THE NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 23, 2014 — Genelec (Booth 6220 [Hall A]), the world’s pioneer in active monitoring, is exhibiting its new M030 Bi-Amplified Active Monitors. The M030 is part of Genelec’s M Series, which is part of Genelec’s larger ongoing sustainable initiatives known as GES (Genelec Embedded Sustainability). These energy-efficient offerings take a new approach to monitor design without sacrificing the accuracy and reliability for which Genelec has been known for decades, while also offering something new and innovative for project studio customers.
The M030 utilizes a five-inch woofer and 3/4-inch metal dome tweeter, powered by a 50-Watt and 30-Watt amplifier, respectively. The free-field frequency response is 58Hz to 20kHz (+/-3dB), while low distortion peak SPL is 103dB at one meter. The M030 measures 10 3/4" H (273mm) x 7 1/2" W (190mm) x 7 1/2" D (190mm) and weighs 8.8 lbs (4.6kg).
The M030 employs a Natural Composite Enclosure™ (NCE™) manufactured for Genelec in Finland from wood fiber and recyclable material. The M030 uses Genelec enclosure design heritage, featuring rounded edges and gently curved front and sides to provide minimized cabinet edge diffraction and superb imaging. It also utilizes a Laminar Integrated Port™ (LIP™) for accurate low frequency response and minimizing the enclosure vibration and employs an integrated advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), yielding large internal volumes with outstanding mechanical strength.
The M030 features new class D amplifiers developed in-house by Genelec’s R&D/engineering team. The class D amplifiers are highly efficient, low distortion amplifiers that operate cooler and lighter than class A/B amps. They also feature Intelligent Signal Sensing™ (ISS™) power management with auto power-off/auto power-on and with the standby power consumption of less than 0.5W. Automatic voltage selection allows the monitors to operate throughout the world. Additionally, the M030 has high-performance drivers, intuitive room response controls and system calibration with XLR/TRS and unbalanced RCA inputs.
The Genelec M030 Bi-amplified Active Monitor is now available with a U.S. MSRP of $695.00 each. For more information, please visit www.genelecusa.com/.
