The Genelec 8030.LSE PowerPak is comprised of five 8030A near-field monitors matched with the 7060B subwoofer. The 8030A is a small, bi-amplified, 2-way speaker with twin 40 Watt amplifiers and shielded 5" and 0.75" low- and high-frequency drivers, housed in a sturdy die-cast aluminum enclosure, designed for use in any professional audio production environment where space considerations are paramount.
The two unique features of the 8030A are the MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) cabinet design, and the Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) speaker mount. The MDE design, with its rounded, curved cabinet edges, improves spatial imaging and playback consistency. The Iso-Pod is a positioning mount that raises and isolates the speaker from the rumble and resonances often caused by surface placement.
The two 8030A rear-panel connectors are 3-pin XLRs, providing both an input and an output for daisy-chain 5.1 surround expansion needs, or use with a subwoofer. A modest complement of tone control DIP switches allows for adjustment to the room's acoustic environment, and a bass port improves low-end reproduction.
The 7360APM subwoofer features a 10" driver, powered by a robust 120 Watt amplifier, 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, and a pair of summed signal outputs. The amplifier unit, with active crossover filters and driver overload protection, is adjacent to an ample set of tone, phase, and filter controls.
The 8030A.LSE PowerPak is a worthy and progressive solution as a 5.1 surround monitoring system for studio and A/V post, or multi-media applications.
