Genelec, (Booths N1726 and SL1143) has created a compact, full-range stereo monitoring solution designed to meet the needs of the project, recording, multimedia and postproduction studio environments. The 8030A Triple Play full-range stereo monitoring system consists of two Genelec 8030A two-way, bi-amplified active MDE monitors plus Genelec’s 7050A LSE active subwoofer.

The 7050A subwoofer is specifically engineered to complement the 8030A active monitor. The 8030A monitors are efficiently sized for convenient placement on a desktop as part of a multimedia/workstation audio system. The 7050A, when appropriately placed, can overcome many of the low-frequency problems associated with freestanding full-range speakers in small rooms. This three-piece system has in-room flat frequency response—38 Hz to 20 kHz (+/-3 dB)—and each component features an integrated active balanced crossover, driver protection circuit, and dedicated power amplifier. The Genelec Triple Play can produce peak acoustic levels of over 110 dB SPL @ 1 meter.

The Triple Play system includes two 8030A two-way, bi-amplified active monitors from Genelec’s 8000 MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) Series. In order to improve frequency and power responses, Genelec has designed an enclosure featuring rounded edges and gently curved front and sides. In addition to unsurpassed frequency response, the minimized cabinet edge diffraction provides superb imaging qualities. The 8030A uses an entirely aluminum MDE design with integrated Advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW), yielding large internal volumes with outstanding mechanical strength. Also included with each 8030A monitor is the Genelec Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler). The Iso-Pod is a clever mounting stand that allows for monitoring in either vertical or horizontal orientation. It enables the end user to accurately aim the acoustic axis of the monitor to the listener, as well as mechanically decouple it from the surface on which it rests.

The 8030A is a compact close-field system with incorporated DCW technology that provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments. Powered by a pair of 40 Watt amplifiers, the Genelec 8030A monitors offer a wide frequency response of 58 Hz to 20 kHz (+/-2 dB) from a 5-inch woofer and 3/4inch hard-domed tweeter. In addition to extremely low harmonic distortion, the 8030A has a front-mounted volume control, and rear panel bass and treble tilt room response controls. The Genelec 8030A active monitors measure 11 1/4 x 7 x 7 1/16 inches (HWD), and are housed in a die-cast aluminum enclosure. Each speaker is also EM shielded for additional protection when used in close proximity to video monitors.
