One of the reasons these speakers are so brilliant, is that they are physically large compared to a bookshelf design - please check dimensions and make sure you are definitely happy with a speaker this size before purchasing.
These floorstanders are supplied with adjustable spikes, which hold the speaker absolutely rigid, giving the best sound. The spikes actually cause LESS damage to carpets than castors or rubber feet, because a spike passes through the carpet pile and leaves no mark. Spikes should still be used on wooden floors - if you are worried about floor damage, simply use spike protector discs (which can be purchased cheaply from Amazon) or even a five pence coin, under each spike.

Top of the Motive SX range - outstanding performance, yet super-compact design!

Although this is the taller of the two floorstanders in the Motive SX range, the SX1 is still a very  compact and elegant model. It will blend discreetly into any living room, yet its performance gives little away to much 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. 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 gives the SX1 and incredibly open, 3-dimensional presentation.

The original Neat Motive range was excellent, but this latest re-working to incorporate significant design changes into the new SX incarnation (most notably a brand new tweeter) has resulted in a huge jump in performance. As a result, all the SX range speakers have been incredibly well received, with the SX1 picking up three excellent reviews within just a few months of its launch.

From time to time we get near mint, 'slight cosmetic seconds' of this model, at a significant saving off SRP - click here for details
