Genelec 8030.LSE PowerPak
The Genelec 8030B
.LSE Power Pak is comprised of 5 8030B
nearfield monitors matched with the 7060B
subwoofer. The 8030B
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 aluminum enclosure, designed for use in any professional audio production environment where space considerations are paramount.
The two unique features of the 8030B
are the MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) cabinet design, and the Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) speaker mount. The MDE design, with it's 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 8030B
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.
subwoofer features a 10" driver, powered by a robust 120 Watt amplifier, housed in Genelec's proprietary LSE(Laminar Spiral Enclosure) bass reflex cabinet. This design combines minimized enclosure noise with tight, consistent signal dispersion, a characteristic of laminar. The rear panel provides a bass management unit featuring 6 separate XLR I/Os and a pair of summed signal outputs. The amplifier unit, with active crossover filters and driver overload protection, is adjacent to an ample set of tone, phase and filter controls.
.LSE Power Pak is a worthy and progressive solution as a 5.1 Surround monitoring system for studio and A/V post or multi-media applications.
