Overview

Our take on the MartinLogan Dynamo™ 1600X

If you're into football analogies, you might say the MartinLogan Dynamo 1600X is like a great lineman: it's big, it hits hard, and it keeps it clean. This flagship model in the Dynamo Series brings the bass with a high-excursion 15" woofer powered by a muscular 900-watt amplifier. And it has some cool app-based conveniences that make it easier than ever to set up and adjust.

Big-time bass for big rooms

If you're into football analogies, you might say the MartinLogan Dynamo 1600X is like a great lineman: it's big, it hits hard, and it keeps it clean. This flagship model in the Dynamo Series brings the bass with a high-excursion 15" woofer powered by a muscular 900-watt amplifier. And it has some cool app-based conveniences that make it easier than ever to set up and adjust.

Anthem Room Correction (ARC) automatically fixes room acoustics problems

Download the free ARC Mobile app to your iOS® or Android™ phone or tablet. Your device takes bass measurements using its built-in microphone, analyzes the signal to find acoustic irregularities, and automatically applies correction. The result? Smooth, well-balanced bass that's tailored to your specific room, furnishings, and audio system.

A handy Bluetooth® control app

Once you get the Dynamo 1600X placed in your room, you're not likely to have to strain to reach its back-panel controls — it actually has relatively few of those. Instead, you'll use MartinLogan's Subwoofer Control app, which connects the sub to your phone via Bluetooth, so you can make any necessary adjustments from the comfort of your favorite listening seat. That includes volume and preset EQ curves, as well as tweakier adjustments like phase and crossover.

MartinLogan Dynamo 1100X converts from down- to front-firing

Flexible design features

The Dynamo 1600X comes set up from the factory with its woofer facing downward. But if you're installing it in an enclosed cabinet you might want to make that woofer face forward instead. The sub's clever design lets you easily switch the placement of its isolation feet to make the woofer front-firing. It even comes with a grille to cover the woofer in this configuration.

If you're placing the sub on thick carpeting, you can remove the rubber feet to expose built-in ETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) spikes, which help stabilize the sub and give you potentially tighter-sounding bass.

Want to make it wireless?

Add MartinLogan's optional SWT-X wireless transmitter/receiver system to lose the signal cables entirely. The kit's receiver plugs directly into a port on the back of the subwoofer. (Remember, you'll still need to plug this baby into an AC outlet.)
