Genelec 7060B + 8020A

Youngling Viestejä: 1 Liittymispäivä: 6.12.2017 Viimeisimmät viestit



I need your help, please.

I´ve a mix between hifi and proaudio equipment and I´m not sure if I´ve connected/ configurated correctly my Genelec 8020A with the subwoofer 7060B.



The balanced (XLR) output of the previo Advanced Acoustic MPP 206 are connected with the inputs L/R of the subwoofer 7060B and the outputs of the 7060B with the inputs of the monitors 8020A.

My doubts:

1st- Are correctly connected?

2nd- I´ve not connected the unbalanced output of the previo because I prefer the subwoofer control of the low frequency cut.

3rd- Is necessary to put ON the sw2 (Roll-off) of the monitors?

4th- I suppose that is not necessary to setting the LFE adjustment if I not use a mixer.

5th- How can I use the phase alignament?

TRhank you for the good questions, you seem to have all just the correct way.

1. Yes, as instructed in the operating manuals

2. Our suggestion would be to use the balanced XLR output on the preamp, for better signal quality.

3. No, the subwoofer will apply the needed bass management filtering by default.

4. Not needed in a stereo system.

5. Toggle the phase alignment switches on the subwoofer and observe at the listening position. Goal is to find the setting that gives you the highest playback level when playing a 85Hz sine wave signal.

The needed 85Hz tone can be generated by the subwoofer for the adjustmet, by turning on the 2 DIP switches labelled for Test Tone. This way you get the test tone out from the Center output connector, so you need to connect  your left or right speaker to this output for the adjustment and then connect it back after you are done.

You can also play the 85Hz tone from a computer, not needing to use the subwoofer tone generator.
