i saw an episode of Pimp my Ride where they had to install a custom steel frame to mount this sucker into a guy's car. the woofer weighs in at over 350 pounds, and it makes you wonder how any car could still drive properly with it in there. its like having a GIANT fat guy in your backseat all the time. or a bunch of dead bodies.

why oh why would you ever put something so ridiculous in your car, i just dont know. they mounted a ... decibel meter? ... in the guys dash so he wouldnt go deaf. if he turned it up to loud, it would give him a flashing warning sign. id say he will still go deaf in a month...

Strontium Ferrite magnet... Couldn't they have used neodynium and saved a bunch on weight?
As for practicality, you could install 5 (obscenely expensive IMO) Audiobahn subs to get the same power handling with lighter weight and more installation flexibility at less than 1/4 the price.

Ok, that just totally blows my mind. First, how would you even begin to build an enclosure that would come close to having enough structural rigidity to handle the pressure that thing will put out? And second, if you need an engine hoist just to mount your subwoofer, you have a serious problem. The only thing this sub is good for is pure DB competition...maybe. It's completely impractical and I can't believe it's not a hoax. Is MTX really that stupid? And is anybody really stupid enough to actually buy one?

hey, 3 cylinder engines are like half a V6 man! they go fast!

my dad has a chevy sprint. it came with NO sway bars, front or rear... we've upgraded that thing suspension-wise so much. ultra thick sway bars and stiffer springs all around. its fun, but only around corners.

but yeah, if i had the money to buy ridiculous spinners and stupid 400 pound subwoofers... id go and buy an apartment.

You don't need an enclouser the sub is open air. And the last I checked (8-10 monthes ago) you coundnt buy one, pimp my ride did so they could be the first to do it. MTX makes it for a concert sub.

Wow, someone else on here owns one. That car was a blast in its own little way, lol.

This sub was made as an example.
It's not meant to be sold to everyone, just an example of what they are capable of producing.
It's similar to rockfords 10,000 watt amp, just for show...
