Product Highlights

    Audiophile Performance without an audiophile price

    Inspired by the clarity and detail of our ultra–high–end electrostatic loudspeakers, Motion 8 features an exquisite Folded Motion® tweeter and powerful bass technology in a compact and affordable package. Key to Motion 8’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–certain to inspire envy in audiophiles and non–audiophiles alike.

    Engineering Genius

    What makes the Motion Series sound so amazing? MartinLogan's dedicated in–house engineering team started by utilizing and refining the most advanced, compact technologies and combining them with innovative engineering. The result is an emotionally engaging sound that rivals (and most times trounces) traditional loudspeakers of similar size and price. Although our engineers won't reveal exactly how they make the sausage, here are a few technologies that help give MartinLogan Motion Series such a unique sound:

    Folded Motion™ Tweeter

    Never settle.</span> That's exactly what's on the minds of our engineers when they develop every MartinLogan speaker. Just take a look at the innovative Folded Motion Tweeter. This exotic tweeter—you know, similar to other tweeter technologies found on ultra–high–end speakers—helps gives Motion speakers their fantastically realistic highs. Lighting fast transient response, combined with a large surface area (8–times that of a typical 1" dome tweeter) creates clear, highly dynamic and precise sound.

    This is one sweet tweeter.

    The 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 lighting fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.

    Curve Appeal

    Complementing Motion's sonic accuracy is elegant yet understated styling. Flawless high–gloss, piano black finishes and subtle curves, along with our signature perforated grille, give Motion Series speakers an elegant and timeless look. Tower models feature a real–wood veneer finish and a stylish aesthetic certain to blend with any decor.

    The curves also serve a purpose; they allow Motion compact bookshelves to mount at two different angles with the included wall bracket. This means you can point sound directly toward the desired listening area for high or low wall mounting applications. Beauty and brains!

    Hook–ups, Simplified.

    Convenient push–style speaker terminals and curved inserts help guide speaker wire effortlessly into place. The rubber end caps on the terminal are also removable for the use of banana plugs instead of bare wire. So simple, you'll actually enjoy hooking up these speakers.
