Genelec 8050BPM Studio Monitor

Genelec 8050BPM Studio Monitor is the Modern-Classic Genelec monitor; the very monitor which represents the pinnacle of 2-way 8-inch studio monitoring. Producing high SPL over a very wide frequency response, the 8050B studio monitor is a powerful and very accurate reference monitoring system.

Very high SPL output, high dynamic range, low colouration and wide frequency response characterise Genelec 8050B active monitor. The 8050B all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) contains drivers, power amplifiers, active crossover and protection circuitry. The surface optimized advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) provides outstanding frequency balance, stable and neutral sound imaging in all environments. 8050B features Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry which switches the monitor to standby when no audio input is detected (ErP 2013 Directive).

It is the monitoring tool for large recording studios, mastering suites, post-production houses, radio and TV broadcasting.

What We Think

The Genelec 8050 Classic Series Studio Monitor is the modern classic 2-Way 8-inch studio monitor. Having inspired numerous copies from it's predecessor, the 1031A, Genelec sought to produce a better and more perfect monitor built to utilize the best construction techniques available as well as put several new cutting edge developments from Genelec to work. The most impressive thing about Genelecs - aside from their stunning sound quality - is the consistency of sound between each model offered. So, if your commercial studio has a pair of Genelec monitors in place, they're instantly going to be comfortable for visiting engineers. In fact, the 1031A became a de facto studio standard in the late 1990s through early 2000s, for this very reason. And the 8050 and its fancy brother - the 8250, and now the 8350 SAM Monitor - bear the standard moving on further into the 21st century.

Once you do your first mix with the Genelec 8050s, you'll understand why some of the best ears in audio insist upon them for every project.

    Opals to Genes

    Posted by Jim Young on Sep 9th 2016

    Back in November of 2015 I ordered two Event Opal monitors. Unfortunately, the Opals were not in stock and after several attempts to get them delivered to FrontEnd I was informed that I may never receive them. Alan Moon worked closely with me to get me quality replacements; the Genelec 8050Bs. These are more expensive than the Opals, but given the long delay and hassle with getting the Opals, Alan convinced me to try the Genelecs. Although it took a long time to finally get some monitors, I am very satisfied with them and the customer service provided by Alan. Cheers, Jim Young
