Morel Dotech 6" vs jl audio c5-650 vs hybrid audio c51-2

just put a new system in my 2010 tacoma access cab. I have the jl audio stealthbox with 10w3v3-2 sub and the jl audio c3-570's in the front all powered by the new jl audio 500x3 amp. I am not happy with the c3-570s i felt they were too flat, not enough depth. After a lot of research i am struggling between the morel dotech 6" which i have never heard, the jl audio c5-650's which i have heard and feel they are a decent speaker or the hybrid audio c51-2 which i have never heard but are getting great reviews.

I am open for suggestions, these are all similar in price and i would like to stick to that price range. Around $400 - $500. I will only be putting a pair in the front since toyota decided to make the worst set up for a stereo and put the rear speakers in the roof of the truck, i just disconnected them.

I am not sure what amp you are running, I cannot find a 500x3 listed on their site.

With that said, If your option is the Hybrid in 5.25" instead of the 6.5", then I would bypass those. If you mean the 61-2, I would certainly consider those over the others.

Next up, its a toss up. Those morel drivers are OK, but not great. Never heard the JL ones.


Good luck.

The 500x3 is a new amp that just came out. The 500x3 just came out, right now i have the 400x4 and the 500x3 will be installed next week. The only reason i was looking at the c51-2's is without hearing them i can really only go off what the reviews say and the c51-2 have amazing reviews while the c61-2 i can not find much on.

My brother has some Jl Audio c5 650's and they sound very nice to me. I was really impressed.

I picked up some Focal 165 V30's from Pacific Stereo for $340 shipped (Authorized Retailer). I listened to them at a shop and they sounded awesome!

You cant go wrong with either the Hybrids or the Morels. I have run the Imagine 6's and they sound amazing on amp power as well as the Morel Virtus 6's on amp power and they sound awesome
