I have a Morel Elate 6 3-way system along with a Kenwood Excelon DNX8120 head unit. These are both amazing units. The Morel Elates are in absolutely mint condition. This pair was used as rear fill and was powered by a Alpine PDX 4.150. They are less than 9 months old. They were professionally installed by the authorized dealer they were bought from. I don't think I need much more description. Those that know about the speakers, know what they are capable of. I think they retail for $1900. Price is $935 or make an offer!





The Kenwood Excelon is in excellent condition and was used in the car the Elates were in. I wish I could keep this, but the money looks better at this point. Bluetooth, XM, GPS, USB, touchscreen, excellent sound quality and lots of crossovers and slopes. This has got it all! This unit is not too old. I would think just over a year old. It was bought from and installed at the same place as the Elates. Retail is about $1600. Price is $850 or make an offer!

What all wiring harnesses comes with the 8120? Like the steering wheels harness and so on.... And what ride did you have it in?

BTW: These online are about $1200 bucks. I was looking at crutchfeild and with all the wiring adapters and a rear camera it was about $1300. $850 doesn't sound to bad if you have what I need to hook it up to my car though......

This is a LARGE image of all the accessories.

Included is the gps antenna, microphone, pre-outs, av i/o, the remote and A LOT of manuals.

It was taken out of a BMW 7-series. I am pretty sure he preserved the steering wheel volume controls, hence the peripheral piece attached into the harness cabling. I believe it has pretty much everything besides the camera you mentioned.

How is the SQ on the 8120? the specs look great but i have read mixed reviews stating it was "flat" and not not that great

I,m interested but need to know the final product is as good as the sum of its parts.

I cannot comment firsthand because I have not used it at all. I can tell you that the previous owner just about crapped himself when he heard it in the system. He was VERY pleased with it. I can easily see how someone could set it up wrong and get a "flat" sound out of it.


Drooling over the Elates. My system is complete, but I love those speakers. I have been looking for them for a long long time. This set is the best I have seen in terms of condition.
An audio system is never complete! Yes, they are in absolutely pristine condition. If you are a little tempted, I have MANY pictures of the mint condition of the drivers and tweeters... They will make you fall in love though, so be careful what you wish for. I have another 2 way and 3 way Elate 6 system as well. I am trying to decide which to use in my car and then sell the other.

I have owned the ddx8019, alpine 505 and now I have the ddx-812 (I already had the navi) the sound surpasses both of the others by a long shot! I thought the 505 had a fantastic picture but I think the 812 is at least = or better. Sound and features its the best in dash on the market by far IMO. Bump for the awesome goodies....thinking about those elates....little rich for my blood these days though.

Thanks for your thoughts on the deck. Hope that helps 02VetZ06!

As I am sure you know, with good speakers, if you buy them at a low price (which this CLEARLY is) you rarely ever lose money if/when you resell them... Especially if you maintain the condition they are in! With these being just 9 months old in immaculate condition, this is a great price and they will not depreciate much. Feel free to PM me if you want to work something out.

Just to let you know I sold mine last week on ebay in less than 4 hours of listing. And I got more than I was trying to sell it here for.

You're price is a really good price, but be wary of the lowball offers to come. I've gotten weird offers like $675, $775 shipped to Canada you might be better off going ebay. Some people here will try to talk to you like you don't know what this unit is worth.

The SQ on this unit is superb, I'd say it's equivalent to a 9887 or 800PRS, it doesn't have bandpass, but it does have time alignment, individual gain control, and a 13 band graphic eq.

Good luck on the sale.

I hope you and anyone else on here did not get the wrong impression by what I said about the price of those elates. I think it is a phenominal deal, I just meant it is to much for me to spend on anything right now. I will be in the market for new speakers once my Mcintosh and A/D/S stuff sells and these are #1 on my list. I would rather the 9" version, but if they are there when the other stuff sells.......
Well anyway good luck with the sale......

Thanks Skylar. Yeah, I know this is a great unit and it is priced VERY fairly.

rexroad, I knew exactly what you were trying to say. Hopefully that other stuff sells soon!

I am not really looking for trades. That would put me in a spot that I don't want to be in. Hopefully something of yours sells. Aren't you also selling a McIntosh amp?
