8040b with 7050c

8040b with 7050c

Hi Genelec community!

I am thinking about upgrading my 8020c+7040a experience. I am considering pair of 8030c with 7050c or 8040b with 7050c. There is big step up in power in 7050c over 7050b exceeding even 7060b which was recommended match for pair of 8040s. 7050c has also bass management which will properly pair sub with speaker.

What do you think?

Thanks in advance :)

In my opinion you can do it, only if you buy one more 7050c later. The problem with one 7050 is that the 8040 will produce more SPL and the 7050 cannot follow. With 2 7050 you can do it, depending also on the size of your room.

Thank you for your answer. You are right. Despite lower output power (120 W vs. 130 W) 7060b has 5db higher SPL than 7050c which is a lot. I will go with 8030c+7050c combo then. I hope it will be enough to fill my 40 m2 loft. Cheers. m
