Not all drivers are created equal, and the visually inspiring Morel Elate Carbon MW5 - 5.25 inch woofers were developed with next-level performance in mind. These new drivers get their Carbon moniker from their triple-layer cones from which they are derived, consisting of two layers of carbon fiber sandwiching a Rohacell foam core.
These proprietary cones were developed to give them incredible stiffness, high damping and light weight—the trifecta for cone performance.
Paired with a large 3-inch diameter Hexatech aluminum voice coil, titanium former, and Morel’s EVC motor technology, the Elate Carbon MW5 achieves remarkable control and low distortion which translates to highly transparent and bass-rich sound reproduction.
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 fibre 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 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.
