F1 High-Performance Folded Motion® Floorstanding Speaker
The Foundation F1 is perfect for those desiring the performance of a floorstanding speaker but would prefer a more compact design.
Offering a tighter footprint than the larger Foundation F2, the Foundation F1 is ideal for those with smaller spaces. The star of the show is the Gen2 Obsidian Folded Motion Tweeter S working in tandem with the Folded Motion Waveguide for shocking levels of clarity, detail, and immersion. Filling out the sound are custom 5.5” aluminum drivers that combine high strength and low mass for impressive speed and detail. Foundation F1 is a great choice for high performance in modestly sized rooms.
Legendary MartinLogan Sound
MartinLogan speakers are known for their exceptional articulation, detail and realism, regardless of the listening environment. By using advanced thin-film technologies and Controlled Dispersion, MartinLogan delivers a unique and unparalleled listening experience that is not commonly found in other speakers.
Gen2 Obsidian Folded Motion Tweeter S
The Gen2 FMT S offers effortless performance, unmatched by conventional technologies. By folding thin film material, MartinLogan is able to pack more surface area into a small space. Large surface area, light weight and low excursion means an incredibly fast and responsive tweeter capable of reproducing the most nuanced content with stunning detail and clarity.
Folded Motion Waveguide
Enhances the Controlled Dispersion of the Gen2 Folded Motion Tweeter S, blanketing the listening area with incredible detail and precision. Avoids performance robbing room reflections and provides a more consistent sound across a wider seating area.
The culmination of combining extensive anechoic, in-room measurements, and multiple blind listening tests with the low distortion philosophy of MartinLogan's signature Vojtko Crossover. Through this process each speaker was refined to achieve the best performance.
Room acoustics are vital, as everything in the listening room has an impact on speaker performance. MartinLogan minimizes these harmful effects by focusing the sound into the listening area, increasing flexibility, clarity, and placement options, regardless of the room's design.
Floor Bounce Compensation
Bringing studio reference sound to reality with precision woofer placement and crossover tuning, MartinLogan engineers have designed the tower models to produce a more natural and full sound by taking advantage of a constant found in all listening rooms the floor!
Aluminum Midrange and Bass Drivers
Using trickle down technology from MartinLogan's own Motion XT and Motion Series, the Motion Foundation Series uses the exceptional properties of Aluminum to maximize clarity, detail, and output from the midrange and bass drivers.
Stealth mounting tabs securely hold the grilles in place allowing the listener to customize the appearance of each speaker. Creating a unique look; leaving the grilles on, off, or even rotating them to change the grain of the fabric providing maximum aesthetic control.
Foundation® series towers feature adjustable spikes to level the speaker out for optimal performance and stability on carpeted surfaces. The included rubber foot installs over the spike to provide protection when installing the speakers on hard surface flooring.
