Stealth Series: Stealth Series speakers are designed to disappear
visually into the room, and each one has a completely bezel-less, low-profile,
paintable grille for the ultimate stealth installation. Martin Logan's in-house
design and engineering team also minimized the grille's perforated metal holes
to create a more discreet look, without compromising the quality of sound. A
magnetic system secures grilles easily into place, reducing the risk of warping
or damage during installation. MartinLogan also refined the look underneath the
grille for those who want to show off their high-performance in-wall or
in-ceiling speakers. The driver complements are held securely in place by a
flush mounted 0.75" solid, high-gloss piano black baffle that hides all mounting
Two-Way Driver Design The Stealth Series Axis utilizes MartinLogan's
larger, low distortion Folded Motion XT tweeter, along with two
black-aluminum, high-excursion midbass drivers.
- Folded Motion Tweeter: MartinLogan's exquisite 1.25" x 2.4"
Folded Motion XT tweeter, with its large radiating surface, works by moving
air perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an
accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm "squeezes" air, requiring
almost 90% less excursion than a typical 1" dome tweeter. This drastically
minimizes distortion while providing lightning-fast transient response. The
increased surface area also delivers wide, yet controlled dispersion
ensuring a breathtakingly realistic and delicately etched soundstage. You
are able to rotate and aim the tweeter at your desired listening area.
- Aluminum Cone Woofers: The MartinLogan in-wall speaker employs two 5.25" aluminum cone
woofers with rubber surrounds and cast aluminum baskets for detailed
midrange and powerful midbass extension.
Advanced Crossover Network: Key to the MartinLogan Axis speaker's
sophisticated sound is an advanced topology Vojtko crossover network. Each
crossover is built on top of double-layered, super-thick, black PC boards and
constructed with the highest-quality components. Internals including massive
air-core coils, thick, high-purity 16-gauge copper wire, and low-distortion
polypropylene capacitors ensure that every nuance of the audio signal is
Rigid Chassis: The MartinLogan Axis in-wall speakers features a gloss
piano-black speaker baffle that hides all mounting hardware, a solid one-piece
cast aluminum chassis, and a bezel-less magnetic grille. The speaker has a
mounting height of 0.25" from the outer wall.
Spring-Post Terminals: The MartinLogan Axis is fitted with a set of
spring-post terminals to connect your in-wall speaker wire.
Robust Mounting System: Axis' robust mounting-lock system is coupled
with a solid aluminum chassis. When not in use, the constant-control mounting
locks are held securely within a self-contained housing. When moved into place
during installation, they couple the chassis and add rigidity to the wall. The
in-wall speaker will fit horizontally between standard 16" stud spacing.
Speaker Applications: The MartinLogan Axis in-wall loudspeaker can be
used as a center channel, front left/right speaker, surround left/right speaker,
or simply in a stereo or multiroom application.
Speaker Placement: The MartinLogan in-wall speaker offers superb
imaging and flexible placement in nearly any location. However, for best
performance and imaging place speakers equidistant from one another and avoid
physical obstructions between the speaker and primary listening position.
Break-In Period: Allow approximately 72 hours of break-in at 90 dB
(moderate listening levels) before any critical listening.
