Martin Logan Dynamo 1100X Subwoofer

The Martin Logan Dynamo 1100X Subwoofer represents the pinnacle of precision and innovation in bass performance. Designed to elevate your audio experience, this subwoofer boasts a range of cutting-edge features. Let's explore what sets the Dynamo 1100X apart.

Sub Control App: Streamlined Setup

Experience effortless setup and configuration with the Martin Logan Subwoofer Control app, compatible with both iOS and Android devices. This app leverages Bluetooth connectivity to provide intuitive control over various parameters. Users can fine-tune volume levels, adjust the low-pass filter settings (including frequency and order), optimize phase alignment, set 20–30Hz levels, select from three preset listening modes, and manage Anthem Room Correction settings. Notably, the app offers a unique tone sweep feature that helps identify troublesome rattles or resonances within your listening room. A simple button press initiates a tone sweep spanning 20–120Hz, enabling precise identification and resolution of unwanted noise sources.

ARC Mobile App: Perfecting Room Acoustics

Martin Logan recognizes that every listening room is unique, which can impact bass performance. The Anthem Room Correction (ARC) Mobile app, available for iOS and Android, addresses this challenge. It measures low-frequency sound output within your room and compares it to ideal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. Using advanced algorithms, ARC effectively eliminates anomalies, leaving you with natural and seamlessly blended bass. Dynamo 1100X, along with its counterparts, Dynamo 600X, 800X, and 1600X, utilizes a Bluetooth connection with smartphones or USB connection with PCs to implement Anthem Room Correction, ensuring optimal audio quality regardless of room acoustics.

Flexible Front-Firing or Down-Firing Design

The Dynamo 1100X, like its counterparts, offers flexibility in subwoofer orientation. It can effortlessly transition from standard down-firing to front-firing configuration when placed in cabinets or discreet locations, all without requiring tools or special skills. For front-firing applications, a grille is provided to maintain a polished appearance.

Optional SWT-X Wireless Input: Freedom from Cables

Optimizing subwoofer placement sometimes entails dealing with cumbersome cable runs. Dynamo 600X, 800X, 1100X, and 1600X address this inconvenience by including a connection port for an optional wireless system. The Martin Logan SWT-X Wireless Subwoofer System (sold separately) incorporates advanced wireless audio transmission technology, featuring 2.4GHz dynamic frequency selection, forward error correction, and an impressive range of up to 50 feet. Installation is hassle-free, with the SWT-X receiver integrated into the subwoofer, requiring no external power source or additional audio connections.

Versatile Input Options

Dynamo subwoofers offer a range of input options to accommodate various audio setups. They include left and right 2-channel inputs via RCA line level, as well as speaker-level connections. For home theater applications, Dynamo 400, 600X, and 800X offer an LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) input. Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X go further by adding both XLR and RCA inputs for LFE connections.

12V Trigger Input: External Control

Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X incorporate 12V Trigger Inputs, allowing external devices to power the subwoofer on and off, enhancing control and automation capabilities.

Simultaneous LFE and 2-Channel Connections

The Dynamo 1100X, along with Dynamo 800X and 1600X, enables simultaneous connection of both 2-channel stereo music and multi-channel home theater sources. Each source can have individual crossover and level settings, ensuring optimal performance in any application. LFE inputs have no low-pass filter, leaving crossover control to the processor. Left and right inputs incorporate discrete user-adjustable low-pass filters, providing flexibility in two-channel music playback.

Exceptional Woofer Design

Dynamo subwoofers feature advanced woofers with inverted surrounds and robust magnet, motor, and suspension designs. These woofers maximize excursion clearance and minimize turbulence, delivering articulate and detailed low-frequency reproduction, whether in front-fire or down-firing configurations.

Advanced Class-D Amplification

Dynamo subwoofers employ class-D amplifiers with minimal distortion, delivering dynamic impact and ample overhead. Their high-power switching power supplies generate clean power efficiently within a compact space, offering substantial current levels. These amplifiers feature high-quality MOSFET transistors, transformers, noise-suppression networks, and control circuitry, ensuring top-notch performance.

Inverse Mathematical Equalization (IME) Filter

The IME filter utilized in Dynamo subwoofers is derived from the inverse of the unfiltered driver response. Precision IME filtering results in highly accurate low-frequency response, surpassing the performance of typical second-order high-Q filters found in subwoofers within this price range.

Sealed Cabinet with Robust Internal Bracing

While ports are often used to increase low-frequency output, they can introduce resonance-related issues when employed in small cabinets. Dynamo 1100X, like its counterparts Dynamo 800X and 1600X, is a compact sealed subwoofer system. It minimizes transient-blurring group delay while maintaining consistent response, regardless of the source material. These subwoofers feature cabinets constructed from high-quality composite materials for acoustic integrity. Internally, strategically placed structural cross-bracing provides a stable foundation for the woofer, reducing resonances and non-linearities to inaudible levels.

Built-In ETC™ Spikes for Enhanced Stability

To enhance stability on thick carpets or achieve tighter coupling between the subwoofer and the floor, Dynamo 1100X, along with Dynamo 800X and 1600X, includes custom ETC spikes. These spikes are discreetly integrated beneath the rubber feet, ensuring an elegant appearance while optimizing sound quality.
