Martin Logan Dynamo 1600X Subwoofer

The Martin Logan Dynamo 1600X Subwoofer is a true powerhouse, designed to elevate your music and home theater experience with its remarkable features and unmatched performance. Let's delve into the exceptional qualities that make this subwoofer a standout choice.

Impressive Power and Audiophile-Grade Woofer:

With an 1,800 Watt (peak) amplifier and a colossal 15-inch audiophile-grade woofer, the Dynamo 1600X commands attention. It delivers dramatic bass detail, precision attack, superb extension, and room-shaking output. This subwoofer is the ultimate choice for those who crave deep, impactful bass that can transform any audio or home theater setup.

MartinLogan Sub Control App: Simplified Control and Setup

The MartinLogan Sub Control app, compatible with both iOS and Android devices, revolutionizes the way you interact with your Dynamo 1600X. By establishing a Bluetooth connection, this app streamlines the setup and configuration process. You gain control over various parameters, including volume level, low-pass filter settings (frequency and order), phase adjustment, 20–30Hz level, and access to three preset listening modes. Moreover, you can manage the Anthem Room Correction (ARC®) feature, ensuring that your subwoofer is optimized for your specific room. The app includes a unique tone sweep feature that helps identify problematic rattles or resonances in your listening space. A simple press of a button initiates a tone sweep from 20–120Hz, allowing you to locate and address unwanted noise sources.

Anthem Room Correction (ARC): Precision Room Optimization

The uniqueness of listening rooms poses challenges to achieving optimal sound. Anthem Room Correction (ARC) steps in by measuring low-frequency sound output in your room and comparing it to ideal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. Advanced algorithms within ARC effectively eliminate these anomalies, leaving you with naturally blended and realistic bass. Dynamo 1600X, like its counterparts, utilizes a Bluetooth connection with a smartphone or a USB connection with a PC to run ARC, ensuring that your subwoofer's performance is tailored to your room's acoustic characteristics.

User-Configurable Front-Firing or Down-Firing Design: Versatile Placement

The Dynamo 1600X offers a unique advantage – user-configurable front-firing or down-firing orientation. When placed within a cabinet or another discreet location, you can effortlessly switch between standard down-firing and front-firing orientations without the need for tools or special skills. For front-firing applications, a grille is provided to maintain a clean and elegant appearance.

Optional SWT-X Wireless Input: Cable-Free Convenience

In scenarios where subwoofer placement involves running long cables through walls or under carpets, Dynamo 1600X provides a solution. It features a connection port for the optional SWT-X Wireless Subwoofer System (sold separately). This wireless system incorporates cutting-edge technology, including 2.4GHz dynamic frequency selection, forward error correction, and an impressive range of up to 50 feet. Installation of the SWT-X receiver within the subwoofer is straightforward and requires no external power source or audio connections, allowing you the freedom to place your subwoofer where it suits your room best.

Extensive Input Options: Tailored Connectivity

The Dynamo 1600X ensures compatibility with various audio setups through its comprehensive input options. It includes left and right inputs via RCA line level, accommodating stereo sources. Additionally, it provides speaker-level connections for seamless integration into your speaker system. For home theater enthusiasts, the right inputs serve as an LFE (Low-Frequency Effects) input, providing an immersive home theater experience. This subwoofer goes further by incorporating both XLR and RCA inputs for LFE connection, making it a versatile choice for various audio setups.

12V Trigger Input: External Control

Dynamo 1600X, along with its counterparts Dynamo 800X and 1100X, features 12V Trigger Inputs. This feature allows an external device to control the subwoofer's power state, enabling convenient automation of subwoofer activation and deactivation.

Simultaneous LFE and 2-Channel Connections: Precise Sound Management

For Dynamo 1600X and its companions Dynamo 800X and 1100X, versatility is key. These subwoofers feature left and right inputs via robust connections and a control system that permits the simultaneous connection of both 2-channel stereo music and multi-channel home theater sources. Each source can have individual crossover and level settings, ensuring flawless performance in every application. LFE inputs do not incorporate a low-pass filter, allowing the processor to control the crossover. In contrast, left and right inputs include discrete user-adjustable low-pass filters, allowing different level and crossover points when playing back two-channel music.

Advanced Inverted Surround Woofers: Precision and Consistency

The latest generation of MartinLogan Dynamo subwoofers, including the Dynamo 1600X, features advanced-design woofers with inverted surrounds. This innovative design maximizes excursion clearance behind the grill cover in front-firing mode. When positioned in a down-firing configuration, the inverted surround significantly reduces airflow-related turbulence, resulting in articulate and detailed low-frequency reproduction. Dynamo woofers pair a high-power magnet structure (significantly more robust than previous generations) with low-mass diaphragms, enabling massive excursions while preserving the finest bass details. The cone's exceptional damping properties ensure a smooth, non-resonant response, essential for seamless blending with high-performance loudspeakers.

Sealed Cabinet with Extensive Internal Bracing: Superior Acoustic Integrity

Dynamo 1600X, along with Dynamo 800X and 1100X, features compact, sealed subwoofer systems designed to minimize transient-blurring group delay. They maintain smooth and consistent response regardless of the music or movie source material. The cabinets are constructed using the finest composite materials to ensure acoustic integrity. Critically placed structural cross-bracing within the cabinets provides a stable foundation for the woofer, reducing cabinet-induced resonances and non-linearities to inaudible levels. This meticulous construction guarantees superior audio quality.

Built-In ETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) Spikes: Enhanced Stability and Sound Quality

Dynamo 1600X, Dynamo 800X, and Dynamo 1100X come equipped with custom ETC spikes. These spikes enhance stability on thick carpets and create tighter coupling between the subwoofer and the floor, ultimately improving overall sound quality. The built-in spikes are discreetly hidden beneath the rubber feet, allowing for a clean and uncluttered appearance.
