Minimalist design meets powerful, accurate sound
Minimalist design meets powerful, accurate sound
The Morel Högtalare speaker fits perfectly in IKEA's Kallax and Expedit shelving systems (not included),
Count on Morel to create a simple powered Bluetooth speaker that delivers exceptional sound quality. The Högtalare's three built-in speaker drivers create a spacious soundfield with true stereo separation. The sophisticated minimalist design makes this speaker a welcome addition to any décor.
The Högtalare has two 1" soft-dome tweeters for accurate highs. The 6" woofer delivers detailed midrange and solid bass. These three drivers are mounted in a wood cabinet that features a tuned, front-firing port to reinforce the low frequencies. The system is driven by three discrete amplifiers that deliver 50 watts of total continuous power.
You can wirelessly pair up to five Bluetooth devices with the Högtalare (but you can only play one at a time). Using its TWS (True Wireless Stereo) feature, you can wirelessly pair two Högtalare speakers for even bigger two-channel stereo.
The Högtalare has a stereo minijack for connecting compatible audio sources. There's also a USB Type-A charging port on the back so you can keep your smartphone charged while you're streaming via Bluetooth.
Although you can place the Högtalare on just about any bookshelf or tabletop, there's an added bonus for IKEA furniture fans. The speaker is made to fit perfectly into IKEA's Kallax and Expedit shelving systems, for a seamless-looking setup.

More details on the Morel Högtalare
Two-Way Stereo Driver Design: The Morel Hogtalare (Swedish for "Speaker") incorporates a two-way stereo driver design with two 1" soft-dome tweeters and one 6" cone woofer to produce stereo sound that is articulate and full of emotion. You'll enjoy detailed highs, crystal clear mids, and robust bass from your music.
- 1" Soft-Dome Tweeters: The two 1" soft-dome tweeters were selected for their smooth and detailed sound. Each tweeter plays one channel (left or right), creating a true stereo experience with a wide and full soundstage.
- 6" Cone Woofer: The powerful 6" cone woofer delivers dynamic lifelike bass that is rich and natural.
Discrete Amplification with DSP: The Morel Hogtalare is equipped with three custom-made amplifiers totaling 50 watts. Each tweeter and woofer is powered by its own dedicated amplifier. Theses dedicated amplifiers utilize custom built DSP (Digital Signal Processing) for optimized and dynamic stereo sound at any volume level.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Morel Hogtalare uses a custom-engineered, reinforced wood cabinet with a bass reflex (ported) design that complements its driver array perfectly for clear, natural, and efficient sound. The custom-tuned port is on the front of the cabinet which helps with placement options. The wood cabinet is finished in a black vinyl and comes with a detachable, magnetic cloth grille.
TWS (True Wireless Stereo): For a wider soundstage and increased output for larger spaces, the Morel Hogtalare offers TWS (True Wireless Stereo) functionality allowing you to pair two Hogtalare speakers together to create a wider and broader stereo setup. TWS (True Wireless Stereo) is accomplished using a wireless Bluetooth connection between the two Morel Hogtalare speaker.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: Thanks to built-in Bluetooth 4.2 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP), you are able to wirelessly stream audio from stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to the Morel Hogtalare speaker. You'll still control your music and view song/artist/album information from your Bluetooth source device.
- aptX Codec: In addition to Bluetooth's standard SBC codec supported by the majority of Bluetooth source devices (including Apple iOS device), the Hogtalare offers support for Bluetooth's higher quality aptX codec. Now you can wirelessly stream music from your aptX-enabled Bluetooth source device (such as many Android smartphones and tablets) with more consistent, higher quality audio. aptX offers a fixed compression ratio to ensure consistency, plus up to a 16-bit/48kHz sampling rate and 20Hz-20kHz frequency range for uncompromized sound quality.
- Multi-Device Pairing & Auto Reconnection: You can pair up to 5 devices with the Hogtalare speaker, but only one source device can be connected and used at a time. The speaker will try to automatically connect with previously paired device when within in range, prioritizing the last connected device. If the BT source and Hogtalare get out of range of one another and disconnect, the speaker will attempt to auto reconnect as soon as they are within range again.
