The Motion LX16 uses a 5-1/4" aluminum cone mid/woofer and MartinLogan's innovative Folded Motion tweeter for smooth and detailed full-range sound.
A compact speaker with a big voice
MartinLogan's Motion LX16 bookshelf speaker will reward you with stunningly natural, transparent sound whether you use a single pair to create a high-quality stereo music system, or build a multi-channel home theater around them with a matching subwoofer. And it's a treat for the eyes. The LX16's beautiful furniture-grade, high-gloss black finish and sleek, magnetically attached perforated steel grille lend a stylish look to any room you put it in. This member of MartinLogan's award-winning Motion® series features advanced speaker technologies like the Folded Motion™ tweeter. Though small in size, the Motion LX16 delivers huge musical enjoyment.
Folded Motion tweeter for detailed sound
MartinLogan's innovative Folded Motion tweeter uses a pleated diaphragm that works like an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound. It requires about 90% less excursion than a typical 1" dome tweeter, resulting in quicker response time and much lower distortion. The tweeter's controlled sound dispersion creates a focused soundstage with a real sense of presence. Music sounds amazingly detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness.
Bass that keeps pace
The Motion LX16 uses a 5-1/4" aluminum cone woofer to supply fast, clean midrange and lower-mid frequencies that blend in seamlessly with the Folded Motion tweeter. A low-turbulence rear-firing port extends bass performance, but keeps it tight and tuneful.
