When a challenge is presented to Morel’s R&D team they like to take the solution one step further. Making a mini speaker that produces a full stereo performance even without a subwoofer that could be easily mistaken for a high-end floor-standing when matched with one, was a real dare due to the limited internal volume small speakers posse.
Advanced metal processing and design allowed the SP-3 to be both strong and light weight, with an enclosure constructed of a merely 1mm thick steel to maximize the internal volume. A port was created in the front of the satellite to extend bass frequencies. The tailored drive unit was specifically tuned to work in that small enclosure.
