Airmotiv Passive Loudspeakers: Music Runs in the Family
Your speakers are the single most important component in your audio system; they’re the part that turns a simple electrical signal into the emotional experience that is music. Great speakers can transform an audio system that’s merely good into one that can deliver a truly transcendent listening experience. Our new Airmotiv passive loudspeakers represent the culmination of years of research and experience in producing both home and professional loudspeakers, and were designed from the ground up with this critical mission in mind. They were designed from the start to be equally at home in an audiophile stereo system or a high-end home theater, and combine excellent technical performance, superb sound quality, elegant good looks, and excellent value. Our design philosophy is simple: If a speaker can reproduce the entire audible spectrum, as accurately as possible, with very little distortion or coloration, then it will sound good – whether you’re playing classical music, rock, or your favorite blockbuster movie.
All of the members of our Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family combine meticulous design, extensive testing, and in-depth listening tests with a wide variety of musical material, to deliver the best possible technical performance and sound quality. Our Airmotiv™ high-frequency transducers deliver flat frequency response, low distortion, virtually nonexistent signal compression, smooth off-axis response, superb transparency, and uncanny imaging. Advanced woven fiber midrange drivers deliver smooth frequency response, and detailed lifelike midrange with very low coloration, and our woofers include high-temperature voice coils and vented pole pieces to ensure crisp bass at all listening levels. Carefully designed precision crossovers, crafted with audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations, tie it all together. And, finally, our custom cabinets are crafted from thick, heavily braced, acoustically inert HDF to ensure maximum rigidity and resistance to stray vibration, with a front panel machined from a solid slab of 25mm HDF. The faceted front panel design, borrowed from our studio monitors, not only adds a stylishly futuristic look to our Airmotiv speakers, but also serves a very practical purpose – to minimize diffraction effects and room interactions.
Airmotiv Sound Quality
Of course, the goal of all that design and testing is to produce a speaker that sounds really great and, after extensive listening tests, we’re pleased to report that our new Airmotiv Passive Loudspeakers sound truly superb with all types of music – from individual vocalists and intimate jazz ensembles, to full classical orchestras, to heavy metal bands and synthetic electronica. Just pair your Airmotiv Loudspeakers with any high-quality power amplifier (we think ours sound especially good), and you’ll get perfectly balanced sound, with outstanding clarity, and superb rendition of even the finest details. All of the speakers in the Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family are carefully timbre matched to work well together and to deliver a cohesive audio image in any stereo or surround sound installation.
Phenomenal sound quality and great specs alone don’t make a great speaker, which is why we’ve included a long list of practical and convenient operational features on our Airmotiv Loudspeakers. The front bezel is finished with multiple coats of attractive satin finish black lacquer, which looks elegant while resisting fingerprints and scratches, and the sides are covered with tough, good-looking textured black vinyl. And, for those of you who prefer to keep their technology under wraps, all of our new Airmotiv speakers include removable, magnetically-attached, grilles. We’ve also included bi-amp/bi-wire terminals on several models, including the Airmotiv T1+’s, for even higher performance.
A Superb Speaker Starts With Great Drivers
Our state-of-the-art Airmotiv™ folded ribbon high-frequency transducer delivers exceptionally flat on-axis frequency response, smooth off-axis response, low distortion, virtually nonexistent signal compression, amazing transparency, and uncanny imaging.
The advanced 5-1/4” woven fiber midrange driver delivers a very smooth response across the critical midrange frequencies, with very little coloration, and superb detail.
Dual 6” woven fiber low-frequency transducers, with high-temperature voice coils, and vented pole pieces deliver clean, powerful bass – even when reproducing complex musical passages.
A Well Designed, Attractive, and Practical Cabinet
Our Minimal Acoustic Signature™ cabinet minimizes room interactions and reduces edge diffraction, giving you exceptionally clean transient performance and precise imaging.
The acoustically inert 25mm milled HDF front panels, 15mm side and rear panels, and extensive bracing, serve to further reduce vibrations, and contribute to the Airmotiv speaker’s clean precise imaging.
Several coats of satin-finish lacquer give the front bezel of the Airmotiv speakers an elegant understated appearance, while a tough yet attractive vinyl covering protects the sides and rear from damage and fingerprints.
An attractive black cloth grille complements the contours of the Airmotiv T1+, and provides a convenient way to keep your technology under wraps. The grille is magnetically attached, and is easily removed for cleaning – or for showing your Airmotiv speakers off to your audiophile friends.
- Permanently affixed outrigger-style feet with optional rubber and metal spikes to help keep the tower stable.
Precision Crossover and Flexible Connection Options
The upgraded precision crossover, carefully designed and optimized to provide perfect synergy with the drivers and cabinet of the Airmotiv T1+, features audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations.
Bi-amp terminals allow you to access the woofer and midrange/tweeter sections of the Airmotiv T1+ separately for bi-amping or bi-wiring.

Not going to get too in depth with a review as there are already a slew out there on the web. Purchased these on a whim.. Glad I did. One of the best pair of floorstanding loudspeakers, in this price range, that I've heard. Totally smooth and seamless integration between drivers via a 3-way design. I mostly use these in a two channel music system. They do a great job. I still haven't turned my sub-woofer back on.. Great bass, smooth mids and highs. Now after a week of run-in, they have fully opened up and emit a huge 3-D soundstage. About four feet away from all walls and slight toe-in seems to do the trick. At least in my room. They need room to breathe. My Emotiva XPA-DR2 drives them to perfection. Once again Emotiva, you've impressed me.
I have been an audiophile for well near 40 years and I am simply amazed at how well these small T1+ tower speakers sound!!! I've had klipshorn Cornwalls and VMPS tower speakers for most of my life. However, I don't blast my speakers any more. I just want to sit in my lazyboy chair and listen to some good jazz like Diana Krall or some good classical music at a normal listening level. The detail that these T1+ speakers provide is just phenomenal!!!!! They are just so smooth sounding, they just completely relax you in all respects!!!!! No more listener fatigue!!! Back in the Disco age people liked to really blast their speakers. But, when you get a little bit older, you don't really want to do that sort of thing that much any more. So, the bottomline is you can't go wrong with these speakers!! They sound better than other speakers that cost 3 times more!!!! The build quality is excellent!!!! And, they sound really good with my new German hybrid/tube amp. So, what are you waiting for. Go on and order these speakers!!!! Quit contemplating getting these and just go ahead and buy them. You have 30 days to make up your mind if you want to keep them!! You simply can't go wrong with these speakers!!!
