The new Virtus series offer Morel’s core technological virtues at an exceptional value. The Virtus series embodies Morel’s technological advancements featuring the Unified woofer chassis—a compact design with a large 2.1″ Voice Coil that allows it to fit in the size constraints of today’s cars, an MT120 Acuflex™ Coated 1.1″ soft dome Tweeter and the MXR crossover technology for total component integration of the carefully refined acoustic parameters, of the tweeter, midrange, and woofer. This culmination of design and technology allows Virtus to bring emotion to music with a balance of rich, natural midrange, high-frequency detail, and vibrant bass.
C.A.R FILTER - In most automotive applications, speakers are installed in a virtual free-air environment, such as a door, which provides minimal acoustic loading. The C.A.R. Filter™ improves the acoustic loading by controlling airflow within the driver, mimicking the effects of a cabinet while improving power handling by 30%. This provides greater control over the cone movement for improved bass dynamics.
DMM MOTOR - 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.
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.
HANDCRAFTED ACUFLEX SOFT DOME - A specially engineered damping compound applied to the soft domes of specific Morel tweeters and midranges. The combination of these materials creates a diaphragm that exhibits controlled canceling break-up (accurate–flexing), meaning each break-up mode is counteracted by another in the opposite direction. This cancellation of break-up modes leaves nothing but the pure, natural sound Morel tweeters and midrange are famous for.
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.
PAPER CONE - In use since the first loudspeakers, the paper continues to be an exceptional material of choice. Morel’s latest paper composite cones are ultra-lightweight, making them an exceptional pairing for drivers using smaller motors and voice coils.
