I appreciate the advice. I will be runing a McIntosh MCC406M - 6 channels (50wx4 and 100wx2)Re:Best sound components
The Dynaudio and Morels have always been a favorite of mine. There were two things that You said made me lean this way. Tight bass/mid bass and smooth highs.
The morels and dynes have very smooth roll offs from low,mid and tweet. So when you are trying to blend/tune/setup they are much more forgiving to the car enviroment. You don't have to have massive crossover cliffs that avoid major peaks or drops in speaker response. I have not heard a smoother tweeter and mid than the morels with no loss of detail. This also comes in handy when mounting the tweeter and mid up higher (at the a pillars or dash or higher on the doors) because you are getting alot of reflection off of the glass which intensifies the higher frequencies.
There mid bass sections are very strong. Giving you that "tight snap drum beat" allowing you to cross over the sub lower with out pulling your image to the rear. They have massive motor structures and have sets that are designed for the car environment. I have not seen any mid/bass driver extend so low with as much acuracy and authority that are still smooth enough on the higher end to blend with a dome midrange (ie three way) or extend high and smooth enough to blend well with a tweeter ie. 2way as the new morels.
Ease of tuning yes, if you have the skills, amplifiers, and crossover an active system is the way to go you can tweak and tune till your heart and ears are content. I know that morels higher end componets have multiple wiring options built into there passive crossovers so that you can biamp the speakers.
Anyway not to sound like a sales ad just sounded like a good fit.
I have used the scans speak and vita drivers on in home projects and they are quality products. The morels and dyns have sets now been designed for the car environment ie. different glues design parameters etc. I have no doubt that the home driver designs have produced fantastic sound and have worked for some across the country (I was using Dynaudio home project drivers in cars 22 years ago) but in my area with the more extreme heat and temp fluctuations in the car I have seen them fail with time.
The legs question the major advantage to the three way is allowing you to get your image up past obstruction level and to create a better image ie. being at the concert. The morels offer a dome midrange (ie. voices etc) and tweeters (ie. upper end of female voices, cymbals, harmonics etc.) the higher the freq. the shorter the wavelength and are more easily absorbed by fabric etc. they also loses energy quickly through the atmosphere. So the closer to ear level the better.
I have also used the Focals with good success. Depending on amp and location.
What amp will you be using with them?
Anyway my 2 cents. New to the forum but not audio.
I just read what you wrote 30 seconds after I bought some HAT Legatia's Pro L1 tweets (used for 200$).
