Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Many audio manufacturers have similarly convoluted histories

I'm a fan of Morel drivers, which have much in common with Dynaudio, because in the early 1970s Edjvind Skanning and Meir Mordecai co-developed several of the core technologies and shared the patents before starting their respective companies. In fact, Dynaudio started recommending Morel replacements for their own drivers after getting out of the DIY/OEM market sector. Now Morel offers some ultra-upscale drivers, but their standard line are quite decent and priced competitively with Euro brands like SEAS.

For awhile there were two "Morel" companies, after Mordecai and his finance guy split up. The latter took the name and the designs and started manufacturing in the U.S., while Mordecai remained in Israel. Lawsuits and litigation of course followed, some lawyers earned their keep, and the American company changed its name to "Renaissance" or some such.
