SUBWOOFER SETUP HAS NEVER BEEN SO SIMPLE
(AVAILABLE FOR iOS AND ANDROID)

Let’s face it. Adjusting subwoofer controls has always been a cumbersome task. With MartinLogan’s Subwoofer Control App, this has changed. Now, listener’s can effortlessly adjust subwoofer settings without leaving their listening position. Achieving perfect blending with a subwoofer has never been this easy.

MartinLogan’s Subwoofer Control App uses a Bluetooth connection with a compatible subwoofer to effortlessly adjust subwoofer settings in real time. MartinLogan’s Subwoofer Control App is available for free to iOS and Android users.

Volume Control and Tone Sweep

Volume Control allows you to adjust the loudness of your subwoofer from -40dB to 12dB. A unique Tone Sweepfeature assists users in locating areas in listening rooms where troublesome rattles or resonances may occur. A single press of a button allows listeners to initiate a tone sweep from 20–120Hz. If a rattle or resonance occurs in the room any frequency can be held, allowing the listener to investigate and identify the source of the unwanted noise.

Low Pass Filter

The Low Pass Filter screen lets you to adjust the low-pass frequency for the left and right (RCA or speaker level) inputs and select between a third or fourth order crossover. This setting is not applied to the LFE (RCA or XLR) inputs, instead leaving the task of bass management to your audio/video processor. If you’re using this subwoofer as a dedicated LFE channel, just set this to bypass and be done with it!

OPTIONAL SWT-X WIRELESS INPUT

Although correct placement plays a key role in optimizing subwoofer performance, sometimes it imposes the inconvenience of running long lengths of cable through walls, along baseboards or under floors and carpets. To solve the problem, Dynamo 600X, 800X, 1100X, and 1600X include a connection port for an optional wireless system. MartinLogan’s new SWT-X Wireless Subwoofer System (sold separately) incorporates the latest in wireless audio transmission technology, including 2.4GHz dynamic frequency selection, forward error correction, and a range up to 50 feet. Easy to install in the subwoofer, the SWT-X receiver requires no external power source or audio connections.

LEFT AND RIGHT 2-CHANNEL INPUTS

Dynamo 400, 600X, 800X, 1100X, and 1600X subwoofers feature left and right input via RCA line level as well as speaker level connections.

LFE HOME THEATER INPUT

Dynamo 400 and 600X’s right inputs double as an LFE input for home theater applications. Dynamo 800X ups the ante by adding a discrete LFE RCA line level input. Dynamo 1100X and 1600X go one step further by adding both XLR and RCA inputs for LFE connection.

12V TRIGGER INPUT

Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X feature 12V Trigger Inputs, allowing an external device to turn the subwoofer on and off.

SIMULTANEOUS LFE AND 2-CHANNEL CONNECTIONS

Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X subwoofers features left and right input via robust connection and a control system that allows simultaneous connection of both 2-channel stereo music and multi-channel home theater and allows each source to have individual crossover and level settings, giving listeners a perfect performance in every application. LFE inputs use no low-pass filter, leaving crossover control to the processor. Left and right inputs integrate discrete user-adjustable low-pass filters allowing different level and crossover points when playing back two channel music.

POWERFUL, HIGH-EXCURSION, LOW-TURBULENCE, INVERTED SURROUND WOOFERS

The latest generation of MartinLogan Dynamo subwoofers feature advanced-design woofers with inverted surrounds and powerful magnet, motor, and suspension designs. In front-fire mode the unique inverted surround design maximizes excursion clearance behind the grill cover. When positioned in a down-firing configuration, the inverted surround significantly reduces airflow related turbulence for an articulate and detailed low-frequency experience. These advanced-technology woofers pair a high-power magnet structure (significantly more robust than previous generations) with low-mass diaphragms to provide massive excursions while perfectly preserving the tiniest bass detail. The exceptional damping properties of the cone ensure a smooth, non-resonant response necessary for truly seamless blending with high-performance loudspeakers. Every element of Dynamo subwoofers has been meticulously designed to deliver a staggering low-frequency performance – all without a hint of distortion.

ADVANCED ULTRA-EFFICIENT SWITCH MODE POWER SUPPLIES AND CLASS-D AMPLIFIERS

Dynamo subwoofer class-D amplifiers operate with extremely low levels of distortion and deliver dynamic impact with plenty of overhead. Low- noise, high-power switching power supplies produce clean power efficiently in a small space and effortlessly provide tremendous levels of current. Both feature high-quality MOSFET transistors, transformers, noise-suppression networks, and control circuitry. The switching power supply combined with reliable class-D technology means there’s virtually no energy lost in the subwoofer system.

 
 

INVERSE MATHEMATICAL EQUALIZATION (IME) FILTER

The IME filter used in the Dynamo subwoofers is derived from the inverse of the unfiltered driver response. Precision IME filtering yields extremely accurate low-frequency response—superior to that provided by the simple second-order high-Q filters typically found in subwoofers in this price range.

SEALED CABINET WITH EXTENSIVE INTERNAL BRACING

Although ports, when correctly designed, are a convenient and cost-effective way of increasing low-frequency output, when used in small cabinets their reliance on resonant energy can impair bass quality. Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X are compact, sealed subwoofer systems that minimize transient-blurring group delay while maintaining smooth, consistent response, regardless of music or movie source material. The cabinets are constructed from the finest composite material for acoustic integrity. Inside, critically placed structural cross-bracing provides a stable foundation for the woofer, while the added rigidity keeps cabinet-induced resonances and non-linearities to inaudible levels.

BUILT-IN ETC (ENERGY TRANSFER COUPLER) SPIKES

Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X come with custom ETC spikes which can be used to enhance stability on thick carpets, or create tighter coupling between subwoofer and floor to enhance overall sound quality. The built-in spikes are conveniently and discretely hidden underneath the rubber feet.
