Motion 30 & 50XT Center Channel Speakers
The Motion 30 & 50XT center channel speakers are designed to match the elegant aesthetic of the Motion 20, 40 & 60XT floorstanding speakers and are voice-matched with the entire Motion Series to allow listeners to build a two-channel or home theater system piece-by-piece. These new speakers feature rounded edges, a gently tapered top, and luscious high-gloss finishes.
Both center channels combine high-excursion, black aluminum cone woofers and low-turbulence, rear-firing bass ports. Motion 30 speakers features 5.5-inch drivers paired with an advanced Folded Motion tweeter; Motion 50XT speakers features 6.5-inch woofers for deeper bass extension, paired with our larger Folded Motion XT tweeter. Each model creates clear, highly dynamic, and precise sound. Premium, five-way binding posts assure a solid connection.
Minimalistic Design Featuring Luxurious Real-Wood
Inspired by MartinLogan’s ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion® Series was created to provide stunning sound for your ultimate-performance home theater or stereo. MartinLogan’s dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends our exquisite Folded Motion™ transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.
Motion 30 is available in three luxurious high-gloss finishes; Piano Black, White or Black Cherrywood. The high-gloss black cherrywood finish has deep cherry undertones and appears almost black in low light, giving them a unique and understated elegance that blends into any environment.
Motion 50XT is available in Piano Black and Black Cherrywood.
