Las Vegas, NV (April 25, 2005)–Genelec has created a compact, full-range stereo monitoring solution specifically designed to meet the needs of the project, recording, multimedia, and postproduction studio environments. The 8030A Triple Play full-range stereo monitoring system consists of two Genelec 8030A two-way, bi-amplified active MDE monitors plus Genelec’s 7050A LSE active subwoofer. The system is able to deliver clean, wideband sound with performance that rivals much larger setups.
The 7050A subwoofer is specifically engineered to complement the 8030A active monitor. When combined, they deliver a smoothness of frequency response comparable to larger Genelec monitors, while offering great flexibility of location. The 8030A monitors are efficiently sized for convenient placement on a desktop as part of a multimedia/workstation audio system, and visually appear remarkably unobtrusive in a typical control room or project studio. The 7050A, when appropriately placed, can overcome many of the low-frequency problems associated with freestanding full-range speakers in small rooms. This three-piece system has in-room flat frequency response–38Hz to 20kHz (+/-3 dB)–and each component features an integrated active balanced crossover, driver protection circuit, and dedicated power amplifier. The Genelec Triple Play can produce peak acoustic levels of over 110 dB SPL @ 1 meter.
The Triple Play system includes two 8030A two way, bi-amplified active monitors from Genelec’s revolutionary 8000 MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) Series, which takes a new approach to enclosure design, driver technology, and active electronics. Also included with each 8030A monitor is the unique Genelec Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler), a clever mounting stand that allows for monitoring in either vertical or horizontal orientation.
Designed to complement the 8030A, Genelec’s critically acclaimed 7050A LSE Series Active Subwoofer employs the company’s proprietary Laminar Spiral Enclosure (LSE) technology. The 7050A’s cabinet is made of sheet metal rolled into a spiral and clamped between thick MDF side panels to form a seamless, gently curving tube port with excellent laminar flow characteristics and minimal turbulence noise.
