Upgrade your home setup, project studio, or production suite with this B&H Kit, which includes a pair of Genelec 8020 Bi-Amplified Active Monitors, two tripod-base monitor stands, and a passive monitor controller. With a 4" woofer, a 3/4" metal dome tweeter, and two Class-D power amplifiers in an aluminum low-diffraction enclosure, each monitor provides a frequency response of 62 Hz to 20 kHz. Thanks to a small footprint, convenient volume/mute/mono controls, and versatile placement options, this kit is ideal for use in recording, editing, and mixing environments where space is limited.
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.
Senal PMC-II Passive Monitor Controller
The PMC-II Passive Monitor Controller from Senal is for anyone using powered monitors that needs a precise and easy way to control monitor volume. Featuring XLR/TRS combo inputs as well as TRS stereo mini-jack inputs, the controller is compatible with a variety of professional and consumer audio equipment, and it can be used anywhere a separate volume controller is needed.
Designed to be inserted between powered monitors and a computer, a sound card, or an audio interface, the PMC-II adds the convenience of accurately adjusting your monitors' volume without having to access the computer or sound card's volume control. In addition, it is equipped with a 1/8" TRS stereo mini-input jack and is compatible with any smartphone, tablet, MP3 player, or device with a stereo mini-jack output.

Auray LMS-335 Studio Monitor Stands (Pair)
The Auray LMS-335 Studio Monitor Stands are durably constructed and designed to support studio monitors at the optimal listening position in professional and home recording studios.
Each stand is constructed from steel tubing and a 9" steel plate. An ergonomic locking knob secures the stand, and a locking pin is inserted into six pre-drilled holes to allow the height of each monitor to be adjusted between 35 and 58.5".
The three-leg design has a base spread of 23" for stability and a geometry that allows for the stand to fit around corners and beside studio furniture. They come with both interchangeable rubber feet for hard wood floors as well as metal spike feet for carpeted floors. The necessary tools and hardware for assembling the stands and changing the feet from rubber pads to metal spikes are included. Two touch-fastener straps are included on the central supports for neatly securing cables to the stand.
