The Genelec 1030A was in production between 1994 and 2005. It was replaced by the 8040A model.
The Genelec 1030A is a very compact bi-amplified active monitor system, which has performance comparable to much larger systems. The vented speaker enclosure has an amplifier unit set into the back. This unit contains an active electronic crossover, overload protection circuitry and two power amplifiers: one for each driver. The system’s excellent dispersion and precise imaging together with its compact size make it ideal for near field monitoring, broadcast and TV control rooms, mobile vans, home studios and travelling engineers.
Genelec’s unique Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW ™) technology is used to provide excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance, even in difficult acoustic environments and the versatile crossover controls allow further matching of the system to its surroundings.
Because the amplifiers are built into the speaker enclosure, the only connections required are the mains supply and the line level input signal, making the 1030A very easy to set up and use.
The 1030A is a TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) 1995 award winner for Studio Monitor Technology.
