Review

The Motel Tempo Ultra 602 is one of the punchiest component systems within its price range. It comes equipped with a 1-1/2″ voice coil and a robust magnet that grants it great power handling ability.

Each speaker peaking at 250 watts and 120 watts of RMS power, in addition to a fairly good frequency response range of 55 – 22,000 Hz, a pretty impressive system.

For a frequency range that starts at 55 Hz, you’d expect the system to lack a bit of presence in the low-frequency range. The notes in that range are a bit too smooth for me and aren’t really as refined as the highs, which by the way are truly impressive. No shrillness and no grating sound qualities accompanying the high notes at all. For both low and high ranges, distortion is minimal.

I really enjoy the crisp clear sound quality that’s a result of running on 75w RMS per each channel and the choice of sound-deadening materials. The construction is also pretty solid and feels very durable. Please note that Morel’s 6-1/2″ description of the speakers is what many manufacturers designate as 6-3/4″, just so you won’t be confused.

The installation process is hassle-free and requires minimal effort. The tweeter is small enough to be mounted almost anywhere. When compared to previous models, the Tempo Ultra 602 has a larger voice coil and lower distortion levels. Also, the bass response has gone through notable improvements. I can’t stress enough how punchy that bass is.

The soft dome tweeter houses a neodymium magnet that helps deliver clear and detailed highs. Also, the high-quality external crossover helps balance the highs and lowers so that one quality tower above the other and cause unwanted harsh sounds. Overall, I’m impressed with the Morel Tempo Ultra 602.
