Efficiency is a Morel trait, one that is also incorporated into the new Maximo bass/mid-range units. At the source is a new ultra-high-grade ferrite magnet that generates increased magnetic flux to motivate the large 1-inch voice coil, thereby increasing power handling and output. At the same time, the smaller yet more powerful magnet (35% smaller than standard ferrite magnets) affords the Maximo to be smaller in size, providing a shallow mounting depth for easy installation in tight places.
Maximo is the first in Morel's lineup to use a new proprietary coating called Acudamp. Acudamp is an incredibly lightweight polymer resin applied to the bass/mid-range cone to eliminate cone resonances largely responsible for distortion. This, along with the computer-optimized cone and suspension, results in clean, linear movement during low-frequency reproduction, increased bass dynamics, and natural mid-range response.
High frequencies are reproduced by a large-format 25-mm (1-inch) tweeter that employs Morel's External Voice Coil (EVC) technology and a powerful neodymium magnet. The tweeter utilizes a soft textile dome for a non-fatiguing response and that natural "sweet and warm" signature sound Morel is renowned for.
Bridging the speakers together, Maximo component speakers are paired with an external 12 dB crossover network built of high-grade film capacitors and large-gauge inductors to minimize distortion. A low crossover point enhances the overall music reproduction in the vehicle by providing exceptional height and breadth to the sound stage. The phase-aligned outboard network was designed so that it provides a natural transition between the woofer and tweeter, regardless of their location, for sonic performance you would only expect from a Morel product.
About the Maximo Series
Morel invested the same passion, engineering, and philosophy that earned its car audio speakers countless awards in the development of the Maximo line. As a result, Maximo inherits several of the company's innovative technologies.
Consisting of 2-way component systems and coaxial speakers, the Maximo Series is Morel's solution for those who enjoy a superb-sounding music system that can be easily installed into factory speaker locations and integrated with factory head unit power, or amplified, all at a great value.
With Morel's quality craftsmanship, the Maximo 2-way speakers deliver the powerful sound car audio enthusiasts seek but without the ear-fatiguing harshness found in similarly priced speakers.
Maximo Component Tweeter
The foundation for the Maximo tweeter is rooted with the same design principles as Morel's high-end tweeters. Each tweeter uses a proprietary-coated soft textile dome, External Voice Coil (EVC) technology, and a powerful neodymium magnet motor. The extended frequency response provides for a solid front stage and accurate imaging. And the tweeter installation kit further enhances the system's flexibility, offering four different mounting options.
- Soft Dome Design
The shape of the soft dome tweeter optimizes off-axis performance while minimizing distortion, increasing power handling and improving the overall tonal and dynamic, yet natural, response.
- 25-mm (1-inch) Voice Coil and Powerful Neodymium Motor
The large-format voice coil further improves power handling and efficiency while providing superb control for the utmost sonic detail.
- External Voice Coil Technology (EVC)
Larger than in conventional tweeters, the 1-inch voice coil enables detailed sound reproduction regardless of output level.
- Wide Dispersion
The carefully designed, built-in phase-guide helps control the dispersion pattern for superb off-axis response that minimizes high-frequency losses.
- Tweeter Installation Kit
Four different tweeter mounting options enhance system installation flexibility for easy integration into your vehicle.
Efficiency, compact size, and versatile mounting are all virtues of the Maximo bass/mid-range units.
Maximo Bass/Mid-range Unit
Efficiency, compact size, and versatile mounting are all virtues of the Maximo bass/mid-range units. At the source is an ultra-high-grade ferrite magnet that allows the design to be as much as 35% smaller than standard ferrite-driven motors. This enabled Maximo engineers to build a woofer with a shallow mounting depth for easy installation in tight places.
Sound reproduction is natural and virtually distortion free thanks to Morel's proprietary Acudamp-coated paper cones. The result is an efficient 5.25-inch woofer that performs and sounds bigger than it is.
- Compact Design and Versatile Basket
A shallow mounting depth and versatile mounting options allow Maximo to fit in most vehicles without modification.
- 25MM (1") Voice Coil
Larger voice coil provides excellent power handling and dynamic low-frequency response.
- Acudamp-Coated Paper Cone
Eliminates cone distortion for higher power handling while enhancing weather protection.
- Butyl Rubber Surround
FEA computer-designed surround that remains completely linear for the ultimate speaker cone control. Butyl is also an ideal surround material that is extremely durable to promote longevity.
- Computer-Optimized Cone
Results in clean, linear movement during low-frequency reproduction, delivering increased bass dynamics.
Maximo 2-way Crossover
The outboard crossover network is built using high-grade components commonly found in systems priced twice as much. Featuring film capacitors and large-gauge inductors in their 12 dB filters, power handling is no longer limited by distortion-inducing crossover components. The network's compact dimensions mean that it will fit in locations that most standard crossover cases will not, making installation a breeze.
- High-grade Film Capacitors and Large-Gauge Inductors
Overbuilt for this level speaker system, these high-quality components keep crossover distortion and power absorption to an absolute minimum.
- Phase-Optimized Design
Naturally bridges the woofer and tweeter, regardless of their location, for a cohesive sonic performance.
- Small Size
Allows crossover to be mounted behind door panels, kick panels, or in the dash--virtually anywhere.

Morel has been at the forefront of loudspeaker technology since the upstart of the company in 1975. Inspired by his love of music, founder Meir Mordechai set out to create the perfect loudspeaker. His lifelong quest has resulted in successive generations of speakers that consistently set new standards for superb sound quality. In fact, the Morel brand has become an annual recipient of "Best of" and "Innovation" awards for sound reproduction worldwide.
Loudspeakers are like musical instruments. While there are many producers of musical instruments of all kinds, only a handful succeed in making the sound that captures the essence and magic of music. Morel's in house design, R&D, and manufacturing enable the company to produce loudspeakers that deliver that magical feeling as natural and transparent as the finest instruments themselves.
To reach this zenith in audio reproduction, the human touch is an absolute necessity. Each Morel product is assembled by hand and extensively tested, undergoing seven different quality tests to ensure that it meets the highest standards.
Morel has dedicated years of R&D to developing unique technologies that overcome the limitations of car audio and offer exceptional performance--from our Maximo line to our flagship Supremo products. The mark of a good speaker is its ability to transform recordings into "live" performances. Morel's car audio systems hit the mark every time.
