The 8240A 180W 6.5" Active 2-Way DSP Monitor Speaker (Black) from Genelec is an advanced 2-way monitor speaker ideal for use in professional studios. The speaker has a Minimum Diffraction Enclosure that houses a 6.5" woofer and a 0.75" tweeter. A Directivity Control Waveguide works with the MDE enclosure to provide a flat frequency response, excellent imaging precision, and minimal listening fatigue. A flow-optimized bass-reflex port provides solid low frequency response without compression, distortion, or port noise. The bi-amplified design provides 180W of total output power for a strong, clear performance with exceptionally low distortion.
The speaker features DSP crossover filters, magnetic shielding, and overload protection circuitry for smooth, reliable operation. Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software (sold separately) allows you to manage all of the speaker functions easily, such as level adjustment, distance delays, room EQ, and more. The speaker has both analog and digital inputs, plus a digital thru connector for flexibility. The included Iso-Pod base decouples the speaker from its mounting surface to eliminate coloration caused by vibrations and reflections. The speaker also has integrated rear support points for floor and wall stands, plus an M10 threaded mounting hole on the base.
