Real MartinLogan Sound in a Bookshelf Speaker
The Motion LX16 extends the award-winning Motion Series sound to a more traditional bookshelf package, featuring MartinLogan's advanced resolution Folded Motion™ tweeter, a low-distortion 5.25" high-excursion black-aluminum woofer, and low-turbulence rear-firing bass port for extended bass performance.
Minimalistic Design Featuring Luxurious Real-Wood
Inspired by MartinLogan's ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion Series was created to provide stunning sound for your ultimate-performance home theater or stereo. MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends the company's exquisite Folded Motion transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
For the Motion LX16, MartinLogan's signature perforated steel grille appears to float in front of the solidly constructed 3/4-inch thick MDF cabinets. Hidden discretely underneath the grille, the drivers are held securely in place by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle.
Folded Motion tweeters and woofers are blended with an advanced topology crossover network featuring polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom wound inductors, and thermal and current protection. The Motion LX Series also features recessed custom 5-way binding posts for connection versatility.
Folded Motion Tweeter
MartinLogan's exclusive and highly innovative Folded Motion Tweeter helps gives the LX16 fantastically realistic highs. Lightning fast transient response, combined with a large surface area (several times that of a typical 1" dome tweeter) creates clear, highly dynamic, and precise sound.
The Folded Motion Tweeter works by moving air (which creates sound) perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm 'squeezes' air and requires almost 90 percent less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lighting fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
The Motion LX16 is available in two luxurious high-gloss finishes – Piano Black and Black Cherrywood. The new high-gloss Black Cherrywood finish has deep cherry undertones and appears almost black in low light, giving the cabinets a unique and understated elegance that blends into any environment.
A 3/18-16 threaded insert is located on the back of the Motion LX16 to accommodate installations where stand or wall mounting is desired.
