Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME CLARITYI've set these up in a 4-way active system from 1K to 5000 with a Carvin hd900 amp driving 'em, THE CLARITY IS AWESOME. On the top I've matched them up with a pair of morel md-30s, and the two together are some of the best I've heard! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM crossed over from 1k-5k!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classicOne of the finest mids at any price if used correctly above 1000 hz. Very dynamic device capable of playing very loud and clean. Shines at reproducing electric guitar. Best if combined with larger woofers(12-15") in a higher efficency (90-93db)system. Not recommended for smaller 3-ways. I own 4 of these drivers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fine sonicsKeep in mind that this driver is very flat from 1,000 Hz to 5,500 Hz,however it drops off erratically below 1,000 Hz.A designer should plan on using a woofer that is very flat out to 1,200 or 1,500 Hz and cross over no lower than 1,000 Hz. with a second or third-order filter.Very natural sound in that frequency band!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Midrange speakerNice midrange speaker. My only complaint is the square shape of the front which makes it kind of a pain to flush mount. I would have prefered a circle so I could use circle jig. Sounds great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Low power handlingThey sound great and natural, but when I turned them up they overheated and started playing very low on both speakers. I was using my Denon 110 watts receiver in stereo to power a pair of JBL E80 speakers for which I replaced the Mid with the Morel and also a Dayton XO3W-700/5.6K 3-Way Crossover 700/5,600 Hz crossover. My receiver did not clip or caused distortion at the volume I was playing it at, so it wasn't my receiver that caused the the Morels to go.

Morel MDM 55 2-1/8" Soft Dome Midrange

This Item is rated @ 200 watts RMS. Is this pre or post crossover?

Asked by: Dizz E
I would say this is post crossover. I certainly don't think 200 watts rms would be advisable on this before any crossover.
