Discover Morel components for yourself

I dream of having Morel speakers in my car, and the Maximo Series comes at a price tag that could make that dream come true. Every bit of Morel's passion for sound is present in this tough speaker system.

Maximo sound

This Morel Maximo 6 component speaker system uses a treated 6-1/2" paper composite woofer and a separate 1" soft dome tweeter to deliver impressive full-range sound. This efficient system will respond well even when driven by a factory radio, but it'll handle up to 90 watts RMS, so you'll get the best performance powering these component speakers with an aftermarket amplifier. The external crossover delivers an ideal blend of the highs and lows for an incredible stereo image. Morel also includes mounting solutions for ideal tweeter placement.

These are great speakers. There is no legitimate reason to pay more then this for car speakers, when a pair of these and a sound deadened door would out perform a 2 or 300 dollar speaker thrown in a door without the deadening for the same price.

1991 Acura Legend

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Best sounding speakers I have owned. Went from alpine type s to infinity kappa to these and these sound quite a bit better. They are shallower and smaller then I expected which made them easy to install. They fit perfectly in the factory locations of my 91 acura legend. I have these running straight off headunit (cda-9835) and it sounds great. Some day I might add an amp to them to make them really shine, but I wouldnt say it is necessarily necessary :)

Pros: Small enough to mount in my factory locations Sound for price is incredible Decent build quality given the price

Cons: Didnt buy sooner

Amazing speakers, amazing price

2017 Toyota Tacoma

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

All I can say is wow. Wow for these speakers and wow for Crutchfield. I won't bother comparing these to the stock speakers in my 2017 Tacoma. Almost anything you replace stock speakers with will be an upgrade. I had spent most of my time researching component 6x9s so I was slightly skeptical when I chatted with Chad and he recommended these 6.5s. But I trusted his opinion and I am so glad I did. Whatever type of music you listen to, it will sound amazing with these speakers. Very crisp highs(not too crisp), balanced midsized and plenty of bass. I paired these with the Morel Maximo 6 coaxials in the back. Right now I am powering these with only the stock head unit and they sound great. I can tell they will sound even better with a small amp, which is hard to even imagine. The install was not as simple as it might be in most vehicles because of the way Toyota wired the stock tweeters to the door woofers. But when I got stuck and called Crutchfield for help, Mike helped talk me through what I would need to do to get it working. For anyone thinking about installing these in a 3rd Gen Tacoma, I would recommend using the tweeter mounts Morel provides and attaching them to the top of the grill above the old tweeter location, directed at the opposite side headrest. You will want to put the Morel crossover in the empty space where the old tweeters used to sit, otherwise you would have to run the tweeter wire down into the door and that would be a huge pain. Thank you Chad and Mike!

Pros: Super clear, warm sound. Sound amazing with all types of music.

Cons: Not a single con. You will not find better speakers at this price.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These are great speakers-but they need a little more oomph than my 2008 factory headunit can provide-When I was in touch with Tech Support they strongly recommended that I put an amplifier on these to really make them shine which I'm going to do I have to say over all I'm very happy with the crutchfield company and i really enjoyed upgrading my entire system I'm sure once I pair this with my new Alpine stereo and Alpine amplifier my new system that I created is going to be off the hook ! Their customer service has been fantastic and they definitely deserve 5 stars

Pros: Easy install

Cons: None

These speakers sound great. I wish I'd put them in 10 years ago ! Crutchfield said that the did not fit in an S2000, but they fit just fine with a Modifry adapter ring. Go for it, you'll be glad you did.

Pros: Sound great. Easy to install with either Modifry adapter or a home made one. Modifry is what I'd do if I was doing it again.

Cons: None. Wish I'd done this 10 years ago.

Hands down best speakers, the quality of the product for the price no speaker comes close. Easly $100 cheaper than any other website as well. I listen to just about every genre of music, and can listen to it all as loud as I want with no distortion.

Best speaker for the price!

Crutchfield customer from Lago Vista, TX on 2/18/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The are the best speakers in their category, especially for the price. I am using them in a powered speaker design with an active crossover and they sound phenomenal. I am only using the woofers in my design but sure the tweeters would sound great too. I needed a tweeter with a wave guide or I would have used the tweeters. The builds are hi quality. The grills also look very nice!! I would definitely buy them again.

Pros: Great sounding and great price. Nice packaging.

