Product Details

Martin Logan Motion 8 Glossy Black Compact Center Speaker - MO8BL

Audiophile Performance without an audiophile price

Inspired by the clarity and detail of our ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, Motion 8 features an exquisite Folded Motion™ tweeter and powerful bass technology in a compact and affordable package. Key to Motion 8’s performance is the lightning fast response of the tweeter’s light-weight diaphragm combined with a large surface area (8-times that of a typical one-inch dome tweeter) which together achieve a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity—certain to inspire envy in audiophiles and non-audiophiles alike.

  • Folded Motion™ tweeter

    Comments about Martin Logan Motion Black Compact Center Speaker:

    I replaced some older (17 years) Kef speakers in my family room and wanted something with better sound and not overly pricy. The Martin Logan brand was recommended by Abt and it is excellent, very good sound, very sharp and discrete. Can hear the highs and lows as well as midrange. I have a 5.1 setup with a Denon receiver (also from Abt) and I am very happy with the sound
