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.
