MartinLogan Motion XTW6 - In-wall Ribbon Speaker
The XTW6 takes one of the most popular styles of in-wall speaker to a new level of performance. Featuring the FMT XT and a 6.5” Kevlar woofer (with Nomex backer) the XTW6 offers incredible accuracy, clarity and more controlled dispersion. With an 80° x 30° tweeter dispersion pattern, the XTW6 focuses and directs sound into the sweet spot of the room without letting it bleed into other areas of the room. This can be highly effective, especially in rooms with open floor plans or large windows, etc. allowing listeners to experience an otherwise unheard-of level of sound quality that won’t affect your room’s aesthetic.
The MartinLogan Motion XT CI series takes performance to the next level over Motion CI. The Folded Motion XT tweeter gives each model in the Motion XT series even more of the clarity, output and efficiency that the standard size FMT is famous for. With Motion XT, we wanted to increase all aspects of performance over the Motion series, so we didn’t just stop at the tweeter. All Motion XT models feature woven Kevlar woofers for increased rigidity and lightness as well as a special Nomex layer on the back side of the woofer material which increases clarity and realism by reducing resonance and ringing. In addition to the larger tweeter, and lighter, stronger woofers, MartinLogan’s design and engineering team has fitted the Motion XT series with a more substantial chassis to strengthen the speaker and provide a more accurate sound, similar to a better cabinet on a traditional speaker. The Nomex layer and the chassis are not something you can see after installation, but it matters to the performance of the speaker, so it matters to us. With Motion XT CI, the difference is in the details.
