MTX Audio is the choice of Metallica’s James Hetfield

Tuesday 23 November 2004

For over 20 years James Hetfield has been rocking the world together with his band Metallica. Now James wanted a audio system in his Ford F150 truck that echoes his passion and volume with a customized cutting edge look like his music. Rick Dore of Rick Dore Kustoms together with MTX Audio created a mobile audio install that met the astronamical expectations of this heavy metal rocker.

A special bandpass enclosure was dezigned housing 2x 15" Thunder9500 Superwoofers, the port of this enclosure was created by cutting a hole through the cabin of the pick-up. MTX Thunder942 amps were installed to drive these subs. MTX prototype AXE 6" seperates were used in each door and as centerchannel to build a complete 5.1 system. A MTX Thunder1004 was used to drive the seperates. Streetwires ZN6 RCA and Ultra Flow power and ground wire were use to wire the complete system.
