The 40XTi fills the mid-sized slot of the three tower models in MartinLogan's Motion i series. This is still a fairly large speaker, with dual woofers and a frequency response down to 40Hz. Could be used standalone in a music setup, or with a subwoofer in a home theater to eke out every last bit of LFE information.
