The 8050B Active Two-Way 8" Studio Monitor from Genelec provides an accurate reproduction of the source material in a compact form-factor with high output. Its die-cast aluminum enclosure features a rounded shape, which minimizes distortions caused by edge diffraction. The metal dome tweeter is surrounded by a smoothly-shaped Directivity Controlled Waveguide, which helps to create an even response when listening both on and off axis.

The 8050B 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 the energy consumption to less than 0.5 watts. The 8050B features a 120 watt high frequency amplifier for its 1" tweeter, and a 150 watt low frequency amplifier for its 8" 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.

An included Iso-Pod table stand insulates the speaker from vibration and enables you to tilt its position upward or downward
The Iso-Pod can be attached to the base or side of the monitor, for vertical or horizontal positioning
Well-suited for near-field studio monitoring, control rooms, editing suites, surround sound applications and multimedia entertainment systems
Rear-facing Tone Controls enable you to optimize the speaker to its environment
Threaded holes for Omnimount Series 60 brackets and K&M loudspeaker mounts
More compatible mounting accessories, such as ceiling mounts and wall brackets, are available separately
