Martin Logan Dynamo 800X Subwoofer

The Martin Logan Dynamo 800X Subwoofer combines cutting-edge technologies with meticulous design to deliver exceptional bass performance that enhances your audio experience. Let's dive into the features that make this subwoofer a powerhouse of precision.

Sub Control App: Simplified Configuration

The Martin Logan Subwoofer Control app, available for both iOS and Android devices, revolutionizes the setup and configuration of the Dynamo 800X. Through a Bluetooth connection, users can effortlessly control various parameters, including volume level, low-pass filter settings (frequency and order), phase adjustment, 20–30Hz level, three preset listening modes, and Anthem Room Correction control. Notably, the app features a unique tone sweep function, aiding in identifying problematic rattles or resonances within your listening space. A simple button press initiates a tone sweep from 20–120Hz, facilitating the detection and troubleshooting of unwanted noise sources.

ARC Mobile App: Optimizing Room Acoustics

Anthem Room Correction (ARC) plays a crucial role in ensuring optimal audio performance. Your listening room's unique size and characteristics can significantly impact subwoofer performance. ARC, available for iOS and Android, measures low-frequency sound output and compares it to optimal response curves that account for spatial anomalies. Using advanced algorithms, ARC effectively eliminates anomalies, leaving you with natural and seamlessly blended bass. Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X employ a Bluetooth connection with smartphones or USB connection with PCs to run Anthem Room Correction, ensuring that your room's acoustics never compromise audio quality.

Front-Firing or Down-Firing Flexibility

The Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X subwoofers offer a unique design feature that allows easy conversion from standard down-firing to front-firing orientation, with no tools or specialized skills required. This flexibility ensures adaptability to your room's layout and acoustic requirements. Additionally, a grille is included for front-firing applications, maintaining a polished appearance.

Optional SWT-X Wireless Input: Cable-Free Convenience

While subwoofer placement is crucial for optimal performance, it can sometimes necessitate lengthy cable runs. To address this challenge, Dynamo 600X, 800X, 1100X, and 1600X feature a connection port for an optional wireless system. The Martin Logan SWT-X Wireless Subwoofer System (sold separately) incorporates advanced wireless audio transmission technology, including 2.4GHz dynamic frequency selection and forward error correction, offering a range of up to 50 feet. Installation is hassle-free, and the SWT-X receiver, integrated into the subwoofer, requires no external power source or additional audio connections.

Versatile Input Options

The Dynamo subwoofers provide a range of input options to suit various audio setups. These options 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 take it a step further by adding both XLR and RCA inputs for LFE connection.

12V Trigger Input: External Control

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

Simultaneous LFE and 2-Channel Connections

The Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X subwoofers allow for 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, while left and right inputs incorporate discrete user-adjustable low-pass filters for flexibility in two-channel music playback.

Exceptional Woofer Design

The latest generation of Martin Logan Dynamo subwoofers features advanced woofers with inverted surrounds and powerful magnet, motor, and suspension designs. These woofers maximize excursion clearance and minimize turbulence, whether in front-fire or down-firing configurations, resulting in articulate and detailed low-frequency reproduction.

Advanced Class-D Amplification

Dynamo subwoofers utilize class-D amplifiers that operate with minimal distortion, delivering dynamic impact and ample overhead. Their high-power switching power supplies produce clean power efficiently, and the combination of high-quality MOSFET transistors, transformers, noise-suppression networks, and control circuitry ensures optimal performance.

Inverse Mathematical Equalization (IME) Filter

The IME filter used in Dynamo subwoofers is derived from the inverse of the unfiltered driver response. This precise filtering yields exceptionally accurate low-frequency response, surpassing the performance of typical second-order high-Q filters found in subwoofers within this price range.

Sealed Cabinet with Internal Bracing

Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X subwoofers feature compact, sealed cabinet designs that minimize transient-blurring group delay while maintaining consistent response, regardless of the source material. These cabinets are constructed from top-quality composite materials for acoustic integrity. Internally, strategically placed structural cross-bracing ensures a stable foundation for the woofer, reducing resonances and non-linearities to inaudible levels.

Built-In ETC™ Spikes for Stability

For added stability on thick carpets or to achieve tighter coupling between the subwoofer and the floor, Dynamo 800X, 1100X, and 1600X come with custom ETC spikes. These spikes are conveniently hidden beneath the rubber feet, preserving a clean and elegant appearance.
