driver 100W RMS
RTX88 8″ Midbass Driver 150W RMS
RTX108 10″ Midbass Driver 250W RMS
RTX128 12″ Midbass Driver 300W RMS
RTX2BT 2″ Bullet Tweeter 100W RMS
RTX4BT 4″ Bullet Tweeter 250W RMS
New shallow mount subwoofers fall under the Flat Piston (FPR) series sporting an updated design that handles more “air volume” and better manages heat.
The subwoofers have a patent pending design that mounts the spider directly to the front plate rather than the basket. They support more excursion (to move more air). The new cone design also adds more surface diameter.
The shallow subs, designed for tight enclosures, come in 10 and 12-inch sizes at 300 and 400 watt RMS power, respectively. Both are available in single 2 and 4 ohm versions at $229.95 and $249.95. Shipping is planned for mid-September.
Also new is an RTL12K2D 12-inch loaded subwoofer enclosure at $329.95 minimum advertised price.
