    Just got a set of Morel Maximos, completely insane!

    150 watts going to them, combined with an old school RE XXX. I have had a lot of different speakers before and was using Rainbow SLC 265's before this, but I've never heard any kind of speaker that sounds like these before.

    I loved my Rainbow's, but these do a much better job at keeping up with the subwoofer, and have a sound to them that I would describe as magical. I've listened to hip hop, EDM, acoustic guitar, rock, and no matter what I throw at them, it keeps amazing me. It feels like a religious experience when these are at high volume.

    Glad you like them. Seems it's a love/hate thing with Maximos. I have the 5.25" version and the midrange clarity was unbelievable, but they wouldn't play low enough under power. So I swapped the mids for something else but kept the tweeters. I like them a lot.

    I just looked up the PHD FB 6.1 and OMJesus, these look promising. I was also looking at crescendo PWX 6.5 or CDT HD 61a, basically that woven fiber look. How do u feel the FB's compare to these others, price an performance?

    Personally they are not in the same league as the PWX, they are just designed to get loud, while the Fb pros are designed to get loud and sound fantastic.

    I do feel they are superior to the CDT's in accurate reproduction, and in output.

    I'm not quite sure of the price on the other sets, but the PHD FB 6.1 pro kit has an MSRP of $435, but again that is just MSRP and that of course has wiggle room.

    I believe I'd b fine with the reg component set an with tht being the Pro price. I guess ther is no comparison....I'm seeing these things get all kinds of praise. I take it ur a PHD vendor?

    I was thinking about these but i was afraid at such a low price I won't like them.
    Can u give a more in depth review? What do you mean they sound amazing? I wanna replace what I have now because my mids just don't do it for me. How do the speakers blend with each other? Does it seem like all the sound is coming from the tweeters or is it a more even sound that you can actually hear voice from the mids? Is it like a surround sound affect?

    Man you guys are really driving me nuts . I don't know what to choose. I was thinking ppi, then thinking morel, now u throw this in the mix. I want something very balanced, clarity is really what im after. I wanna be able to hear voice and instruments from my door speakers as well as tweeters without one overwhelming the other and being equally clear and crisp. Will the PhD fb 6.1 do the trick?

    Re: Just got a set of Morel Maximos, completely insane!

    Let's just say @jeffdachef ; got really lucky by getting those FB mids from me at the price he did. They really have an exceptional quality to them, though I really wish they'd address the issue with wonky terminals (had the QD connections come off the basket during install, but tinsels were still connected).



    Deck: JVC KD-A95BT
    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
    Amps: Boston Acoustics GT-2125, Zed Minotaur III (x2)
