Israel may not be the first place you think of when it comes to high-end audio, but Morel has been creating high quality audio from that very country since 1975.

Their latest speaker is called the fat lady, and its design is as unique as its name.

All the info after the jump.

The curvaceous composite enclosure is made from carbon fiber and fiberglass and has no straight lines.

The bass reflex design holds two 9-inch woofers made from a "carbon fiber-Rohacell sandwich cone" with a double magnet motor and a 3-inch external aluminum voice coil. These cross over to the 6-inch mid-range at 200 Hz. The mid is made from the same material and sports a similar design as the woofers.

At 2,500 Hz the mid-range crosses over to the soft-dome 1.1-inch tweeter, which is made from "hand-coated Acuflex" and sports a Neodymium magnet and an aluminum external voice coil. Each of the drivers was designed, developed, and tuned specifically for this speaker.

Morel is claiming a frequency response of 20-25,000 Hz or 60-18,000 Hz ±1.5 dB, an impedance of 6-ohms, and a sensitivity (2.83V/1 meter) of 87 dB.

It's hard to tell from the images, but the dimensions are 13 3/8" wide, 50" tall, and 17 3/8” deep and a mere 97 pounds… each.

PRICE: $32,000/pair
