The new flagship Morel Ultimo Ti 12 Subwoofer further improves the extraordinary combination of musicality and high power handling the original Ultimo subwoofers were known for.
While most subwoofers are little more than high-output bass makers, the Ultimo series was engineered with a synergy of tight, controlled musicality and life-like deep bass reproduction with no equal for delivering the ultimate bass experience.
Ultimo Titanium subwoofers are engineered to set a new standard in subwoofer technology and bass performance, equipped with Morel’s most advanced, cutting–edge technology derived from the company’s HiFi bass drivers.
At the heart of the new subwoofers is Morel’s titanium voice coil former. Exceptionally stiff and lightweight, the titanium improves the dynamics of the driver for even quicker transient response, with lower distortion and increased power handling.
Carbon Fibre Cone
Derived from the drivers of Morel's award-winning fat lady speaker system, this cone design is comprised of two exterior carbon fiber skins sandwiching a layer of Rohacell, a high strength, featherweight foam. The combination forms a cone that is light, strong and properly damped for naturally uncolored audio reproduction.
Morel’s double drive system generates more magnetic energy than a single magnet of similar size, increasing efficiency and the dynamic range. The position of the secondary magnet fixed above the top plate in the motor is the key in controlling stray magnetic flux, thus generating a more focussed magnetic field while also contributing to the “shielded” characteristic of our speakers.
Morel speakers with EVC™ technology utilise voice coils that are up to three times larger than those used in conventional loudspeakers, enabling improved heat dissipation, power handling and linearity. The EVC™ design moves the magnetic motor system to within the voice coil, eliminating stray magnetic flux by effectively directing all the magnetic energy to the voice coil. The EVC architecture is over 90% more efficient than conventional design, magnetically shielded, and highly compact.
Hexatech Aluminium Voice Coil
Made from 100% aluminium wire shaped like a honeycomb, the Hexatech™ voice coil reduces air gaps in the coil windings, thereby increasing efficiency by up to 20%. Being lightweight, Hexatech™ voice coils are largely responsible for the extraordinary fast transient response Morel drive units are known for.
Titanium Voice Coil Former
Titanium bobbin (VC body) is known for its high rigidity, light weight, heat transfer and conductive characteristics. Morel's R&D team was able to decrease eddy currents inside the magnetic gap, improve heat dissipation considerably, lower distortion and improve power handling. Despite the tremendous cost and new sophisticated manufacturing processes, it delivers a tonally balanced, highly accurate, and exceptionally fast transient transducer.
Uses an open design that is aerodynamically efficient, allowing air and sound waves to flow uniformly and smoothly. Its geometric shape also eliminates interference with the woofer’s moving components, enabling the use of a low-profile spider for greater support and stability.
