The Genelec 8020D.LSE Espresso is a 5.1 surround sound monitoring system designed for mixing and critical listening. It can be used in post-production mixing, or to create 5.1 surround music mixes in pro audio contexts. Five 8020D studio monitors are included, which offer a 4" woofer, a 0.75" tweeter, a biamped, Class-D design, and wide on-/off-axis response. The 7050C subwoofer, on the other hand, offers an 8" woofer, a Class-D 130W amplifier, an integrated bass management system, and a frequency response extending down to 24 Hz.
Genelec 8020D Studio Monitor (Producer Finish)
Styled in what the manufacturer has dubbed a "Producer Finish", and now utilizing Class-D amplification, the Genelec 8020D Active Two-Way 4" Studio Monitor provides an accurate reproduction of the source material in a compact form factor. Its die-cast aluminum enclosure features a rounded shape, which minimizes frequency and reflection distortions caused by edge diffraction. The metal dome tweeter is surrounded by Genelec's Directivity Controlled Waveguide, which helps to create an even response when listening both on and off axis.
The 8020D is built with Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) technology, which automatically activates the speaker when an audio signal is detected and puts it in standby mode when no signal is present, reducing its energy consumption to less than 0.5W. The 8020D features a 50W high-frequency amplifier for its ¾" tweeter, and a 50W low-frequency amplifier for its 4" woofer. The bass response is expanded by a rear-facing reflex port, and a separately available Genelec subwoofer can be used to monitor a wider array of frequencies.
Genelec 7050C - 130W 8" Active Studio Subwoofer
Building upon the success of the 7050A and 7050B models, the Genelec 7050C Studio Subwoofer is an 8", 130W active subwoofer, well suited for discerning professionals in music, post, film, and broadcast. The 7050C boasts several improvements including a bypassable onboard bass management system, lower distortion, a universal mains voltage switched-mode power supply, and an increased maximum SPL of 103 dB.
The subwoofer works in stereo or 5.1 channel configurations using analog XLR inputs and outputs. The integrated bass management section features five input and output channels with 85 Hz low-pass/high-pass filters, plus a discrete 120 Hz LFE signal input with selectable +10 dB boost.
The 7050C utilizes a magnetically shielded low frequency driver, housed in a Genelec LSE spiral enclosure, which delivers an extended low-frequency response down to 24 Hz with low distortion. Rear panel DIP switches to allow the user to adjust subwoofer phase and low-frequency roll-off, engage the +10 dB LFE level, and activate and control the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption down to a mere 0.5 W in standby mode. The Genelec 7050C ships with a standard IEC power cord.
