The Genelec 1029A was in production between 1996 and 2005. It was replaced by the 8030A.
The extremely compact 1029A is a powerful bi-amplified nearfield monitor system ideal for project and home studios, digital workstations, and surround sound monitoring. The monitor has a very rugged cast aluminium construction and magnetic stray field shielding as default for every single unit. Vented speaker enclosure contains an amplification unit, including an active electronic crossover, overload protection circuitry and two power amplifiers, one for each driver.
Genelec's unique Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) is used to provide excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance, even in difficult acoustic environments. Versatile room response controls allow matching of the system to its surroundings. If very large sound level and low cutoff frequency are required it can be complemented with the 7050A subwoofer.
The 1029A is very easy to set up and use, the only connections required are the mains supply and the line level input. The input is made via balanced XLR female or 1/4" jack socket connector which can also be used in parallel.
The 1029A/1091A combination is a TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) 1997 award winner for Studio Monitor Technology, and PAR (Pro Audio Review) Excellence award winner.
