yeah, if the specs are the same, it's the same product.

they sometimes do that, sell the same product for studio, hi-fi or home theater markets.

sometimes there's differences in what the LEDs do or what the audio connectors are.

Hello,

Indeed acoustically they are the same. The differences are on color variations, and  F One uses Remote Controller, while 5040A uses different kind of volume controller, like 9310A: https://www.genelec.com/studio-monitors/outboard-products/9310a-volume-controller ​​​​

Please let us know if you have any further questions and we are glad to help.

Yes they are almost similar
The Genelec 5040A is an extremely compact and accurate active subwoofer designed to complement up to five 6010B monitors.
