Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

hello and help ..
I received this morning two 8020C monitors .. gift from my brother who lives in the USA
but .. I am in France ... and soon I have connected my two 8020C on the french power grid .. which is 220 V ... but it turns out that the 8020C are American and therefore they have not enjoyed the 220 ​​V ... saw that they are designed for the 110 V ...
WHAT to do? then send my two Genelecs directements to the factory for repair? Finland..?
please help me !

Your speakers need to repaired and for that you should contact our distributor in France. After you have had them repaired, you should purchase a step-down transformer (220V to 110V) with at least 300VA rating.
