  • * SPECIAL OFFER * Genelec 8020A Active Studio Monitors, Black (Pair) (Ex-Display)

    The Genelec 8020A is a very compact bi- amplified active monitor system with performance comparable to much larger systems.

    Main Features

    • Compact active monitors
    • Frequency range: 65 Hz to 21 kHz
    • Accurate sound with excellent stereo imaging


    The 8020A excels in applications where space is at a premium, taking full advantage of the unconventional design and advanced technologies of Genelec's 8000 Series loudspeaker range. The all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDETM) and advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCWTM) technologies are carefully matched with complementing advanced amplifier and electronics circuitry and the latest drivers. Bass response reaches down to 65 Hz (-3 dB) with low distortion due to a uniquely new rear reflex port design. The system's excellent directivity characteristics and accurate imaging together with its com- pact size and flexible mounting options make the 8020A the perfect monitoring tool for a wide range of applications.

    Integrated construction
    The 8020A is very easy to set up and use, the only connections required are the mains
    supply and the line level input. The input is made via a balanced female XLR. A balanced male XLR output connector can be used for connecting a 7050B subwoofer or daisy chaining up to six 8020A's together. The volume control is located on the front panel. This allows easy level matching with other audio equipment. The integrated design allows the amplifiers and the drivers to be calibrated as a single unit, eliminating the effects of component tolerances and ensuring consistent quality.

    Crossover filters
    The amplifier unit contains an active cross- over, a feature more commonly used in large and expensive control room monitors. This is the ideal method for dividing the input signal between the driver units. The active crossover allows the overall response of the system to be optimised to an extent impossible with a passive system. To maintain uniform frequency balance in differing acoustic environments, special calibrated controls are included in the active crossover network. These controls include 'treble tilt', 'bass tilt' and 'bass roll-off' switches.

    Amplifiers
    The bass and treble amplifiers produce 20 W of output power each, with very low THD and IM distortion values. The amplifiers are designed to ensure the highest subjective sound quality currently possible. The amplifier unit also contains a protection circuit that monitors the output levels and prevents any damage to the drivers. This makes the system immune to overloads and spurious signals.

    Drivers
    A 19 mm (3/4 inch) metal dome tweeter is loaded by an advanced DCWTM waveguide. The DCWTM is integrated into the one piece front baffle. The 105 mm (4 inch) bass cone driver is mounted in a newly designed bass reflex enclosure. The long, flow optimised reflex tube has a large cross sectional area and terminates with a wide flare at the back of the enclosure. Protective grilles are positioned in front of both drivers. Magnetic shielding is standard on the 8020A. Shielding is vital for applications such as video post production, where stray magnetic fields must be minimised.

    MDETM and DCWTM Technologies
    The Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDETM) Technology increases the performance of the Genelec 8000 Series loudspeakers by minimising edge diffraction and improving frequency and power response. The edges of the enclosure are rounded and blend seamlessly into the enlarged Directivity Control Waveguide™. Surface discontinuities that cause diffraction are minimised. The curved walls of the die-cast aluminium enclosure are thin but rigid, allowing maximum internal volume while also providing improved EMC shielding and heat dissipation for the amplifiers. Locating the reflex port to the back of the enclosure allows a generously dimensioned reflex port for minimal port noise and excellent bass articulation while freeing the front baffle for an enlarged and optimised DCWTM.

    The advanced DCWTM is designed to match the performance of the drivers in terms of both frequency response and directivity. This results in a smoother overall frequency response on and off axis. In addition, the improved directivity control causes more direct sound and less reflected sound to be received at the listening position, providing improved imaging and reducing the effects of differing control room acoustics. The DCWTM improves the drive unit sensitivity by +2 to +6 dB (depending on the particular application), thus also increasing the available system maximum sound pressure level.
