WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY!
Like what Thomas said this is also the best amp I have purchased in a long time. I went from a cea compliant 1200 watts rms @ 1ohm amp to this small little powerful beast and i must say this thing 1000 watts at 1 ohm beats my old 1200 watt rms amp by far and the bass quality running it at 1 ohm is truly amazing!! and it gets warm but not hot and that's normal. this amp made me want to get into system building for a hobby all over again thank you mtx!!
I have been a dedicated Rockford Fosgate amp user since 1992. I recently purchased an MTX 500 watt mono block and in the words of Rapunzel, "I am never going back." MTX beats RF on price, specs, customer service and warranty. I wish I had found out about MTX years ago.
Wow! This amp has plenty of sharp clean pop on the bass end and clean crisp highs. This brand was recommended by a installation tech at a store that did not sell MTX. This is after a Soundstream Rubicon amp last three months and needed to be sent back twice for repairs. There is no comparison in the sound quality with the MTX high years ahead! ...Did I say 'Wow"?!
The control panel on the THUNDER500.1 is easy to access and make adjustments. The unit includes a variable low pass filter and a selectable bass boost, 0, +6, or +12dB. The unit also features a subsonic filter that can be used in conjunction with a vented enclosure for optimal sound quality.
The THUNDER500.1 uses set screw type connections for both its power and speaker terminals. The power and ground inputs will support up to a 4 AWG wire and the speaker inputs can support up to a 12 AWG wire. Set screw type connectors provide the most secure connection minimizing power loss and delivering all the power to the amplifier and to the speakers.
