8030B Studio Monitor

Combine power with precision to meet the most demanding requirements, all with Genelec’s renowned accuracy and reliability.

When your project requires a powerful performance with no sacrifice in quality, the Genelec 8030B active studio monitor is designed to exceed your expectations.

As strikingly stylish as it is sonically impressive, the 8030B features the rounded edges and colour-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™). Every element of the design is crafted to perfect your listening experience. Precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction is courtesy of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™). Broad low-frequencies and high SPLs are delivered with a flow-optimised internal curved reflex tube and a maximised internal volume. And when you’re finished, Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) circuitry detects when your system is no longer in use, placing it into an environmentally friendly, power-saving standby mode.

From professional studios to outside broadcast vehicles, the 8030B has been crafted to combine extraordinary power with absolute precision.
