Genelec 8020C is small in dimensions, but big in ambition. Designed to suit the broadest possible range of listening environments, it thrives when space is at a premium, and draws on the innovation of the 8000 Series for an unrivalled near-field experience.The compact 8020C displays outstanding performance and takes full advantage of the 8000 Series unconventional and innovative features. The all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™) and advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) technologies are carefully matched with state-of-the art electronics and transducers design. It also features Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry which switches the monitor to standby when no audio input is detected (ErP 2013 Directive).
There is a reduction in the power amplifier output requirement. With no energy lost in the passive crossover filter components, the amplifier power output requirements are reduced considerably (by up to 1/2 in some cases) without any reduction in the acoustic power output of the loudspeaker system.
The frequency response becomes independent of any dynamic changes in the driver's electrical characteristics or the drive level.
There is an increased flexibility and precision to adjust and fine tune each output frequency response for the specific drivers used.
