—  Company launches  new series of Active Monitors with a sophisticated enclosure designed  specifically for contractors and system integrators—

NATICK, MA, July 7, 2011 —  Genelec,  the world’s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring, introduces the new 4000 Series – a range of two-way active loudspeakers which deliver the same high-level performance as the company’s studio monitors, but with additional features specifically designed for the system   integration market.

The 4000 Series’ connectivity and installation features ensure a smooth, trouble-free installation for contractors and  system integrators incorporating audio into their installations. The 4000 Series is  Genelec’s first foray into the commercial and professional installation market sector, and the company is working towards expanding its offering to the professional A/V market.

Both of the models in the new 4000 Series (4020 and  4030) feature major  advances in audio driver technology. They are  integrated with a  sophisticated enclosure design, and Genelec’s  proprietary Minimum  Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) Mid/High driver  technology takes a big step  in perfecting audio quality in professional  active monitors in the  installation market sector. The innovative  Directivity Control  Waveguide (DCW) is formed by blending the new MDC  driver surface perfectly with the enclosure’s front shape to provide  extremely  accurate control of the speaker’s directivity. This  acoustically  optimized smooth DCW provides astoundingly flat on-axis and  off-axis  frequency response.

The  4020 and 4030 are fitted with “Phoenix” screw  terminals, common with  the leading products in the A/V sector. This  ensures an easy, secure  connection and interference-free, professional  quality sound. The audio  performance and stress-free installation are  further enhanced by the  perfectly matched integrated amplifier. The  in-built protection  circuitry also guarantees the reliability of the  loudspeaker system in  all operating conditions, as drivers are  electronically protected from  signal peaks and misuse of the system.  This single-assembly combination  chassis makes for a surprisingly  compact and powerful amplified  loudspeaker system that is easy to  install and can be discreetly  integrated into end-user environments of  all types and design.

The  precise “Room Response” controls, including  calibrated bass tilt,  treble tilt and bass roll-off, optimize the  loudspeaker’s response to  different acoustical environments and  guarantee first-class sound,  whatever the interior design. Mounting is  also simple: the integrated  support points for Omnimount 20.5 series  hardware on the enclosure back  panel and the 3/8” UNC threaded hole at  the base of the enclosure,  combined with the wide variety of mounting  options and accessories  available from Genelec, provide versatility and  choice to suit all  installation scenarios.
