MTX RT-X03A - How Rare?
 
I'm trying to find a MTX RT-X03A electronic crossover from around 1999. How rare are they? I find X02A's and X01A's for sale but not the X03A's. Info is just as hard to find on the X03A. I'm gathering the pieces for an old school MTX build so any leads would be appreciated.

They are out there.A lot of times people fail to put model numbers on listings so they dont come up when searched for a specific model.
Sometimes an item that doesnt go up for sale for a while will stay like that until someone lists one.Then a ton of them will be on Ebay all in a row.

I've tried using "MTX" and "crossover" but no luck.

They were a 3 way 12db/oct with a summed mono for center channels,nothing extraordinary.

I know it's nothing special but I need one for my old school MTX build. Plus I like the fact it has high, center/ambiance, midbass, and subwoofer outputs.

Ain't that the truth.

Not sure if this one listed is the exact model you are looking for, but maybe a member on here local to the seller could help you out: car stereo system

Thanks for the lead. If it's a rt-x03 it's an older model that's silver. I need the rt-x03A for my build. I e-mailed him to double check but haven't heard back.

Glad to help. Where in Canada are you located?

Bit newer model of the X03A maybe?: MTX Electronic Crossover LSX2 with EBC External Bass Control Highpass Lowpass | eBay

Even the wayback machine has the 1, 2 but not the 03: https://web.archive.org/web/20030414...ts/crossovers/

Basic info on the late 90's, early 2000 lineup here, including the X03A: http://2004.mtxaudio.eu/IMG/pdf/Leaflet_MTX_2000_us.pdf

I'm in northern Ontario. Kakabeka Falls, just outside Thunder Bay. I already have a LSB1, LSX1, and a LSX2.

I'd have to double check but I have 6-2300's, 4-4320's, 2-4160's, 1-2160, and 1-280. A few of them are white models. I once saw a chrome 2300 on eBay but I don't know if it was original. The seller claimed it was.

Re: MTX RT-X03A - How Rare?
 
it was probably custom plated, ive never seen any mtx stuff chrome from the factory

Pheadrus 12-28-2013 09:23 PM

Re: MTX RT-X03A - How Rare?
 
That's what I figured. Plus chrome plating retains heat. Not something you want on any amp let alone a 2300.

Isn't that the truth, I used to run a 15" stroker d2 on a 2300, I'd have to go trade it in for a new 2300 once a week... I could literally fry an egg on it..

I will keep an eye out for one for you.

Some chrome 2300's here, not sure what the story is?: https://spokane.craigslist.org/pts/4261369590.html

Did you ever find this crossover?

Pheadrus 01-03-2014 11:23 AM

Re: MTX RT-X03A - How Rare?
 
I found one on Craigslist at a pawn shop in St. Louis for $40 but I have no way of looking it over or getting it.

I guess there were chrome 2300's after all. Thanks "The Dude" for posting the ad. The one I saw years ago was listed as a "Limited Edition" as well so they must exist. I think the amp actually said MTX 2300LE instead of MTX 2300 if I remember correctly. But like we said earlier, chrome doesn't dissipate heat very well so I don't see the point performance wise. Obviously they were for show cars or demo vehicles.

Re: MTX RT-X03A - How Rare?
 
I remember the chrome 2300 when it was out. I remember thinking that it was kind of stupid because of chrome retaining heat. Phoenix gold also had a chrome amp around the same time.

I had a 2300x and a 4300x. Great amps. Good luck finding your crossover.