Cons: I can not find anything wrong with them to complain about!!LOL

Sound is much more clear than weak stock speakers. Install was fairly easy.

Pros: Clear sound, heavy duty build quality.

Cons: Shipped missing a tweeter, which was quickly replaced. Then during install I noticed the box was missing 4 of the speaker mounting screws. Was almost impossible finding replacement screws. Made the install take days instead of hours.

Morel Maximo 6 tweeters too bright for me

Andy from Beverly Hills, FL on 11/2/2018

2006 Toyota Tacoma

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed these speakers in the door panels of my 06 Tacoma. The head unit is a Sony XAV-AX1000. Using preamp outputs to a Pioneer GM-D1004 compact amplifier bridged for 90 watts RMS X 2. My first impression was good solid bass with remarkably clear highs from the tweeters. After listening to different types of music the tweeters were not pleasing to the ears as they were too bright and overpowered. Called tech support who recommended setting the 10 band EQ to max attenuation in the 4k to 16k ranges and also do a volume offset to reduce the power. This did help but after a few days the high frequencies were still wearing on my ears. These crossovers have no attenuation settings that would have likely resolved my problem as the tweeters are high on the door panel and unobstructed. My previous speakers in other vehicles have been Polks that have the attenuation settings and -3 to -6 have always worked well for me. I will be returning these speakers and purchasing the Polk DB652 as the advisor recommended speakers with the attenuation settings and silk dome tweeters as they are softer. My advice to other shoppers: If you prefer a softer warmer speaker let your advisor know up front otherwise you may be disappointed. If your want a loud bright tweeter to place down lower in your vehicle these might be great. All this also depends on your hearing as well. If you have hearing loss in the middle and upper frequencies then these might be especially good for you.

Pros: Well made, great sounding low frequencies.

Cons: Wish the crossovers were adjustable for the tweeters

Fantastic speaker. Loud and clear. Connected to a pioneer D8604 amp. These transformed the car stereo. Great deal from Crutchfield on sale. This was my first purchase from Crutchfield and they are fantastic. They included an installation manual and some free installation components. Shipping was fast. Couldn't be happier.

Pros: Sound, volume, quality.

Cons: Integrating the tweeter in the stock 4runner mount took some creativity and customization. Crutchfield does list this as not compatible with my Gen4 4Runner. This is probably why.

Disappointed in the sound quality from these. One of my OEM speakers was blown so I bought this set on recommendation of a Crutchfield rep. The tweeters sound inferior to my old OEM ones. The speakers are a little poorer quality as well. Would not recommend this set.

Cons: Poor Bass Tweeters give dull sound

Exceptional Value - Excellent Sound Character

Eric from Michigan on 10/17/2018

2008 Honda CRV EX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've held off on reviewing these speakers for a while because I wanted to be confident about what I'm writing. I've had them installed in my 2008 Honda CR-V now for 3'ish months. What I will say is that I do not think these can be beat whatsoever by anything else in their price point. I got them during a discount and I can say that for that price, they're excellent. I will not provide what I feel are somewhat useless reviews about these being an improvement over stock systems as that's essentially valueless. Anything is better than stock. But that was not the case here. I installed these replacing aftermarket RF 6.5" coax speakers which, were actually not bad drivers. However, I wanted components to eventually run them active, so I went with these. Initially, I had them running passive and they sounded excellent even in that state. My system consists of these components up front with a Pioneer DEH-80PRS Head Unit and an Infinity Reference 4555a 5-Channel amp. 10" Pioneer TS downfire sub. No rear speakers. I'm now running these speakers active through the 80PRS. The amp only offers 45 x 4 RMS and I feel that for 99.9% of people, this is more than sufficient. I may choose at some point to install another amp that's a bit higher wattage, but there's truly no need. I only experience the slightest bit of distortion at very high volumes and ONLY when playing music that's very dynamic and aggressive.

Pros: Not too bright Not tinny at all Really provide a great sound color Excellent tweeter mounting hardware provided

Cons: None. These are excellent. Do not hesitate to buy.

I replaced the factory speakers in my 2018 Kia Sorento and right away could tell the difference. I could never differentiate the factory tweeters from the normal speakers during any music. The crossover box I guess makes all the difference because I can definitely tell with these Morel's. Very happy with my purchase

Pros: Cross over Ease of installation Awesome sound

Clear and warm sound!

