8050B Studio Monitor

Get serious in your studio with a headline performance from one of the world’s most desired active monitors, the Genelec 8050B.

Found in studios where only the best is good enough, the 8050B represents a class-leading balance of extraordinary SPL output, an expansive dynamic range and an intensely detailed, transparent performance. A truly professional tool, the 8050B is most at home in large facilities, world-renowned mastering suites and broadcasting hubs of the world. Nevertheless, it still exhibits the striking good looks, rounded edges and colour-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™).

Precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction is guaranteed by the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™), while broad low-frequencies and high SPLs are delivered with a flow-optimised internal curved reflex tube and a maximised internal volume. Finally, at the end of the session the 8050B saves your studio money by automatically entering an environmentally friendly, power-saving standby mode, courtesy of Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) circuitry.
