Our most ambitious acoustic and aesthetic development in MartinLogan's 40-year history. Motion® Series defines elegance and performance by leveraging exclusive technologies and decades of experience. The result is a loudspeaker collection that is not just an upgrade of its predecessor, but a whole new level of quality and excellence.
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 XT
The Gen2 Obsidian FMT XT Tweeter has been upgraded with a larger motor to provide higher output and lower distortion. The FMT XT offers the most effortless and detailed sound in the Motion range with a 40% increase in surface area over our signature FMT. Outside of our legendary Electrostatic speakers, these new tweeters provide our cleanest, most detailed and accurate high frequency presentation to date.
Folded Motion® Waveguide
After an extensive evaluation of nearly 50 design options, the Folded Motion® Waveguide profile was meticulously chosen to harmoniously align the tweeters output with the dispersion of the midrange drivers, enhancing the performance of our already incredible Gen2 Folded Motion® Tweeters. The Folded Motion® Waveguide helps blanket the listening area with evenly distributed detail and precision, ensuring an optimal experience for everyone. The waveguide also enhances the Controlled Dispersion output of the tweeter, offering generous coverage while minimizing unwanted room reflections.
Any time your speaker reflects sound off of a surface in your room, it changes the sound in some way. One of the most harmful changes that occurs is the result of the first reflection point, or the first point at which sound begins to bounce off the walls or other surfaces in the room. Controlled Dispersion minimizes these sound degrading early reflections by controlling the spread of sound from the tweeter into the room, enhancing your listening experience with greater clarity, and expanded placement options in any room.
Nomex®-Reinforced Kevlar® Midrange
The Nomex®-Reinforced Kevlar® Mid-bass in the Motion® XT B100 offers a perfect balance of lightweight, strength, anti-resonance and anti-ringing properties for unparalleled sound quality. When combined with the Gen2 Obsidian FMT XT, the clarity of vocals, dialogue and instrumental accuracy is unmatched at any volume. The seamless integration with Motion® XT CI products makes creating custom solutions effortless.
