  • 1Description

The Genelec 7040A Studio Subwoofer is an ultra-compact studio subwoofer designed to provide accurate low frequency reproduction in limited production spaces.

Offering a professional and reliable low frequency reproduction system in a transportable package, the Genelec 7040A is the ideal to complement Genelec 8010 and 8020 monitors. It extends the low frequency response down to 30 Hz and uses Genelec's patented Laminar Spiral Enclosure (LSE) technology, which provides precise bass articulation and extended low frequency capacity. This stereo subwoofer system can produce 100 dB of undistorted SPL using a 6.5" woofer, and a powerful Genelec-designed Class D amplifier. With its small footprint, the 7040A is a subwoofer solution for recording and composing/project studios, mobile vans and portable recording systems.

    Genelec 7040APM reviews

    7040A Studio Subwoofer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your 8010A's come alive with this sub I bought the 8010's to have some portability when traveling and producing electronic music. They have a roll off at 65 HZ, just where bass gets beefy. Considering the size of the 8010's they do an excellent job in the mid and high frequency range...but they seriously lack in the deep end. I have since supplemented them by adding the 7040A and the difference is astounding. Yes, this sub has weight to it, isn't exactly small and the idea of portability is somewhat limited now but I'd do what is necessary to bring this baby along for the ride. I'm talking fullness across the board when combined with the 8010's that could well stand up to my home studio near fields.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm sold! I am a video editor and I use these with 8010's and I couldn't be happier. They bring my projects to life. I am totally sold on Genelecs and I will be buying bigger and better speakers from them when it makes sense. This simple setup with the Apogee Duet connected to my Mac Pro is more than i need but everything that I want. Being able to immerse yourself in your project is very important to making it he best it can be. Having sound as punchy and clear as this is integral to finding my creative flow state.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG sound with a small footprint I run and operate a busy color suite in South Florida.As a full-time Colorist my first and only concern is helping my clients achieve their vision by making their film and video projects look color perfect.But.I recently wanted to add big theater sound. But - how to do that on a budget, and within the physical limitations of a medium size color suite. Enter Genelec.The 7040A Studio Subwoofer by Genelec is the perfect companion for the 8010's. Easy to set up. Easy to calibrate for your needs. I will always remember my first Genelec moment. As my client's movie trailer played on my color monitor - the 2.1 sound blew me across the room. Close your eyes and you won't believe that this kind of sound is coming out of speakers this small. The 7040A Studio Subwoofer is the key to it all. That - my friend - are the Pros.The Cons? Only one, I can think of: the dip switches. I'm used to volume controls - so it took a bit more fiddling around than I thought I would need to get the sound the way I wanted. The manuals for both speakers and Genelec's website come up short on the kind of help that I needed.It took a little time. But once I understood the dip switch ecosystem - I was good to go.That said - the 7040A Studio Subwoofer by Genelec is a great buy. And, combined with the 8010's - you have one POWERFUL 2.1 audio system. That. Should. Blow. You. Away.Best, Jim --------
