Two questions about M040

Padawan Posts: 27 Join Date: 9/15/14 Recent Posts
Hi,

I'm a brand new happy owner of two M040 and I'm very-very impressed with the sound.
I have two questions thought:

- If I turn the boxes on or they activate from the standy there is an audible click by one box and then by another. Is that normal?
- What Sub can you recommend?

This is normal startup sound of the speaker.


- What Sub can you recommend?

Our recommended subwoofer for the M040 is the Genelec 7060B model. http://www.genelec.com/products/7060b/

Hello Ilkka,

thanks a lot for suggested 1060.
What disadvantages I will get if I couple M040 with 1050? My studio room is quite small (ca. 12 m2) so I'm not sure if I need the whole power of 1060.

Thanks!

Hi,

Actually it's not only about power but connectivity too. 7050 doesn't have bass management (high pass filters for the speakers) which makes it unusable with M040. 7060 and larger models have bass management. One option would be to use our F Two model which also have bass management. It it priced only slightly higher than 7050. http://www.genelec.com/products/f-two/

Hello Ilkka,

I have a question about jack bypass switch of 7060 sub.
Is there a technical diagram available somewhere?

Is that a TS or TSR one?
I would suppose TS and both have to be connected for bypass function, the same way as the sustain pedal works?

Are there any plans for M series subs?

Thanks and regards,
Alex

Oh, I'm sorry not finding your answer. Thanks

Can you confirm what kind of jack one should use? TSR o a TS?

Both jack types will work. The wiring should be done so that all TRS/TS pins are connected when bypass needs to be enabled.
