Genelec has introduced the 4000 Series, a range of two-way active loudspeakers which deliver the same high-level performance as the company’s studio monitors, but with additional features specifically designed for the system integration market.
The 4000 Series connectivity and installation features ensure a smooth, trouble-free installation for contractors and system integrators incorporating audio into their installations.
The 4000 Series is Genelec’s first foray into the commercial and professional installation market sector, and the company is working towards expanding its offering to the professional A/V market.
Both of the models in the new 4000 Series (4020 and 4030) incorporate Genelec’s proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) mid/high driver technology.
The Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) is formed by blending the new MDC driver surface with the enclosure’s front shape to provide extremely accurate control of the loudspeaker’s directivity. This acoustically optimized smooth DCW provides very flat on-axis and off-axis frequency response.
The 4020 and 4030 are fitted with “Phoenix” screw terminals. The audio performance and convenient installation are further enhanced by a matched integrated amplifier.
The in-built protection circuitry also guarantees the reliability of the loudspeaker system in all operating conditions, as drivers are electronically protected from signal peaks and misuse of the system.
The precise “Room Response” controls, including calibrated bass tilt, treble tilt and bass roll-off, optimize the loudspeaker’s response to different acoustical environments, whatever the interior design.
Mounting is also simple: the integrated support points for Omnimount 20.5 series hardware on the enclosure back panel and the 3/8-inch UNC threaded hole at the base of the enclosure, combined with the wide variety of mounting options and accessories available from Genelec, meet a wide range of installation scenarios.
