Building upon the success of the 7050A and 7050B models, the Genelec 7050C Studio Subwoofer is an 8″, 130W active subwoofer, well suited for discerning professionals in music, post, film, and broadcast. The 7050C boasts several improvements including a bypassable onboard bass management system, lower distortion, a universal mains voltage switched-mode power supply, and an increased maximum SPL of 103 dB.
The subwoofer works in stereo or 5.1 channel configurations using analog XLR inputs and outputs. The integrated bass management section features five input and output channels with 85 Hz low-pass/high-pass filters, plus a discrete 120 Hz LFE signal input with selectable +10 dB boost.
The 7050C utilizes a magnetically shielded low frequency driver, housed in a Genelec LSE spiral enclosure, which delivers an extended low-frequency response down to 24 Hz with low distortion. Rear panel DIP switches to allow the user to adjust subwoofer phase and low-frequency roll-off, engage the +10 dB LFE level, and activate and control the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption down to a mere 0.5 W in standby mode. The Genelec 7050C ships with a standard IEC power cord.
