Available in a pair, the Genelec 8030A Studio Monitor is a small, bi-amplified, 2-way speaker with twin 40 Watt amplifiers and shielded 5″ and .75″ Low and High frequency drivers, housed in a sturdy die-cast aluminium enclosure, designed for use in any professional audio production environment where space considerations are paramount.
The two unique features of the 8030A are the MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) cabinet design, and the Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) speaker mount. The MDE design, with its rounded, curved cabinet edges, improves spatial imaging and playback consistency. The Iso-Pod is a positioning mount that raises and isolates the speaker from the rumble and resonances often caused by surface placement.
The two 8030A rear panel connectors are 3-pin XLRs, providing both an input, and an output, for daisy-chain 5.1 surround expansion needs, or use with a subwoofer. A modest complement of tone control DIP switches allows for adjustment to the room’s acoustic environment, and a bass port improves low end reproduction.
The 8030A is a worthy and progressive solution for traditional stereo recording, or surround mixing, in commercial and project studio, AV post, or mobile truck environments.
