Motion XT CI

The Motion XT CI series uses the larger surface area of the Folded Motion XT tweeter to provide even more of the clarity, output, and efficiency that our signature FMT is famous for. MartinLogan engineers have combined this incredible tweeter with high performance woven Kevlar woofers, and a more substantial chassis to elevate the performance to the next level. With Motion XT CI, the difference is in the details.

Motion XTW6-LCR

InWall speaker

The largest “LCR” model in the Motion XT CI series includes a unique feature that brings its performance level up even higher. In addition to the FMT XT tweeter, and dual 6.5” woven Kevlar Nomex-backed bass drivers, the XTW6-LCR has a dedicated 6.5” midrange driver that brings its acoustic performance to the same level as a traditional floor standing speaker. With a rotating tweeter housing, the XTW6-LCR can be used horizontally when needed, and is the perfect choice for systems desiring a higher level of performance without the large footprint of a tower speaker.

Motion XTW5-LCR

In-Wall Speaker

The smaller of the two “LCR” models in the Motion XT CI series, the XTW5-LCR functions equally well as a center, front or surround channel, or anywhere higher performance and/or a more rectangular shape is desired. A perfect complement for a flat panel TV or projector screen; the XTW5-LCR allows for flexible placement and incredible performance. Its FMT XT tweeter can be rotated to help create the sound dispersion that works best for your space.

Motion XTW6

In-Wall Speaker

The XTW6 takes one of the most popular styles of in-wall speakers to a new level of performance. Featuring the FMT XT and a 6.5” Kevlar woofer (with Nomex backer) the XTW6 offers incredible accuracy, clarity, and more controlled dispersion. With an 80° x 30° tweeter dispersion pattern, the XTW6 focuses and directs sound into the sweet spot of the room without letting it bleed into other areas of the room. This can be highly effective, especially in rooms with open floor plans or large windows, etc. allowing listeners to experience an otherwise unheard-of level of sound quality that won’t affect your room’s aesthetic.

Motion XTC8

In-Ceiling Speaker

For true next-level performance over the MC8, the XTC8 features our largest and highest performing FMT XT and a woven Kevlar woofer. These features make a noticeable improvement to the sound but also help to reduce unwanted room acoustic artifacts. With a controlled 80° x 30° dispersion, the FMT XT is a powerful tool that delivers unheard levels of realism from a CI speaker in even the most acoustically challenging rooms. The XTC8 is a great choice for a high-performance whole-house music system, or   home theater. Its nique combination of controlled dispersion allows you to control where sound is placed in a room and provides an even better experience.

Motion XTC8-HT

In-Ceiling Speaker

The “HT” version of the XTC8 features a fixed angle mounting of the tweeter and woofer in order to provide a massive improvement in performance for listeners who are farther away. This is the perfect choice for when a speaker must be mounted apart from where the listener will be standing, walking or sitting, like in a home theater. When being used as the front or center speaker in a home theater, the listener is typically around 10 feet or farther away, yet typical in-ceiling speakers point straight down placing the sweet spot directly in front of the screen. By angling the drivers toward the listener, a very noticeable increase in performance is realized. The same holds true in whole house music systems where speakers are often located farther away from where the listener spends most of their time. In situations like this, the angled “HT” models provide a very real, and very noticeable increase in performance.

Motion CI

MartinLogan Motion CI Series speakers feature our signature Folded Motion Tweeter or FMT. This innovative piece of audio technology provides incredible detail, precise clarity, clean output and high efficiency in a small but mighty package. Pairing this tweeter with lightweight woven fiberglass woofers means that Motion CI delivers a clean and balanced sound that is perfectly suited for any application. Whether you listen to music, movies or a little bit of everything, Motion CI gives you a true high-end audio experience at an affordable price.ils.

Motion MC8

In-Ceiling speaker

If you desire even more output and bass response than the MC6, the 8” MC8 is the obvious choice. Featuring the same Folded Motion Tweeter and woven fiberglass woofer as the rest of the Motion CI models, the MC8 is all about “more.” MC8 can handle more power, produce more output, and deliver more bass when the fullest performance is desired. An optional retrofittable back enclosure is available for applications where sound control is needed.

Motion MC6

In-Wall Speaker

By far the most popular size for in-ceiling speakers, the MC6 features a 6.5” woofer with higher power handling, greater output capability, and improved bass response over the smaller MC4. This model works without a built-in enclosure to allow the speaker to use more airspace for higher performance. For applications where sound control is desired, an optional retrofittable back enclosure is available separately. As with all Motion series CI speakers, the MC6 uses MartinLogan’s signature Folded Motion Tweeter for precise clarity and incredible realism to meet all your entertainment needs.

Motion MC4

In-Ceiling Speaker

The most compact in-ceiling speaker in the MartinLogan Motion series; the MC4 is also one of the most versatile. The stunning clarity of its Folded Motion Tweeter paired with a lightweight woven fiberglass woofer all wrapped 
up in a built-in enclosure means you get incredible and predictable sound exactly where you want it. Perfectly 
suited for a whole-house music system, a dedicated home theater or even as a low-profile height effect channel, 
the MC4 is a fantastic all-around performer.

Motion MC6-HT

In-Ceiling Speaker

The MC6-HT is the angled version of the MC6. By designing the speaker with a fixed tweeter and woofer angle, MartinLogan was able to tune the performance of the speaker far more accurately than universal pivoting designs. By eliminating the variable of tweeter and woofer angle, the precision Vojtko crossover network has been tuned 
for more accurate and predictable results. The MC6-HT is recommended for applications where the listener will spend most of their time not directly underneath the speaker.

Motion MW6

In-Wall Speaker

Featuring a 6.5” woofer, the MW6 is one of the most popular sizes of in-wall speakers. As with all Motion CI speakers, you will find the incredible Folded Motion Tweeter and woven fiberglass woofers that provide an incredible listening experience that won’t break the bank. Whether your goal is to create a great-sounding two-channel system, a state-of-the-art home theater or even just crystal-clear background music, the MW6 is a great performing speaker with an endless list of applications.

Motion MW4-LCR

In-Ceiling Speaker

One of the most compact in-wall speakers in MartinLogan history, the MW4-LCR expertly blends high performance and maximum flexibility. The MW4-LCR is a true “Left, Center, Right” speaker that can be 
used as a front, surround or center channel wherever high quality sound and a small footprint 
are desired.
