MartinLogan is now shipping the Summit hybrid electrostatic loudspeaker – featuring technological developments to reduce cabinet size and establish new standards in floor-standing loudspeakers.

Housed within an ultra-rigid, billet and extruded aluminum AirFrame, the Summit’s new CLS (Curvilinear Line Source) XStat transducer incorporates Vacuum Bonding and MicroPerf technology to provide heightened efficiency and precision.

MicroPerf stator technology reveals more open playable area in each panel. The Summit loudspeaker has an XStat electrostatic transducer with a playable area equal to that of a traditional electrostatic transducer nearly twice its size.

Rigid ClearSpars spacers allow XStat transducers to maintain a uniform tension on the diaphragm during critical panel construction processes, permitting critical stator and diaphragm spacing within an exact tolerance.

Summit’s PoweredForce topology integrates two high-resolution, aluminum cone 10-inch woofers per channel—each independently powered by a dedicated 200-watt low-distortion amplifier. Summit’s front firing woofer is precision aligned and crossed over to blend with the XStat transducer. Additionally, low-frequency equalization capabilities, integrated into the PoweredForce technology, allow precision calibration for optimal room integration.

The Summit is available in a variety of standard hand rubbed wood and aluminum finishes, and Summit can also be personalized and customized to fit any decor. It has a U.S. retail price of $9,995.
