The Motion 20, a compact 36.6″ tall floorstanding speaker features two 5-1/2″ aluminum cone woofers with non-resonant asymmetrical chambers and cast polymer baskets.

The Motion 40 uses a 5-1/2″ aluminum mid-bass and dual 6-1/2″ oversized bass cones, paired with a rear-firing bass port. The oversized woofer design allows for higher output and deeper bass performance over the Motion 20. The addition of a dedicated midrange woofer also provides increased resolution and naturalness.

Both the Motion 20 and 40 feature Precision Vojtko crossovers with custom air core coil and low DCR steel laminate inductors. Polyester film capacitors in series and low DF electrolytic capacitors in parallel make for some of the most sophisticated crossovers available. The audiophile-grade tweeters each consist of 1″ x 1.4″ high-frequency Folded Motion Transducers with a 5.25″ x 1.75″ diaphragm along with thermal and current protection.

Ideal for two-channel stereo music enjoyment or a multi-channel home theater system, the Motion 20 and 40 are voice matched to the Motion FX surround speakers and the soon-to-be-released Motion 30 center channel speaker. Bass aficionados can add a high performance MartinLogan subwoofer for gut-busting lows, the Dynamo 500 or 700 are recommended.
