Premium Brand Showdown – Will it be Morel, Polk, or Focal Car Audio Systems for You?

When it comes to an exceptional car audio experience, there’s no single brand that stands out. Everyone has their favourites which they rarely want to swerve away from. Experimenting with new car speakers or audio units is rarely a case with those who are loyal to brands such as Alpine, Pioneer, Morel, Polk, Focal, Kenwood, Boss, Kicker, JBL and the likes.

Brands such as Alpine, Pioneer, Focal, Boss, JBL, Kenwood, may be ruling the roost but there are others on the market that are not just proving their worth but demanding loyalty from audiophiles. These are Morel, Focal, and Polk. But among them too, there are now camps that fanatically favour one over the other. So the king among car audio systems still remains to be crowned yet and one can always choose their own kings for their cars. Don’t know where to begin?
How about the following showdown of features of each of the three brands? Let’s see which one from the comparison list* wins you over:

Out of the three, Focal and Polk car component systems have outclassed Morel by bagging top slots in the top ten list of 6.5” 2-way component speakers and their popularity is growing with each passing day. Although Morel is not a bad option at all if budget is a constraint and your factory-fit speakers are worse than a rickety car’s radio.

In any case, avoid desperate purchases and choose wisely and go for a speaker that lets you enjoy every musical note, genre, and sound just the way it should be. If that requires parting with a few more bucks, then our advice is, go for it! Because once you have got a spectacular car audio system in your vehicle, you’ll be happily crooning to its music for at least 5 years or even longer!

The verdict is out, as far as this list is concerned.

But check your car, your pocket, and your choice of deep bass, live music, or concert-feel before you hit the Add to Cart button for any of these!
