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.

Mixing 8030B and 8030C

Mixing 8030B and 8030C

I would like to move my 8030Bs to the rear in a 7.1 system and get 8030Cs for the front left and right. The center will remain an 8030B. I just want to make sure they are sonically identical. I know there was a paper describing the differences, but I can no longer find it.

8030C model has new and improved Class D amplfiers and new crossover filter design so we can't quarantee that they would be 100% identical to the previous revisions. Having said that, they are identical enough to be used in the same multichannel system, as long as different revisions are not used in left and right main channels, which are the most critical.
