The Genelec 5040A is a very compact active subwoofer designed to complement up to five Genelec 6010A active loudspeakers or a pair of the slightly bigger 6020A’s.
The Genelec 5040A extends the system’s bass response down to 35 Hz and integrates perfectly with the 6010A’s in any environment. The playback level for the whole system is conveniently controlled by the remote volume control provided with the 5040A subwoofer.
The Genelec 5040A features a magnetically shielded downward firing 61/2” bass driver attached to a die-cast aluminium base plate. The base plate also serves as the chassis for the 40 Watt amplifier and 5.1-channel crossover filter circuitry The 5040A packs a respectable punch of 96 dB maximum SPL. The built-in crossover unit features six RCA input connectors for five main channels and LFE channel and five RCA output connectors for the 6010A loudspeakers.
The main channels of the Genelec 5040A have a fixed high pass filter to work with with Genelec 6010A loudspeakers. The LFE channel can reproduce signals up to 120 Hz. In addition to the RCA connectors, a 3.5 mm stereo jack input connector is provided for convenient connection to portable audio players or computers.
Adjustable input sensitivity in combination with adjustable crossover phase allows a seamless integration between the subwoofer and the main loudspeakers. Bass roll-off rate and input sensitivity can also be adjusted to suit different acoustical environments and subwoofer positioning.
