Lawrence, Kansas, August 2004—MartinLogan, the Loudspeaker Technology Company, announces
the introduction of the Dynamo™ high-resolution subwoofer system. Resulting from seven years of
dedicated research in amplification, driver, cabinet, control, and systems technologies Dynamo
establishes new standards for versatility, size and performance. Capable of both front and down firing
configurations, Dynamo is not only one of the most compact subwoofers in its class, but also offers the
best performance for its size. Dynamo reproduces sub-bass frequencies with the same exacting accuracy
and authority audio enthusiasts have come to expect from the MartinLogan line of subwoofer products.

IME (Inverse Mathematical Equalization) Filtering for a Flat Frequency Response
Originally developed by MartinLogan engineers for the flagship Statement e2 loudspeaker, Dynamo’s
advanced IME (Inverse Mathematical Equalization) filtering technology is derived from an inverse of the
unfiltered woofer response. Precision IME filtering results in an extremely accurate low-frequency
response far beyond that of simple second order high Q filters commonly found in competitively priced
subwoofers

Versatility in Application
The new Dynamo, available in either silver or black, is optimized for use in stereo- and multi-channel
applications and in all installation configurations including corners, inside of cabinets and underneath or
behind furniture.

Front-Firing/Down-Firing Configuration for Maximum Installation Flexibility
To maximize performance when installed inside of a cabinet or other custom installation, Dynamo’s
standard down firing configuration easily converts into a front firing configuration. A grill cover and 90°
RCA adaptors are provided for use in front firing applications.

High-Resolution Proprietary Amplifier Maximizes System Performance
Dynamo's ultra-efficient amplifier and woofer combine to deliver explosively accurate levels of output
beyond competitively priced subwoofers with amplifiers rated at even 5 times the power. The Dynamo
features a proprietary high-power Vojtko™ amplifier using much higher switching frequencies and new
techniques over typical subwoofer amplifiers to keep noise, distortion and thermal energy at the lowest
possible levels.

State-of-the-Art, Low-Distortion Aluminum Element Dynamic Driver
At the heart of the Dynamo subwoofer lays a proprietary MartinLogan, 10-inch, high-resolution driver,
designed and manufactured with the same meticulous attention, care and precision as those found in the
ground breaking Descent subwoofer. The combination of Dynamo’s high-excursion aluminum cone and
the tremendous field strength generated by the magnet motor structure results in huge excursions and

                                                       1 of 2
massive cubic displacement capability. Known for their low mass and ability to eliminate cone flexure this
high-excursion/high-resolution driver inherently delivers world-class sub-bass performance.

Intuitive Input and Control Architecture Allows Seamless System Integration
Audio and video products available today represent a confusing myriad of connection options and setting
configurations. Understanding this complexity, the MartinLogan team designed the Dynamo with an input
architecture that easily integrates in both 2-and multi-channel systems. LFE input effectively uses no low-
pass filter, instead leaving crossover control to the processor. Left/Right line level inputs integrate a
precision 30–80Hz low-pass filter. RCA output allows multiple Dynamos to operate in a serial
configuration.

ETC™ (Energy Transfer Coupler) Spikes Maximize Low Frequency Performance
Subwoofers using blunt rubberized feet loose energy to the floor, resulting in smeared bass. The Dynamo
subwoofer system includes Energy Transfer Coupler (ETC) spikes to provide a solid foundation by
coupling the Dynamo directly to the floor to minimize lost energy and allow tighter, better defined bass.
