With our Form Series, form really does meet function. Resulting in speakers which combine stunning design with outstanding sound reproduction.

Our aim with the Form Series was to create an entry-level series, which remained true to the open, airy and detailed signature sound of Marten and would fit into the interior of any contemporary home.

The unusual triangular shape is acoustically optimised to allow the speakers to totally disappear within the soundstage. So when you close your eyes, all that’s left is the music.

 
 
 
 
 

Marten Form Series Speakers

The Form Series represents a new concept of loudspeaker design from Leif Marten Olofsson, chief designer and founder of Swedish manufacturer Marten. After creating award-winning loudspeakers that have reached out to audiophiles around the world, he wanted a new challenge—to create a beautiful and simple geometrical form that would fit into the interior of any contemporary home, yet provide the high-end sound quality and cabinetry for which Marten loudspeakers have become so well known.

It goes without saying that the cabinets of the Form Series speakers are extremely well built, but why the unusual shape? The triangular configuration of the FormFloor and FormCentre models is acoustically optimized to allow the speakers to totally disappear within the soundstage. If you close your eyes, the only thing that’s left is the music.

The cabinet of a high-end loudspeaker is not only one of the most important contributions to its stellar performance, but one of the most obvious. There are other, less obvious things that are also very important. The FormFloor and FormCentre models employ custom, pure ceramic midrange/bass drivers that give dynamic and powerful bass (from 36 Hz) and a transparent and musical midrange. The ribbon tweeters, also custom-made, provide sweet, seductive sound all the way up to 40 kHz.

The crossover components include air-core conductors, polypropylene capacitors, and metal film resistors. The cabinets are internally damped with washed and combed Swedish sheep wool. The feet are made of steel, and feature Resonance Damped Compound (RDC) cones. The FormSub contains a 10" extreme-long-throw driver that is powered by a verypowerful 400W class D amp. The FormSub is very musical, and works very well in both two-channel and multi-channel systems.

All FormSeries loudspeakers are provided with magnetically-attached grilles that allow the user to decide if he wants to keep them on or off—the speakers look and sound great with or without them. The down-firing bass reflex ports make it easy to position the FormSeries loudspeakers in the listening environment.

A milestone not only for Marten, but for speaker design in general.

Our flagship series uses exclusive materials throughout. Carbon fibre cabinets. Beautifully crafted solid wood work made by Sweden’s finest craftsmen. Ceramic and diamond drivers, with tweeters in pure diamond. The speakers in the Coltrane Series are the first to use this combination.

The result? Extreme clarity, speed and resolution, and uncannily musical even at low volume. Making the Coltrane Series the ultimate reference in sound reproduction.

Back in 1998, our philosophy of simple design and unembellished sound reproduction was encapsulated by our Heritage Series.
Today, we’ve retained that philosophy and refined the details, resulting in speakers that deliver a clean and invisible sound source and dry bass. Everything you expect as a true audiophile.

This year, the series is upgraded with new bass units, tweeters, feet, cones, pucks and improved and refined crossover.
