THE NAMM SHOW, Anaheim, CA, January 21, 2016 — Genelec (Booth 5968, Hall B), the world’s pioneer in active monitoring, is exhibiting its M030 Bi-Amplified Active Monitors. The M030 is a member of Genelec’s M Series, which is part of Genelec’s larger ongoing sustainable initiatives. These energy-efficient offerings take a novel approach to monitor design without sacrificing the accuracy and reliability for which Genelec has been known for decades, while also offering something new and innovative for project studio customers.
The M030 utilizes a five-inch woofer and 3/4-inch metal dome tweeter, powered by a 50-Watt and 30-Watt amplifier, respectively. The free-field frequency response is 58Hz to 20kHz (+/-3dB), while low distortion peak SPL is 103dB at one meter. The M030 measures 10.75" H (273mm) x 7.5" W (190mm) x 7.5" D (190mm) and weighs 8.8 lbs (4.6kg).
The M030 employs a Natural Composite Enclosure™ (NCE™) manufactured for Genelec in Finland from wood fiber and recyclable material. The M030 uses Genelec’s enclosure design heritage, featuring rounded edges and gently curved front and sides to provide minimized cabinet edge diffraction and superb imaging. It also utilizes a Laminar Integrated Port™ (LIP™) for accurate low frequency response and minimizing the enclosure vibration and employs an integrated advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), yielding large internal volumes with outstanding mechanical strength.
The M030 features class D amplifiers developed in-house by Genelec’s R&D/engineering team. The class D amplifiers are highly efficient, low distortion amplifiers that operate cooler and lighter than class A/B amps. They also feature Intelligent Signal Sensing™ (ISS™) power management with auto power-off/auto power-on and with standby power consumption of less than 0.5W. Automatic voltage selection allows the monitors to operate throughout the world. Additionally, the M030 has high-performance drivers and intuitive room response controls for system calibration as well as XLR/TRS and unbalanced RCA inputs.
The Genelec M030 Bi-amplified Active Monitor is now available with a U.S. MSRP of $595.00 each. For more information, please visit www.genelecusa.com/.
