Product Details

Morel MDT 12 1-1/8" Neodymium Tweeter

The Morel MDT-12 is a chamberless neodymium design that offers big tweeter performance in an ultra-compact package. Measuring only 3/4" deep, it uses Morel's standard 1-1/8" dome and a powerful neodymium motor for big sound. The ferrofluid in the gap, self-shielded design, and smooth overall response make this tweeter applicable to conventional two-ways and home theater systems.

Morel MDT 12 1-1/8" Neodymium Tweeter
Morel MDT 12 1-1/8" Neodymium Tweeter is rated 4.5625 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Morel MDT 12: Great Performance in a Small PackageI purchased this tweeter for its' small size to be paired with two 4" peerless mid woofers to form an open baffle D'Appolito center channel for a flat screen TV. Here's the cool part ... this high frequency driver not only seamlessly melds with the peerless drivers, but also with the two main speakers, an expensive mix of HiVi D6G and Dynavox TD2801XL drivers. This little tweeter, along with the mid woofers, fills the gap between the two main speakers that, due to an oddly shaped room, are spaced to far apart to create a uniform sound stage on their own. This tweeter is crossed over at 2KHz. Any lower and you run into the driver's resonance point. The unique design of this tweeter is that the speaker terminals reside within the boundary of the cut-out needed for the driver to be mounted to the baffle (Read: drill the hole, mount the driver, and connect the terminals). In summary, you get solid extended high frequency performance in a tiny, easy to mount form factor. A great product in a small package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small package, big sound!I am in the process of upgrading my SQ competition vehicle, and I ordered a handful of these and 2" Morel dome mids for my A-pillars. Upon initial testing, these tweeters will be perfect for what I need. I am so glad Morel makes such a compact unit- they are perfect for car audio and fiberglass! I will have these hooked up with active crossovers and 240Wrms on each group of 4 in my A-pillars. I will be running a 3,000Wrms front stage when I am all done, and these little guys are the answer to the 5Khz+ presence in the car. I cnanot wait to hear them in my car. The initial test in my living room was amazing. After time alignment and 31 band EQ adjustments, I have no doubts I will be killing the SQ competition out here with my Morel front stage. Yay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from replace tweeters in aging infinity rs5'sThe old tweeters in my Infinity RS5's started crackling. So I went about getting replacements. I went with these because they were recommended. They work well. The only noticeable difference is that I have to have the volume up higher to get the same conversation loudness as the old ones. It does seem to blend in well with the other aspects of the sounds though. Overall I am pleased. Thank you very much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Budget TweeterThis tweeter is average. Its best feature is its power handling. Currently crossing it at 5khz with no issues. I wish the driver housing was metal instead of plastic, and that it would ship in something other than a cheap plastic snap together case. With that said, I would still buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replaced my nht super zero tweetersthe zero's birth date was 12May1992.I always thought the tweeter was their weakest link. I like a more pronounced tweeter such as the titanium Legacy in their 1998 Studios. Morel filled the bill with these jewels. simple drop in exchange...everything hooks up nicely. you will have to furnish your own gaskets though. try a nearfield listening session...speakers 4 feet apart and you 6 feet away...takes the room pretty much out of the loop. have fun

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth sounding..Great price!These are great sounding tweeters for the money. However, the terminals can be a bit fragile. I installed these to replace the tweeters in the sail panels of my Toyota Camry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great productI was looking for something to just replace my mb quart tweeters ... These worked great! they also went perfectly in the stock location... (2001 prelude)Smooth response, great power handling... Amazing for the money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best low Fs, small format tweeter for the moneyI'm using these in my car in conjunction with a 7" aluminum cone midbass/midrange that has some nasty breakup over 2kHz. I needed the Morels to play low enough to use a 2kHz crossover. Not only are they playing wonderfully without breaking a sweat, it has raised the soundstage in my car since the Morels are mounted in the OEM e46 M3 locations at the top of the doors. The terminals are just a little fragile if you find that you need to bend them to make clearance. Bend them just once!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't forget about soft domesFor $30/each, these tweeters are unbelievable. I replaced the OEM tweeters in my Infinity Beta 50 (with slight modification of the cabinet) and they sound better than ever. The OEM tweeter was a little to light on the highs, but the Morels are fantastic (they are crossed at 3.2khz). Imaging is great and saxophones, trumpets and electric guitars sound amazing. I especially like the way trumpets sound (e.g. Chris Botti and Rick Braun). I haven't heard a soft dome in probably 10 years since metal domes took over, but this tweeter has a smooth, warm sound. I think the extra 1/8 of an inch in diameter creates a lot more surface area, which benefits the horizontal dispersion.I also bought the Tang Band soft dome tweeters (part # 264-804) for a different set of speakers and I can tell you that it's worth the extra money for the Morels (you get better clarity, better dispersion, and better build).The Morels are great for tight spaces too, due to their compact design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for shallow mount!I mounted these in the door panels of my mitsubishi lancer by cutting holes for them, and they perform flawlessly! Driven by 40WRMS, they are extremely crisp and clear, and their fat freq. resp. compensated for my old and inappropriate crossover very well. If only the mounting plates weren't square . . .still working on that one.
