Select two speakers:
ELAC Uni-fi UB5 vs. MartinLogan Motion 40i
ELAC Uni-fi UB5 Bookshelf Speakers
The ”Uni-fi” in this speaker’s name comes from its unique driver arrangement. Using a design commonly associated with KEF, ELAC uses a concentric driver that places a 1” soft dome tweeter in the middle of a 4” midrange cone driver. This allows high and midrange sounds to reach your ears at exactly the same time, for a superior soundstage and imaging.
MartinLogan Motion 40i Tower Speaker
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.
- The front face of the MartinLogan Motion 40i is approximately 217.60% larger than that of the ELAC Uni-fi UB5.
- The depth of the MartinLogan Motion 40i is approximately 5.03% deeper than that of the ELAC Uni-fi UB5.
- The spatial volume of the MartinLogan Motion 40i Tower Speaker is approximately 233.56% greater than that of the ELAC Uni-fi UB5 Bookshelf Speakers.
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.
Our website will allow you to compare the sizes of bookshelf, satellite, tower, and center channel speakers and subwoofers for audiophile and home theater usage. We will keep adding new speakers in response to user feedback. Also, please check out our list of review links below each speaker.
