Step Up to Accurate Low Frequency Power
Building on the success of the original Dynamo powered subwoofer, MartinLogan's designers went on to create the compact, powerful Dynamo 700.
Featuring a high-current 300-watt RMS, 600-watt peak amplifier and 10" cone driver, the Dynamo 700 delivers deep, tight, effortless bass for home theater or stereo music. Its standard down-firing configuration quickly converts into a front-firing setup for folks who prefer a “hidden” installation.
The finishing touch is Dynamo's built in wireless receiver wireless receiver (for use with the addition of the SWT-1 wireless transmitter, sold separately). This great features is just the ticket for bass aficionados who want a clean, minimalist look in the room with no cables in sight
Affordable Low-Bass Muscle
MartinLogan never lets up! Thanks to the high-end loudspeaker manufacturer's ceaseless research into driver, amplifier, cabinet, and control technologies, it has developed a highly affordable solution for enthusiasts of deep bass. The new family of Dynamo powered subwoofers delivers the low frequency muscle that today's movies and music requires, with an emphasis on highly accurate reproduction.
Front-Firing or Down-Firing Flexibility
Dynamo is user-configurable for either front- or down-firing operation. Just pick up the sub, flip it over 90 degrees on the included stand, and you've changed front front-firing to down-firing, or vice versa. Whether in a corner, behind furniture, or installed in a cabinet, your Dynamo will sound superb.
Inverse Mathematical Equalization
An IME (inverse mathematical equalization) filter is derived from the inverse of the unfiltered driver response. Precision IME filtering yields extremely accurate low-frequency response – far superior to that provided by the simple second-order, high-Q filters typical of competitively priced subwoofers.
Seamless System Integration
Dynamo's connections and controls are designed to enable easy, seamless integration with any stereo music or multi-channel home theater system. It's main left/right line-level inputs feed into a precision low-pass filter. For systems in which a surround processor supplies the crossover, Dynamo provides an LFE input that completely bypasses its internal filters.
This capability together with flexible crossover controls ensures that Dynamo can deliver excellent bass from any location in your room. No other subwoofer in its class offers Dynamo's combination of bass extension, power, and detail.
MiniETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) Spikes
The Dynamo is supplied with sturdy, 1/4-20 MiniETC™ spikes, which can be used in place of the standard feet to enhance stability on thick carpets or to create tighter coupling between speaker and floor.
Although ports are a convenient and cost-effective way of increasing low-frequency output, they rely on resonant energy in a way that impairs bass quality. A good sealed system will exhibit less transient-blurring group delay while maintaining smooth, consistent response regardless of output level or voice-coil temperature. Listen carefully to the sound of a bass drum, and you'll hear the difference.
