Genelec 8020B

Genelec has introduced the 8020B Bi-Amplified Active Monitoring System. The system measures 9.53”x 5.94"x 5.59" and has been designed for monitoring work in difficult listening environments. The 8020B features a mains power switch located on the enclosure’s rear panel. The rotary front panel control is used for sound level adjustment only. The audio signal can still be muted (the front LED stays on) in turning the front panel volume knob fully counterclockwise, but actual mains power is only switched off using the rear panel on/off power switch, which turns the front LED on/off. This also enables turning the power off without changing the set level. Along with this change, the second rear-mounted XLR connector has been removed. This new control configuration offers new options for environmentally conscious users and those looking to cut down on energy consumption. The 8020B’s die-cast aluminum Minimum Diffraction Enclosure features relatively large internal volumes. The 8020B’s Directivity Control Waveguide technology provides smooth on- and off-axis response. The long, curved reflex port ends in a wide flare for excellent bass articulation.The 8020B features a 4in. bass driver along with a 0.75in. tweeter. The frequency response is 66Hz to 20kHz (± 2.5dB). The system is capable of delivering sound pressure levels of up to 105dB maximum. Bass and treble are each powered by 20W amplifiers. Price: $595
