create surround with 1032 as main L/R

Hi,

I already own 2 x 1032s as main L/R, what can be used as centre and surround monitors and a sub.
I thought 3 x 8040's with a 7060 sub. Or would 3 x 8030 and a 7060 be suffice?
Mainly for music and postproduction work.

Any advice would be appreciated. :-)

Hello,

The 1032A is a very capable speaker, actually more capable than even an 8050A. As LCR speakers should always be as identical as possible, preferably the same model, the best choice for centre speaker is 1032A. For surrounds I would recommend something smaller, for example HT206B or HT208B which are the HT versions (identical performance) of the well known professional 1030A and 1031A models. Their sonic signature will best match with the 1032A LCR. If you insist having something from the newer 8000 series, an 8030A or 8040A would be a good choice for surrounds.

For subwoofer you should look at the following chart:

You can see that for a 1032A based system, best matching (maximum SPL wise) subwoofer for multichannel configuration would be 7071A or 2x 7070A. Since you mostly mix music which LF requirements are not as hard as when it comes to movies, one step smaller subwoofer would be ok, so 7070A or 2x 7060B.

Could you elaborate on this a little bit? I am trying to decide between these two speakers. Main use will be for listening to music.

Hi,

Please look at the datasheets below. You can notice that the 1032A has a 10" woofer vs. 8050A's 8" woofer. It also has a bit more amplifier power for the bass. Also the tuning frequency of the cabinet is a little higher, as well as the internal volume of the cabinet. All these result in higher maximum SPL capability, 124 dB vs. 120 dB (Maximum peak acoustic output per pair on top of console, @ 1 m from the engineer with music material)

Hi !

Same question. What model would you recommend to combine with a couple genelec 1038A (L+R) for surround mixing 5.1 :?

L -1038A C - ? R-1038A

Ls - ? LFE - ? Rs - ?

Thank you in advance
