Not all drivers are created equal, and the visually inspiring Elate Carbon 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 achieves remarkable control and low distortion which translates to highly transparent and bass-rich sound reproduction.
Few speakers can match the midrange purity and rich bass performance of the Elate Carbon Pro woofers.
CARBON FIBER CONE - Derived from the drivers of our 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.
EVC MOTOR - Morel speakers with EVC™ technology utilize voice coils that are up to three times larger than those used in conventional loudspeakers. The EVC™ design moves the magnetic drive system within the voice coil, eliminating stray magnetic flux by effectively directing all the magnetic energy to the voice coil. The result is an ultra-efficient and powerful design, that is highly compact with efficient heat dissipation and reduced cone breakup for lower distortion.
HEXATECH™ ALUMINIUM VOICE COIL - Made from 100% aluminum 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.
