Genelec has announced the 7050C subwoofer, with an extended low frequency response and higher SPL and lower distortion than its 7050B predecessor, along with the added benefits of a professional bass management system. With its extremely efficient size-to-SPL ratio, the 7050C’s LSE spiral enclosure has been refined to deliver unconventionally clean audio output even at peak levels, with a 3dB increase in SPL capability and a universal switched-mode power supply.

Equally suited to stereo and multichannel audio systems, the 7050C is designed to accompany Genelec’s existing professional subwoofers. The bass management system provides five input and output channels with 85Hz low-pass/high-pass filters, plus a discrete 120Hz LFE signal input with selectable +10dB boost. The enclosure measures 410mm height, with a width of 350mm and a depth of 319mm, and contains a single 8-inch magnetically shielded low-frequency driver, housed in a Genelec LSE spiral enclosure, which helps deliver LF response down to 24Hz.

The 7050C can be calibrated to suit its acoustic environment courtesy of a comprehensive set of rear panel DIP switches. Adjustable settings include phase and low frequency roll-off, the activation of the +10dB LFE level, and the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption to 0.5W in standby.

The 7050 first appeared when the original Genelec 7050A subwoofer debuted in 2002, replacing the 1091A. In 2005, the 7050B followed with an improved specification and feature set, and now the 7050C is a suitable companion for close-field monitors, including Genelec’s own 8010, 8020, 8030 and M030 models.

‘The 7050 name is respected in studios all over the world, so as we developed this new version of a much-loved classic, we treated it with great care,’ says Genelec MD, Siamäk Naghian. ‘I’m delighted to say that the result, the 7050C, honours Genelec’s core principles – purity of sound, products that last for many years with the minimum of maintenance, and the skilful implementation of the latest loudspeaker technology. The 7050C is so advanced that it could easily have represented an entirely new product, but instead we chose to continue the legacy of a well-established model, made greater still by this new step forward.’
