Genelec, the worlds longstanding leader in active monitoring, is shipping its 6010A 
Bi-Amplified Loudspeaker System and matching 5040A Active Subwoofer in a striking
new finish, dark Mystic black. The 6010A is Genelecs smallest speaker system to date,
measuring 7 1/8" x 4 3/4" x 4 1/2" (height with Iso-Pod 7 11/16"). The system has been
designed for computer sound systems, workstations, Master Control Rooms, and other
close proximity listening applications requiring a low-profile monitoring solution.
It can even be plugged directly into personal music players for enhanced acoustic
enjoyment. However, size is no handicap to performance as the 6010A two-way active
monitoring system incorporates Genelecs acoustic design innovations to minimize all
forms of distortion.

Designed as an active loudspeaker, the 6010A contains proprietary drivers, advanced
power amplifiers perfectly matched to the drivers, active crossover filters and
protection circuitry. The 6010A has a die-cast all-aluminum Minimum Diffraction
Enclosure (MDE), which features large internal volumes, softly curved edges and
outstanding mechanical strength. As a result, the imaging accuracy and low frequency
extension from such a compact enclosure is truly astounding.

The 6010A also incorporates Genelecs advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW),
which provides an amazingly smooth on- and off-axis response, while the long, curved
reflex port ends in a wide flare for excellent bass articulation.

Each monitor features a 3" bass driver along with a 3/4" high frequency driver
loaded into a Genelec advanced Directivity Control Waveguide. The free field
frequency response is 74 Hz - 18 kHz (2.5 dB). Maximum peak SPL output per pair with
music material is 102 dB. Bass and treble drivers are each powered by 12-Watt

The 6010A is magnetically shielded for use in environments where video monitors are
in close proximity. Additionally, the 6010A has a hard-wearing painted outer

Genelec 5040A Active Subwoofer
The Genelec 5040A subwoofer, also now shipping in Mystic Black, provides a perfect
partner to the 6010A for both stereo and surround applications. Featuring a visually
arresting design, the 5040A extends the LF response down to 35 Hz with amazing bass
articulation, due in large part to this design. The playback level for the whole
system is conveniently controlled by remote volume control provided with the 5040A
subwoofer. With five main input/output channels and a dedicated LFE channel with
85/120 Hz reproduction bandwidth selection, the 6010A/5040A system fulfills the
needs of 5.1 productions.

The 5040A is designed to complement up to five of Genelecs 6010A active monitors in
stereo and surround applications, or a pair of the slightly larger 8020As in a
stereo configuration. The subwoofer features a single 6 1/2" proprietary driver with
a 40-Watt power amplifier. It has a frequency response from 35 - 85 Hz (3 dB), and
the ability to deliver short-term sine wave of 96 dB SPL. The built-in crossover
unit features six RCA input connectors for five main channels and LFE channel and
five RCA output connectors for the 6010A loudspeakers. The main channels have a
fixed high pass filter to work with the Genelec 6010A while the LFE channel can
reproduce signals up to 120 Hz. In addition to the RCA input connectors, a 3.5 mm
stereo jack input connector is also active and mixed for convenient connection to
portable audio players or computers.

Adjustable input sensitivity, in combination with adjustable crossover phase, allows
a seamless integration between the 5040A subwoofer and the main speakers. Bass
roll-off rate and input sensitivity can also be adjusted to suit different
acoustical environment and subwoofer position. Like all Genelec active subwoofers,
the 5040A also features extremely low distortion.

Genelecs 6010A Bi-Amplified Active Monitor and the 5040A Active Subwoofer in dark
Mystic black are now available with pricing as follows: 6010A $375.00 U.S. MSRP
each; 5040A $750.00 U.S. MSRP each.
