Genelec is debuting its new G Two Active Loudspeaker, part of the new Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers.
The G Two (Woofer 4″ + Tweeter 3/4″) joins three other models in the series: G One (Woofer 3″ + Tweeter 3/4″), G Three (Woofer 5″ + Tweeter 3/4″) and G Four (Woofer 6.5″ + Tweeter 3/4″); as well as the complementary F One (6″ active) and F Two (8″ active) subwoofers. The G Series and F Series models are designed to be used together or separately. The G Two and its brethren feature industrial design by designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec’s R&D team.
The G Two active two-way loudspeaker combines an organic, rounded form with powerful and precise sound reproduction. The gently curving design is not chosen for good looks alone. Sharp edges or corners on a loudspeaker enclosure cause acoustic reflections that interfere with the direct sound. This harmful interference – diffraction – is dramatically reduced by the smooth, curved design of the G Series, audible in the excellent resolution and solid sound imaging of the products, according to the company.
Blending seamlessly to the enclosure shape, the proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) formed around the high-frequency driver is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the two drivers. This results in a smooth frequency response on- and off-axis and controlled directivity maximizing the direct sound aimed to the listening area.
