Inc., U.S. distributor of Genelec Home Theater Sound Systems, has expanded
its line of home theater products with the addition of the new HTS3B

to delivering superior monitoring solutions to the high-end Home Theater
and Consumer Audio market sectors.
The Genelec HTS3B and HTS4B are powerful low frequency
subwoofers created specifically for high quality digital multi-channel
home theater systems. The HTS3B is equipped with one active magnetically
shielded 10" driver, mounted on the front side of a compact cabinet,
and two 10" passive radiators, one on each side of the cabinet.
The HTS3B features a frequency response of 18 Hz to 120 Hz, and has
a maximum SPL of 114 dB. The 200W amplifier unit is integrated into
the HTS3B subwoofer cabinet, which measures a compact 17" x 14.5"
The HTS4B shares the same design principles as the HTS3B

amplifier unit integrated into the subwoofer. Additionally, the HTS4B
has a frequency response of 18 Hz to 120 Hz, a maximum SPL of 118 dB,

Both the HTS3B and HTS4B have XLR and RCA line level input connectors
(with input sensitivity) providing easy connection to all types of decoders,
as well as a Link Out connector, which allows coupling two or more subwoofers
together when higher sound pressure levels are required. Bass roll-off
rate and crossover phase can be adjusted to suit different acoustic
environments and subwoofer positioning.
The amplifier is equipped with an Autostart function for
automatic switching between Standby and On modes. Connectors for remote
power On/Standby switches are also provided.
Commenting on the new subwoofers, Karen Richardson remarked,
“With the launch of our HTS3B and HTS4B models, Genelec once again
raises the performance bar for all subwoofers. The new compact cubes
have powerful bass down to 18 Hz and provide true cinema excitement
in the home theater environment. We invite consumers to share in the
benefits of our uncompromising audio standards, and we're confident
our audience will clearly hear the difference in Genelec Active Monitoring.”
