What Speaker Purchase with this setup ?

Youngling Viestejä: 8 Liittymispäivä: 8.2.2011 Viimeisimmät viestit
Dear Genelec.

I curently own x 2 8030a and x2 8020a

I only use the 8030a for work but am looking to purchase a sub and centre speaker so I can also watch movies in 5.1

I cant justify spending the money on the 7060b to my wife so am limited to purchasing the 7050b.

what centre speaker would you advise me to purchase to complement this setup another 8030a or 8020a?

I understand regarding the spl for the 7050b but I just want the sub to give me more of a punch when i watch my dvds etc its not for profesional monitoring or anything.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Hi James,

The centre channel is the most important channel since it produces most of the dialogue. Its sound quality and SPL capability should match the left and right main speaker, so I would recommend 8030A.

When it comes to subwoofer selection, have you considered our new 5051A? It will offer slightly more performance than the 7050B and has a more suitable outlook for home environment.

Thanks Ilkka

I cant find any information to your new subwoofer could you send me the link?

Also will the sub deal with the crossovers between my 8030a like the 7050b?

Also what is the cost and dimensions of this sub


Kind Regards

James

Hi James,

The 5051A will be available by the end of this year. Here you can find some information (only in Finnish, sorry): http://www.genelec.fi/ht/news/140/96/Li ... eyttoeoen/

Yes, it will handle the crossover between the main speakers and subwoofer.

Suggested retail price in Finland is 1200 EUR.

Dimensions: 305 mm (height) x 360 mm (diameter)

Many Thanks for your quick reply.

I will look into this when it is released.

Due to the nature of my room could this sub be flush mounted into a wall or would this advesley affect the sound.

Also would the SPL be enough for the 8030a in a 5.1 setup not just stereo?

Kind Regards

James
