How would you rate Morel vs Hertz in general ?Just listened to the morel's, Wow, very clear. The tweeter is so far the best out of the bunch so far. The mid doesn't like too much power though, wouldn't cross anything lower than 80hz. Again alot more details to come. Still waiting on deliveries. I did get the PHD speakers in however the package was crushed so I am trying to resolve that as well.
I will give a small review of what I have heard and concluded so far:How would you rate Morel vs Hertz in general ?
I am confused which to buy. the normal tempo (157$) or the esk 165 (205$).
The hertz are not too bright (they do have top end sparkle though), however are not the cleanest sounding tweeter, I can't put my finger on it. Not sure if it is due to a little distortion coming through or an too much upper midrange output that sounds a tad too saturated. It is a very good tweeter so don't let these negatives out shine that this is still a very good tweeter.Thank you David !
I wish you explained what type of music you like. etc...
I have read many reviews that Hertz have too bright/harsh tweeters. And that the Morels/Audison for example are warmer to listen to.
How do you find these claims ?
Absolutely agree, however there are certain details that should be heard in the upper frequencies that some sets wont reproduce due to how laid back the tweeter is.One thing to keep in mind is that some sets may sound better and crisper, others may not, and the better sounding ones may give you headaches or ear pain after hours of listening. And some people may be more sensitive than others. Tweeter positioning may also reduce the fatigue some may suffer from it in a car.
I had a feeling the Hertz would do well.I am still waiting on the helix, rainbow, and PHD to be delivered. I have tested all the sets I have so far and would have to rate the hertz as the number one overall (sq, durability, imaging, etc). I would have rated the JBL on the same level but they did not hold up (the surround came apart from the basket). The Realm are amazing in their own category, they have great tonal accuracy however do not image well off axis due to a high crossover point and inverted dome (they would make a nice home set). I am going to have a much detailed report when I am finished with them all but figured to give some quick thoughts.
