Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A little pricier than I normally go on car speakers, but I'm glad I did! These are the best sounding 5 1/4's I've ever had, and I've had Rockfords and Polks. Surprising amount of bass from such a small speaker, I don't think you'll do better than this in a 5 1/4. I still have a sub to fully round out the sound, but these sound darn good on their own.

Pros: Good sound, good bass, nice grills


Worth the money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I finally replaced the stock speakers and head unit in my 2002 F150 and I couldn't be happier with the Morels. The sound is outstanding, even without amplification. Install was fast and easy thanks to the free wiring harness and adapter plate.

Pros: Great sound, easy install

Cons: None


Gordon from Geneva, IL on 1/5/2018

These are fantastic. I A/B'd them against JL Audio and Alpine and these were by far the best sounding. Highly recommended and at a very reasonable price. Quality amplification definitely helps. I am very picky about my audio and these pass the test with flying colors.



Clear and Punchy!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Another great product recommendation from Crutchfield! These can take some serious power and still maintain clear voices and punchy bass. Worth every penny and was a serious upgrade from the stock speakers from my Honda.

Pros: Clear, punch bass, easy install. Morel is standing up to it's name.

Cons: None

Good over all speaker. Amazing for the price. They fit well and are easy to install. Very clear high end, and decent bass.



Very good sound quality

John from Minneapolis, MN on 12/6/2016

Very good speakers for someone wanting to upgrade in limited space on a budget. Smooth treble, natural sounding male voices, and good build quality distinguish these from most other speakers in their price range. Keep in mind that 70W isn't a ton of power, and you won't get deep bass out of any 5 1/4" speaker (although it sounds like one reviewer had a bad experience, it's likely due to bad installation rather than a bad pair of speakers if it affects both channels).

Pros: Sound quality, value

Cons: Hard to get any bass out of any 5 1/4" speaker

Should have stayed with factory set up

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Loud when they want to be. Bought these for all 4 of my door speakers in my 2010 Ford Focus, as well as the recommended amp (JL 400/4D). Sounded great when I had them installed at a local shop bit soon started acting up. Clipping in and out when the gain on the amp was barely at a quarter of its power. Turning the gain up made them sound garbled and very distorted. Tech at another shop ( there are many of them in my area) said that they sounded like they could handle the power that they are rated for and that I should look into getting something else.

Pros: Reasonable price

Cons: Over rated power handling.

Nice speakers, well built but nothing special. They are over priced for the quality and sound.

Pros: Well built

Cons: over priced
