Genelec 8020A and 7050B - A new category of precision monitoring
Published on Tuesday, 20 December 2005 14:34
Introducing the 8020A, the newest (and smallest) model in the 8000 MDE™ series, Genelec now launches a professional playback monitor design in a totally new size category.
All forms of distortion have been minimized in this design that features the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™) technology. The imaging accuracy and low frequency extension achieved with such an extremely compact enclosure are truly astounding. The advanced Directivity Control WaveguideTM provides an amazingly fl at on and off-axis response. The long and curved refl ex port featuring wide fl are termination enables excellent bass articulation.
The Genelec 8020A brings to life the results of persistent research and development of genuine new technologies. Once combined with the new Genelec 7050B LSE™ subwoofer, you have in your hand a professional wide bandwidth surround sound monitoring system.
7050B in Stereo and Surround Sound Environments
Full Bandwidth Stereo and Surround Sound Monitoring
The trend in small room playback monitoring is for levels to be less than “ear splitting”. Even so, the 8020A is truly surprising even without a subwoofer. However, if your productions have multi-channel requirements, large - full bandwidth audio is required, especially in cases where the LFE channel is utilized. The new Genelec 7050B LSE™ Subwoofer is the perfect match for the 8020A for both stereo and surround sound applications. The 7050B extends the LF response down to 25 Hz with amazing bass articulation. This is possible in such a compact enclosure thanks to the patended LSE™ (Laminar Spiral EnclosureTM ) technology. With 5 main input channels and an LFE channel with 85/120 Hz reproduction bandwidth selection, the 8020A/7050B system fulfi lls the needs of 5.1 productions. You can also use the 7050B to complement a pair of Genelec 8030A monitors.

You will also get answers to many frequently asked questions, and if you have a new one, we will be glad to help!
Compact in Broadcast
More and more broadcast productions are made in very variable environments, which have strict limitations both in terms of space and budget. Whether the program is transmitted from an OB-truck or from the main studios, the highest audio monitoring is necessary. For these needs the new Genelec 8020A Two-way Active Monitor offers an optimal solution. The 8020A is a true professional monitor, with no compromises in reliability and durability. It is the working partner you can trust in all demanding environments.
Playback Monitoring in Recording and Post-production
More and more productions are made in small environments which cannot house big speakers. Often pre-production work and track laying is not done in the big studio. The 8020A is amazingly revealing. The natural, uncoloured and extremely low distortion reproduction characteristics of the highly praised Genelec 8000 Series are there in a truly compact size, with an LF extension you would never expect. By adding the new 7050B subwoofer you create a full bandwidth surround system.
Maximum Ease with Minimum Installation Space
Listening spaces come in all forms and sizes. When the sound needs to be distributed, one thing remains the same: the demand for ease of installation and minimum space occupied by the installation. The 8020A is your perfect partner. The enclosure has integrated support points and readily available versatile mounting options for all possible installations. The optional white colour is often preferred in installations where sound sources have to match light coloured surfaces.
Intensive and Intimate Monitoring for the Workstation
Powerful modern audio/video workstations have brought the need for precision audio monitoring right next to the desktop or laptop. The quality of the soundscape is often as impressive as the latest visual magic on high quality screens. Discover the audio power and quality of your workstation with the 8020A and reach professional audio production quality!
