Neat Motive SX1

Although this is the taller of the two floorstanders in the Motive SX range, the SX1 is nevertheless a compact and elegant model. It will blend discreetly into any living room whilst its performance gives little away to larger and more expensive models.

This loudspeaker uses a two and half-way configuration, with the bass/midrange driver and the tweeter operating within a sealed enclosure.

Description

Neat Motive SX1

The Neat Motive SX1 is a high-performance floorstanding loudspeaker from the Neat Motive range it is perfectly proportioned and sounds superb!

The Motive range was introduced in 2005 and revamped in 2013.

The key objectives of the Motive range are:

1) To deliver exceptional performance from compact and attractive contemporary cabinets.
2) Easy-to-drive designs with a consistent and coherent sound across the range.
3) High standard of AV/multi-channel performance.

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 unrivalled 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 anodised 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.

Although this is the taller of the two floorstanders in the Motive SX range, the SX1 is nevertheless a compact and elegant model. It will blend discreetly into any living room whilst its performance gives little away to larger and more expensive models.

This loudspeaker uses a two and half-way configuration, with the bass/midrange driver and the tweeter operating within a sealed enclosure. The sub-bass drive unit is housed separately in a reflex-tuned section below. 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 SX1 manages to accurately reproduce genuinely low bass notes with spacious and well-focused stereo imagery.

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.
