Experience with Morel Speakers

I'm looking at upgrading my system and currently looking at speakers. I have an 06' G35 coupe and plan to add a 10" sub in the back and do a cleansweep or something like that with the stock head unit. I would consider myself an audiophile (I run a paradigm (monitor series for now) system at home with a Def. Tech supercube sub for reference). I have heard some Morel speakers recently and found even the lower to midend speakers quite good. Wondering if anyone has any opinions/experience on these speakers as compared to JL C5s or any other suggestions.

How are the JL C5s? I apologize for posting a question in lieu of your question

The reason I ask is because I just ordered the C5 650s without actually hearing them...what can I expect when I install them?

Morel is muy bueno. I got mine from Madisound, had some 8" midbasses in my doors for a bit, they were sick.

I have looked into Seas Lotus a little. Who actually sells them, and is it possible to get a set for under $1k? I'm looking more in the $500/pair range. I would want to hear these also.

I'd love to hear yours, unfortunately I'm all the way on the other side of the country in CT. I may be going to CA for work (I work for a Fuel Cell company and CA likes them a lot), but not anytime in the near distant future. I'm not completely opposed to more expensive components, but I would really need to hear them to determine if could justify the price. Is there a hifi brand you would consider a really good value for the money. I found that most people say this about Paradigm in the home hifi world (over say B&W) which is why I went with the setup I have now. Is there anything in this category for car audio?

Again, I apologize for being a noob to the car audio scene, all my experience is in home audio, but any advice or help is really appreciated. I know all the same principles should apply, but I don't really know the brands very well.

No Apologies are needed. Your stepping into a whole new world. For the Money Hertz is pretty good. DLS is also Very good. When i first mapped out my system I was going to go with DLS Ultimate Irridium 6.3. Then I was going to go with the SEAS LOTUS Performance. After Listening and Much thought. I spent the Extra $ and went with the SEAS LOTUS Reference. The Mid Bass output is AMAZING IASCA SQ judges are Always commenting about this. Well Good Luck and welcome to ICE!

These are a few great speakers in no particular order:

Dynaudio
Morel
SEAS Lotus
DLS
hybrid audio

Remember it is all about the install!!

You must listen and make your own decision! I run a dynaudio and morel combo myself.

Carlos! What's up man?! I still have your kickpod I need to get back to you, haven't been to any of the DIYMA meets in a while.

To the OP: I'd recommend to check out the Audison Bit 1 if you want to get into tuning. I have heard there have been some issues with it, but those may have been worked out already. The DIYMA forum is the perfect place to go for more info.

Thank-you guys for some great ideas to start with. Now I need to find somewhere I can hear these speakers to judge for myself what is most pleasing to my ears, since at the end of the day that's what matters the most. Do you feel listening to speakers in a shop allows for good comparisons as to which speakers I will like more installed in my car? Obviously the acoustics will differ substantially. Also, what is you feeling about mixing brands between front/rear/sub? I'm assuming some of you guys compete. I'm not really going that direction, just an audiophile that wants my system to sound good. One more question, what is ICE?
