    Center Console Subs

    Anybody here try the MTX thunderform 10" in their center console? I ran two 12's in a sealed behind 3rd row in my 05 and still have the subs and amp but I'm considering just doing the MTX enclosure for out of sight and out of mind.


    I'm wondering how much that 10" will deliver.

    I had 2 10" MTX Thunderform 4500s in a previous vehicle. I thought they were pretty decent. I'm in the process of getting them in the Escalade actually.

    I was going to do the two 12's in the rear as I did in the 05 but now I'm thinking this center console 10" might itch that scratch and not be in the way.

    I'm new to the Escalade so forgive my ignorance but I understand the Bose system has a 12" woofer in the center console right? Because I just dont get the bass I thought a Bose system would produce.

    That sub in the center console is more like an 8" if that. It's made to fill in the lows.

    well, scratch the dual 12" box from the 05, it doesn't fit. There is less room behind the 3rd row in the 07 than the 05.

    Knowing Bose, it's a 6.5" paper coned "woofer". If you really want to see something impressive out of a small package and fewer watts look at Bill Fitzmaurice's autotuba. Folded horns are AMAZING.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on this MTX deal. I'm thinking I'm going to get the powered one to simplify the process. Not sure if I'll put it in or have a local stereo shop do it.

    Let us know how it turns out. I think the Bose system is overrated. I had a Yukon's before the Escalade and replaced the OEM speakers with Kenwood's and added a 12" P2's in a ported box with a 500w amp and it was great. Well, it had a little more bass than I really wanted as I listen mostly to 70's rock, but it sure was better than what I have now.

    well, I called them(mtx) and asked and they said it will fit. I went ahead and ordered it, I'll report back when I get it and install it.
