MTX Audio JackHammer T9922

I'm not one given to excess, I mean I have to settle for a pair of Cerwin Vega AT-15s, but these are just insane...

Size comparison shot...

Have you ever noticed that the people who go to the extreme of customizing their $100,000 cars with the biggest and most blinged out wheels, custom alligator skin interiors, and even steering wheels encrusted with diamonds always seem to have the same 12” woofers as the 16 year-old kid down the street? For these people, the word “excess” doesn't cross their minds when it comes to customizing their car. So, MTX has crafted an all new, 22" SuperWoofer for anyone who's got what it takes to go to the extreme—the MTX Audio JackHammer T9922.

JackHammer is the most enormous, mind-blowing subwoofer ever created. You will literally not believe it until you see it. Standing in at 23” tall, 320 pounds, and with 12,000 watt peak music power handling, you will be hard-pressed to find something that will get in the ring with this heavyweight.

* Carbon fiber and glass fiber dust cap with aluminum honeycomb center

* Expanded polypropylene cone with mica filler for reduced mass and increased stiffness

* FEA designed progressive roll spider with 10 AWG integrated tinsel leads woven in to allow for 2.5” of linear cone movement one way

* 900 ounce strontium ferrite magnet with extended magnetic field gap technology and aluminum shorting ring

* 6.5” voice coil with a flat wound, long-excursion design incorporating 2.5” of x-max and 17 AWG high temperature aluminum wire

* Aluminum heatsink to maintain the optimum voice-coil temperature

* 6,000 RMS, 12,000 peak music power

The JackHammer SuperWoofer represents excess in every way and this enormous subwoofer lives for high SPL and window shattering bass. But, the T9922 is designed for sonic quality, and high SPL, what we call SQL. JackHammers are shipped in either the SPL mode, with dual 2Ω voice coils, or as the SQL model with dual 4Ω voice coils. A replaceable cone assembly is also available, for switching between "every day" listening (SQL), and competition (SPL).

T9922-44 22” JackHammer SQL SuperWoofer,
Dual 4Ω (6,000 W RMS)

T9922-22 22" JackHammer SPL SuperWoofer,
Dual 2Ω (6,000 W RMS)

This, presumably, is so you are able to park your car five miles away and still hear the bass? Because, if you use it while you are actually *in* the car, you are going to be either deaf, psychotic or gelatinous on the inside...and possibly all three.

Saw an episode of Pimp My Ride (check out "Jake's Buick") on MTV two nights ago (that show is a guilty pleasure for me). The crew took a 1985 Buick Century beater (rolling POS, actually) and did it up sweet in '50s style hot rod, flat black paint, red scallops, baby moon hubcaps and 4 inch whitewalls, lake pipes, real nice looking. They sacrificed the back seat to install this monster. It took a cherry picker to manuver it into the car. The decibel meter installed in the car registered over 100 db easily. In the the trunk were several batteries and six monster amps delivering 6000-8500 watts of power to feed the beast. The tv audio didn't even approximate the sound of course, but it clearly was shaking the camera. This thing looks and sounds like it was stolen from the Death Star. Not. Safe. Cool, but so far over the top it's in orbit.

You didn't mention the price. I'm guessing you can't get it at Car Toys for $500.

My bass rig would do serious damage, at about 1500 W into 2 10" speakers and one 15" speaker at 4 ohms. The real question is how to power it with a single 12v battery.

It should also be pointed out that UT is hopefully using his bass rig in a venue somewhat larger than the average 1970's American sedan. His cut of the gate wouldn't really amount to enough to pay for his strings, otherwise.

The guy on the right side of this picture has a priceless look on his face. Something rather like, "Maybe if I stay a respectful distance from it, it won't hurt me."

Looks to me like that chromed golf cart it is mounted on is propelled by the monster. It also looks like it is sporting a Missouri license plate.

Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase 'wall of sound'.

It's sooo shiny ...

But I know I don't need one. I don't need audio reproduction that good.

I spent too much of the 80s standing near speakers at rock shows in small clubs enjoying bands with big sound systems.

They really do go up to 11.

oh, and on that message board? I loved this guy's response to the above posted ...

Reading that board is a good solid reminder of the target market for systems like that.
