Morel Virtus 602 6-3/4" 2-Way Component Speakers

This crossover network ensures a smooth transition between woofer and tweeter.

Vivid detail at any volume

The Virtus 602 6-1/2" component speaker system is a solid choice in the Morel line. The paper composite woofer handles the lows, and Morel's External Voice Coil (EVC™) technology maximizes voice coil size in this woofer for better heat dispersion and efficient performance. Morel's MT120 soft dome silk tweeter contributes warm highs to the distinct Virtus sound, and the one-of-a-kind Acuflex™ compound that coats the tweeter helps damping to bring out the fine detail in your music. 

Crossover technology

Morel includes external MXR crossovers to deliver an ideal blend of the highs and lows for an incredible stereo image. Three levels of tweeter control let you dial in the sound to your car's environment. This system will handle up to 140 watts RMS, so you'll want to use an amplifier to get maximum performance at high levels.

Note: Morel describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

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 flush mount housing and angles the tweeters at approximately 45°. The small surface mounting housing angles the tweeters at approximately 20°.

Q
Why does it list these not fitting the front door of a 2014 chevy equinox? Seems these or even the maximo line would fit with the proper door adapter? Just curious because I've been looking at both models and interested in them thanks
christopher  Aug 03, 2022

A
According to our research file on the Equinox, those Morel speakers aren't a recommended fit for the front doors due to mounting depth restrictions in the door panels. There is only 2.134" of available depth in the front doors, and the woofer from the Morel Virtus 602 component system measures 2.45" deep.

Q
Thanks for any help. I would like to use a JL Audio XVI series, 5 channel DSP amp to power a set of these but they will only get 75 watts per side. It's a VERY high end - normal amp, BUT will the 75 watt per channel be enough to run these clean and full at medium / medium high volume. Quality is my goal, not nuclear volume. If 75 watt isn't quite enough i would have to run two amps to get 100-150 watt per channel for the Virtus 602. sooo, how much power is enough for a quality, considering a good quality amp ? thanks

Greetings Allen, and thank you for your question. More clean power is always going to relate to a better sounding speaker. 75 watt JL Audio power is extremely clean power, and will run the Virtus very well. I guess if you wanted a bit closer to the 130 watt rating, Audio Control makes a clean 5 channel with DSP as well. That one does at least 100 out the main channels.

Q
If I run 2 sets of these on civic hatchback, would the rockford tp1000-4AD be too much?
david  Dec 06, 2021

A
It could work, plenty of headroom. But be careful setting the gains on the Rockford, to not blow the tweeter. If you want to be on the safe side. I would go with less wattage, Something like 2 quantity of Morel MPS 4.400 bridged or any amplifier that will be at 200 watts for headroom or at the same rme rating as the Morel Virtus 602s (140 watts X 2)

Q
Best amp for running two sets of morel virtues 140 rms x4.?
tony  May 26, 2021

These speakers are power hungry and require at a minimum the full 140 watts per Chanel up to 200w per to fully enjoy the glorious sound they produce. I know they are rated at 140 rms; however, connected to my Audio Control 4. 800 @ 125 per, they were just beginning to shine. I'm running JL Audio XD800 bridged to 200 watts x 4. The most incredible sound and far better than the previous 125w per!

Morel Virtus & Up are Power Hungry, they Love Power, If your going passive & wouldn't mind using 2 Amps to power 2 component sets, then the Morel MPS 4.400 Bridged, would Send 200 Watts to the Virtus, giving Headroom & making the speakers perform their best. If you want to use 1 Amp, go passive & still have Great Sound, then the Audiocontrol LC 4.800 will do.

Q
How much of a difference in sound quality and volume will I notice if I install these without upgrading my factory amplifier?
tony  May 26, 2021
1 answer
A
More details about the vehicle's factory audio system is needed before that can be answered and we have advisors who can be reached by calling 1-800-324-9695 that will be happy to discuss this and give you an idea of the changes to the sound these speakers will give

Q
My amp is running 75w X 4 RMS...would this power these pretty well, or would I need a more powerful amp?
olatungi  Nov 12, 2017
1 answer
A
Given that the Morel Virtus 602 can handle up to 140 watts RMS, you may find they perform better with a higher powered amplifier than your 75 watts x 4 model. For more details on finding a suitable amplifier for your system, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!
