Product Details

Martin Logan Cherrywood Motion LX16 Bookshelf Speakers - LX16GDCL

The Motion LX16 extends the award-winning Motion Series sound to a more traditional bookshelf package, featuring MartinLogan's advanced resolution Folded Motion™ tweeter, a low-distortion 5.25-inch high-excursion black-aluminum woofer, and low-turbulence rear-firing bass port for extended bass performance.

Inspired by MartinLogan's ultra-high-end electrostatic loudspeakers, the Motion® Series was created to provide stunning sound for your ultimate-performance home theater or stereo. MartinLogan's dedicated in-house engineers carefully crafted the Motion Series to create an extremely affordable and compact product line that seamlessly blends our exquisite Folded Motion™ transducers with powerful, compact bass technology. The result is a smooth, refined sound with stunning dynamic range and jaw-dropping clarity.


  • Minimalistic Design Featuring Luxurious Real-Wood
    For the Motion LX16, MartinLogan's signature perforated steel grille appears to float in front of the solidly constructed 3/4-inch thick MDF cabinets. Hidden discretely underneath the grille, the drivers are held securely in place by a solid, black-anodized brushed aluminum baffle. Folded Motion tweeters and woofers are seamlessly blended with an advanced topology crossover network featuring polypropylene and low-DF electrolytic capacitors, custom wound inductors, and thermal and current protection. The Motion LX Series also features recessed custom 5-way binding posts for connection versatility.

  • High-Gloss Finishes
    The Motion LX16 is available in two luxurious high-gloss finishes; Piano Black or Black Cherrywood. Our new high-gloss black cherrywood finish has deep cherry undertones and appears almost black in low light, giving them a unique and understated elegance that blends into any environment.
