About This Product


MTX THUNDER500-1 500-watt RMS Mono Class D Amplifier

MTX THUNDER..A name synonymous with car audio for over 20 years has a reputation for power, performance, and reliability. The THUNDER amplifier line has seen numerous technological advancements throughout its life and continues to be one of the most recognized and sought after products in the car audio world today.

The MTX THUNDER500.1 mono block amplifier is the product of many of those advancements making it perfect for that “Bass in your face” attitude.


Made for Power, Built for Bass

The THUNDER500.1 is a high powered 500-watt RMS amplifier designed to be installed in almost any vehicle due to its small chassis size. Its power capability makes it a perfect choice for running single or multi-woofer sound systems without worrying about compromising bass output or quality.

Technologically Advanced

This amp features a high-efficiency Class D circuit design chosen for its ability to produce high output power while minimizing power loss to heat build-up. It’s this capability that makes it perfect for driving woofers to their limits and delivering that vehicle shaking bass you want.

It’s not just the circuit type that makes this amp tick, but also the parts used and how they are installed. We use surface mount technology to help create the compact design of the amplifier and improve its reliability and resistance to vibration. High grade components are chosen for the quality and to ensure the amplifier delivers maximum power output when you need it.

In addition to the circuit design, we’ve also added the features you need to fine tune your system sound such as the built-in variable low pass crossover, selectable bass boost circuit and variable subsonic filter. Additionally, we know how important the speaker and power connections are to a properly working sound system. This is why we use set-screw style terminals to provide the most secure connection possible which minimizes any power loss while delivering all the power to the amplifier and to the speakers.


Variable Crossover
Tune a wide range of speakers to perfection

Compact Design
The small footprint chassis allows for installation in space challenged vehicles

Selectable Bass Boost
Selectable 0, 6, or 12dB bass boost centered @ 50Hz

Variable Butterworth Crossover
A 12dB/Oct crossover that allows you to set the frequency your speakers will play down or up to

Variable Subsonic Filter
A variable low frequency, high pass filter designed to block potentially damaging bass frequencies

Triple Protection Circuitry
Thermal, DC Offset, and Short Circuit Protection circuitry ensures the amplifier will protect itself in the event of a problem

Extruded Aluminum Heat Sink
The custom heat sink design maximizes heat transfer away from the circuitry protecting the amplifier

Surface Mount PCB Design
Decreases chassis size, improves layout efficiency and increases vibration resistance without sacrificing performance or sound.
