GENELEC EXHIBITS 8020A BI-AMPLIFIED MONITORING SYSTEM
AND 7050B LSE™ SUBWOOFER
— The new Genelec 7050B LSE™ subwoofer provides the perfect
partner to the
8020A for both stereo and surround sound applications —
119th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2005 — Genelec,
the world’s longstanding leader in active monitoring, is showing
its smallest speaker system to date — the new 8020A (8 7/8"
x 6" x 5 5/8" [height with Iso-Pod™ 9 1/2"]). The
system has been designed for monitoring in difficult listening environments,
particularly those characterized by lack of space. However, size is
no handicap to performance as the 8020A two-way active monitoring system
incorporates Genelec’s acoustic design innovations to minimize
all forms of distortion.
The 8020A has a die-cast aluminum Minimum Diffraction
Enclosure™ (MDE™), which features large internal volumes,
softly curved edges and outstanding mechanical strength. As a result,
the imaging accuracy and low frequency extension from such a compact
enclosure is truly astounding.
The 8020A also incorporates Genelec’s advanced Directivity
Control Waveguide (DCW™), which provides an amazingly smooth on
and off axis response, while the long, curved reflex port ends in a
wide flare for excellent bass articulation.
Each monitor features a 4" bass driver along with
a 3/4" tweeter loaded into a new Genelec advanced Directivity Control
Waveguide (DCW). The free field frequency response is 66 Hz to 20 kHz
(± 2.5 dB). Maximum peak SPL output per pair with music material
is 105 dB. Bass and treble drivers are each powered by 20-Watt amplifiers.
The 8020A is magnetically shielded for use in environments
where video monitors are in close proximity. Omnimount and Genelec monitor
stand fixing holes are also standard. The 8020A comes in white and silver,
in addition to black.
The 8020A can be combined with the new 7050B Laminar Spiral
Enclosure™ (LSE™) subwoofer to provide a powerful, bass-managed
and wide bandwidth surround sound monitoring system.
Genelec 7050B Active Subwoofer
The new Genelec 7050B LSE subwoofer provides a perfect partner to the
8020A for both stereo and surround applications. The 7050B extends the
LF response down to 25 Hz with amazing bass articulation. This is made
possible in such a compact enclosure, thanks to Genelec's patented Laminar
Spiral Enclosure (LSE) technology. With 5 main input/output channels
and a dedicated LFE channel with 85/120 Hz reproduction bandwidth selection,
the 8020A/7050B system fulfills the needs of 5.1 productions. The 7050B
can also be used to complement Genelec’s 8030A monitor.
The 7050B is designed to complement Genelec’s 8020A
active monitors in stereo and surround applications, and the 8030A in
a stereo only setup. The subwoofer features a single 8" proprietary
driver with a 70-Watt power amplifier. It has a frequency response from
25 Hz – 85 Hz (± 3dB), and the ability to deliver short-term
sine wave of 100 dB SPL. Like all Genelec LSE active subwoofers, the
7050B also features extremely low distortion.
