    Hands down the best speakers I’ve owned. Currently using these speakers as left and right channel and these speakers are beautiful as well as sound great. Great mids and highs, however due to being thin they suffer when it comes to bass so make sure you have a sub. Installation was fairly simple, considering this is the first time I’ve installed any speakers on a wall. The only thing I wish as that it allowed the speaker wire to run down rather than on the side. Recommend having another one as a center, or even a Motion SLM. If you’re looking for great sounding speakers that take up no room then these are your speakers.

    A good center, with the right setup

    If you have at least a decent set of fronts and a sub, you should be happy. If you're looking for a full-range center and don't plan on having much else, you'll likely be disappointed. For the size and the price of this speaker I was expecting more mid-range. In fact, I actually had to take the cover off and physically touch the woofers to make sure they were working. As an isolated channel it sounds flat, but there is incredible clarity to voice dialog (which is the main point of a center). With support it works well, just use the receiver's crossover to let the sub handle the low frequencies. If you can't do that, then look elsewhere

    Originally had my heart set on floor standing Motion 40s but in the age old battle between man, woman and home theater, opted for something that was a little more ascetically pleasing in the living room. Mike at Magnolia store in SW Vegas sold me on these puppies, demoing the non-XL version against the Motion 40s and it was hard for my non-audiophile ear to tell the difference. Have a decent subwoofer to make up for any loss in low end but overall I think they sound fantastic and look fantastic too. Had the Geeks come and run cables through the wall and they did a great job.

    I picked up a pair to start my home theater and figured they'd sound as good as the motion towers. The highs are good but no bass. They definitely need a subwoofer to reach full potential. Not many reviews anywhere but I did find one video that was helpful https://youtu.be/gwumAf4Eldg

    I got these beasts few days back. From my experience, I found out these logan machines to be the best in the industry in this price range. If anyone wants to build a customize home theater system then definitely I would recommend these guys if you dont go for Logan's electrostatic line.

    I have to admit the visual enhancement to my 5.1 system is amazing. The sound is crisp and real! You will need a subwoofer, but surely you know. Love the piano black on the edges.

    Great clarity. Replaced entire theater with all Martin Logan in a Dolby atmos format using marantz receiver plus additional separates. Sounds excellent.
