I frequently hear about the "famous" mid scoop in the Genelec line. Basically I am pretty happy wiht my 8040s. Still I am curious about how Genelec engineers or users in this forum would response to this isse. Myth or fact? Thanks. Cheers, Oliver

I did some own research on this issue and post a comment on GS:

Still I would be happy to get some feedback from the Genelc staff and/or community. Cheers, Oliver

Hello,

Here you can find datasheets for all present and past Genelec models. If you look at the frequency response and power response curves, you can notice that there is no technical or objective explanation/reason to this phenomenon. I suspect that part of this is related to mid-range emphasis on other speakers, for example the famous Yamaha NS-10. If you listen to a flat response after that, for sure it will sound different.
