    Re: Where can you buy morel

    which morel are you talking about? the links that ss3079 posted are for the american imitation company that has their drivers made in taiwan. what's even funnier is that the second link has a picture of a real morel supremo tweeter from isreal with a plug for the real website. hahaha! www.morel.co.il/car.htm is what you want.

    Morel Israel and Morel USA used to be the same company. They ended up breaking off their relationship and are no longer one company, but Morel USA is hardly an immitation.

    Oh god.....not the Morel v. Morel debate again.....

    Although I believe that both madisound and partsexpress sell the Morel Isreal, not Morel USA. I could be wrong though.

    ummm...how bout' no scott. one of the owner's sons or nephews(can't remember which one) basically pirated all the designs made the speakers for next to nothing thanks to offshore labor and continues to sell them in the U.S. because they look similar to the real morel's and people believe that they are good. go look in this years car audio and electronic buyers guide and tell me where you can find the U.S. morels? it under some company...us-prestige...something jank like that. anyways my point is you can buy from either manufacturer, just know that allthough they may appear very similar on the outside they are not even in the same league when it comes to technology and craftsmanship.

    *sigh*

    This has been played out already....but in the time I have been on the forums, I have seen responses from both Morels. From what they have said in the past, Morel Isreal and Morel USA did used to be the same company. The owners of the two companies were cousins (I believe) and both used to own/run Morel Isreal. One of the cousins came here to the US with the purpose of opening/running Morel USA, which was sort of like a subsidiary of Morel Isreal and was the US distributor/importer of the Morel Isreal products (at this time, the two companies were still related). This is where their stories start to deviate from each other...but somehow they (the cousins) came to be at odds against one another, and Morel USA broke off from it's Israeli counterpart. Since they both used to be a part of the "original" Morel, they both had availability to the product designs. So, Morel USA started producing speakers also using basically those same designs and the same name; Morel. Neither could agree on who actually owned the rights to those designs and name....Morel USA claims they have the rights, Morel Isreal claims they have the rights.

    I'm not going to get into which one is better than the other....but above is the general jist of how things came to be.

    Re: Where can you buy morel

    thanks for that link! very informative. apperently i only had part of the story. and don't get me wrong, i'm not bashing the u.s. company, this whole unsorted mess is just terrible for both companies.
