Select two speakers:
MartinLogan Motion 15i vs. Micca MB42X
MartinLogan Motion 15i Bookshelf Speaker
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.
Micca MB42X Bookshelf Speakers
Before the MB42X, there was a popular crossover mod for the older MB42 speakers, making them sound amazing for the price. These are essentially MB42s with the improved crossover built-in (which is a good thing). Other upgrades are cosmetic, including a tweaked cabinet shape, graphite finish, and magnetic grills.
- The front face of the MartinLogan Motion 15i is approximately 40.69% larger than that of the Micca MB42X.
- The depth of the MartinLogan Motion 15i is approximately 46.15% deeper than that of the Micca MB42X.
- The spatial volume of the MartinLogan Motion 15i is approximately 105.62% greater than that of the Micca MB42X.
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 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.
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.
