This weekend, the right side MTX 4500 sub started sounded horrible. I pushed on sub, and no movement. I pulled it out of the enclosure, and the sub split the surround and the coil is now off center and touching the magnet. The sub is DOA...

They were rated at 200w RMS, but my amp was rated at 250w RMS.
Guess my Rockford maybe pushing a lil more than 250..lol
Anyway, short of cash, so I just ordered a couple of RF P2D4-10's. They have a higher power handling. These are just to get me by until this summer. I will then replace with 2 Alpine Type R 10's and Im replacing my P500-2 with a JL Audio JX1000/1D. I like the amp, and it rates its power output at 12.5V @ 2ohm = 900W. Also for a price of $290, I think I will be much happier. I love my Punch P500-2 but I like many of you want more....LOL

I will upload new pics when the P2D4-10's arrive and I install this weekend. I also have some RCA cables to re-run.

So... i feel like a complete dumbass... I made sure the RF 10" Subs fit by the depth dimensions, but I didnt even think about the top mount frame dimensions.

The new subs dont fin into the MTX Thunderform enclosure.
The frame is about 1/2 inch larger than the frame of the old MTX Subs.


here the sub sits in the enclosure, but will not fit because the frame is larger than the enclosure will allow.



Here is the MTX on top of the RF sub.


Im not sure if I want to sell these subs locally, (1 still never opened, and 1 was opened, but put right back into packaging), or if I want to replace the MTX enclosure with something else.

I dont like the foxbox and probox enclosures, you have to raise the back seat with both of these enclosures, and still get less internal volume than with the MTX enclosure and I dont have the rear seat raised at all.

Anyone know how hard it would be to modify the enclosure, and form a new top and new Sub mounting hole?
