Neutral and uncoloured

The G Five combines generous listening levels and extended frequency response with the neutral, uncoloured performance that has made us a benchmark in the world of professional recording. This means that you’ll experience the same balanced, dynamic sound whatever volume you choose to run your G Fives at, whether you’re enjoying music, movies, TV or gaming.

Getting active

The active design of the G Five removes the need for bulky external power amplifiers, since the amplifier is contained within the speaker cabinet itself. Not only does this give you high quality internal amplifiers that are totally optimised for the drivers they are feeding, but it also means that you can simply hook up your sound source directly to the G Five for clean, uncompromised performance. And with our simple room compensation switches, the G Five will adapt to your acoustic environment - delivering pure and truthful sound wherever you choose to listen.

FAQ

Mounting your monitors with our accessories

Genelec offers you a wide variety of functional and smart mounting accessories for different installations. With our mounting equipment it is possible to mount loudspeakers, whether you are seeking monitor stands, wall mounts or ceiling mounts. Our accessories range includes floor and table stands, ceiling and wall mounts, adapters, slatwall mounts, but also flush-mounting and rack-mounting kits. For a complete overview of our accessories offering, please visit our accessories page.

Our loudspeaker models are suitable for listening any type of music

All Genelec models are designed to have neutral sound character so they can be used for monitoring and listening to any type of music. If you monitor/listen to music with high bass output SPL's containing low frequencies then physically small systems may be applicable for near field listening only, close to the monitor, and may not be able to output the lowest frequencies due to a higher system cut-off frequency. In this case we recommend a larger system for increased maximum SPL and a deeper LF cut-off frequency, or adding a subwoofer.

Genelec monitors are calibrated flat in anechoic free field conditions. When the monitor is placed in a room close to walls or other boundaries, the low frequency output of the monitor increases. To achieve a flat low frequency response an adjustment of typically -4 dB on the bass tilt control is used. Genelec also provides a bass roll-off control to compensate for any remaining excessive LF energy around the low cut-off frequency. Genelec GLM AutoCal can implement a more precise compensation after measuring the acoustic effects produced by the monitor’s installation location.

Differences in room reverberation time and listening distance can lead to changes being required in the treble region so treble tilt is fitted to most of the models in the Genelec range.

In three-way monitors and large main systems there are additional driver controls for the bass level, mid-level and treble level which enable very fine adjustment of the frequency response so that the monitors can be placed in many different listening environments, whilst still achieving a consistent and neutral sound reproduction.

The best way to set the room response controls of a Genelec monitor is by taking an acoustical measurement at the listening location, using a measurement system for those products that offer local controls (DIP switches) on the monitor or subwoofer, or by using GLM AutoCal for the SAM (Smart Active Monitoring) products.

Setting Up Your Speakers

How To Select The Correct Monitors

A monitor, by definition, observes, checks, controls, warns or keeps a continuous record of something. An audio monitor, studio monitor or monitoring speaker is more than just a good-sounding loudspeaker. It is a device used in the process of recording, mixing or broadcasting audio in any environment where accurate listening is needed. A monitor is a professional tool.

How To Place Your Monitors

To create the ideal listening experience, several aspects need to be taken into account when placing the monitors within the listening space. First, you need to identify the listening area within the space and consider where the listener will be placed in relation to the space as well as the studio monitors. These will be influenced by the wall reflections and radiation space around the monitors. With careful planning, your monitor placement will help you enjoy the best possible listening experience!

Monitor Calibration & Improving Acoustics

The acoustic environment of the listening space has a major influence on the sound quality. Walls, ceiling, and floor as well as large objects like mixing consoles, tables, equipment racks, and furniture cause reflections.
