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 5 component speaker system uses a treated paper 5-1/4" composite woofer cone and 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 80 watts RMS, so you'll get the best performance powering these 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.

I purchased the Maximo coaxle for my rear speakers and these components for the front. (2012 F150). These speakers are as awesome as the rear speakers i reviewed. They were easy to install and the sound is very crisp, accurate at all volume settings. I paired these with the AudioControl LC4-800. For the budget conscious buyer that still wants quality. Merel is no joke. My fronts, rears and subs are all Morel and i can't be happier. Morel mostly has quite expensive drivers so i figured that their budget drivers will have some of the technology as the expensive one's and i was right and what a pay off. They're worth it..

Pros: Great quality for the price

Cons: Non yet

These speakers really allow the music to separate. I am so impressed with the quality sound difference. Instead of everything coming from below and behind the seat, now the music sparkles with clarity and depth. I like that the tweeters (design) allow you various ways to mount. I certainly got more than I expected with this purchase! Thanks to all at Crutchfield! You've been good to me for many years.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased these to upgrade a set up Alpine 6 1/2" components I had installed in my doors. I was hesitant at first, since I was actually down sizing. But, after installing these with included adapters that Crutchfield sent me, these sound a lot better. Vocals, warm tone, no harshness in the higher frequencies, with included tweeters. I then added Stinger's Roadkill foam rings(RFKR5) to seal the sound from speaker to door panel- and that made them stand out even more. With 45rms going to each side, they sing, and don't distort at higher volumes like previous set. Was able to also bring down my crossover slope settings in head unit to play lower frequencies. Very good investment.

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 will be required(refer to speaker photo with male speaker terminals showing)

Put these in my Alfa 4C. Had to make new mounting holes for the speaker but that was easy. Tweeter didn't fit in factor location. Slightly bigger but the mount fit to the door location well. Little bulky but points toward the driver/passenger.

Pros: Really clean sound and easy install.

Cons: - Need an external amp or speakers won't sound well - tweeter mount could be better for flat install

Brandon from Largo, FL on 5/3/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Only had these firing for 2 days now but so far so good.. The first pair I received did have a small slit in the rubber surround.. After I realized this Crutchfield immediately sent me a new one. not exactly sure how this happened but they fixed the problem ASAP.. I got these to fit into my 2010 Mazda 3 very easily.. I actually tried to get the M 6's to fit but they where just to big.. The M 5s fit great all I had to do was bend a small piece of metal inside my door to clear magnet space. THESE SOUND AMAZING. So so so good. I listen to rap and the mids are crystal clear, highs are crisp and NOT overbearing, and these lil puppies have some great midbass. I paired these with a sound ordinance amp ( crutch house brand ) that also seems to be doing well.. I thought I was going to be disappointed with a 5 inch speaker but man do these perform. cant imagine what the 6.5 sounds like.. it looked nearly twice as big when I had them

Pros: price, sound quality, mid bass

Cons: none here

Very good component set

Robert from KEAAU, HI on 1/30/2018

2013 Honda Crosstour

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

I installed these in the front doors of my 2010 Mazda 3s hatchback to replace a set of Kenwood Excelon component speakers. I am an SQ wannabe and these are running passive off an Alpine PDX-F4 getting signal from a Pioneer DEH-X9600bhs HPF at 80hz. These will fit in the front doors with some work to create clearance. I created custom ABS adapters using a 5.25" spacer ring screwed to a 5x7 adapter plate using epoxy to permanently bond the 2 pieces. I then applied SHCA 80mil deadener behind the woofer and to the adapter and around the speaker. Then I used acoustical foam to decouple the adapter from the door and another ring around the speaker to direct sound into the cabin. Overall impressions is that they have much less distortion than the set they replaced especially in the higher range and have lower frequency response. These will surprisingly play effectively down to 60hz even though in my install there is no need. Imaging is more centered and details are coming through songs that I have not noticed before which was the ultimate goal. I love these so much I purchased a set of the Morel Maximo coaxial speakers to replace the rear door speakers because these make those sound so bad now all I can hear is the distortion coming from the rears!

Pros: SQ, dynamics, frequency response, clarity, very low distortion

Cons: odd tweeter mounts, not a real con but they will make other speakers sound so bad you will need to replace them haha

Did a decent amount of research on what set of components would pair best with my JBL GTR 7535. Decided on these and they did not disappoint. Great highs and super crisp mids. I was blown away at all the details that I could not hear in songs through my stock speakers. Only gripe is that they don't fully fit in the 6x9 adapter plates that are included. I simply put some butyl rubber tape around any openings.

Pros: Beautiful highs and crisp mids

Cons:

excellent speakers

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

If your looking for screaming loud in your face speakers look else where. If you looking for warm pleasant sounding speakers then you can't go wrong with these. I have them in a Honda ridgeline for the front stage along with Maximo 6.5 coaxial for rear fill and a 10" primo. Using an audio control lc6.1200 for power. Set my gain at 20 volts to these speakers (100 watts). Crossed over at 110. I love these speakers the tweeters are the star of the show. Great detail not too bright actually have them boosted a little with the eq. Would suggest these to anyone looking for good sq at an affordable price. Can't comment on how they sound with just a head unit. Would imagine they need amplification to really shine.

Pros: great sound

Cons: I want morels in my other vehicle

Best 5 1/4 components at this price point that I've heard and I've been into car audio for 27 years. It's a no-brainer for sq on a budget. Don't expect ear piercing spl but they are clean!

Great sound

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these based on the Morel reputation. After I ordered them I got a little nervous when I looked back and saw how much less expensive these were than other sets by Morel. After hearing them I am pleased with my purchase, I suspect some of the cost cutting was done on cosmetics (these aren't the best looking speakers I've seen) but that is O.K. because you can't see them one they are mounted anyway. The sound quality is easily on par (at least) with other speakers I've heard in this price range. Really my only beef is that I had to make MDF plates to mount these in my doors, as the speaker was smaller than the hole in the adapter plates Crutchfield sent. I could have just as easily mounted the bigger woofers from the Maximo 6 set, I suspect Crutchfield says the Maximo 6 won't fit my car because they don't have adapters that would work.

Pros: Great smooth sound for a very reasonable price.

Cons: Now I want to try the more expensive Morel speakers in my wife's car.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I spent quite a bit of time planning my build. I had to weigh quality to budget. With the help of your Rep Carter i was able to narrow my scope and with the choice of scratch and dent option i was able to build a killer system on a reasonable budget. If you research enough you can find quality for a reasonable budget. Thanks Guys. Phil [ phil  Nov 14, 2018 ]

I'm hoping this will provide the quality bass I'm looking for. I don't want any of the punch-bass or overpowered. (I'm taking out a New Kenwood 10" sub that I purchased originally) I enjoy realistic sound and also hope the separate tweeters will add further distinction. [ Blaine  Nov 13, 2018 ]
