Classic Studio Monitors & Subwoofers

Precision tools for professional use, Genelec’s Classic Series monitors and subwoofers embody decades of engineering expertise, meaning you’ll hear the music, not the monitor.

A reference point for audio professionals the world over, the active monitors and subwoofers of the Genelec Classic Series remain the chosen solution of many of the world’s most demanding studios.

To understand why, you need only listen. Every Classic Series monitor is engineered to deliver an uncompromisingly flat frequency response, from the elimination of diffractions and control of the sound directivity courtesy of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™), to the optimised flow of the reflex tube design. Meanwhile, at the low end, Genelec’s Classic subwoofers are constructed around the Laminar Spiral Enclosure (LSE™) principle, resulting in articulate and dynamic low frequency reproduction.

Within the Classic range are Genelec’s world-renowned, two-way, 8000 Series monitors, each housed in a Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™). This advanced die-cast aluminium design is built for performance – its sturdy, vibration-free structure ensures diffraction-free sound reproduction even at highest output levels. Similarly, the two way models of the M Series benefit from Genelec’s Natural Composite Enclosure (NCE™), using an injection-mouldable wood material for outstanding acoustic damping and rigidity, all while maintaining the highest standards of environmental awareness.

Other features include dedicated amplifiers for each driver, manual room response control to help compensate for acoustic influences, and on-board overload protection. The result of decades of refinement, the Genelec Classic Series models are the tools to which audio experts turn for truly reliable monitoring.
