Genelec is a Finnish pro audio manufacturer who has been creating professional audio equipment since 1978. Believing in sustainable and authentic sounding audio, Genelec has strived to provide colourless speakers and monitors for professional studios and home studios alike. Genelec also pioneered active speakers, with innovation and accuracy at the heart of their ethos. Genelec understands that home studios can be varied in size and complexity so have created high output, small form speakers that can pack the necessary punch while still being discrete.
Electronic, acoustic innovation
Genelec has packed an array of trademarked technologies into an incredibly small space. with Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) they have engineered a monitor that provides the most accurate delivery of sound for the most challenging spaces. The robust housing is designed using minimum diffraction technology (MDE), the rounded edges ensure that sound waves are directed through the speakers and not through natural points of emission such as pointed triangular edges. Genelec's drive for sustainable products led them to develop a power saving system, developed in 2013 it is called Intelligent Signal Sensing and means when the bass speaker hasn't received a signal for a period of time it will reduce its power draw to below 0.5 watts. This feature is optional and can be turned off.
Reflex port design
Genelec's 8030C Studio Monitor is designed to provide the best possible low-frequency response, by guiding sound pressure caused by low-frequency waveforms Genelec are able to provide accurate bass articulation. Genelec's 8030C Studio Monitor is fitted with ISO Pod technology rendering the speaker acoustically decoupled from the ISO Pod but providing complete support, this allows you to tilt the speaker to face up or down depending on the arrangement of your studio. A guide is provided for achieving the best results in the most challenging of studio environments. All Genelec speakers have an adaptive room response so as to provide the fullest most accurate sonic experience possible. The Genelec 8030C Studio Monitor also includes protection circuitry, the circuitry senses signal levels and depending on whether there are continuous peaks will lower the power without affecting the sound and protecting the speaker from any damage.
