If you love the compact format of the 8010 and 8020 models but demand higher SPL and more bass extension, meet the Genelec 8030C.

The bi-amplified GENELEC 8030C is a two way active monitoring loudspeaker designed to be small but still have high output, low coloration, and broad bandwidth.

The 8030C is ideal for near field monitoring, mobile vans, broadcast and TV control rooms, surround sound systems, home studios, multimedia applications and also for use with computer soundcards. As an active loudspeaker, it contains drivers, power amplifiers, active crossover filters and protection circuitry. The MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) loudspeaker enclosure is made of die-cast aluminium and shaped to reduce edge diffraction. Combined with the advanced Directivity Control WaveguideTM (DCWTM), this design provides excellent frequency balance in difficult acoustic environments. If necessary, the bass response of the 8030C can be extended with a suitable Genelec subwoofer.

Welcome to the sweet spot
A consistent best-seller, the 8030C sits in the perfect sweet spot of big monitor performance and small footprint. It offers precise imaging and staggering detail, but can go louder and lower than its smaller siblings – making it the perfect choice for slightly larger spaces.

Mixes that translate
The trademark rounded cabinet design of the 8030C delivers uncoloured reference performance both on and off axis, and rear panel room compensation switches let you optimise the 8030C for your individual room acoustics. All this helps you produce mixes that translate beautifully to other rooms and systems.

When your project requires a powerful performance with no sacrifice in quality, the Genelec 8030C active studio monitor is designed to exceed your expectations. The 8030C, introduced in 2017, even delivers 4 dB higher SPL and has a lower energy consumption than earlier models of 8030.

As strikingly stylish as it is sonically impressive, the 8030C features the rounded edges and colour-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™). Every element of the design is crafted to perfect your listening experience. Precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction is courtesy of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™). Broad low-frequencies and high SPLs are delivered with a flow-optimised internal curved reflex tube and a maximised internal volume. And when you’re finished, Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) circuitry detects when your system is no longer in use, placing it into an environmentally friendly, power-saving standby mode.

From professional studios to outside broadcast vehicles, the 8030C has been crafted to combine extraordinary power with absolute precision.
