The 7050 subwoofer may be too small for 8040 pair. The normal suggested setup is 7060 or the new 7360 subwoofer.

Both subwoofers can be used with no problem. 7360A has much better set of adjustments available with the GLM software.

Hi there, 

GLM works only with SAM series monitors and subwoofer so you would need 8340A. Neither 8040A nor 8040B works with the GLM.
