The slimmest MartinLogan speaker ever features a multitude of install options and will change the perception of what is possible from a low-profile speaker.
MartinLogan announced the slender Motion SLM, a wall-hanging or free standing LCR speaker that is powerful enough to stand alone and detailed enough to be used in conjunction with floor standing MartinLogan speakers. The newest from MartinLogan’s award-winning Motion Series line, the Motion SLM features dual four-inch, ultra-slim fiber cone woofers and dual four-inch high-velocity passive bass radiators, paired with a Folded Motion tweeter — all in an ultra-slim profile designed expressly for super-thin TVs.
Slim enough to complement the thinnest wall-mounted HD displays and even projection screens, the Motion SLM steps in where underpowered, unnatural sounding TV speakers fall short. The secret to the Motion SLM’s larger-than-its-size performance is the dual ultra-slim fiber cone woofers and high-velocity passive bass radiators, which provide maximum controlled low-end bass extension from an ultra-slim profile combined with the advanced resolution Folded Motion tweeter. The high-gloss black SLM cabinet is only 1.45-inches thin, for a total wall protrusion of 1.83-inches when used with magnetic grille and included wall mount bracket.
The advanced resolution Folded Motion tweeter features lightning-fast transient response and a surface area eight-times that of a typical 1″ dome tweeter, for clear, highly dynamic and precise sound. MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series as an affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends the exquisite Folded Motion transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
Designed for maximum placement flexibility, the MartinLogan Motion SLM can be placed just about anywhere for your convenience. With keyhole slots on the speaker’s back panel that attach easily to the included wall bracket, you can have the SLM wall-mounted and playing in a matter of minutes. If on-wall mounting is not appealing, each speaker also comes with a curved black-glass base that allows it to sit vertically on a shelf or in an equipment cabinet.
Thinking of going horizontal? The Folded Motion tweeter has an 80° x 80° dispersion pattern, which allows the Motion SLM to sound exactly the same in a horizontal or vertical orientation, making them ideal for Left-Center-Right (LCR) applications. Each MartinLogan’s Motion SLM includes “kick-stand” brackets that attach to the back of the cabinet, allowing them to free-stand for horizontal center channel applications. Additionally, the logo on the grille is magnetic and can move and rotate to the proper atheistically pleasing location in any orientation.
