it weighs 369 pounds, can that be mounted in a MDF box, I'm just worried the MDF would crack, one way to solve that is have a support peice holding up the rear of the sub inside the box

who has first hand experience with one of these subs? it must be very hard to work with as its very heavy and also how much is it worth?

There have been a few topics where people expressed opinions close to above one as well as some positive ones.
I'm sure most cars would not thank you for the 300lb sub lol.

mtx site mentions Escalade owners, Navigator drivers, and Hummer crews so they can take the weight better then any car would.

Then there is the problem of coming up with 6,000 w rms, that needs some big amps and the vehical needs to be able to keep with that load, also not easy

would $10,000 be enough to cover all the costs needed for one of those? sub, amp, box, power upgrades to vehical etc

I am probably the only dealer on the board that has actually had hands on with this sub. It was here on demo for a couple of weeks late this summer. It does indeed weigh that much and it must be rear supported. It is best to make a steel or aluminum mount that bolts to the backside of the driver for this application. The front baffle board should also be made of at least 2" materials to ensure that is does not flex and can carry the weight.

$ wise, $10K is a start at powering this beast properly. I would look at adding a substantial amount to that to ensure that it operates properly.
