Genelec Updates the 7050C Subwoofer

Building on the original 7050 subwoofer, Genelec has improved the product, now called the 7050C. The LSE enclosure has been further refined to deliver unconventionally clean audio output even at peak levels. Users also benefit from a 3-dB increase in SPL capability, plus a by-passable professional bass management system and universal switched-mode power supply.

The bass management system provides 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 measures 16.125 inches (410 mm) in height, with a width of 13.75 inches (350 mm), a depth of 12.5625 inches (319 mm) and contains a single eight-inch (205 mm) magnetically shielded low frequency driver, housed in a Genelec LSE spiral enclosure for extended LF response and extremely low distortion.

The 7050C can be calibrated to suit its acoustic environment courtesy of a comprehensive set of rear panel DIP switches. Adjustable settings include phase and low frequency roll-off, the activation of the +10 dB LFE level, and the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption to  0.5 watts in standby.

The Genelec 7050C is here.
