World-class Genelec Monitors!The completely small 8030A is a rocking bi-amplified nearfield monitor rig ideal for project and home studios, workstations, installations, and surround sound monitoring.
Genelec 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitor at a Glance:
- High audio output with low distortion
- Special MDE enclosure minimizes diffraction for focused near-field use
- One-of-a-kind Iso-Pod mounting system
- Cutting-edge waveguide and bass reflex port design for optimum sound distribution
Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ for superb imaging
The 8030A features Genelec's MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) enclosure with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8030A to achieve a completely smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.
Genelec's Directivity Control Waveguide™ enhances directivity
Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8030A also features the cutting-edge Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). The revolutionary DCW has been further enhanced to provide extremely accurate control of the 8030A's directivity. Genelec designed this specially-shaped and completely smooth surface and integrated it with the enclosure. Its area has been maximized to achieve an astoundingly flat on and off-axis frequency response. The 8030A has a wide and consistent listening window, with minimal harmful early room reflections and other colorations associated with conventional designs.
High performance reflex port design
To increase the 8030A woofer's low frequency extension and SPL capacity, Genelec designed an ingenious flow optimized reflex port. The long, curved tube maximizes airflow so the 8030A can reproduce deep bass without compression. The tube terminates with a wide flare, minimizing port noises and providing excellent bass articulation. An optimized die-cast aluminium structure with extremely durable semi-matt finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles add to the 8030A's acoustic excellence.
High audio output with low distortion
Genelec's low distortion drivers - 5" bass speakers and 3/4" metal dome tweeters - are powered by the 8030A's dedicated 40-watt bass and treble amps after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls are standard.
Versatile mounting options plus special Iso-Pod™ stand
The versatile mounting features on the 8030A include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further 3/8" thread for mounting on the cabinet base. In addition, every Genelec 8030A monitor comes with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) as standard. The Iso-Pod™ is a clever mounting stand, which allows the 8030A to hit the stage in either the vertical or horizontal position. The IsoPod also enables the acoustic axis of the monitor to be aimed at the listener, while acoustically and mechanically decoupling the monitor from the surface it is resting on.
