MartinLogan Motion XT CI speakers sound incredible in any room. Regardless of the environment, our speakers just sound better, more articulate, more detailed, and more realistic. With Controlled Dispersion and one of the most responsive tweeters in the industry, our in-wall and in-ceiling models can compete with and often exceed the performance of traditional cabinet speakers.
No matter which Motion XT CI speaker you choose for your room, rest assured they are designed to provide a consistently high level of performance and are easily compatible with other ML speakers for your unique listening space.
The XTW6 takes one of the most popular styles of in-wall speaker 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.
MartinLogan's signature Folded Motion Tweeter utilizes an extremely low-mass diaphragm that "squeezes" air, thus requiring significantly less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter. Its folded design allows for a much larger surface area, controlled dispersion characteristics, and vanishingly low distortion. It's a miracle of audio engineering that delivers much of the high-frequency detail, speed and response of a large, dynamic electrostatic panel in a small space. Folded Motion XT tweeters advance thin-film transducer technology even further with a 40% larger radiating surface and 80x30-degree controlled dispersion. This upgrade increases audible bandwidth without sacrificing detail and reduces distortion to an incredibly low level while increasing efficiency and the tweeter's already lightning-fast response time. The result is superior realism and alarming specificity that is aurally astounding, and only by MartinLogan.
All Motion XT CI speakers feature very lightweight woven Kevlar cones specifically engineered to keep pace with the lightning speed of our highest performance XT FMT. While these high-performance drivers offer both increased rigidity and lightness, we took an extra step by adding a special Nomex layer on the back side of the woofer material increasing clarity and realism by reducing resonance and ringing. This layer is not something you can see after installation, but it matters to the performance of the speaker, so it matters to us.
Vojtko Crossovers are named after MartinLogan's chief audio technologist, Joe Vojtko. His unique approach to crossover design is just as crucial to MartinLogan's Truth in Sound as are their innovative electrostatic and Folded Motion thin-film driver technologies. A Vojtko Crossover isn't just a set of design requirements - it's a philosophy. Hand-built from the highest quality components, they avoid overly complex topologies and have a straightforward objective: breathtaking realism.
