The Genelec 8030B is fitted with their Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) feature which reduces power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby when no audio signal has been detected for some time. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on. ISS is fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices
Every Genelec 8030B monitor comes with an Iso-Pod™(Isolation Positioner/Decoupler™) as standard. The Iso-Pod™ is a clever mounting stand, which allows the system to perform in either the vertical or horizontal position. It 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.
If very large sound levels and a low cutoff frequency are required it can be complemented in stereo applications with the 7050B subwoofer and in surround applications with the 7060B subwoofer.
The MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) enclosure has rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimised cabinet edge diffraction.
Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8030B also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), a revolutionary flow-optimised reflex port design, optimised die-cast aluminium structure with extremely durable semi-matt finish and acoustically optimised metal grilles.
Low distortion drivers are driven by dedicated amplifiers after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls are standard. The versatile mounting features include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further 3/8 inch thread for mounting on the cabinet base.
