FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GENELEC DISPLAYS 7073A ACTIVE SUBWOOFER SYSTEM
— Genelec’s 7073A includes full 6.1 bass management,
making it ideal for large surround sound or stereo installations —
119th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2005 —
World-renowned Finnish professional loudspeaker designer Genelec is
showing the 7073A Active Subwoofer. Designed for large-scale installations
in either stereo or surround, the 7073A features four 12" drivers,
fast-acting, low distortion amplifiers, 124 dB SPL capability down to
19 Hz, plus a full 6.1-capable bass management system for impressive
flexibility. In addition, all electronics are integrated into the 7073A
subwoofer cabinet, including active crossover filters, driver overload
protection circuits, and power amplifiers.
The 7073A’s bass management system features six
inputs and outputs (L/C/R front and L/C/R rear), plus LFE input and
summed signal output connectors. The dedicated LFE input (which can
be set to two bandwidths, 19-85 or 19-120 Hz) has a low-pass filter
selectable to 85 or 120 Hz, plus a +10 dB sensitivity switch. If the
LFE channel includes frequencies above the crossover frequency, the
system’s “redirect” function sends such signals to
the center front output to ensure they are audible.
To aid in crossover alignment, an integrated 85 Hz test
signal generator is built in, while dual bass rolloff and phase matching
controls allow accurate tailoring of the sub to its environment. The
bass rolloff can be adjusted in 2 dB steps, while the phase matching
controls offer four positions, from 0 to -270 degrees.
The low pass section of the bass management system has
adjustable sensitivity for simple level matching with the main loudspeakers
in the installation. The six HPF sections have 0 dB passband gain and
can be bypassed with an optional switch to allow accurate determination
of the effect of the sub on the overall system.
The four drivers used in the 7073A are 12" diameter,
dual voice coil, long-throw types, while the amplifiers can deliver
up to 1 kilowatt RMS of short-term power with minimal THD and intermodulation
distortion. The amplifiers also features power-on muting and driver
overload protection. The powerful 7073A Active Subwoofer measures 20-5/8"
H x 56-11/16" W x 22" D and weighs 265 lbs.
The Genelec 7073A is available immediately with a MSRP
