MartinLogan Motion LX 16The Motion LX16 is MartinLogan’s newest high-performance bookshelf speaker. The compact speaker incorporates traditional quality wood craftsmanship with extended performance improvements.

At the heart of the LX 16 is MartinLogan’s Folded Motion tweeter, a low-distortion 5.25-inch high-excursion woofer, and a low-turbulence rear-firing bass port for extended bass performance. All of this is built into a thick wood cabinet, which is hand-rubbed to a high-gloss piano black or black cherrywood finish. The high-gloss black cherrywood finish is new for the company; the red undertones appear almost black in low light environments.

A perforated steel grille, a signature of MartinLogan speakers, appears to float in front of the 3/4-inch thick cabinet. Behind the grill, a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle that sits flush with the cabinet secures the drivers. Folded Motion tweeters and woofers are seamlessly blended with an advanced topology crossover network featuring polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom wound inductors, and thermal and current protection. The Motion LX series also features custom five-way binding posts for connection versatility.

Expect the MartinLogan Motion LX16 bookshelf speakers to sell for $799.95 per pair at retail.

MartinLogan plans to give away a pair of the Motion LX16 bookshelf speakers at each stop of its Truth in Sound Tour. Check the website for the current schedule, which has stops in FL, AZ, MA, OH, NJ, MI, DE, WA, and CA.
