View Full Version : does morels in the front mean morels in the back?

just had a set of morel hybrids installed in the front doors yesterday. i am at work, so i dont have time to go into how unbelievable they sound and how I had no idea that SQ could actually be that good (despite playing 4 instruments). what i want to know is if i am correct in assuming that the correct thing to do (or at least the sensible thing to do) with my rear staging would be to stick with morels.

i was thinking about the pulse coaxials.

p.s. i will elaborate shortly about how ridiculous these speakers are. I will put it to you like this: I had never heard a high end component set before, plus i spent a hell of a lot of money to have them sealed extremely well in the mount (prob almost airtight, if not airtight). my goal is that by the time I get my next car in a year (Audi S4) I will be able to transfer everything from this car myself and do all the installation work myself.

Why ruin a great soundstage? Rears are totally unneeded (and IMO make things sound worse in many cases...and take massive amounts of time alignment to make sound decent) when you have a set of good components up front that are adequately amplified.

Unless you are going to feed the rears a dedicated rear surround sound signal from a surround processor, or add some kind of time delay for the rear, don't even bother with rear speakers... you will waste your money.

hey i like rear fill, i enjoy feeling like there is sound all around me not just from the front. everyone says "well at concerts the only sound is coming from right in front of you" well im not at a concert, im in my car and i dont really care which directed the music comes from as long as i can hear it loud and clear!

wacha gotta do is get some 50 dolla coaxes in the back, fade to the front and when you have people in the back seat fade back a lil. but those morels get nice and loud so the passengars shouldnt need any speakers back there.

what about just strictly a midbass driver in the back?

Generally, other than surround channels, any frequencies that CAN or COULD reproduce directional, stereo information, usually thought to be above about 80Hz (including midbass), should be kept up front... below 80 hz (subs) can be placed anywhere (such as in the trunk).
