Genelec Nearfield Monitors

The Genelec 8000 Series Two-way Active Monitors and 8200 Series Two-way DSP Monitors offer a wide choice of solutions for demanding nearfield listening applications. From the diminutive 6010B to the state-of-the-art 8250A they share the same design:

Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDE™) with rounded edges that curve gently and seamlessly into the shapes of the Advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) and the large rear-opening of the reflex tube. This long, curved reflex tube is flow optimized to increase the woofer's low frequency extension and SPL capacity. New low distortion drivers combined with carefully designed crossover filters result in improved resolution and less listening fatigue over the entire audio spectrum. The rubber based Iso-Pod™ (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler™) provides adjustable enclosure tilt to point the acoustical axis precisely towards the listener for best sound reproduction. The Iso-Pod™ prevents also coloration caused by conduction of unwanted vibration to the mounting surface.

The analogue 6100 and 8000 Series models contain integrated amplifiers and crossover circuits, including room response controls for adjusting the monitors for optimal response in different situations. Overload protection circuits protect the drivers and amplifiers, providing long term reliability.

The 8200 Series DSP monitors are equipped with powerful digital signal processing for maximum accuracy and adaptability. Controlled and adjusted by Genelec's proprietary Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software including the Auto Cal calibration function, these monitors are the ultimate nearfield monitoring tools.
