Product Description

Spring-Loaded Binding Posts

With easy pre-installation access, our spring-loaded binding posts feature a large 4.5mm wire access hole and connect via banana plug, pin, or 12AWG bare wire.

Micro-Perforated Grilles

All MartinLogan architectural speakers feature an ultra-low profile, paintable, micro-perforated grilles with no visible bezel for a near-invisible integration into any wall or ceiling. A series of powerful magnets hidden inside the speaker quickly secure grilles into place, reducing the risk of warping or damage during installation. Optional square grilles are available for all current MartinLogan in-ceiling speakers.

Proprietary Vojtko Crossover Networks

Vojtko Crossovers are named after MartinLogan’s chief audio technologist, Joe Vojtko.

His unique approach to crossover design is just as crucial to MartinLogan’s Truth in Sound as are our innovative electrostatic and Folded Motion thin-film driver technologies. A Vojtko Crossover isn’t just a set of design requirements; it’s a philosophy.

Vojtko Crossovers are hand-built from the highest quality components and avoid overly complex topologies. This crossover has a straightforward objective: breathtaking realism.

Hand-Selected Components

In designing each crossover topology, we take the drivers themselves into consideration. Carefully selected drivers, engineered for specific performance characteristics, are kept within their optimal frequency range by the custom Vojtko Crossover.

Each crossover is handcrafted using exceptional polypropylene and polyester capacitors, custom wound and large steel laminate low-DCR inductors, and double thick PCBs. This precision-tuned network preserves even the most microscopic sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source. It’s a recipe for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver integration.

The most critical aspect of a Vojtko Crossover design is the final voicing, always conducted in a real-world environment. This uniquely pragmatic approach guarantees that even the most amazing MartinLogan loudspeakers deliver Truth in Sound in any room, including yours.

Optional Retrofit Enclosure

All Motion XT CI in-ceiling speakers have the option for a retrofittable back can or enclosure. This helps contain the sound coming off the back of the speaker to dramatically reduce unwanted sound that can travel through the floor and up into the living space above the speaker. For those desiring increased bass output, or for when sound control is not required, you can simply choose to use the speaker without the optional enclosure so it can take full advantage of the larger air volume provided by the space in the ceiling.