Brandon from Charleston, MS on 8/22/2018

2011 Nissan Altima

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the price, I'm totally satisfied with these. Running them with 70 watts each didn't leave me satisfied initially. I replaced the old amp with a fosgate p300x2, and now these speakers really shine. They are crystal clear, warm, and are plenty loud. As others have said, these speakers bring out details in music that you wouldn't notice on a factory system. I'd recommend going ahead and getting an amp that puts out 100 watts each to them, and adjust the gain properly.

Pros: Budget friendly, amazing upgrade over factory sound.

Cons:

These are great because it doesn't need much power (using a very old 50w Lightning amp and it can get plenty loud without losing quality) and the tweeters aren't harsh and sound amazing. One of the best front door speakers you can get at this price.

Morel Maximo 6

Miguel from Sanger, CA on 6/29/2018

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've installed two other brands of components in my kick panels before these, and I can honestly say now- these are the best, and last ones needed. At high volume, I hear no distortion, no harsh tweeter sound, or any notes that would indicate a struggling component set. At 90rms to each side, they sound amazing. I was able to lower my crossover slope in the head unit, to bring back some of that mid bass I was missing. Because the other two component sets before, sounded like the were going to blow. Not these. My hearing isn't that great, but I can hear instruments, and guitar strumming better in certain songs. Details that I was missing before. I can only imagine what Morel's higher end components sound. Even with that note- I am still impressed with these. A budget component set, with high end sound.

Pros: Clean sound, warm tone, no harsh tweeter sound. Included crossovers have a small footprint, which helped in finding a place to put them at, without getting in the way.

Cons: Included female quick slide terminals(speaker wire connectors) could be of better quality. I made sure to have some gold plated terminals on hand to make the install a breeze. I would recommend the same. FYI- Regular, and thinner female quick slide terminals are being used(refer to speaker photo with the male speaker terminals showing)

Morel. Paying for the name???

Crutchfield customer from Locust Grove, OK on 4/23/2018

2006 Nissan Frontier

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Sound good, but to me, build quality does not support the price. Appears to be stamped steel woofer baskets. I bent the terminal tab trying to push the wires on. I had to put pressure on the bottom of tab (being careful not to damage the underside of the woofer). I installed a set of four of the Maximo 6 in the doors of my '06 Nissan Frontier crew cab. I had to enlarge the cut out in the 6x9 adapter plate on one set. I did use butyl type sound damper in doors. I didn't get carried away. Bottom of doors. Some inside the doors. Damper inside the plastic panels. Put woofers in foam cups with cutouts so the woofer can breath. Tweeters were put in the door panels facing up. I unplugged the OEM dash speakers. I'm using a new Kenwood DDX374BT head unit and a Rockville 10 inch powered sub. No amp on the Morels. The Maximos required little adjustment with the 10 band tuner of the Kenwood. I'm still tweaking the crossover points. I am pleased with the overall sound of the Maximo 6. Clear lower end and mid (I am using the sub below 100 Hz). Crisp highs with good separation. Pictures show front and rear tweeters mounted in the door panels. So are the Morels worth their price and name? They are the most expensive car speakers that I have ever purchase. I also did more prep work than I ever have on an install and still I am not greatly impressed.

I installed them in my MR2 Spyder using stock locations for the 6.5 speaker and gluing the twitter to the original bracket. I'm powering them with Vibe LightBox 2 amplifier (90x2 RMS) and the sound/detail is amazing! The twitters are very natural and not bright as many other brands (MB Quart, Focal and almost all of the cheap setups). There is also a surprising amount of mid bass for such small speakers. They are an incredible bargain, there is nothing in this price point that comes even close!

Pros: Sound amazing! Very natural and detailed twitter. A bargain.

