Neat Acoustics - Motive SX2 Loudspeaker - Walnut
The Motive range was a significant development for Neat as it marked the entry into the more mainstream market which was largely dominated by much bigger manufacturers.
A new tweeter was developed for this range, loosely based on the inverted titanium dome used in the original Ultimatum models. This tweeter offers a very detailed, uncompressed performance and gives the Motive models a level of dynamic and micro-dynamic insight unrivaled at its price point.
The entire Motive range was revised to the ‘SX’ status in 2013 using an improved version of the NMT tweeter – the SXT. The SXT tweeter employs the same massive magnet system, but with an anodized Aluminium dome replacing the previous titanium dome.
The crossovers, tuning, and internals have also been updated, resulting in a wide-ranging improvement in all-round performance.Motive SX2At only 76cm high, the Motive SX2 is an exceptionally compact floorstander for those who want all the musical performance of a Neat floorstander without taking over the living room.
This loudspeaker uses a two-way configuration, with the bass/midrange driver and the tweeter operating within separate spaces. The bass reflex port is fitted to the bottom panel of the cabinet and is vented through an outlet in the stylishly sculpted MDF plinth.In spite of the compact dimensions, the Motive SX2 surprises with its astonishing bass and beautifully open mid range.
The tweeter is the new and upgraded unit used throughout the Motive SX range and features a huge screened magnet assembly and a 25mm inverted anodised aluminium dome.
This type of tweeter is usually only found in more expensive high-end loudspeakers and is therefore an exceptional inclusion to the Motive SX designs.
