Genelec 8030 Overview

  • 1Description

The Genelec 8030.LSE PowerPak Plus is comprised of five 8030C nearfield monitors matched with a 73060A subwoofer. The system makes for a solid 5.1 system for mixing audio in post-production, less-than-huge studios, and even home theater contexts.

The 8030C is a small, bi-amplified, 2-way speaker with twin 50W amplifiers, a 5" woofer, and a 0.75" tweeter. With its MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) cabinet design, the monitor delivers accurate spatial imaging and playback consistency. On the underside you'll find an Iso-Pod positioning mount that raises and isolates the speaker from the rumble and resonances often caused by surface placement.

The 7360APM subwoofer features a 10" driver powered by a Class-D 300W amplifier. It's 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 provides a bass management unit featuring six separate XLR I/Os as well as a pair of summed signal outputs. 

  • 5 x Genelec 8030C Active Two-Way 5" Studio Monitor (Single)

    The 8030C Active Two-Way 5" Studio Monitor from Genelec provides an accurate reproduction of the source material in a compact design, well suited for near field monitoring, mobile vans, broadcast and TV control rooms, surround systems, home studios, and multimedia applications. The cabinet features Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) technology, which is constructed from all-aluminum in a rounded shape, which minimizes distortions caused by edge diffraction. The metal dome tweeter is surrounded by a smoothly shaped Directivity Controlled Waveguide (DCW), which helps to create an even response when listening both on and off axis.

    The 8030C is built with Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) technology which automatically activates the speaker when an audio signal is detected, and puts it into Standby Mode when no signal is present, reducing the energy consumption to less than 0.5 watts. The 8030C features a 50-watt high frequency amplifier for its 3/4" tweeter, and a 50-watt low-frequency amplifier for its 5" woofer. The bass response is expanded by a rear-facing reflex port, and a separately available Genelec 7050B active subwoofer can be used to monitor a wider array of frequencies.

  • Genelec 7360A SAM 300W 10" SAM-Series Studio Subwoofer

    Delivering a level of performance often associated with much larger enclosures, the Genelec 7360A SAM (Smart Active Monitoring) Subwoofer is a 10", 300W active subwoofer, well suited for discerning professionals in music, post, film, and broadcast. The 7360A combines the Laminar Spiral Enclosure (LSE) technology with AutoCal and GLM control network technologies. Genelec's AutoCal allows the unit to automatically align multiple subwoofers for level, timing, crossover phase, and equalization of room response anomalies. Providing extended low-frequency performance, accurate tonal characteristics, and high dynamic capabilities, the 7360A supports a distributed bass management architecture.

    This subwoofer offers 7.1 channel analog XLR inputs and outputs together with stereo AES/EBU XLR inputs and outputs without the need for additional external AD converters. The 300W Class-D amplifier unit is integrated into the enclosure and contains DSP crossover filters, driver overload and protection circuitry. The Genelec 7360A is the low-frequency monitoring tool for music studios, mobile vans, digital workstations, radio and TV broadcasting, providing remarkable sound clarity, definition, and neutrality.
