An in-ceiling speaker that will floor you
When we first heard MartingLogan's ElectroMotion® R in-ceiling speakers, we were very impressed. But when the Vanquish showed up, well, we were simply floored. This beast of an in-ceiling speaker delivers some of the finest music and movie sound you're likely to ever hear — especially from a nearly invisible source. As part of MartinLogan's Stealth™ Architectural Series, the Vanquish receives the same attention to detail and advanced technologies as their highly regarded bookshelf and floor-standing speakers. Use a pair of Vanquish to create a space-saving, ultra-high performance stereo system, or as left, right, center, and surround speakers for a killer, low-profile home theater.
Folded Motion XT tweeter for detailed sound
One reason the Vanquish sounds so good is MartinLogan's innovative Folded Motion XT tweeter. Instead of a dome or cone, it uses a pleated diaphragm that works similarly to an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound. Because it requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, response time is drastically reduced, along with distortion. The diaphragm's increased surface area also provides wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and highly accurate soundstage. Music and movies will sound amazingly detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness.
Enjoy awesome sound quality from a speaker that disappears into your ceiling
Solid construction, powerful performance
The speaker's deep, high-definition bass comes courtesy of an 8" aluminum cone woofer mounted in a rigid, cast-aluminum basket that minimizes unwanted resonance. Dual 3-1/2" drivers supply clear, articulate midrange that blends seamlessly with the Folded Motion XT tweeter. A hand-built, audiophile-grade crossover ensures precise driver integration for high-accuracy sound.
Beneath the low-profile grille, a thick, vibration-resistant MDF baffle helps lock the drivers securely in place. The baffle, drivers, and crossover are all housed within a solid one-piece die-cast aluminum chassis to provide outstanding strength and durability. A robust mounting-lock system provides firm coupling of the speaker's chassis to the ceiling.
A hand-built, premium-quality crossover and heavy-duty construction contribute to the superb sound of the Vanquish.
