      Morel Maximo Upgrade - Mercury C62, Rainbow SL/ GL, Focal 165FX, Morel Tempo/ Tempo Ultra

      Hi Helpies,

      I am keen on upgrading my components from Morel Maximo.

      My current set up is :
      • HU - Pioneer 80 PRS
      • Amp - 75 RMS Infinity
      • Sub- JBL (dont remember the model number)


      I only wish to upgrade the front stage. Budget is flexible (till 40-45K) but i donot wish to upgrade my Amp so need to consider Components near to 75 RMS range. I wish play them Passive only / Standard Mode. I play all kind of music but would prefer a detailed tweeter.
      I was looking at following components (though all belong to different price range):
      1. Morel Tempo / Tempo Ultra - It has a Tempo tweeter which is more or less similar to Maximo tweeter. From what i understand, it is Maximo component with high power rating.
      2. Rainbow SL 6.2 - not sure if they will be as much detailed as Morel? Heard positive reviews about clarity and kick.
      3. Rainbow GL 6.2 - excellent components but RMS is 120W which might be bit high for 75 RMS amp. Therefore inclined towards SL 6.2
      4. Focal Flax 165FX - Mixed reviews. Some compare it to Focal Elite - KRX/ Utopia series because of its new cone and tweeter, some still find the bright Focal signature present in this series. I read the whole Focal FX thread by @Mclaren as well.
      5. Mercury Audio C62 - 60 W RMS, excellent components, but limited availability/service in Chandigarh where i stay.


      It is very difficult to audition any of the pairs mentioned above in Chandigarh as none of the dealers help in auditioning.
      Also i may plan to source them from Europe or USA as they are available at cheaper price range.
      Please advise.

      I would suggest Mercury C62, I am using it and I choose it over DLS reference set I was using earlier. It very good speaker set for the price point and very dynamic set, doesnt need much power to play also. The build quality is top notch too.

      For audition - plan a trip to Delhi over weekend and you can speak to different outlets who will be happy to give you auditions. I can give one if you plan to come to Delhi over weekends.

      Interesting thread, infact I'm also on.the same boat. Btw why are you so worried on the power handling rating of speaker? As long as it's having similar sensitivity, the output level to be similar for a given power feeding to it, right?

      I have had the opportunity to install and tune most of the above mentioned speakers. My personal favourites in order:

      1. Rainbow GL.
      2. Rainbow SL.
      3. Tempo Ultra.
      4. Mercury C62.
      5. Focal Flax.

      But if you have a budget of 40-45k, I wouldn't put my money on any of the speakers other than GL. At that price point, there are a lot of other very nice speakers in the market today.

      Also I doubt the SL tweeters are the CAL series. CAL series tweeters were the erstwhile Platinum/Profi/Vanadium tweeters and in some special edition sets like DL Pros which are all now out of production.
