The elegant Motion 40 tower speaker features the advanced resolution Folded Motion tweeter, a 5-1/2 ̋ aluminum midrange cone and two 6-1/2 ̋ aluminum bass cones. An expansive soundstage, richly detailed highs, an open and revealing midrange and tight, detailed and an extended low end are hallmarks of this design. Available in the classic high-gloss Piano Black finish.
Audiophile Performance without the Audiophile Price
Part of the secret to the Motion 40’s outstanding performance lies in the dual oversized aluminum-cone woofers paired with a rear-firing bass port.The oversized woofer design creates increased cone area delivering higher output and audibly richer, deeper bass performance than it’s slightly smaller sibling, the Motion 20. The addition of a dedicated mid woofer also promotes an even more open, revealing and authentic midrange. Pairing this powerful trio with our patented Folded Motion tweeter (similar to tweeter technologies found in ultra-expensive speakers) creates audible acoustic alchemy across the frequency spectrum.
A Versatile Performer
From a spectacular 2-channel music system to an exhilarating multi-channel home theater system, the Motion 40 is a versatile performer. Two Motion 40s deliver spectacular stereo performance. For listeners building a home theater system, the Motion 40 is voice matched to our Motion 30 center channel speaker and Motion FX surround speakers. To plumb the depths of the music and movie experience, bass afficionados can add a high-performance MartinLogan subwoofer.

Value Quality Price
Motion 40 (Posted on 7/23/2014)I purchased the Martin Logan Motion 40 and Motion 8 last April from the Audioholics shop renamed Audio Gurus giving me an all Martin Logan system to pair with the two Dynamos already in use. The sound is wide, open and deep with good detail and clarity on the instruments. Highly recommend a listen to these speakers!
