Mirage Model M-3si
Manufactured by *API in Canada 1989-92
Original price: $2,800 pr.

The Mirage story began in 1979 with Jeff Percy, Jeff Soltysek and Patrick Dempster. Soon after that, famous speaker Designer Kevin Voecks, of Revel and Snell Acoustics fame, came on board to create the initial Mirage designs, and the rest is audio history.
The award winning "M" line of Mirage (Audio Products International / *API) Canada was their Top-of-the line audio products
* Note: I also have a pair of Mirage M-5si... see other ad

Design: Bipolar radiator, vented, half-hemispherical cabinet design
The "si" version of the M3's featured a 8oz heavier magnet on the woofer (28oz vs 20oz), a more sophisticated crossover design, PTH (Pure Titanium Hybrid) tweeters, carbon impregnated midrange and woofer cones and a beefed up internal cabinet with thicker outer walls and internal bracing.

Many enthusiasts say the M-3si are more refined sounding and punchier than the original M-1's
