The Airmotiv T-Zero is a two-way floor standing tower loudspeaker that delivers a superb listening experience with both stereo and surround sound systems. The Airmotiv T-Zero combines exceptional accuracy, amazing precision and detail retrieval, and unsurpassed smoothness - all in one truly great sounding loudspeaker.
The Airmotiv T-Zero features a 32 x 25 mm Airmotiv folded ribbon tweeter, and a pair of 5-1/4” woven fiber drivers. The dual 5-1/4” drivers share the same 2500 Hz electrical crossover frequency. The upper driver is optimized for the critical midrange dispersion, while the lower driver is optimized for low frequency response. The Airmotiv T-Zero is the perfect choice for an economical high performance stereo sound system, or a high-quality surround sound or home theater audio system. Their compact footprint makes the T-Zero an especially good choice when sound quality is important but space is limited.
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. 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. High quality gold plated binding posts are included for secure and flexible connectivity.
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 mid-woofer drivers deliver a very smooth response across the critical midrange frequencies, with very little coloration, and superb detail.
Both 5-1/4” drivers share the same 2500 Hz electrical crossover frequency. The upper driver is optimized for the critical midrange frequencies, while the lower one is optimized for low frequency response.
- Optimized for outstanding low frequency performance.
A Well Designed, Attractive, and Practical Cabinet
Our Minimal Acoustic Signature™ cabinet, with its faceted baffle, minimizes room interactions and reduces edge diffraction, giving you exceptionally clean transient performance and precise imaging.
The acoustically inert 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 futuristic contours of the Airmotiv T-Zero, 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.
Precision Crossover and Flexible Connection Options
The precision crossover, carefully designed and optimized to provide perfect synergy with the drivers and cabinet of the Airmotiv T-Zero, features audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations.

Systems that work together

After a ton of research I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of T-Zeros and I have to say I couldn't be happier! The sound that these things can produce is unbelievable! If you are thinking about getting a pair of these don't hesitate. You would be hard pressed to find a pair of towers under $1k that sound better.
The first day upon arrival, I was slightly hesitant. However, after a few days of low to moderate levels of break-in, including the Ayre component break-in CD, the audio reproduction became very detailed, airy, transparent, with great imaging. Any initial hesitation quickly vanished. And, every day I hear subtle nuances in recordings I was very familiar with. Simply - an amazing value. Having owned Magneplaners (cat decided they were a good scratching post) I was attracted to the folded tweeter. It reminded me of the Heil Air Motion Transformer design from the late 1970s. Emotiva has hit it out of the park! The T-Zeros will deliver and then exceed any expectations you might have. The lows down to 48Hz are tight and accurate, voices seem to float in your listening environment. An Emotiva PT-100 pre-amplifier serves as foundation, and the T-Zeros are driven by Emotiva A-300 power amp which drives the 4 ohm load without breaking a sweat. The system also incorporates a Martin Logan powered sub up to 50Hz. My listening environment is immersed with beautiful music. You cannot go wrong with the T-Zeros, do not hesitate - and treat yourself to wonderful listening! Music is indeed the universal language. What other entity can take you to a specific time and place as a song can? Think about that. Especially, when a song is reproduced in such a detailed presentation. One of Life's great pleasures!
After owning a pair of B1 speakers and being very excited about how great sounding they are I decided to give these a shot. They arrived double boxed as most of Emotivas products do. Initially I was a bit worried the bass wouldn’t be low on these as the frequency rating on the specs area is rated similar to the B1s. These speakers have excellent low bass and fill a midsized room just fine. I ran a frequency test with frequencies starting at 20Hz and up to 40Hz. The speakers were inaudible until they hit around 35hz. 36Hz was played loud and clear. These speakers don’t exactly sound similar to the B1. They are great speakers and an absolute steal at this price. I’m not sure there is another set floor standing speakers at this price that sound this good. Putting these next to my Polk monitior60ii speakers these blew them away in Clarity, Bass, Treble, and Dynamics.
Very good and loundon
I picked these up to replace an old, bulky pair of off brand towers. These were so much smaller so I was a little concerned. I had no need for concern. Not only do these little guys put out some power, their sound is so clean and rich. I couldn't be happier with them!
