The Morel driving experience
The Morel driving experience
Prepare to do more driving. Once you install Morel Virtus speakers in your car, you'll have a hard time resisting getting in the driver's seat and cranking the volume. Despite the sonic limitations posed by the automotive environment, Morel's component speakers soar. Every bit of that excellence is due to their passion for sound and their insistence that every Virtus model be made by hand and tested to meet their premium standards.
This crossover network ensures a smooth transition between woofer, midrange, and tweeter.
3-way detail at any volume
The Virtus 503 5-1/4" 3-way component speaker system adds a CDM600 midrange driver for a fuller, more palpable response and enhanced sonic detail. 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.
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 120 watts RMS, so you'll want to use an amplifier to get maximum performance at high volume.

Morel Virtus 503 reviews
I have had these installed in the front doors of my truck for about two months. They are being driven by a 1,000 dollar amp. These speakers are way to bright for me. They are 80% treble and 20% mid range. I did not expect big bass from a speaker this size, but I did expect some mid range.The higher you turn up the volume the better they sound. With the subs turned up they will suffice, but I am disappointed.