Excellent clarity for the price

Mauirixxx from Kihei, HI on 4/7/2018

2001 Dodge Durango

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Despite Crutchfield's website telling me these wouldn't fit in my 2000 Durango, they fit perfectly without having to modify anything to make the woofer fit. I bought these to replace my aging Kenwood 3 way coaxials. While the Kenwoods definitely played louder they were very harsh at high volume. The Morels sound soooo much cleaner, and are easier on the ears, but man the clarity. Take for instance the song "Running down a dream" from Tom Petty, my old Kenwoods just couldn't handle that song well AT all, to the point where I would regulate turn DOWN the volume just to save my ears. AND I wasn't getting the clarity that I thought I was until I played the Morels side by side, installed (Morels in the right door, the old Kenwood on the left door). With Morels, I can actually hear the acoustic guitar getting strummed, AND I never once felt the need to drop the volume. I'm feeding both speakers 50w RMS, and like I said, my old Kenwoods are definitely louder, but the Morels sound better. Installation wise, Morel provides almost everything you need, save for speaker wire for the woofer, and the tweeter has maybe 3 feet of wire soldered onto it. I didn't have the premium sound system in my 2000 Dodge Durango, so I had to cut 2" holes for the tweeter to be flush mounted where the premium system would've mounted the factory tweeters in the door. The tweeter mounting system is simple and effective for the flush mount, but feels flimsy to me. Ei

Pros: High power handling Lots of tweeter mounting options Woofer actually fits with no modifications to the door ??

Cons: Flush mount system for the tweeter "feels" flimsy Tweeter wire soldered on (maybe not really a con) No speaker wire included for the woofer (again, maybe not really a con)

Great sounding components. Everything you need in one box. Some of the hardware for the woofers did not fit, but not a big issue. Tweeters are smooth and not at all harsh. Woofers have really tight bass and give much more bass then I thought they would. Great quality and great quality for the money. Installation wasn't bad at all.

Pros: Mounting options for tweeters. Woofers have good bass. Tweets are smooth, bright but not harsh. Crossovers are small and lightweight, easily mounted anywhere.

Cons: Mounting hardware for the woofers were to small in thickness and too long to use with the mounting rings. Not a con really, just make sure you have an assortment of screws.

My new go-to speaker brand!

2017 Honda Civic

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I replaced the factory front speakers in my 2017 Civic EX-T with these. Far more improvement than the cost would suggest. The highs aren't nearly as harsh as the factory tweeters and everything is soooo much clearer. As far as upgrades on a budget go, I really don't think you can do better than these. The sound profile is actually pretty close to my old Boston Acoustics Pro series, which is a very very good thing. Now I just have to decide on another pair of these or relegate these to the rear deck and get something further up the food chain in the Morel family.

Pros: Outstanding clarity and warm highs.

Cons: Light on the low-end.

More than fixed my sub-par stock sound system

Peter from Ipswich, MA on 2/6/2018

2016 Honda Accord LX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed these in my 2016 Honda Accord LX since, like many others, I found the sound system to be the only weak link in the car! I installed the Maximo 6 coaxials in the rear, and the Maximo 6 component speakers in the front, and I could not be happier with the result. Using the stock head unit and no amp, I am getting excellent bass response, and clear, warm, not at all harsh, treble. If you find that your stock Honda Accord system is sub-par, this will more than fix the issue for a very reasonable price. The muddy bass and lack of highs from the stock speakers are completely transformed into accurate bass down to 50Hz (sounds even lower), and warm, accurate highs. No need to replace the head unit, and by not replacing, you retain all of the other functions and features that are so convenient.

Pros: Excellent sound with no compromises for the price.

Cons: None whatsoever

Excellent factory replacement

Rob from KEAAU, HI on 1/30/2018

2013 Honda Crosstour

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed these as a factory replacement for the front doors in a 2013 Honda Crosstour. I did not use the supplied crossover as the factory radio already amplifies and splits signal between woofer and tweeter. I did use acoustical foam rings on the backside of the mounting adapter and around the woofer to isolate and direct sound waves into the cabin and applied SHCA 80mil sound deadener behind the speaker to help with back waves and applied deadener to other areas of the door that were resonating. Initial impressions are clarity and dynamics are much improved. Bass response over stock is much improved as dynamics are improved the muddiness is gone. The stereotypical misconception that you lose bass output going to aftermarket speakers is mainly due to improper install and the fact you hear less distortion. Most people translate this distortion as being louder. The tweeters play much higher and clearer than factory and provide the sparkle and depth the stocks totally missed. Overall much improved sound, so much so that the rear speakers sound like total crap and I just ordered another set of Morel Maximo coaxial' s to replace them.

