Floorstanding Speakers

MartinLogan Motion 20 and 40 Tower Speakers

Floor standing speakers featuring proprietary Folded Motion transducers, elegant aesthetics, and powerful bass performance.

MartinLogan announced the Motion 20 and Motion 40 floor standing speaker, which replace the Motion 10 and Motion 12 models. Both new floors standing models benefit from a number of design and performance enhancements including nearly twice the internal volume over previous models (resulting in extended bass performance) and elegantly sophisticated aesthetics with rounded edges and a gently tapered top, all wrapped in a high-gloss piano-black finish.

MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house design and engineering team carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity. Key to the Motion Series sonic performance is the unique Folded Motion tweeter (similar to tweeter technologies found in ultra expensive speakers), precision high-end Vojtko crossovers, powerful woofers, and acoustically inspired cabinet design.

The Motion 20 and Motion 40 are bi-wire capable and feature premium five-way binding posts. A perforated metal grille accentuates the speaker’s powerful elegance while oversized 5.5-inch and 6.5-inch black aluminum cone woofers (on the 20 and 40 respectively) paired with a rear firing bass port adds extra punch in the lower frequencies. The oversized woofer design also creates increased cone area for higher output and better bass response. Reinforced solid internal bracing dramatically reduces internal resonances and standing waves.

Bass drivers in both models are located near the bottom of the speaker while mid-range drivers and Folded Motion tweeters are orientated near the top. This driver arrangement offers a strong visual statement but also provides solid low-frequency reinforcement, superb dispersion characteristics and audiophile-quality high-frequency performance.

 

Compatibility with other MartinLogan speakers adds versatility to listeners building their system piece by piece. Whether it’s a two-channel or home theater application, the Motion Series 20 and Motion 40 are voice-matched to the Motion FX, Motion 8 and other Motion Series speakers which can be integrated to create a richly detailed high-performance surround sound system.
