The Genelec 8040B features two powered amplifiers for optimised performance value. The bi-amplified design ensures optimal audio performance and fidelity by assigning each of the two frequency bands with their own individual amplifier. This helps to optimise the audio fidelity and performance, ensuring you hear every nuance of the audio as it was intended. The amplifiers are designed to power both the woofer and tweeter individually.
The exceptional audio quality and wide frequency range ensures you hear every nuance of the original audio as it was intended. This is paramount when it comes to mixing and mastering as you are able to hear every subtlety that other studio monitors may miss. The bi-amplified design is designed to optimise each driver with their individual power amplifiers on the tweeter and woofer. This ensures maximum audio fidelity and performance value. The included Iso-Pod base helps to decouple the speaker form its mounting surface, minimising colourations caused by vibrations and reflections. Additionally, on the rear of the monitor is a 'Tone Control' function which allows you to optimise the speaker's sound to match the space and environment you are using the speaker in, optimising audio quality and performance.
ICC (Intelligent Signal Sensing) Technology was developed by Genelec in early 2013, designed to track the signal input of the loudspeaker and detect if it is in use. If the ISS circuitry finds that the speaker is not in use for a certain period of time it will automatically switch to a low-power sleep state, consuming less than 0.5 watts. This is highly useful when it comes to studios and home studios as it minimises power usage while optimising performance value. The loudspeaker will immediately turn itself back on again once it detects an input signal, saving you power and money in the long run. If you wish to disable this feature you can simply turn on the 'ISS Disable' switch located on the rear panel of the monitor.
The most versatile feature of the 8040B is the wide range of mounting options, allowing you to place the monitor virtually anywhere. The 3/8’’ threaded hole on the base allows you attach to a range of speaker stands, plus the threaded holes are ideal for mounting to omnimount brackets. This lets you place the monitors in the optimal positioning ensuring maximum stability and audio performance. The included Iso-Pod table can also be attached to the base or side of the monitor for vertical and horizontal positioning.
This deluxe pair of stands have been designed to carry even the largest and heaviest of monitors. Featuring a three arm design made from solid metal, the weight is evenly distributed throughout the stand, preventing any stress points from heavy speakers.
These speaker stands feature a rubber plate on the top, which prevents the monitor from moving around on the top of the stand. As well as this, it offers protection from scratches and dents to the bottom of the monitor.
