Hi! Saw the new 7050C and just have a few questions

1. If 7050C is not switched on, but it is still connected to the studio monitors (OUT) and interface (IN), can the signal still go through so that I can still hear music coming out of my studio monitors?

2. 7050B used to send full signal to the monitors which requires partnering only with Genelec monitors as they have a frequency cutoff at 85hz (or is it 80). I read that 7050C now can filter signals such that only 85hz or 100hz and above signal will be sent to monitors? If so, this means I can partner it with any studio monitors right?

Appreciate your help on this!

Hi There! I'm sorry for late reply.

1. If subwoofer is shutdown, then unfortunately the monitors connected to it will not play audio.

2. 7050C has bass management, so it will play frequencies below 85Hz and send the higher frequencies to the monitors. In that sense it can also be used with 3rd party monitors, but we always recommend to use Genelec monitors and subwoofers together.

For faster replies, I would kindly advise to reach us through our official forms from link below:
