11.40” × 6.80” × 9.50”
290 mm × 173 mm × 241 mm

A midsized rear-ported bookshelf, featuring a 5.25” low-frequency transducer and a folded motion high frequency transducer, which MartinLogan claims replicates much of the performance of their high-end elecrostatic speakers. May need to be paired with a subwoofer if sub-60Hz bass is a priority.

43.00” × 10.94” × 17.50”
1092 mm × 278 mm × 444 mm

Large, classically-styled tower speakers with an impressive frequency response (35Hz - 21kHz +/- 3dB). These speakers can be played quite loudly without distortion and handle a variety of sources well, although some may wish for a bit smoother-sounding treble.
