MTX TP1200 ThunderPro2 12" 2-Way PA Loudspeaker
MTX TP1200 ThunderPro2 12" 2-Way PA Loudspeaker is rated 4.5556 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleasedI am very happy with these. They are the best I have found for the money. Clear and very punchy. You do not need a sub with these. I powered them with a Crown XLS1000. I mounted them to a ceiling in a small area that was turned into a spin class. Over all, MTX hit it with this one. Would also be perfect as a portable setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Speaker for the money....I bought two of these for small P.A. and DJ events. They not only do a great job but the sound is great for the money. Why buy the high price speakers when these will do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and ExperienceAfter looking online for awhile for these exact speakers, I found the best price here. And the fast shipping was just right for my business needs that week. I ordered 6 speakers on Tues and received them Thur. Plus they gave me a huge discount on shipping. Looking foward to doing more business with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great bang for the buckI just used these speakers at a barn dance and what great sound. these speakers need a good amp to get alot of base out of them, but for the cost they are excellent. i do wish they had a handle on the back so I could carry both at the same time. also wish they had speak-on connectors. i like them better than the PV-12's even though they are slightly heavier with a good amp they produce more bass

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded My ExpectationsI bought these for an annual fireworks party my friend has. In the past, I have DJed this with some OLD Marantz 10" that I refoamed, and for the last few years some Dayton III MTMs and a Dayton 10" Quatro sub I built. While this setup is quite capable for this party, I have wanted to upgrade for a while. Plus, I recently sold the MTMs to my buddy, so now was the time to do it.The plan had always been to build something around Dayton 10" or 12" woofers. The reason I had plenty of time before was the same reason I had no money - unemployed.Cut to this year and I am working outside the country. Money is no longer a problem but no time at all. I needed some speakers due to selling half of them and wanted to upgrade anyway. The Thunderpros are one of the cheaper choices. My friend had some MTX subs back in the day that were pretty good, so I figured Why Not?I expected loud speakers, with passable but not great fidelity. I also wasn't sure about distortion if you started turning the bass up.They weren't as loud as I expected, until my friend made me stand right in front instead of right next to. Like most Pro speakers, these are a bit more directive than home. This made a huge difference, they were quite loud. But the thing that got me was the fidelity! Sure, they aren't $5000 per pair or the Dayton IIIs, but the fidelity was quite good, WAY more than I was expecting. The thing that really blew me away, though, was the power handling. These could take the output of my Behringer A500 amp and get plenty loud without a problem. I think the little distortion I heard was from the amp. This was really incredible! I was not expecting this; I expected them to not be able to handle it if I cranked the bass.I highly recommend these speakers to anyone that is in this sort of situation. You are basically getting speakers that get plenty loud, handle the power well, and sound quite good while doing it. A lot of cheaper Pro speakers get the volume, but have mediocre sound quality.These speakers and the A500 amp are a great pair. I wouldn't bother with one of the cheaper amps (look at those *RMS* watts and ignore anything else). The A500 has EXCELLENT fidelity and probably just about the right amount of power for these speakers.My biggest regret is not getting 4 of these (or perhaps 2 more 10s).

Are these really 4 ohms?

Are these cabs really 4 ohms now? Because I already own a pair, but they're 8 ohms a piece, and I for obvious reasons would like to know whether MTX changed the resistance on these cabs from what they used to be, or if it is simply a webpage error before I buy another pair, like I am planning to do.
Asked by: behemoth
Yes, they are rated at 4 ohms now. MTX says "MTX Audio has redesigned its ThunderPro2 professional loudspeakers series". They are 4 ohm rated as most "pro-sound" cab's are rated 4 ohms, vs 8 ohms commonly seen in home/light duty use applications. You can use the newer set with the older, together, however your amp would see a load of about 2.66 ohm/channel.

Suitable in a warehouse gym?

I'm contemplating running three or four of these on a Crown XLS1000 in my 3000sq ft warehouse gym. I'd like some feedback on how well (or not) this might work? It is a CrossFit gym and the workouts themselves can be pretty loud (bumper plates/bars being dropped from overhead etc. Also- the source would be either an iPod or iPhone if that makes a difference?Thanks!
Asked by: JMWFL
If you go to a store - you will see lots of speakers in the ceiling - laid out almost like sprinklers on a lawn. The idea is that the sound is even. Too few speakers - loud spots and soft spots. If you have a large, live space and can place the speakers up really high, you can get away with 4 - providing the area is square - if it's an "L" you need 6. Don't underpower !!! That blows speakers faster than anything. The Crown XLS1000 is good for a pair of speakers. In such a large cubic volume - I'd have one amp per pair of speakers. As for iPod, iPhone - you need a preamp that recovers the bass or the music will be pretty lifeless and have no kick - whichi is the point of driiving music for a workout.

What is a good replacement woofer and tweeter for this cabinet?

Have 4 of these and some were blown. Was able to mix and match to get 3 working systems but now I am left with 1 blown tweeter and 1 blown woofer. Im looking to replace them with the original parts if possible.
Asked by: Peter
I would recommend the Dayton PA310-8, listed below, as a great replacement woofer.

Amp for a setup I am working on

I need to drive 5 of these maybe 6 in a arena setup. What amp should I consider to drive these. I would use this setup for PA and laptop sound input
Asked by: gowings
A series / parallel wiring configuration is possible and easy if the install is to be perminent and not moved. I would consider using combinations of 2 speakers to achieve a uniform sound balance and even distribution if the venue is or is close to a rectangle.To series wire you would need to use the binding post wiring option. If you used 6 speakers, 3 on each side of a stereo amp, you cound parallel (daisy chain) 2 and the 3rd. speaker in series with those two. 2- @4 ohms each would be 2 Ohms and the 3rd. in series would be a total of 6 ohms and well within the safe parameters for almost any power amp.Wire up 3 on the right and 3 on the left and enjoy. I would think any stereo power amp producing 150 watts to 250 watts woul yield sufficient headroom for most applications unless you are attemting to achieve live band or club venue sound pressure levels.Good Luck

ep4000 amp and 6 of these 12"mtx

Will this amp suffice to power these 6 speakers. I have one cable run of approx. 150 feet before it connects to the first speaker of that line then moves on to 2 others in that series. So 2 runs one totaling 150 feet the other 250 feet. Any thoughts on what speaker cable to buy. I am handy in soldering if raw cable and connectors are more feasible. Or do i buy 100 feet and 50 feet and 25`s to make this runs that are permanent. Not sure parts-express sells that. These speakers are 15 feet in the air.
Asked by: gowings
Yes, because this amp is rated at 8 - 4 - and 2 ohms you can daisy chain (parallel) the MTX speakers together. Although this is not an ideal wiring configuration, it will work.My suggestion since you are running such a great distance with your speaker wire is that you a minimum of #12ga speaker wire and if possible I would use the heavier Monster audio speaker wire, With speaker runs this long you will experience significant signal (power) loss in the wire. The heavier the wire guage the lower the loss.Good Luck

Amp recommendations for two of these 12" speakers?

What amp should I get? I have two of these 12" speakers and I wanted your guys' opinion on what I should get.
Asked by: Dylan
As a general role; always choose al least 2 times more from speaker RMS power and if it's available, adjust limit to rms power. Choosing more amplifier power is always protect (most people think oposite) speaker; especially tweeters.
