The Audible Truth About Thin TVs
TV manufacturers are pushing the physical limits of electronics, making TVs that are thinner than ever at less than 2-inches from the wall. While they look great, creating a thinner television means making compromises to the built-in speakers; tiny drivers, cheaper parts, reduced cabinet volume and placement behind the TV create unnatural, lifeless sound. Worse yet, these speakers are usually underpowered, and easily distort when you turn up the volume. Motion SLM provides a clean, easy to install solution for elevating the aural experience that has been sacrificed with ultra-thin TV technology.
Slender Profile & Stunning Performance
The secret to the Motion SLM's outstanding performance is the innovative dual 4-inch, ultra-slim fiber cone woofers and dual 4-inch high-velocity passive bass radiators, paired with a Folded Motion tweeter to create stunning acoustical alchemy typically found in much larger speaker systems. Hidden discretely underneath the grille, the drivers are held securely in place by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle. The high-gloss black SLM cabinet is only 1.45-inches thin, for a total wall protrusion of 1.83-inches with magnetic grille and included wall mount bracket.
Maximum Versatility On-Wall or On-Shelf
With keyhole slots on the speaker's back panel that attach easily to the included wall bracket, you'll have the SLM wall-mounted and playing in no time. While we created the Motion SLM to wall mount next to ultra-flat panel TVs, that's not their only application. Included with each speaker is a curved black base to allow them to sit on a shelf or equipment cabinet.
The Perfect LCR System
The Folded Motion tweeter has an 80° x 80° dispersion pattern, which allows the Motion SLM to sound exactly the same in a horizontal or vertical orientation, making them perfect for Left-Center-Right (LCR) system applications. The logo on the grille is magnetic and can move and rotate to the proper atheistically pleasing location in any orientation.
Each speaker includes "kick-stand" brackets that attach to the back of the cabinet, allowing them to free-stand for center channel applications. The stands are easily adjustable with the provided screw feet.
Synonymous with electrostatic speakers, MartinLogan is famous for producing the finest quality electrostatic speakers for the home audio market. There’s something special about a MartinLogan electrostatic speaker that offers an extraordinary and compellingly realistic audio reproduction. This magical sound is created by using an electrostatic panel with super lightweight diaphragm for instantaneous movement and pairing this with a conventional cone speaker to deliver high quality bass in a hybrid speaker package.
Formed in the late 1970’s by Gayle Martin Sanders and Ron Logan Sutherland, the company created a name for itself in 1983 with the much acclaimed Monolith electrostatic speaker. The company has continued to evolve and develop their technology and now offers a full range of home audio speaker systems for Hi-Fi and Home Cinema systems.
Those who have never heard an electrostatic speaker before will immediately notice the difference when listening to their first MartinLogan electrostatic. View our range of MartinLogan speakers below and get in touch with our team if you need further information.