Pros: SQ, dynamics, clarity, very low distortion

Cons: odd tweeter mounting options and miss matched length screws, I had to trim excess length off the screws to prevent tweeter mount from hitting door sheet metal

Best component set I've had so far - very satisfied

Tim from Minneapolis, MN on 1/24/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Decided to give these a shot since they are receiving awesome reviews, are at a great price point, and fit perfectly in my 2005 Scion xB. I also like that the passive crossovers are not attached to the woofers (other speakers at this price point, such as the Alpine SPS-610C, have passive crossovers attached to the woofer near the terminals). This way I was able to run these in an active 3-way set up off my Pioneer DEH-S6010BS. I have also wanted to try Morel speakers for quite some time now. I have had experience with JL, Alpine, Pioneer, Kicker, Diamond, Focal, and many other brands, but not Morel so I was excited to give these a shot. I am very pleased with these speakers. They are very smooth and responsive, even with the fairly low power (44 watts RMS to each set; 22 watts RMS to each tweeter and 22 watts RMS to each woofer since I'm running them active). The highs are very crisp and took me a bit of time to get them properly tuned to my liking - mainly due to limitations with the headunit's EQ. I currently have the HPF for my tweeters set to 3.15khz at a -18db slope, the LPF for my woofers set to 3.15khz with a -18db slope and the HPF for my woofers set at 40hz with a -18db slope. This set has a very rich and full response for most music I listen to, but I can't wait to pair these up with a subwoofer to fill in the 20hz - 40hz range and complete the 3-way setup.

Pros:

Cons:

I am an audiophile, I had many cars with audio system installed but nothing sound more spectacular like this Morel Maximo speakers, for a long time I had a great interest in trying Morel products and I have no complains, this are an great brand from the guys of Iran, the quality is superb and beyond the normal. I has installed a Morel Maximo 6 1/2" component speakers in front a Morel Maximo 6x9s in the rear of my Nissan Sentra 2017 connected to a Pioneer GM-D8601 and Pioneer GM-D8604 amps to the factory radio using a Clarion EQS-755 preamp, and a Kicker 43CWR122 subwoofer, the sound is out of this world, very clean and natural sound without distortion. I only use this Morel as vocals, all the lows frequencies comes from the subwoofer. LOVE these speakers.

Pros: Well made, natural sound, clean crisp highs and good mid bass.

Cons: I think that the included crossovers filter the tweeters too low, but its OK.

Wow - I initially installed a component set of Focal's (made in France version) which I found to be somewhat muffled and non-responsive. Eventually, one of the tweeters started to crackle (broken voicecoil). Based upon the advice of David here at Crutchfield, I purchased these to replace the Focal's. Wow - what a difference. The tweeters on these are far more responsive and clearer. The crossovers are straightforward and better matched to my JL amp. Midrange is perfect. I couldn't be happier.

Pros: Clearer tweeters. Handle high powered JL amp. Work well with my Kicker Hideaway sub

Cons: Had to modify dome tweeter design to fit in dash. IMO - these speakers need an amp.

In all honesty initially i thought these speakers were just ok, i actually took them out after installing them because they didnt sound as good as i thought they should. Im running a pioneer 80prs hu with a alpine mrv-f300 amp. After switching the headunit to active 3 way net work mode my alpine spg 17s sounded way better so i decided to try the Morels one last time. Boyyyyy i was blown away, i literally sat in my car for over 2 hours listening to music on my ipod, these speakers are insane. They need atleast 75 watts rms going them for great sound, and if u can go 3 way active.

Pros: Everything

Not very good speakers, This set does not produce the vocals. only the high and low sounds. I have to install the woofers from this set on the back doors and the Morel Maximo Ultra 602 Coax 6-3/4" 2-way Speakers. on the front doors. The tweeter that came with the Morel Maximo 6 I did install where were the originals. Also the crossover that came with this set is very cheap. After I did this modification the sound is nice. I am going to install small amp. the Alpine KTP-445U

Pros: The tweeter produce nice sound

Cons: This set does not produce the voices. only the high and low sounds but not midrange.

These speakers sound amazing and were easy to install in a 2015 F150. I was looking at Focal and other brands and decided to go with these based of other reviews here. Thanks everyone I agree these 6.5 are great for the money do it!!!

Pros: Price for sound quality cannot be beat. These things have great midbass as well. I probably would not of added a subwoofer if I heard these first.

