MartinLogan is shipping the Motion AFX loudspeaker, designed to deliver moving audio with Dolby Atmos.
Dolby Atmos technology places and moves audio anywhere in a room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience. Whether the content is music, movies, television shows, or video games, Dolby Atmos delivers the full impact of the entertainment experience.
MartinLogan Motion AFX Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers are designed to create a height layer of sound above the listener that connects viewers with the on-screen experience. The Motion AFX is designed to sit on top of floorstanding and bookshelf speakers in MartinLogan’s Motion series, including the Motion 15, 20, 35XT, 40, and 60XT.
Designed to reflect sound off of the ceiling in a Dolby Atmos entertainment system, the AFX will also work with other brands of speakers that have a flat top. For systems where speaker-top mounting is not possible, other installation options are available.
Each Motion AFX speaker features a 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeter and 5.25-inch polypropylene cone bass/midrange driver with stamped steel basket, all incorporated into a high-gloss black cabinet. The shape of the Motion AFX cabinet is specifically designed to angle the drivers towards the ceiling in order to accurately deliver a Dolby Atmos sound experience above the listeners.
MartinLogan also offers a range of architectural in-ceiling speakers, including the Vanquish, that can be used in a home theater system designed to support Dolby Atmos playback.
