Dynamo 1000

The Most Powerful Dynamo Subwoofer... Ideal for Large Rooms!

WIRELESS READY.
Powerful, compact, precise wireless-ready home theater/stereo subwoofer, ideal for medium to large size rooms.

True high-end performance. Home-friendly aesthetics. And power, lots of power! In a nutshell, that's the incredible Dynamo 1000 subwoofer. Dramatic bass detail and bass attack, superb extension and room-shaking output ensure a music and home theater experience like no other subwoofer in its class can deliver. Features include a 500-watt RMS, 1,000-watt peak amplifier and 12-inch cone driver. Its standard down-firing configuration quickly (and easily!) converts into a front-firing configuration, ideal for discrete installations. Finishing touch... a wireless receiver for a 'cable-less' environment.

MartinLogan Motion 40 Speaker System

"Match the Motion 40s with a Motion 30 center channel, a pair of Motion 15 monitors for the surrounds, and the Dynamo 1000 subwoofer, and you have the makings for one of the most phenomenally cohesive, startlingly immersive home theater systems you can buy... the Dynamo 1000’s extremely powerful bass output shook with great authority and heft without being boomy... there was a constant low, foreboding rumble that the Dynamo 1000 maintained impeccably... Marvelous, MartinLogan. Absolutely marvelous. "

MartinLogan ElectroMotion ESL Speaker System

"The sound of the ESL is blissfully light and sweet and offers a near-transcendental listening experience. It’s that rare gem of a speaker that sparkles with a luster that becomes more and more enticing the longer you listen to it. Combined with the EM C2, EM FX2s, and a Dynamo 1000, it makes one of the finest-performing, most entertaining, drool-worthiest $5,000 home theater speaker systems you can buy…"

MARTINLOGAN DYNAMO 1000W REVIEW

"The MartinLogan Dynamo 1000w is a top-notch performer in nearly every regard, but we were especially pleased with its musicality. This is one of those few subwoofers that can nimbly navigate the divide between the nuanced music performance and explosive movie tracks and successfully meet the demands for both. Additionally, its ability to maintain its integrity at both low and high output levels makes it a suitable option for those with small and large rooms alike."

I've paired this beautiful sub with two Motion 12 towers for a great stereo setup!
The Dynamo 700 seemed more suitable for music listening, but when I compared the two, I decided I really liked the power of the 1000 and think it was worth the price difference. It gives very subtle and accurate bass as it's not a ported sub, and though I don't use it for home theatre, I can only imagine the sort of rumble it would produce when down firing for effects based off of the rumble I get from even soft bass lines when I turn it up loud enough:) Highly recommended.

Sonic Muscle on a budget
I have enjoyed my old Hafler system for many years now, and it's still going strong since I added my new Martin Logan Dynamo 1000 to my existing Boston Acoustics RS260 bookshelf speakers. I expect that my two Hafler XL280's will have a life extension of several more years now...I hope. I'm not much of a home theater person, however I am an avid fan of jazz music, and my new Martin Logan sub has injected a much needed dose of adrenaline into my listening experience. John Coltrane is alive again!!

Dynamo 1000
This sub has far exceeded my expectations. It delivers room shaking bass during movies and is capable of blending very subtly with music. If you are looking for a clean yet punchy sub then the Dynamo 1000 should be on your list!

sub replacement
The dynamo 1000 replaced a sunfire (true sub mk2 10" wow martin logan excellent, tight bass, cleaner sounding and no smearing in the upper bass. Well controlled upper & lower bass. The sunfire would go down to 18 hz. and a pain to blend in the system,not a problem with the dynamo.Oh the wire less, love it to death. (NO MORE WIRES).
