The Motion 50XT centre 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 theatre system piece-by-piece. These new speakers feature rounded edges, a gently tapered top, and luscious high-gloss finishes.
Both centre channels combine high-excursion, black aluminium cone woofers and low-turbulence, rear-firing bass ports. 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.
CRISP AND CLEAR CENTRE CHANNEL SOUND
Every word. Every nuance. Every special effect. That's what the Motion 50XT brings in spades to your home theater experience. MartinLogan's top-of-the-line Motion series centre channel speaker boasts their best Folded Motion™ XT tweeter, sophisticated crossovers, and custom bi-wire binding posts to create exceptionally immersive centre channel sound that draws you right into the on-screen action. It's a perfect centre channel partner to the Motion 60XT floor-standing speakers or Motion 35XT bookshelves.
MartinLogan's innovative Folded Motion XT tweeter uses a pleated diaphragm that works similarly to an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound. Because it requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, response time is drastically reduced along with distortion. The diaphragm's increased surface area also provides wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and highly accurate soundstage. Movie and TV dialogue sound detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness. Andthe XT tweeter boasts a 40% larger radiating surface area than the standard Folded Motion tweeter found in other MartinLogan designs, for even greater bandwidth and efficiency.
BASS THAT KEEPS PACE
The Motion 50XT uses dual 6-1/2" aluminum cone woofers to supply fast, clean midrange and powerful low frequencies that blend in seamlessly with the Folded Motion tweeter. A low-turbulence rear-firing port extends bass performance, but keeps it tight and tuneful.
BEAUTIFUL CABINET WITH AN ANGLED DESIGN
With its flawless Piano Black or Black Cherrywood high-gloss finish, gently radiused corners, and handsome perforated magnetic steel grille, the 50XT is one beautiful center channel speaker. Its angled enclosure is also a nice touch for versatility. No matter where you place it, you can direct the sound toward your ears. Place it beneath your TV firing up toward your listening position, or mount it high and flip the cabinet upside down to aim sound out into the room.
