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.

1091A sub with 8030A

Youngling Viestejä: 1 Liittymispäivä: 6.8.2017 Viimeisimmät viestit

Trying to calibrate a 1091A sub out of a stereo pair of 8030A's and wondering if anyone's got any tips on same.

Setting the sub at -4db has just a little too mcuh bass for the room, and -6 has too little. If I adjust the volume on the front of the 8030's it seems to be 'pre' and driectly effects the level of the sub, and consquently there is no independent control of level right now.


Besides that, is there any other reason this pairing would be incompatible?


Many thanks

Hi Ernest!

Always worth trying is to find the best possible position for the subwoofer in you room, before using the controls. It might be that you get better results by moving the subwoofer as little as 0,5 meters.


Best Regards, Markus
