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.

The 35XTi is the highest-end bookshelf model in the MartinLogan Motion i speaker line. Like other speakers in this line, they exhibit remarkable presence and clarity, with AMT tweeters and aluminum-cone woofers. The Motion line uses Vojtko crossovers, which MartinLogan claims is a design philosophy, but as far as we can tell are just good standard crossovers.

Please Note: 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 comparisons are based on a cube 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.
