8040B Studio Monitor

Boasting astonishing performance, the 8040B studio monitor is ideal for use in all types of audio and video production environments.

The Genelec 8040B studio monitor produces high SPL, low colouration and broad bandwidth in a modest enclosure. It contains drivers, matched power amplifiers, active crossover and protection circuitry. The 8040 Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™) and advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) technologies provide superior frequency balance and neutral sound imaging in all production environments. 8040B features Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) circuitry which switches the monitor to standby when no audio input is detected (ErP 2013 Directive).

Its superior performance makes it ideal for many applications, such as music studios, post-production facilities, mobile vans, radio and TV broadcasting.
