Experience the true sound of your mix with the astonishing performance and versatility of the Genelec 8040B.

The Genelec 8040B is a compact bi-amplified active monitor system with performance comparable to much larger systems. The 8040B takes full advantage of the unconventional design and advanced technologies of Genelec's 8000 Series loudspeaker range.

The all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) and advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) technologies are carefully matched with advanced amplifier and electronic circuitry and the latest drivers. Bass response has been widened down to 45 Hz (-3 dB) while distortion is substantially lower due to a uniquely new rear reflex port design.

The system's excellent directivity characteristics and accurate imaging together with its compact size and flexible mounting options make the8040B the perfect monitoring tool for a wide range of applications. The 8040B has been specially designed to have a sufficient LF extension for most situations.

However if greater SPL's and a lower cutoff frequency are required, it can be complemented with a Genelec 7060B or 7070A subwoofer.

Pristine performance
The choice of recording professionals the world over, the 8040B’s pristine performance extends to an SPL of 105 dB and reaches right down to 41 Hz. This is a nearfield monitor that can provide truthfulness and energy in equal measures.

Power and accuracy
The 8040B’s recycled aluminium cabinet design combines transparent, uncoloured audio quality with a unique aesthetic beauty. You’ll work with speed and accuracy, producing mixes that translate beautifully. And when you’ve finished, our Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry will automatically switch the 8040B into a green, power-saving standby mode.
