MartinLogan Unveils Stealthy Architectural Series, Voice-Matched to Folded Motionâ„¢ and Electrostatic Speakers

Arch-Inside

Nine new custom in-wall and in-ceiling models, featuring MartinLogan’s Folded Motion™ transducer technology, deliver sonic flexibility for architectural speaker installations.

Lawrence, KS – December 9, 2010 – MartinLogan, The Great American Speaker Company, is proud to announce new Architectural speakers comprised of nine custom installation models, voice matched to the company’s award-winning Folded Motion and ultra-premium electrostatic speakers.


Whole-home and multi-room audio solutions are in demand and consumers want consistent sound and music quality throughout. MartinLogan is expanding its selection of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers to provide stealthy installation options for loyal fans of Folded Motion technology.

Research and design from the Motion® Series, the upcoming ElectroMotion™ Series (available Spring 2011), and the company’s ultimate performance ESL and Reserve ESL Series of electrostatic speakers form the backbone of the new in-wall and in-ceiling offerings.

MartinLogan’s new architectural speakers will also feature low-profile, paintable grilles with virtually no bezel for an invisible integration into any wall or ceiling. A magnetic system secures grilles easily into place, reducing the risk of warping or damage during installation.

“We went back to the drawing board on styling and performance,” tells Carl Masters, Mechanical Designer at MartinLogan, “and designed these speakers to be as visually unobtrusive as possible while maintaining stunning sound, voice-matched to our electrostatic speakers.”
