Genelec 5040BPM overview

  • 1Description

The Genelec 5040B Active Subwoofer is a compact 6.5" woofer speaker that can play as low as 35 Hz, enabling low frequency sound reinforcement monitoring for music, post, and broadcast studios. For I/O, the subwoofer features both an 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo input for referencing tracks on mobile devices and other stereo line level sources as well as analog inputs for 2.1 and 5.1 surround sound sources.

A set of dip switches allows you to change the phase of the signal between 0 and 270° in 90Ω steps as well as control the bass roll off of the sub. The output level of the sub can either be controlled by a bottom panel knob or with the included remote control.

To conserve energy, the subwoofer is equipped with a Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing Circuit which will automatically power up the unit when a signal is detected and power the unit down into standby mode, using only 0.5 W, when no signal is present.
