Using a five-dimensional warped model including a scalar potential with an exponential behavior in the infrared, and strong back-reaction over the metric, we study the electroweak phase transition, and explore parameter regions that were previously inaccessible. The model exhibits gravitational waves and predicts a stochastic gravitational wave background observable, both at the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna and at the Einstein Telescope. Moreover, concerning the collider signatures predictions, the radion evades current constraints but may show up in future LHC runs.
