About the Morel Virtus 603
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 603 6-1/2" 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 140 watts RMS, so you'll want to use an amplifier to get maximum performance at high volume.
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.

Morel Virtus 603 reviews
Such a huge upgrade from my old speakers. I have a Range Rover Spot that had a horrible system. But now I will be bobbing my head up and down more often. Nice sound. Good lows. Love it
Pros: Clean sound
Cons: May be a little bright at time on some tracks

can not really be put into words how off the charts they sound. i have a 97 lincoln mark 8 lsc. it came with factory jbl separates. with a lil modification the 6x8;s were replaced with the 6,75 woofers.. the mids went into the holes for the 3 inch factory tweets and had the tweets surface mounted. pushing them is jl audio hd 600-4. with a jl hd 1200 pushing a pair of infinite baffle jl ib5 12's. when i went to pick up car i asked the manager i have been dealing with for over 20 years how it sounded and all he did was smile. i expected great sound as i have 2 other cars with morels in them...but this was way over the top. from darkside of the moon to ride the lightning to taylor swift they hold up and thew clarity is unmatched i only have about 20 hrs on them so not fully broke in yet but already are the top speakers on the market in this price range. match them with a bullet proof amp that can really push them and the sky is your limit
Pros: unmatched sound quality

I was able to squeeze the midrange and tweeter on the door where the factory midrange would be. Woofers are in factory location and produce very good bass. A lot of woofers I've tried don't do well in doors, they flip back and forth, but weak output. These woofer do a good job. The crossovers are done well too, all 3 speakers blend well together. I flush mounted my tweeter for a better look, but aiming tweeters did sound a bit better.
Pros: Components are well matched. Smooth and mellow, but very detailed.
Cons: More than I wanted to spend, but saves me the pain and suffering of trying different pieces and reworking crossovers

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.

|Flush Mount||Large Surface Mount||Small Surface Mount|
|Mounting Depth||0.875"||screw depth||screw depth|
Crossover: The outboard crossovers have screw terminal inputs and outputs (0.275" wide). A jumper inside each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output level; choose -2 dB, 0 dB, or +2 dB.

The tweeters' high pass crossover is 6 dB/octave at 2.2 kHz.
