Genelec has released the 7040A ultra-compact subwoofer to complement the 8010, 8020 and M030 active monitors in music creation and sound design applications, as well as audio and video production work in small rooms and improvised monitoring environments.

Genelec 7040AThe 7040A is the latest addition to Genelec’s line of active monitors, and features Genelec’s Laminar Spiral Enclosure (LSE) technology. All electronics, amplifier circuitry, drivers and the enclosure are designed, assembled, tested and calibrated individually in the company’s factory in Finland.

The 7040A produces 100dB of sound pressure level (SPL) using a 6.5-inch woofer and a Genelec-designed class-D amplifier. At the lowest frequencies this SPL is radiated from the bass reflex port by channelling large volumes of air movement through it. The LSE enclosure is made from a spiral-shaped strip of steel, providing maximal mechanical stability for the large pressures generated inside the subwoofer. The spiral forms the bass reflex port as well, enabling linear airflow also at the highest SPL outputs. This flow-optimized construction provides extended low frequency capacity and low distortion resulting in precise bass articulation.

Calibration of the 7040A to the listening environment is done using DIP switches located on the subwoofer connector panel. These controls address typical monitoring placement configurations.

With external dimensions of 16.125 x 13.75 x 8.125-inch (410 x 350 x 205mm), the 7040A has a footprint that is smaller than that of a small practice guitar amplifier. It is also narrow enough to fit in a 19-inch rack and weighs 25lb (11.3kg). For engineers working at different locations, an optional carry bag allows professionals to safely transport the 7040A to serve any monitoring space.
