Home Audio / Residential productsAll Genelec loudspeakers are active: they include all amplification, protection circuitry and an electronic crossover. The result is a loudspeaker that achieves far higher acoustic output, lower distortion and greater dynamics than a comparable passive speaker. This allows you to create a system that will achieve real home theater level output and performance yet that can be easily hidden within a wall unit or behind a screen.
Since no two rooms are alike, why should one assume that a loudspeaker will perform at its best in a wide variety of settings? All models incorporate "Room Response Controls" to fine tune the loudspeakers' performance within a room thereby giving you the ability to ensure a great sound in a wide variety of environments.
The unique Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) Technology used provides excellent sound imaging and frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments.
The two-way models are HT206B, HT208B and HT210B. The HT206B is diminutive in size, yet can fill some very good size rooms. At the other extreme, the HT210B can energize large dedicated home theaters whilst suiting the demanding visual requirements of a designer or architect.
All models utilize technologies that have made Genelec famous, and they are built under the same scrutiny and exacting standards as our professional models.
Genelec Active 3-Way Loudspeaker Systems powerful active loudspeakers with performance equal to much larger systems. All systems include speaker drivers, loudspeaker enclosure, multiple power amplifiers, overload protection circuitry and active, low signal level crossovers.
The Genelec HT312B is designed for use in moderate-sized environments and is ideal for home theatre installations where extended bandwidth and high power are required. The HT312B performs well both as free-standing loudspeaker or flush mounted into a correctly designed front wall.
The Genelec HT315B and matching center channel model HT320BC are designed for medium-sized listening environments where broad bandwidth, high sound pressure levels and extended low frequency response are essential.
All electronics, amplifiers, crossover filters and power supply of the HT312B are integrated into a 19" 3U RAM4 rack module. The 19" 3U RAM5 module is dedicated to the HT315B and HT320BC models. These amplifiers are designed to operate at very low THD and IM distortion values and incorporate special circuitry for driver overload protection and amplifier thermal protection.
Each amplifier is factory calibrated with the individual loudspeaker they are shipped with in order to eliminate the effects of component tolerances and ensuring consistent quality and long term reliability.
