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 midrange with butyl rubber surround and a
3/4" pure titanium hybrid (PTH) dome tweeter mounted on the Omniguide.
Using the Omniguide, the NanoSat satellite speaker radiates sound in a 360° pattern. This
pattern creates a deeper, more spacious soundstage and a bigger sweet spot in
your listening area than a typical direct radiating speaker. When listening to
acoustic instruments live, we hear more sound reflected than directly. The Omniguide closely approximates this reflected to direct ratio, giving the
NanoSat its large, realistic soundstage.
Enclosure: The satellite speaker has an acoustic
suspension, extruded aluminum enclosure.
Mounting: The satellite speaker comes with a key-hole slot wall mount bracket
installed. The bracket is mounted with one screw and can position the speaker
right side up or upside down. The bracket mounts the speaker
approximately 1/4" away from the wall. 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 (653MSSTBB). When mounting the speakers on these stands,
you must retain and use the white 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 stand.
Speaker Terminals: The
satellite features high-quality binding post
speaker terminals for a secure and convenient connection. You will need to
remove a plug that's inserted in the center of the binding post if you wish to
use single banana plugs, the terminals are too far apart for dual banana plugs.
Spade connectors, pin connectors, or bare wire up to 10 gauge can also be used.
Video Shielded: The
satellite speaker is magnetically shielded for
safe placement near your TV or computer monitor without causing picture
Speaker Matching: If you
wish to use the NanoSat speaker for a surround system, you can
purchase additional satellites (653NANOPB) and/or an additional center channel speaker (653NANOCTR,
same design in a different cabinet)
to fill out your speaker requirements.
