The Genelec 8020.LSE TRIPAK 2.1 Stereo monitoring system is comprised of 28020A nearfield monitors matched with the 7050B subwoofer. The 8020A is a small, bi-amplified, 2-way speaker with twin 20 Watt amplifiers and shielded 4" and .75" Low and High frequency drivers, housed in a sturdy die-cast aluminum enclosure, and designed for use in any professional audio production environment where space considerations are paramount.
The two unique features of the 8020A are the MDE(Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) cabinet design, and the Iso-Pod(Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) speaker mount. The MDE design, with it's rounded, curved cabinet edges, improves spatial imaging and playback consistency. The Iso-Pod is a positioning mount that raises and isolates the speaker from the rumble and resonances often caused by surface placement.
The two 8020A rear panel connectors are 3-pin XLR's, providing both an input, and an output, for daisy-chain 5.1 surround expansion needs, or use with a subwoofer. A modest complement of tone control DIP switches allows for adjustment to the room's acoustic environment, and a bass port improves low end reproduction.
The 7050B subwoofer features an 8" driver, powered by a robust 70 Watt amplifier, housed in Genelec's proprietary LSE(Laminar Spiral Enclosure) bass reflex cabinet. This design combines minimized enclosure noise with tight, consistent signal dispersion, a characteristic of laminar.
The rear panel of the 7050B provides a bass management unit featuring 5 separate XLR I/O's and a dedicated LFE input for mixing or monitoring film-related music and sound effects in Dolby Digital, DTS, and other encoding formats. The amplifier unit, with active crossover filters and driver overload protection, is adjacent to an ample set of Bass Roll-Off, Phase and LFE Bandwidth DIP switch controls.
The 8020.LSE TRIPAK is a worthy and progressive solution as a 2.1 Stereo monitoring system for studio and A/V post or multi-media applications.
