MTX Subwoofer upgrade

Does anyone recommend the MTX Subwoofer and Amp upgrade for the Camaro? It's cost is almost 1 grand. Is it worth the price tag or are there better options?

If I was going to Spend a Grand it wouldnt be for MTX

Maybe JL Audio, Focal or Something like that.

JL make a Sweet box and sub Combo. Or you Can get your own Box from Subthump.com

Just some suggestions.

From personal experience I wouldn't recommend MTX. Didn't like their subs, never used their amps.

Get the stealth box. It comes with 3 10' JL Subs, and it comes primed so you can color match for the SAME price!

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76620

Comes with Box, Subs
and they have a kit too which included amp and stuff

I was in HH Gregg in Tampa , and I saw a MTX 10in. powered sub ,that looked exactly like the one used in the Camaro, for $399. I even questioned the salesman about it and he said it was 250 watts.

If I have my local professional audio shop install an aftermarket sub in my car does that void any warranty?

I have the Factory sub. Completes the factory set up well , kinda pricey, and now the pass with seat down has sub in it.
I had the factory rubber mat in the trunk and that will not fit with this set up.

I ended up buying an enclosure off ebay, two P3 Rockfork Fosgate 10s and 500w Fosgate Amp and I paid a heck of a lot less than the MTX

I like mine... I wouldn't pay a dealer to install it though... it's a easy enough install to do it yourself.

I just recently turned the knob on the system to "Max". And turned the bass on the radio down.

current setup:
Knob turned to max
Treble : 1
Mid: 1
Bass: 6

Sounds awesome.

I put this in tonight, took about an hour. Easy, clean, plug and play deal. This is my daily driver and I am not interested in doing a custom deal on this car. I must say, I played with it for about 30 minutes after the install, and initial impressions are very positive, works very will with the existing BA system.

Cost me $780 total shipped to my door, and an hour to install, I am happy with that.

heard it. Overkill IMO due to the fact the rest of the system can't keep up. You'll just wind up upgrading everything else(all over again).

If you are not into competition speakers for thousands of dollars you can get these for $750-800 and they do sound very good and are plug and play. Sure many will say you can get better but, I think better will cost more and there is nothing wrong with the sound of these. They wont win a bass competition but they work very well with the factory setup. I am pleased with mine. Its all I needed and upgraded the factory bass immensely.

Thats all i'm looking for, did you install yourself? That would be sweet to get it for around $750, do you know who is selling them for that?

No, having an afterrmarket audio system installed cannot void your factory warranty.

Thank you also, I was looking @ the GM box because it was made to go with the fac. system, a matched set. I do understand what you are saying about I can get a more powerful system for about the same amount of $$$$. But I just don't need all of that bass for what I want or listen to.

I want a sub and amp but I really don't want to lose the pass-thru. Otherwise I would get the MTX.
