Morel Logo


The Morel MW144 is a 5 inch drive unit featuring a rigid pressed steel chassis, a damped polymer cone, a huge 75mm Hexatech voice coil and a dual magnet system. The highish Qts of 0.55 dictates that this drive unit is more suited to sealed enclosures and when optimised will deliver a smooth, full bass response. Very popular with DIY builders in the late 80s - mid 90s.
