We consider Morawetz estimates for weighted energy decay of solutions to the wave equation on scattering manifolds (i. e., those with large conic ends). We show that a Morawetz estimate persists for solutions that are localized at low frequencies, independent of the geometry of the compact part of the manifold. We further prove a new type of Morawetz estimate in this context, with both hypotheses and conclusion localized inside the forward light cone. This result allows us to gain a 1/2 power of t decay relative to what would be dictated by energy estimates, in a small part of spacetime.
