Genelec is introducing its new G Series Active Loudspeakers and F Series Active Subwoofers.
The G Series includes four models: G One (Woofer 3″ + Tweeter 3/4″), G Two (Woofer 4″ + Tweeter 3/4″), G Three (Woofer 5″ + Tweeter 3/4″) and G Four (Woofer 6.5″ + Tweeter 3/4″); and the F Series includes the F One (6″ active) and F Two (8″ active) subwoofers. Both series feature industrial design by award-winning designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec’s R&D team.
Genelec’s G Series active two-way loudspeakers combine 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, the company says. 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.
Blending with 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.
Genelec’s F Series active subwoofers are designed to complement G Series loudspeakers in applications where an extended and powerful reproduction of very low frequencies is required. The all-metal construction of the subwoofers hides the driver and connectors on the bottom, leaving the clean form of the enclosure undisturbed. Both models feature connections and bass management for up to 5.1 channels and a comprehensive suite of adjustments for perfect matching to the main loudspeakers and room acoustics.
