SonicGear Morro 3 BTMI 2.1 Speaker Review Review

The Morro 3 is a feature rich 2.1 speaker that comes with Bluetooth connectivity, so how good is it?

The first feature that strikes your attention is the color, the review unit here is orange but that’s not the only color option available.

The satellite speakers are small and light, it’s has a cut out at the base but doesn’t contribute anything to the audio quality.

At the base of the satellite speakers are 4 padded feet, there are no mounting holes at the back for the speaker so there’s no way to mount it on floor stands.

The speakers are connect with RCA connectors.

The subwoofer unit has the bass reflex port facing forward and the far side of the speaker has this decorative extension that doesn’t seem to serve any purpose other than blocking the view of the panel at the side.

User Experience

The Morro 3 BTMI looks great, I gotta hand that to Sonic Gear for producing such a neat looking speaker.

In the audio department, I’m disappointed to say that the speaker sounds hollow, very unlike the quality output found on the Enzo 500. Even with audio adjustments made via software equalizer, there’s no way the software could make up for the lack of mid tone.

Another thing I didn’t like is the short cable for the satellite unit. To make things worse, the RCA connectors are on the right side of the subwoofer so your left speaker would have to go all the way to the other side. With that, it seems like the only way to have an equal distance between subwoofer to both speaker, is to follow the shortened distance to the left speaker.

The Morro 3 doesn’t come with remote control unit either, my guess is that it’s made as a Bluetooth speaker so it’s expected that volume control should be done via the playback device.

The Verdict

The SonicGear Morro 3 BTMI 2.1 Speaker retails at RM 159, the audio quality is a let down for those with discerning ears. The cable length for the satellite speaker makes it very limited in setup as well. In the end you’re paying quite a good sum of money for just an average speaker with Bluetooth connectivity.
