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 7070Asubwoofer.
