Spherical strong, light, 1mm thick enclosure design. Ideal acoustically with excellent installation flexibility.
To be a satellite means very small and discrete, on the other hand, the need to reproduce as much of the audio spectrum as possible requires a relatively large enclosure. The Morel solution is to fashion a sphere using advanced metal processing that is strong yet light and only 1mm thick, preserving significant and valuable internal volume.
The SoundSpot™ SP-2, winner of the 2010 CEA Design and Engineering Innovations award (as part of the MT-2 system) thin steel enclosure is deliberately left empty without damping. This unusual concept allows the enclosure to vibrate along with the music as part housing a 4″ (100mm) coaxial driver with 1.2” (32mm) high-temperature voice coil for the mid/woofer unit, and a ferrite magnet system. The tweeter is a soft dome, ¾” (19mm) liquid-cooled voice coil, neodymium magnet motor.
The SoundSpot™ SP-2 spherical design whilst ideal from an acoustical standpoint also lends itself to a novel method of adjustment when attached to walls and ceilings. The spheres are able to rotate 270 degrees horizontally and 90 degrees vertically whilst using a single screw to lock the spheres when positioned. Total control of the sound field is assured in any living space and is so easy to achieve.
The satellite base enables on-wall, on-ceiling, and on-shelf placement without adding any additional accessories, offering great installation flexibility.
