Motion® 12 & 10 Floorstanding Speakers

Motion 10 & 12 tower speakers are the original floorstanding speaker models in MartinLogan's award-winning Motion® Series. Voice-matched with the entire Motion Series products, they feature our advanced resolution Folded Motion™ tweeter and have been designed with a unique aesthetic unlike anything you've seen before.

Engineering Genius

What makes the Motion Series sound so amazing? MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineering team started by utilizing and refining the most advanced, compact technologies and combining them with innovative engineering. The result is an emotionally engaging sound that rivals (and most times trounces) traditional loudspeakers of similar size and price. Although our engineers won't reveal exactly how they make the sausage, here are a few technologies that help give MartinLogan Motion Series such a unique sound:

Folded Motion™ Tweeter

Never settle. That's exactly what's on the minds of our engineers when they develop every MartinLogan speaker. Just take a look at the innovative Folded Motion Tweeter. This exotic tweeter—you know, similar to other tweeter technologies found on ultra-high-end speakers—helps gives Motion speakers their fantastically realistic highs. Lightning fast transient response, combined with a large surface area (8-times that of a typical 1" dome tweeter) creates clear, highly dynamic and precise sound.

This is one sweet tweeter.
The Folded Motion Tweeter works by moving air (which creates sound) perpendicular to the folded ridges of the diaphragm, similar to how an accordion works. This extremely low mass diaphragm "squeezes" air and requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, which drastically minimizes distortion while providing a lightning fast response time. The increased surface area also provides a wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and carefully etched sound stage.
