Quick Installation

To provide an extremely quick and trouble free installation, MartinLogans engineering and design team created a robust mounting-lock system. When not in use the unbreakable die-cast aluminum mounting locks are held firmly in place within a self-contained housing. When the mounting locks are moved into place during installation they couple the loudspeakers rigid chassis to the drywall. If for any reason the speaker should be removed from the wall the mounting locks retract and lock themselves out of the way within their self-contained housing.

Every Voyage and Passage loudspeaker is provided with a rigid, full size installation template featuring a handle, quick reference installation instructions, and die cut guides for marking the cutout hole. To minimize installation site clutter, both speakers are boxed so that parts are removed from the shipping container in the order they are needed for installationfirst the template, next the speaker and finally the grill covers.

ATF (Advanced Thin Film) Transducers Provide Clarity, Detail and Resolution

ATF transducers, based on RADIA planar technology, consist of a micro-thin, low mass diaphragm with an ultra-light, etched conductive aluminum surface suspended between two high field strength neodymium super magnet arrays. When an electrical current (audio signal) passes through the etched aluminum on the diaphragms surface it is simultaneously pulled towards one of the neodymium arrays and pushed away from the opposing. When the direction of current is reversed the diaphragm is simultaneously pushed and pulled in the opposite direction, thus producing sound. This concept is called push-pull and is a major contributor to the linearity of both ATF and electrostatic MartinLogan thin film transducers

ATF diaphragms are constructed of low mass Dupont Kaladex PEN (polyethylene naphthalate)a material chemically similar to the low-mass PET (polyethylene terathylate) film used in MartinLogan's Generation 2 electrostatic transducers, yet capable of handling the high thermal requirements needed for stable magnetic thin film operation. Full surface drive capabilities allow this durable, low-mass diaphragm to remain discretely sized, yet achieve extremely low-distortion levels with superior resolution.

High-Resolution Woofer for Accurate Bass

Utilizing high-excursion, high-resolution woofers designed for accurate in-wall bass performance, Voyage and Passage deliver a precise low-end with accuracy, authority and extension uncommon to traditional in-wall loudspeakers.

Massive Audiophile Grade Crossover

Audiophile-grade Vojtko crossovers found within the Voyage and Passage are designed and manufactured with the same care and precision as those found in MartinLogans ultimate loudspeaker products. To maintain the integrity of the original audio signal throughout the filter, all high-performance crossover components, including massive air-core coil inductors, are mounted to 1/8-inch thick high-rigidity circuit boards with ultra-wide traces.

Rigid Extruded Aluminum Chassis and Baffle Stiffens Wall

Extruded and milled, the Voyage and Passage aluminum chassis exhibits rigidity capable of stiffening the wall in which they are installed, thus minimizing acoustically destructive vibrations. Additionally, an extremely dense and rigid, one inch-thick front baffle further minimizes acoustically destructive vibrations.

Flexible Aesthetic and Performance Features

Paintable end caps and a selection of grill color options endow the Voyage and Passage with the flexibility to complement any decor. The Industrys most highly adjustable tweeter alignment sphere (featuring 20-degree pan and tilt and 90-degree degree rotation capabilities) allows incredible adaptability in any environment. Horizontal and vertical installation options make the Voyage and Passage ideal for 2-channel stereo and multi-channel home theater listening in left, center, right or surround configurations.

IR Repeater Ready for Custom Installations

Voyage and Passage feature locations and predrilled pilot hole where IR repeaters can be installed allowing custom installers flexibility when integrating an audio/video system into a home.
