MartinLogan Dynamo 1000w

 

What's in a name? In the case of the MartinLogan Dynamo 1000w subwoofer, there's quite a bit: MartinLogan is best known in audio circles as a manufacturer of high-performance electrostatic speakers, but in recent years its subwoofers have earned...

Exceptionally musical ; Tight, fast and deep bass response ; Capable of above-average SPLs ; Wireless capability included ; Convertible from down-firing to forward-firing

Expensive ; Not as gut wrenching as some more expensive, ported options

This is one of those few subwoofers that can nimbly navigate the divide between the nuanced music performance and explosive movie tracks and successfully meet the demands for both.

MartinLogan Dynamo

 

Every time I hear the word Dynamo I can't help but remember with considerable affection the late great Frank Zappa whose song Dynamo Hum must go down in the annals of music as one of the funniest ever (and until recent times one of the rudest). Not...

MartinLogan Dynamo 300

 

For the money, this sub produces a fantastically clear, quality sound that compliments my bedroom system nicely.

I just bought this sub to use in my bedroom with an Energy Take 5 system and a Yamaha V373 receiver. After watching a movie, and playing several different genres of music, I have decided that this sub was exactly what I wanted. At only half volume,...

This sub did not come with a subwoofer cable to attach it to the receiver. Luckily I had one

Incredible Sounding Sub!

 

For those who want clean tight musical bass, a quality 8" sub is an excellent choice. I use it through the preamp output of a 85-watt Peachtree Nova stereo amplifier to the RCA inputs of the sub. It is currently being used with Polk Model 70's and...

Small ; Accurate Sound ; Inexpensive

Substantial sub-woofer; clear and solid

 

Solid, clear; wonderful deep bass sound. My old subwoofer died a few years ago and I've missed this range. Great sound. Crisp, not sloppy.

Great subwoofer.

 

My Speaker setup are the Martin Logan motion 4 for the surrounds and the motion 6 for the center. I have a pioneer elite receiver and a LG 55 7200 lcd. This sub has completed the awesomeness of the whole setup and sounds amazing. The difference between...

Good sub but poor quality

 

The sub provided nice, clean bass for a 10" sub but the material the sub housing was made of was very cheap. For the money your paying for this sub , I expect a better built sub
