In addition to the new rounded enclosure design and driver selection, the 8040A and 8050A models also feature new crossover filters and room response controls. A Desk-top (console) Bass control has been added along with the customary Genelec Bass Tilt, Bass Roll-off, and Treble Tiltcontrols.The 8000 series takes a new approach to enclosure design, driver technology, and active electronics. All three models utilise all aluminium, minimum difraction enclosure (MDE™) design, with large internal volumes, softly curved edges, and outstanding mechanical strength. Every 8000 monitor system incorporates the unique Genelec Iso-Pod™, Isolation - Positioner Decoupler. The Iso-Pod™ is a clever mounting stand, which allows the system to perform in either the vertical or horizontal position. It also means the acoustic axis of the monitor can be aimed at the listener, while remaining acoustically mechanically decoupled from the surface it is resting on. All 8000 systems are magnetically shielded for use in environments where video monitors are in close proximity. A variety of fixing holes for major standards are also standard.