Cons: Can't think of any for me but if you have to surface mount the tweeters the enclosure is ugly.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and installed 2 sets of these speakers in my vehicle. 1 Set in the dash and 1 set in the soundbar, and they sound great. For this price, I don't think that you can get a better sounding speaker dollar for dollar. The speakers are super clear and provide a decent amount of mid-range audio. The crossover is small and easy to hide, I put the crossover in the soundbar with the mid-range woofer, and for the dash speaker, I placed them just above the kick panels. I am an audiophile, some brands that I typically use are Focal, Jl, B&W, and Definitive Technology. Trust these speakers are worth it! I am using an Alpine I207-WRA stereo, with an Alpine PDX 4 channel amp to drive these speakers. If you want clear great sounding speakers at a clearance price since they have new models coming out I would buy these! I will post some pictures of the soundbar install and you can see where I mounted the crossover. I made a new tweeter mount tracing the factory tweeter on a piece of abs plastic and cutting it with a jigsaw for the dash tweeters to keep a factory look and for the soundbar.

Pros: Clear sound, a small crossover, and PRICE!!

Cons: Crossover cannot be attenuated.

Nice replacements for a pair I previously bought

Rey from Mountain View, CA on 10/24/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was excited to try these pair of Morel's in my car as replacements for a pair of Rockford Fosgate's that lacked punch and was so overbearing with the highs- the tweeters just seem way to high and hurt the ears. I like the sound of the mid-bass that these speakers produce and they have much more kick than the previous speakers I just mentioned. What I found more important was that the high's are very soft and more pleasing to the ear. It doesn't some like someone is screaming at you. This is while all my settings on my headunit are centered (no need to compensate like what I did with the Rockford's). So far the sound is great with different types of music across the board (bassy hip hop, classic rock, modern, radio) all sounds great. Try these speakers- the quality looks great and the built is simple but effective.

Pros: Nice bass, the highs are more easier on the ears and not too annoyingly high Easy to install Great quality

Cons: Connectors for speaker wires seem flimsy- be careful when plugging in the speaker connectors

Initially had the Maximo 6x9 components, but because of the location of the speakers low in the door vocals sounded weird. And I keep forgetting that I'm just not a fan of the bass sound that 6x9s put out. The components sound much better, mainly due to the tweeters now being in the stock A-pillar location I think. Running them off of the stock head unit without amplification so they're clear and sound natural to me, but I can't speak for how they'd sound amplified. Marked them 4 stars because I do get some weird static from the tweeters when playing music that has a lot of range, like Pink Martini and Adele. I'm no audio expert so my WAG would be maybe the included crossovers are filtering the tweeters too low? For the price, still happy.

I bought these based on the reviews. Like another reviewer, I wasn't impressed when I unpacked them but I went ahead with the install. After the install I was not impressed UNTIL I got the crossover frequencies set and did some tuning with a 13 band EQ. Now I love them. I think the highs compare to a set of Type R's I previously owned but I think the bass is much tighter, more solid and clean. Great speakers once tuned. One more thing, these are being powered by an MB Quart MA1 440.4 also purchased from Crutchfield.

Best Purchase I've Made

Omar from Long Beach, CA on 9/7/2017

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this set of components to replace the door speakers in my 2016 Silverado regular cab. I installed sound deadening material in the space behind the woofer and also on the area around the woofer mount on the front panel. Placed the tweeter on the sail panels in the door using the slightly angled mount to have the tweeter facing the driver and passenger to avoid reflections. Overall the install was pretty easy especially with the use of the instructions given by crutchfield. The sound quality of these Morel's was very impressive. The first thing I noticed was how the Morel tweeters disappeared in location and created a nice open sound stage. Not long after the initial listen I went through and unplugged the other stock speakers allowing the Morel's to take over. I initially feared that I would be underpowering these speakers with the stock headunit power only but they seem to be handling themselves quite well. The mids on this set are very tight, and clean. Every genre of music that I have played through them has not disappointed. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a tight natural sounding soundstage. Nothing about them feels like a budget speaker, if you want to try out the world of components these are a great start.

Pros: Affordable Components Natural Sounding Tweeter Tight mid-bass from the woofer Efficient for use as direct replacements without an amp

Cons: None

Outstanding speakers! Never heard of Morel before. I have always been a fan of Polk Audio speakers but based on reviews here I thought I'd try these Morels. I installed these in my 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider doors and they fit almost perfectly. Just a minor trim using Dremmel tool on one of the speaker mounts. I'm really amazed on how good these things sound. Amazing clarity. Note that these speakers are small so you will need a good subwoofer for a very well rounded sound.

