Motif X Overview

The Motif X from Martin Logan has been described as one of the most accomplished electro-static on-wall speakers, and utilises highly advanced electrostatic and Folded Motion design methods to truly enhance and maximise sonic performance and installation flexibility.

XStat™ Transducer & Folded Motion™ Tweeter

The Motif X is unique in that it makes use of a folded motion tweeter, which is located directly behind the XStat electrostatic panel in an equally unique housing to give the aesthetic appearance of a seamless electrostatic panel. This irradiates the need for a bulky and invasive tweeter housing on the front of the ESL panel. The Motif X removed diffraction within the high frequencies.

Curvilinear Line Source Electrostatic Panel

Advanced MicroPerf stator technology dramatically increases the sound-producing area of MartinLogan's latest-generation CLS™ electrostatic transducer. This increase in effective radiating area translates to higher efficiency and an even more effortless, unlimited dynamic presentation. The XStat pulls no punches!

But there's more to it than just putting more holes in the stators, which must maintain uniform spacing in front of and behind the diaphragm to exacting tolerances. They cannot flex. Motif X firmly anchors the transducer's working elements—stators and diaphragm—around their periphery, while ClearSpar™ spacers stiffen the assembly further across its width. ClearSpars enable precise, consistent tensioning of the Vacuum Bonded diaphragm without obstructing the floating, see-through look that is the visual hallmark of MartinLogan electrostats.

 

In the end, a speaker cannot outperform the signal feeding it. MartinLogan's state-of-the-art toroidal transformer and electrical interface engineering ensure an absolutely transparent link from amplifier to electrostatic panel. The result is sound of unparalleled purity, precision, clarity, and openness—the next best thing to no speaker at all.

Easy Installation & Adjustability

A easy to install, low-voltage DC power supply eliminates the need for a traditional, heavy IEC power cord and increases installation flexibility. MartinLogan's proprietary toolless binding posts make cable connection and management a breeze. Each speaker also includes a single-pivot stand that enables easy installation on a set-top, floor or shelf. Additionally, Motif X may horizontally/vertically mounted to a wall (under or beside a plasma screen, for example).

Low-Distortion Aluminum-Cone Woofers

By eliminating cone flexure, aluminum diaphragms help our advanced-technology woofers achieve the very low distortion necessary for proper blending with MartinLogan electrostatic panels.

Advanced Vojtko Filtering

Carefully hand-built using only the finest polypropylene capacitors and air-core coils, the crossover employ's MartinLogan's proprietary Vojtko topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration. This precision-tuned network preserves even the most microscopic sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source.

On-Wall/Off-Wall Acoustic Contour Switch

Motif features a unique 'on-wall/off-wall' switch that tailors acoustic equalization to either installation option. Simply set this switch to On-Wall if mounting to a surface. Set the switch to Off-Wall if the Motif is more than four inches from a wall. Setting this switch ensures that you will achieve total system matching in even the most diverse setups (such as systems mixing on-wall and off-wall installations
