Emotiva, the famous Tennessee-based audio company, has unveiled its revamped lineup of Airmotiv X loudspeakers for 2024, promising enhanced design and performance across the board. With a range of eight new models, priced from $399 to $1,999 per pair, these speakers cater to audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts seeking top-notch sound quality without breaking the bank.

One of the key highlights of the updated Airmotiv X series is the introduction of a PVC laminated HDF enclosure and a new HDF 25mm baffle, both extensively damped to minimize unwanted resonances and deliver cleaner, more accurate sound reproduction. The design overhaul extends to the cabinets, which now boast a slender and graceful profile. 

Notably, the front panels feature a beveled edge aimed at reducing diffraction, while the satin lacquer finish and concealed trim rings lend a sophisticated touch to the overall aesthetic.

Under the hood, Emotiva has fine-tuned the driver layout for superior sound quality, incorporating non-parallel midrange walls to minimize internal reflections. The centerpiece of the Airmotiv X series is the rotatable folded ribbon tweeter, equipped with an improved waveguide and Neo Magnet System, allowing users to customize speaker configurations to suit their specific layout requirements.

Each speaker in the lineup comes equipped with an internal-mounted crossover and efficient wire routing, which should ensure optimal performance and serviceability. The midrange drivers feature woven cone diaphragms, aluminum voice coils, milled aluminum phase plugs, copper shorting rings, and NBR surrounds, while the woofers boast long throw motors and progressive spiders for enhanced bass response.

The construction quality is evident in every detail, with over-one-inch thick multi-layer front panels providing rigidity for accurate sound reproduction. Tower speakers are further reinforced with internal window bracing and thick Dacron lining for improved sound dampening.

Emotiva has also prioritized versatility in the Airmotiv X series, with bi-amping terminals available on all models (except the Xa2 surround speakers), allowing users to access the woofer and midrange/tweeter sections separately for bi-amping or bi-wiring configurations. Additionally, each speaker comes with magnetically attachable/detachable black cloth grills for added convenience.

With a five-year transferable warranty and free shipping on orders over $49, the Airmotiv X loudspeakers aim to elevate audio enthusiasts' expectations without breaking the bank.
