Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

Can I combine the new 8020D/8030C Monitors with a subwoofer? I am looking to combine them with either the 7050B or the 7350 SAM subwoofer. It seems that this is not possible as neither of the subs have a centralised bass management nor do the new monitors have a high-pass filter / Bass roll-off.

Hi,

Yes you can combine them. The monitors have -4 dB bass-roll switch which needs to be enabled when used with 7050B or 7350A SAM subwoofer.

Dear Ilkka

Following the question above, I would like to ask about the combination of a SAM subwoofer and a non-SAM monitor. For example, the 8020D with the 7350A. In this case, is the GLM software able to equalize the whole system or only the sub or none of them?
