I wonder if Camaro Scotty's parts guy could find it.

200 for two 10's is not much at all... 200 for a single is probably minimum. my last sytem was 250 watts per channel. 2 10's in a band pass.

Well I picked up the GM system today. A local dealer sold it for 866.00 out the door, and I am going to have them install it as well. I had looked at several systems and decided for a little more I would have a gm system covered by warranty.

See if you can get a part number for the wiring harness!! I want to get just the harness. PLEASE!!! I'd greatly appreciate it. ASk the dealer or take a look at it afterward and see if there is a part number tag on it!

Thank you very much in advance!

Anyone know the difference between the stock MTX sub and JL or Kicker? I mean what would keep someone from changing them out?

These MTX Subs are .35 OHMs each wired in series for a near 1 OHM Load to the internal amp (.7)... It is impossible to find subs with these specs... They are specially made by MTX for their 200Watt internal amps..

I went through this whole mess when replacing an MTX Sub for my 2001 enclosure that came with the built in amp... The sub was damaged in shipment and I first replaced it with a 4 ohm sub... I had to turn the bass all the way UP on my receiver... Then I replaced it with a dual 2 ohm sub wired parallel for a 1 ohm load and that was a major improvement even though all the car audio installers said that the amp wouldn't handle this.... after more digging, I found out more of the 200 watt amp specs and bought some used .35 ohm MTX Subs from Ebay and WOW! What a differece! The bass just came alive in my system and it actually hit hard...

I'm pretty sure that all of the subs included in he 200watt internally loaded enclosures are .35 ohm... In other words, I would not recommend replacing the mtx subs with different subs... The amp will not give them near 200 watts because there will be too much of a difference in the load / ohm rating....

If you have a spare tire, can you still access it with the MTX system?

How difficult is it to remove? Would it be possible to quickly take it out to go racing?

There are two bolts behind the back seat that wont be easy to get to. If you really had to, I guess it could probably be done quickly. 4 bolts to unscrew, unplug the main wiring harness, and pull it out. I dont know if the speakers would work or not after the sub is unplugged though. You might have to race without the radio.

That's a very good point. I doubt that any of the "bashers" of the factory MTX audio system thought of that before proclaiming that 200watt setup would be far too weak.

At .35watt ohms each, that would be the equivalent of .7 watts total ohm load wired in series. I am currently running a single DVC Alpine Type R 10 4ohm wired in parallel for a total of 2 ohm load at 500W.

Comparing the factory option MTX setup at .7 ohms at 200w, that would be comparable 500w setup with 2 10's running at 2ohm. So I can see how this system would sound pretty good!

Read Below. Its not two 10"s its one 10" sub and a 10" passive radiator which deepens the bass. Its the same thing as the thunderlink system that they sell on MTX website.
  • 200W, Fan Cooled Amplifier
  • 10” Subwoofer w/ Passive RadiatorBass Control
