Looking for smooth, dynamic home theater sound from a speaker you can easily mount on the wall? MartinLogan's elegant Motion 6 may be just the ticket. Because you can orient this versatile speaker horizontally or vertically, it makes a great center channel companion to other wall-mountable members of the Motion series, such as the Motion 2 or Motion 4. But you can also use a trio of these speakers across your front left, center, and right channels for a seamless front soundstage.
The distinctive sound of the Motion series starts with MartinLogan's Folded Motion tweeter. Rather than a dome or cone driver, this 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 and movie soundtracks sound amazingly detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness.
A stylish, curved cabinet
The tweeter is flanked by two low-mass 3-1/2" poly cone woofers that supply accurate mids and midbass. All three drivers are mounted in an eye-catching curved cabinet that's finished in classic high-gloss piano black. The Motion 6's subtle, modern lines complement just about any décor.
Be sure you get enough bass
This speaker shines when it comes to accurate mids and highs, but for any kind of bass we strongly recommend a powered subwoofer, like one of MartinLogan's excellent models.
