MartinLogan Hits all Channels with ElectroMotion Surround and Center Speakers

The ElectroMotion™ C2 and FX2 introduce Compact Folded Motion technology to center and surround channels, giving electrostatic speaker loyalists the opportunity to go 5.1 and beyond.

Lawrence, KS - August 2011 - MartinLogan, The Great American Speaker Company, is proud to announce the availability of two new ElectroMotion™ home theater speakers, the ElectroMotion C2 center channel and the ElectroMotion FX2 surround. Electrostatic and compact Folded Motion™ thin film transducer technologies appear for the first time in non -floor standing speakers with the C2 and FX2. Sonically matched with the ElectroMotion ESL speaker, the combination provides an articulate and powerful electrostatic surround sound experience.

To provide a superlative soundstage, the EM -C2 center channel and EM -FX2 wide -dispersion surround channel speakers feature the next evolution of Folded Motion technology.
