Stereo separation is merely the the separation of sounds through a left and right speaker. When listening to the music you may hear the drums through the right speaker and the guitar through the left, this separation mimics the spatial separation within the studio where the music is recorded. This is a very small speaker, it does have two speakers inside, but they are so close together that any stereo separation you get is very hard to hear.

This speaker also comes in a variety of catchy colors, black, white, blue, red and yellow and the speaker is designed for many uses in the backyard, in the car or in the house.
