Make sure you have all of the setting on low and work your way up. Your MTX rating is only 300w which means 150 per channel. Not sure on the JL but there the best when it comes to amps. Make sure your speakers can handle the watts or better the RMS power. Must amps that are rated at 1000w only mean 500RMS. A 4 channel amplifier rated at 1000wats means to me 125RMS per channel.

first of all you should check the minimal impedance your amp handles , if is class d it should handle between 1-2 ohms total impedance in a mono conection , meaning whatever quantity of subs you have hooked to your amplifier,their total impedance should the minimum the amp handles that way all the power from your amplifier will be used.

How big of hole do i need for the mtx 6000 thunder 10in


The MTX Thunder 6000 T61544A is a 15" Subwoofer meaning you will need a 15" hole to fit the subwoofer into. The mounting plate that surrounds the subwoofer will extend past 15" allowing you to screw the sub in properly. Be sure to use a box that is at least 12 inches deep (sub is 10 inches deep by specifications + 2 inches for good air cushion behind.

Need to know how to wire my system ...I have the infinity reference series 611a I was told it was a mono block but it has two channels on the exterrior...also I have two 12 inch MTX thunder dual voice coil...


it all depends on what kind of box the mtx subs are in as far as wiring the subs. The best way would be take the speaker wire from both sub boxes and run the positive into the right positive then the negative into the left negative. and run 8 gauge wiring kit to the amp because 10 might be to small and 4 is to big 8 gauge is perfect for this amp.

Amp and sub have been working great together then all of a sudden the amp is not putting out enough power to push the sub. MTX Thunder 311D


check to see if one of the RCA cables is unplugged or bad. check the gain check the sub level control on the deck if yours has one.

Mtx thunder 6152 is getting way to hot and shuts its self off when it get really hot


okay, first thing i would do is turn down your gain. Sounds like you are over working the amp thats wire your amp gets hot and shut off, it's going into protection mode. Is your amp enough for your subs. Some times not getting enough power to your amp might do this too. But if your subs wattage is way over your amp watts, you need to upgrade your amp. Also check your subs and see how the are wired up with the ohms, And see if your amp can take a 1 ohm stable load or how ever it's wired up at. hope this was helpfull.

What is Positive and what is Negative


Hi Mason.
Are the positions colour coded in any way?
Red = Positive
Black = Negative
I've looked at some photo's from the website and at a guess I would say that yours are the push on crimp types, so no colour markings.
Have a look at the pdf wiring diagram they supply here as it may shed some light on things:
MTX Thunder US-XT12-44
I've looked over loads of forums but none seem to mention the wiring of these subs.
Understandably you want to get this right as they are a very nice set of subs when they're up and running.
If all else fails try looking at the MTX contact list and ringing one of their supported dealers for more info.
Regards
Mike

Most power out of amp w/out blowing subs


you may only be able to get but so much out of the subs. If you turn the bass down a little so the that you dont drive the subs so hard you may get a little more wattage out of them

Directed 1100d 2-channel amp


You will bridge the amp, and if the subs are all 8 ohm subs, you can probably wire them all in parallel, if they are all 4 ohm subs, you would wire then in series.
