About the Morel Ultimo Titanium 804
Winner of the 2014-15 EISA best subwoofer of the year award, the Ultimo Titanium subwoofer exemplifies Morel's dedication to engineering and innovation in pursuit of musical excellence. The Ultimo Titanium 804 8" sub features a huge 5.1" external voice coil wound from thick Hexatech™ aluminum wire on a titanium former, all designed to improve the dynamics of this driver for more accurate response. The highly efficient double ferrite magnet motor maximizes efficiency, while a unique spider/surround design ensures flat response even at the highest output levels.
This sub's composite cone gives you the best of both worlds – the musicality of paper with the durability of carbon fiber. Housed in a heavy-duty stamped steel basket, this cone achieves the rigidity you need for strong bass output while retaining a warm, natural sound. Handling up to 800 watts RMS, this Ultimo Titanium delivers high-fidelity bass that stays true even when you push your system hard. The European Imaging & Sound Association (EISA) panel summed it up best: “Well-suited for compact boxes, this is one of the best subwoofers available, offering a combination of power and sound quality rarely seen in a single product.”
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 600 and 1200 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Morel Ultimo Titanium 804 reviews
The only reason this thing gets more than 1 is because it does make good bass. Not amazing, but good. Anyway, I had one for a couple of months before it gave out on me. For no apparent reason, it just stopped working. I sent it back, and Crutchfield was Very good about it - they sent me a new one before I'd return mine, so I could send the old one back in the box that the new one arrived in. But, it was to no prevail. Less than 10 days after hooking this new one in it blew again. These things are not as durable as that power handling rating would suggest. At all.
Pros: Good Bass. Terrific frequency response range.
Cons: Expensive, not worth the money. Broke twice under better than normal care.

Sealed Box: Morel recommends sealed enclosure sizes from 6.5 liters (0.23 ft³) to 40 liters (1.41 ft³). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable for all types of music.
Ported Box: Morel recommends ported enclosure sizes from 10 liters (0.35 ft³) to 30 liters (1.06 ft³), with an optimum volume of 10 liters (0.35 ft³). Two ported enclosure volume response curves are listed in the manual; 15 liters (0.53 ft³) with one 2" diameter x 17.74" long port and 25 liters (0.88 ft³) with one 2" diameter x 9.4" long port. Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed, so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low frequency output.
