The Genelec 8020C active nearfield monitor gives you amazingly clear, accurate sound from a very compact speaker! Genelec builds the quality you've come to expect into each 8020C, from the distinctive cast-aluminum enclosure to the premium 4" LF driver and 0,75" tweeter to the dual 20-watt amplifiers and ISS Power Management. You'll be amazed at the big, natural sound you get from such a small enclosure! Now, you don't have to compromise on accurate monitoring - even if your space is limited. Equipped with an Iso-Pod stand, the Genelec 8020C can also be stand- or wall-mounted.

Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing feature (ISS) automatically switches the active 8020C to standby, reducing power consumption to less than half a watt when no audio signal has been detected a while. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on. Fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 directive for electronic devices, ISS is good for the environment, and will save you money on your studio electricity bill. It's a win-win proposition!
All the natural, uncolored, and extremely low distortion reproduction characteristics of the highly praised Genelec 8000 series are here in the 8020C, with a low-frequency extension you would never expect. Size is no handicap to performance with the 8020C! It incorporates Genelec's acoustic design innovations to minimize all forms of distortion. The 8020C has a die-cast aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE), which features relatively large internal volumes, softly curved edges, and outstanding mechanical strength. As a result, the 8020C's imaging accuracy and low frequency extension with such a compact enclosure are truly astounding.
Each 8020C monitor features a 4" bass driver along with a 0,75" tweeter loaded into a new advanced Genelec Directivity Controlled Waveguide (DCW) for optimum dispersion of highs. The free field frequency response is 66 Hz to 20 kHz (+/-2,5 dB). Bass and treble are each powered by 20-watt amplifiers. By adding the 7050B subwoofer to a pair of 8020Bs you create a full bandwidth surround system with genuine Genelec quality.
In order to improve frequency and power responses in the 8020C and other 8000 Series monitors, Genelec created the highly innovative Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE), featuring rounded edges and gently curved front and sides. In addition to unsurpassed frequency response, the 8020C's minimized cabinet edge diffraction yields superb imaging qualities.
The 8020C's revolutionary Directivity Controlled Waveguide (DCW) has been further enhanced to provide extremely accurate control of the speaker's directivity. This specially-shaped and very smooth surface is integrated with the 8020C enclosure and its area has been maximized to achieve an astoundingly flat on and off-axis frequency response. It provides a wide and consistent listening window, and minimizes harmful early room reflections and other colorations associated with conventional designs.
The 8020C is housed in Genelec's stiff and sturdy, yet thin and light die-cast aluminum enclosure. The cabinet wall curvature has been designed for best rigidity-to-weight ratio and optimal damping to minimize wall resonances. This also maximizes the internal volume, improving low-frequency response. The extremely durable semi-matte finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles allow for intensive handling without damaging the monitor. To increase the woofer's low frequency extension and SPL capacity, Genelec has designed an ingenious flow optimized reflex port. The long, curved tube maximizes airflow so deep bass can be reproduced without compression. The tube terminates with a wide flare, minimizing port noises and providing excellent bass articulation.
Every Genelec 8000 series monitor comes with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) as standard. The rubber based Iso-Pod has adjustable speaker tilt so that the acoustical axis can be pointed precisely towards the listener for best sound reproduction. The isolation feature prevents coloration caused by conduction of unwanted vibration to the mixing console or other mounting surface. Plus, the 8020C includes provisions for mounting on a mic stand or on the wall.
