Genelec Community Forum has been archived

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.

Genelec monitors outside

I have the 6010's with 5040 subwoofer and was wondering if they can manage being setup outside for a few hours. We're having a birthday party and It would be nice having some kind of background music, not at party levels. But I'm not sure if they'll handle the moisture. It's in northern sweden on a sunny day inside a party tent. 

Would not want to risk anything with these babies though. Thanks in advance Ilkka!

Officially (for example should there be a warranty issue) our products are approved for indoors use only but I know users who have used them outdoors for some periods of time without any problems. A sunny day inside a party tent is not the worst case when it comes to humidity in any case.
