210 mm (8") high efficiency polymer composite cone driver
25 mm (1") metal dome tweeter loaded with proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™)
Genelec Bi-Amplified Monitoring Systems are compact active monitors with performance equal to much larger systems. They contain inbuilt electronic crossovers, overload protection and power amplifiers. They are ideal for near field monitoring, broadcast and TV control rooms, mobile vans, home studios and travelling engineers.
Genelec's unique Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance. The versatile room frequency response controls allow excellent room response tailoring. The speakers may be used in vertical or horizontal orientation.
Everything is built into the speaker enclosure. The only connections required are the mains supply and the line level input signal. This ensures consistent audio quality.
An increasingly popular application of the bi-amplified systems is surround sound reproduction. Building a full fledged surround system with Genelec monitors is extremely simple.
And, Genelec has powerful subwoofers 1092A and 1094A to nicely integrate into the systems. You can build conventional stereo pairs or full surround sound systems with precise, accurate and extremely powerful sound. The compact 1091A is intended for use with 1029A to have full audio band reproduction down to lowest frequencies.
Directivity Control Waveguide ™ (DCW™)
The revolutionary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology greatly improves the performance of a direct radiating multi-way loudspeaker.
The aim is to match the frequency response and directivity of the drivers in the loudspeaker. This results in excellent match of overall frequency response on and off axis.
The improved directivity control reduces the reflected sound at the listening position. This improves the stereo imaging and ensures very small sensitivity to varying control room acoustics, actually much smaller sensitivity than with any conventional direct radiator design.
And this is not all! The DCW technology also improves the drive unit sensitivity
even up to +6 dB, and therefore increases the maximum sound pressure level as well
as decreases the distortion
Flat on and off-axis response for wider usable listening area
Increased direct-to-reflected sound ratio for reduced room coloration
Improved stereo imaging
Increased driver efficiency
Increased system SPL capacity
Decreased drive unit distortion
Reduced cabinet edge diffraction
