Similar to the MartinLogan 50XTi, but slightly smaller, with 5.25” woofers, this center channel still has large-speaker presence, with a respectable low end response of 65Hz. Inclusion of the Folded Motion AMT-style tweeter gives this speaker clarity and can handle louder volume levels with little evidence of compression.

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.
