This preowned Martin Logan Motion 8 center channel has been gently used and is in good condition both cosmetically and functionally. It will come in the original packaging and include the OEM provided speaker mount. One of the speaker has a missing logo tag on the grill and is missing the grill seal so the grill wants to pull away from one of the corners of the speaker. You can see in the picture. It will be a simple fix, is entirely aesthetic, and does not hinder performance. This speaker sounds absolutely fantastic and excels in the Midrange and clear transparent highs due to Martin Logan's Folded Motion Tweeter, which is also found in the much higher priced electrostats. Please let us know if you have any questions or special shipping requests prior to purchase. Thank you for shopping with Arkansas Premier AV.

Dynamic home theater performance from MartinLogan
The Motion 8 uses MartinLogan's acclaimed Folded Motion tweeter for smooth, effortless highs.
MartinLogan's elegant Motion 8 was designed for maximum performance and flexibility. This versatile speaker comes with brackets for easy wall-mounting. And because you can orient it horizontally or vertically, it makes a great center channel companion to other wall-mountable members of the Motion series, such as the Motion 2 or Motion 4. You can also use a trio of these speakers across your front left, center, and right channels for a seamless front soundstage.
Folded Motion™ tweeter for detailed sound
The distinctive sound of the Motion series starts with MartinLogan's Folded Motion tweeter. Rather than a dome or cone driver, this tweeter uses a pleated diaphragm that works like an accordion by "squeezing" air to create sound. It requires about 90% less excursion than a typical 1" dome tweeter, resulting in quicker response time and much lower distortion. The tweeter's controlled sound dispersion creates a focused soundstage with a real sense of presence. Music and movie soundtracks sound amazingly detailed, but smooth and effortless, without a trace of harshness.
A stylish, curved cabinet
The Motion 8, shown here as a wall-mounted center channel speaker
The tweeter is flanked by two 4" doped paper cone woofers that supply accurate mids and bass. All three drivers are mounted in an eye-catching curved cabinet that's finished in classic high-gloss piano black. The Motion 8's subtle, modern lines complement just about any décor.
Be sure you get enough bass
For even better bass — and especially for high-impact home theater — we recommend a powered subwoofer, like one of MartinLogan's excellent models.
