Gen2 Obsidian Folded Motion® Tweeter XT

The Gen2 Obsidian FMT XT Tweeter has been upgraded with a larger motor to provide higher output and lower distortion. The FMT XT offers the most effortless and detailed sound in the Motion range with a 40% increase in surface area over our signature FMT. Outside of our legendary Electrostatic speakers, these new tweeters provide our cleanest, most detailed and accurate high frequency presentation to date.

Folded Motion® Waveguide

After an extensive evaluation of nearly 50 design options, the Folded Motion® Waveguide profile was meticulously chosen to harmoniously align with the dispersion of the midrange drivers, resulting in enhanced output. The waveguide guarantees consistent sound quality regardless of the listener’s position and minimizes unwanted room reflections. Proper waveguide design is crucial as it helps control the sound’s dispersion pattern, ensuring that the sound is evenly distributed across the listening area and resulting in optimal sound quality.

Nomex®-Reinforced Kevlar® Midrange

The Nomex®-Reinforced Kevlar® Mid-bass drivers in the Motion® XT C100 offer a perfect balance of lightweight, strength, anti-resonance and anti-ringing properties for unparalleled sound quality. When combined with the Gen2 Obsidian FMT XT, the clarity of vocals, dialogue and instrumental accuracy is unmatched at any volume. The seamless integration with Motion® XT CI products makes creating custom solutions effortless.

Anti-Lobing Centre Channel Design

Motion® center channels utilize a 2.5-Way crossover design to eliminate lobing and preserve the tonality of the source material. This results in a significant reduction of negative effects on sound reproduction, leading to a more precise and accurate listening experience.

Flippable Centre Channel Cabinet

The unique flippable design of the Motion® cabinet allows for better sound clarity and immersion when placed on a lower shelf or piece of furniture by directing the sound upwards towards the listener’s ears.
