Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Drivers: The satellite speaker houses a 2-3/4" titanium
deposit polypropylene cone woofer with butyl rubber surround and a 3/4" pure
titanium hybrid (PTH) dome tweeter mounted on the Omniguide.
Omnipolar Technology: By utilizing the natural room
reflections this speaker design radiates sound in a 360° pattern, expanding the
sweet spot to encompass virtually the entire room.
Omniguide: The patented Omniguide module utilizes two
deflectors, one each for the tweeter and midrange. The module disperses sound

and other surfaces for a completely immersive, 360º experience.
Enclosure: The satellite speaker has an acoustic suspension,
extruded aluminum enclosure.
Speaker Terminals: The satellite features high-quality
binding post speaker terminals for a secure and convenient connection. You will

position the speaker right side up or upside down. Once mounted the speaker can
swivel left or right (approximately +/-40°). The bracket mounts the speaker
approximately 1/4" from the wall. The 1/4" 20 threaded insert on the bottom can
also be used with other brackets. If you mount the satellite speaker more than
six feet off the floor, Mirage recommends turning it upside down. If you place
the satellite speaker on a table or shelf, put it as close to the front edge as
Optional Stands: The NanoSat speaker can be mounted on the
optional Mirage MS-STB-1 stands (item number 653MSSTBB). When mounting the
speakers on these stands, you must retain and use the rubber washers that come
with the speakers (mounted between the speaker and the attached metal bracket).
Without the rubber washer, the NanoSat speaker will not properly tighten to the
