Genelec G series for desktop use with sub...size suggestions

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 3/26/17 Recent Posts
hi there..newbie to this forum.
i have the focal alpha em but they can't take a sub.
was reading up on the G series and i am interested in trying them out
to be used on my desktop as nearfield or other for personal listening.
(laptop: ripped cds, tidal hifi, 24/192 files)....but am unsure what
size would be best...even be used for a 15x15 kitchen.
...would get a sub for the meaty bottom end.

someone locally is also selling some 8030a series...would they also suffice
with a subwoofer?..similar sound as the G series or not ?

I'm sorry for late reply. Where are you located? Genelec G-series and 8000-series are acoustically the same, so they can be both used in Home and Pro -audio.

I would recommend you to contact your local distributor or dealer for suggestions for your purpose. You can find our distributor from link below:
