NOTE: The COVO-S is not self-powered, and requires an amplifier and speaker wire (not included) to play music.
The COVO-S compact speaker system is another landmark product form Micca that delivers great sound in a small package. Drawing from the same classic yet distinctively design as Micca’s popular MB series speakers, the COVO-S looks great and is easy to place in wide variety of room decors. Its exceptionally rich sound belies its diminutive size and makes it a great selection for use in a small to medium sized listening areas such as an office. The COVO-S is shielded.
Superior Sound Through Superior Engineering
Built using patented concentric driver design, the COVO-S’s audio performance results from a balanced application of sophisticated drivers, enclosure tuning, and crossover construction. The speaker driver used is a 3-inch wool paper cone woofer with an inset mounted 0.75″ PEI dome tweeter. By sharing a common acoustical center point, the concentric woofer and tweeter design maintains coherency through the crossover transition region. The unique curve of the woofer cone serves as a horn waveguide for the tweeter, resulting in improved off-axis dispersion characteristics.
The COVO-S employs a ported enclosure design, generating modest bass output for a warm sound signature. A 6dB/octave crossover makes for a smooth transition between the woofer and the tweeter. Rounding out the package are full size 5-way speaker wire binding posts and removable grills.
Compact and Affordable
Hearing is believing. Discover how good a pair of affordable compact speaker can be by trying them risk free in your home. Due to the COVO-S’s small size, they work best when used in a small to medium sized listening area. Place them along a wall or near a corner of the room for better bass output. If you are not absolutely delighted with the COVO-S’s performance, simply return them for a refund.

No wooden boxes I found online fit my needs, and I was about to give up when I spotted a wire mesh storage basket at my local container outlet. The width of the basket matched the height of the COVOs almost exactly so I picked one up. Turns out the basket was perfect; not only does it give the boombox a nice industrial look (see photo), but it allowed me to attach a sheet metal platform, plastic feet and a jack input to it, without drilling (just insert a nail into an existing hole and wiggle a bit to widen it).
The amp is an old Sonic Impact battery powered unit that I velcro'ed to the piece of sheet metal which I bolted to the base of the basket (nothing adhesive sticks well to the mesh). A newer version of the amp is available on Amazon from Parts Express (Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital AC/DC Amplifier). The stereo input jack fit easily on top and I can attach a battery-powered MP3 player or Bluetooth receiver to it. The handle is a cheap luggage replacement I found on Amazon, and I bolted four plastic bumpers to the underside to keep the metal from scratching whatever surface it's sitting on.
So far the speakers are very secure being wedged into the basket without screws, although the speaker covers do tend to pop off (maybe some more velcro there). We've taken the boombox to the beach several times; it works and sounds great. Not a ton of volume and a bare minimum of bass but for private listening it sounds fantastic.
After hooking them up and throwing on some tunes, I was not initially impressed. The sound was not nearly as robust as the speakers I replaced, but I realized that was not a realistic expectation. Out of the box I heard pretty good highs and fair mids, but almost no bass. I really need strong bass to enhance my movie watching, and I also listen to fair amount of bottom-heavy music. Because my little Onkyo supports a powered sub, I decided to add the Theater Solutions SUB8S to fit discreetly under the dresser.
In the 2 days it took the sub to arrive, I burned in the speakers with a wide variety of music to really open up the sound, and they responded amazingly well. By the time I hooked up the sub, I had crystal clear highs and dialogue, super-punchy mids, and the Micca's own bass was becoming more noticeable. The sub just added the icing on the cake, giving me the rumbling lows needed for a full cinema sound and bass-rich music playback.
I'm thoroughly satisfied with this purchase. For a midsized bedroom these give the perfect amount of quality sound. If I ever wanted to upgrade I might step up to the Cambridge Soundworks Minx 12 which are similar size to these for about 5 times the cost. But I may never have the need, I'm loving these babies more and more with each listen.
