5040B Active Subwoofer

The Genelec 5040B is an extremely compact active subwoofer designed to complement up to five 6010B’s with accurate and dynamic bass response reaching down to 35 Hz. Matched perfectly with the 6010B’s, the 5040B conveniently features a remote volume control allowing adjustment of the entire sound system as well as versatile acoustic controls for perfect room integration.

Our Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) feature, reduces power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby, when no audio signal has been detected for some time. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on.

ISS is fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices.
