The Genelec 8040B boasts a performance you might expect from a much larger system but is smart and compact. The bi-amplified monitor is ideal for any situation where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited.
Whether you need a speaker for nearfield monitoring a project or home studio workstations broadcast or TV control rooms or a mobile production vehicle the Genelec 8040B is a great choice. The 8040B can be used with the 7070A subwoofer in stereo or up to 6.1-channel surround systems or with the 7060B subwoofer in stereo systems. Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) Genelecs ISS feature can reduce power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby when no audio signal has been detected for a while. When the monitor receives a signal again it will turn back on. ISS is fully compliant with all the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices. Wide Flat Frequency Response The Genelec 8040B loudspeaker has a wide and flat frequency response both on and off axis. The ingenious flow optimised reflex port achieves clear deep bass articulation with no compression or port noises. This combined with the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) and the smooth round edges and gentle curves of the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) produces a clear natural response. Isolation Positioner/Decoupler (Iso-Pod) Each of the Genelec 8040Bs comes with an Iso-Pod which eliminates colouration of the sound by decoupling the monitor from its mounting surface. It also allows the speaker to be angled so that its acoustic axis points directly at the listener. Advanced Speaker Features Other impressive features of the Genelec 8040B include superb imaging qualities and less listening fatigue. The crossover filters have been carefully designed with steep roll-off feed dedicated amplifiers for each of the low distortion drivers. Magnetic shielding overload protection circuitry and versatile response controls as standard complete the feature set. Included Accessories For ideal mounting in different environments the 8040B includes integrated rear support points for floor and wall stands plus an M10 threaded mounting hole on the base.
