Natick, MA (June 14, 2018)—Genelec has unveiled its new 7050C, which is said to offer an extended low-frequency response and lower distortion than its long-lived predecessor, the 7050B.
The new 7050C subwoofer sports a newly redesigned LSE enclosure, a reported 3 dB increase in SPL capability, plus a bypassable professional bass management system and universal switched-mode power supply.
The 7050C provides five input and output channels with 85 Hz lowpass/highpass filters, plus a discrete 120 Hz LFE signal input with selectable +10 dB boost. The 7050C measures 16.125 inches in height, with a width of 13.75 inches and a depth of 12.5625 inches. It contains a single 8-inch, magnetically shielded low-frequency driver housed in a Genelec LSE spiral enclosure.

The 7050C can be calibrated to its surroundings by using a series of rear panel dip switches. Adjustable settings include phase and low frequency roll-off, the activation of the +10 dB LFE level, and the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption to 0.5 W in standby.
The original Genelec 7050A subwoofer debuted in 2002, while the 7050B followed in 2005. “The 7050 name is respected in studios all over the world, so as we developed this new version of a much-loved classic, we treated it with great care,” said Genelec managing director Siamäk Niaghan. “The 7050C is so advanced that it could easily have represented an entirely new product, but instead we chose to continue the legacy of a well-established model, made greater still by this new step forward.”
