It is an excellent tool for large recording studios, broadcast and surround installations, mastering suites and TV and post-production houses.
Capable of producing peak SPL of over 120 dB per pair, and with a low frequency response extending down to 35 Hz, the 8050B is a powerful wideband bi-amplified monitoring system.
The Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) feature, reduces power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby, when no audio signal has been detected for some time. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on.
ISS is fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices.
The sophisticated low level active crossover has versatile controls for matching the monitor to difficult acoustic environments.
Dedicated very low distortion amplifiers power the drivers, with overload protection for each driver.
The stiff, volume efficient MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) enclosure and long, curved, flow optimized reflex port combined with low distortion drivers provide solid, clear, low frequencies with a minimum of compression, distortion and port noise artifacts.
The gently curved sided and front MDE™ enclosure and advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) provide exceptionally smooth on and off axis frequency responses, precise imaging and optimal directivity across the whole audio spectrum.
