This is the smallest floorstanding model in MartinLogan's Motion i lineup. In addition to the folded tweeter, these speakers use two 5.5” drivers, one handling midrange-bass frequencies, and the lower one dedicated to bass alone. Wide, detailed soundstage, but probably best paired with a subwoofer for home theater use.

Notice: the above comparisons are based on the dimensions of a bounding rectangle that would fit the front face of a speaker. In the case of volume, the measurements are based on a bounding box that would enclose the speaker entirely. These measurements do not take into account variations in the speaker shape, such as curves, diagonal edges, or cutaways. These measurements cannot be relied upon to measure the internal volume of the speaker.
