Crisp and clear center channel sound

Every word. Every nuance. Every special effect. That's what the Motion 50XT brings in spades to your home theater experience. MartinLogan's top-of-the-line Motion series center channel speaker boasts their best Folded Motion™ XT tweeter, sophisticated crossovers, and custom bi-wire binding posts to create exceptionally immersive center channel sound that draws you right into the on-screen action. It's a perfect center channel partner to the Motion 60XT floor-standing speakers or Motion 35XT bookshelves.

Folded Motion XT tweeter for superior detail


MartinLogan's most advanced Folded Motion XT tweeter produces clear, detailed highs.

MartinLogan's innovative Folded Motion XT tweeter uses a pleated diaphragm that works similarly to an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound. Because it requires almost 90% less excursion than the typical 1" dome tweeter, response time is drastically reduced along with distortion. The diaphragm's increased surface area also provides wide, yet controlled sound dispersion to create a realistic and highly accurate soundstage. Movie and TV dialogue sound detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness. And the XT tweeter boasts a 40% larger radiating surface area than the standard Folded Motion tweeter found in other MartinLogan designs, for even greater bandwidth and efficiency.

Bass that keeps pace

The Motion 50XT uses dual 6-1/2" aluminum cone woofers to supply fast, clean midrange and powerful low frequencies that blend in seamlessly with the Folded Motion tweeter. A low-turbulence rear-firing port extends bass performance, but keeps it tight and tuneful.

Beautiful cabinet with an angled design

With its flawless Piano Black or Black Cherrywood high-gloss finish, gently radiused corners, and handsome perforated magnetic steel grille, the 50XT is one beautiful center channel speaker. Its angled enclosure is also a nice touch for versatility. No matter where you place it, you can direct the sound toward your ears. Place it beneath your TV firing up toward your listening position, or mount it high and flip the cabinet upside down to aim sound out into the room.
