M040's with 5040A?

Hi,

Could I pair 2 M040's with a 5040A? If not, any recommendations for a reasonably priced sub?

Thanks.

Hi,

Theoretically you can connect them together (use -10 dB level settings for the M040) but it is not recommended because the subwoofer is undersized for those speakers. Our recommendation is to use our 7060B or larger model.

Thanks Ilkka. I've been looking at the F Two but I simply cannot find it for sale anywhere for some reason, is it still being produced?

Hi,

Yes, it is in production. Have you asked your local distributor or only looked at the web shops?

Thanks, just got in touch with the London distributor.

Anyone have any experience with M040's and the F Two? Good combo?

Hi,

That is a big space and requires a strong subwoofer. I would recommend our new 7370A model: http://www.genelec.com/studio-monitors/ ... -subwoofer