Installed these in a 2017 Jeep Wrangler. The woofers fit fine, no adapter needed. I gutted the stock upper dash speaker and used a hot glue gun to attach the tweeters to it. Worked fine. Wanted to keep factory wiring as much as possible so I did have to use their connector and cut off the terminal ends and attach that to the crossover. SO I basically used the adapter to go out of the front pod and then had to come back in the pod with a wire from the crossover back to the woofer. Sound is great. I really would give these 4.5 stars if I could. I still need to get things dialed in but I am very impressed with the outcome.

Replaced a set of OEM components with the Maximos. These are phenomenal speakers worth well more than they sell for! Powering with 80 watts from a Zapco amp I initially ran them full range and they produce rich accurate base, balanced vocals and accurate and airy highs. They have great reproduction with all types of music bringing out subtle details I couldn't hear before. And they do what a speaker should: disappear and let the music play as intended. Have them paired back with my sub running them electronically crossed over at 50 Hz and I couldn't be happier. Match these with quality components and add in Crutchfield's world class customer service and you can't go wrong!

Installed these on my 2014 xB. This is my first time installing component speakers. I can say its easy. Crutchfield gives me all the instructions step by step. These speakers are amazing. They Sound warm and have a lot of bass over my factory speakers. They come with all the screws and nuts that you need for mounting the tweeters and crossovers. Awesome.

These components are night and day compared to the factory speakers. The music comes alive wether you listen to acoustic or electronic music, these are well rounded speakers that can handle all types of music.

Pros: Sound is amazing!

Cons: None

I have ran high end car audio in all my cars , and this is the best set I have ran especially considering this is morel entry level . I have ran Boston alpine fosgate Polk alpine type r jl c2 650

Pros: Very smooth sounding tweeter does not fatigue ears at higher volume or require a lot of tuning . Has great mids best budget component set on the market . I even like these over some 400 pair of speakers I had .

Cons: None especially for the price

Really Enjoy These

Scott from Eugene, OR on 7/18/2016

2007 Honda CRV LX

Nothing more to say than these are probably the best sounding speakers at this price point. I spent a lot of time listening to other speakers, but found that these offered the best frequency response over their advertised range. My original amp had 40W going to each speaker, and I wasn't happy. I upgraded to 75W / speaker and they sound really great. Considering upgrading my 10 year old Infinity sub to Morel as well.

Pros: -excellent sound quality

Cons: -difficult mounting the tweeters in the CRV, finally used 3M mounting tape -weren't offered at Crutchfield when I purchased them

Features

Woofer Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers, including Morel, call this size woofer a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size woofer as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeter can be surface or flush mounted using the included adapters. The large surface mount housing also uses the oval flush mount housing and angles the tweeters at approximately 45°. The small surface mounting housing angles the tweeters at approximately 20°.

Blew 3 woofers with 85W each of Alpine. Might have been clipping them. Going to be more careful. Crutchfield replaced a set and I'm buying a second set because Crutchfield is great with customer service and is sending me another set of replacements free. They do sound good. [ John  May 26, 2018 ]

best speakers I ever listen,, [ Melvin  Nov 16, 2017 ]
A
Number 1 deciding factor = PRICE per performance. #2 factor = Warm highs from the tweeter as per the other reviews. The Pioneers that came with the car when I got it (pre-owned), the highs are waaaaay too bright and hurt my ears. I have to change the treble from listening between Phantogram and French Montana's Pop-it :-P [ Thomas  Oct 30, 2017 ]

Liked the price and tweeter angle mounts [ Eric  Aug 19, 2017 ]

A
Just ordered 2 more pairs. These speakers, if installed correctly with a nice covering of dynomat on the inside of the doors will make you smile! Because they are so efficient they sound good with head unit power, but trust me you'll want more. [ Lana  Jun 27, 2017 ]

i hear them and I think I like that the mids can deliver a richer bass along with the highs [ Yaphet B.  Mar 21, 2017 ]

I've used Morel products before and like their stuff. Great price. [ William  Nov 09, 2016 ]

Speakers got good reviews for sounding "warm" and competing with sets that cost $100+ more. [ SV650noob  Oct 10, 2016 ]

Looking for the mellow but powerful sound. Morel has the rep for not being harsh with the highs and strong with the mids. [ Paul  Jun 01, 2016 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
