    Went a little deep (that's what she said) on my first one, but eventually got the hang of it

    Threw the MTX in to make sure it worked ok. Brought my mids to life.





    ---------- Post added at 09:30 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:29 AM ----------

    So, just realized all this time I could of had group 31 batts behind any of my boxes. Never thought they'd fit. ****...




    That's both batts in there behind the box, where my sub amp usually goes. Going to make an amp rack on the passenger side of the box where that piece of wood is in the top pic.

    Yes sir. Bought one of the 4 out of Andrew's Tahoe. Came with a 1 year warranty. Great deal!!

    And thank you. I have always wanted a solid 4 channel for my mids and I finally have one. Love running old school amps for my mids/highs. Had 3 1984 Alphasonik 2 channels, with a matching 2 way crossover, running active before this.

    Locked up my passenger side Lanzar Opti today. Got a little ballsy with the MTX. Sounded great till it died. Cut it open and the coil was black as night. I think the small Denon 4 channel I had bridged on them before the MTX must have been clipping. I just can't see the coil getting that black in the two days I've had the MTX on them.



    Ordered another one for now. Will most likely need to replace the driver's side soon as well.
