Genelec 8040BPM Studio Monitor (Single)

Use the 8040A for nearfield monitoring, in project/home studios, workstations, broadcast and TV control rooms and mobile production vehicles.

Genelec 8040A Bi-Amplified Active Monitor (Single) Details

The bi-amplified Genelec 8040A which boasts performance comparable to much larger systems, but in a compact package, is ideal for use in many situations where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited. Use the 8040A for nearfield monitoring, in project/home studios, workstations, broadcast and TV control rooms and mobile production vehicles.

Minimum Diffraction Enclosure for superb imaging

The 8040A features Genelec's MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) enclosure with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8040A to achieve a very 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 8040A also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). The revolutionary DCW has been further enhanced to provide extremely accurate control of the 8040A's directivity. Genelec designed this specially-shaped and very smooth surface and integrated it with the enclosure. Its area has been maximized to achieve an astoundingly flat on and off-axis frequency response. As a result, the 8040A has an astoundingly wide, flat frequency response both on and off axis. This also gives the 8040A superb imaging qualities and less listening fatigue.

High performance reflex port design

To increase the 8040A woofer's low frequency extension and SPL capacity, Genelec designed an ingenious flow optimized reflex port. The long, curved tube maximizes airflow so the 8040A 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 8040A's acoustic excellence.

High audio output with low distortion

Genelec's low distortion drivers - 6.5" bass speakers and 3/4" metal dome tweeters - are driven by the 8040A's dedicated 90-watt bass and treble amplifiers 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 8040A include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further M10 thread for mounting on the cabinet base. In addition, every Genelec 8040A monitor comes with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) as standard. The Iso-Pod is a clever mounting stand, which allows the 8040A to perform 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.

What We Think - Genelec 8040A Review

The consistency between each of the 8000 series speakers is amazing, you can move from the 8020 all the way to the 8050 and the imaging and detail of the mids / highs is strikingly similar. What you gain by moving up a series is another roughly 10hZ of low end detail and volume. Very detailed sound, they even look cool! All 8000 series monitors ship with the ??Isopod? which is a cool way to decouple and position them. Surround systems are available at a discount package price as well.

Superb Clarity and Stereo Imaging!! September 24, 2006
Reviewer: Justin Justice from San Francisco, California  
These monitors are perfect for a situation in which you need a great nearfield for accurate monitoring.  They are worth every penny IMHO.
