Inspired by MartinLogan's high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion Series was created to provide stunning sound for your ultimate-performance home theater or stereo. MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends their exquisite Folded Motion transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
Focusing on clarity and detail as MartinLogan's other high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, Motion 12 features an exquisite Folded Motion tweeter and powerful bass technology in a compact and affordable package. Key to Motion 12’s performance is the lightning fast response of the tweeter’s light-weight diaphragm combined with a large surface area (8 times that of a typical one-inch dome tweeter) which together achieve a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity. Additionally, the Motion 12’s open back dipole midrange design creates a huge, lifelike soundstage certain to inspire envy in audiophiles and non-audiophiles alike.
- Stylish DesignFeaturing real black ash wood veneer and a stylish aesthetic, the Motion 12 speakers can complement any house decoration and add style to your home speaker system.
- Folded Motion TweeterThe Folded Motion Tweeter works by moving air (which creates sound) perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm "squeezes" air and requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
- Premium ComponentsFeaturing 5.25-inch dipole mid-range and two 6.5-inch woofers, cast baskets, paper cones doped for stability and damping, Precision Vojtko crossover with custom air core coil and low DCR steel laminate inductors, and polyester film and low DF electrolytic capacitors, the Motion 12 delivers clear, highly dynamic and precise sound.
