Larger Gen 2 Folded Motion Tweeter with Improved Dispersion
The completely redone Gen 2 Folded Motion XT tweeter is even faster and lower in distortion than ever before. With over twice the surface area of the Motion tweeter, the XT version is even more transparent. The new waveguide improves dispersion to fill up your room with that famous MartinLogan clarity.
Fantastic New Kevlar & Nomex Driver Design
The combination Kevlar and Nomex driver to our ears sounds fantastic. When you couple the subtle midrange nuances it allows you to hear with the extremely transparent folded motion XT tweeter, you can tell MartinLogan got close to the sound of their true electrostatics with these new models
High Sensitivity for Great Dynamics
When you couple the multiple bass drivers and high sensitivity, you get a floor stander that can produce serious dynamics and deep bass
Motion XT F200 Floorstanding Speakers
For the two tower XT models, they all use 3 aluminum cone bass drivers coupled with that great Nomex Reinforced Kevlar midrange and the larger XT tweeter. The big difference between the XT F100 and XT F200 is the XT F100 uses 3 6.5” drivers while the XT F200 uses 3 8” versions. The bigger woofers get you about 4 Hz more extension down to 27Hz compared to 31Hz, but like the other series, the bigger ones to our ears just had far more slam even though they have the same great sensitivity rating of 92db.
The Motion Series is inspired by the performance of our ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers and is perfect for music or home cinema lovers.

Gen2 Folded Motion Tweeter:
The latest thin-film Gen2 FMT offers effortless performance unmatched by conventional technologies. Utilizing a lightweight material with more surface area, the FMT brings the audience's favorite content to life with the highest levels of detail and accuracy.
Room acoustics are vital, as everything in the listening room impacts speaker performance. MartinLogan minimizes these harmful effects by focusing the sound into the listening area, increasing flexibility, clarity, and placement options, regardless of the room's design.
Woven Fiberglass Midrange:
The lightweight and strong Woven Fiberglass midrange in the Motion Series is perfectly suited for keeping pace with Motion's Gen2 FMT, providing crystal clear dialogue, vocals, and lifelike instrumentals. Seamlessly blends with Motion CI products to make creating custom solutions easy.
F.A.S.T. Foot (Tower Models):
Tower models feature tool-less height adjustability utilizing rubber feet or spikes, allowing the user to level the speaker for maximum stability on any floor perfectly. Built-in anti-vibration properties lower distortion by reducing 'judders' between the speaker and the floor, leaving nothing but pure sound.
Enhanced Cabinet Bracing:
The latest Motion Series cabinetry is our quietest design yet, maximizing the performance of the proprietary audio technologies.
Single Cannon Bass Ports (Tower Models):
The bottom-mounted "Single Cannon" bass port provides deeper, cleaner, and more powerful bass across a wider range of placement options.
Floor Bounce Compensation (Tower Models):
Bringing studio reference sound to reality with precision woofer placement and crossover tuning, MartinLogan engineers have designed their tower models to produce a more natural and full sound by taking advantage of a constant found in all listening rooms; the floor!
The culmination of combining extensive anechoic measurements, proprietary modeling software, in-room measurements, and multiple blind listening tests with the low distortion philosophy of MartinLogan's signature Vojtko Crossover. Through this process, each speaker was refined to achieve the best real-world performance.
