Genelec Three-Way DSP System
Genelec is now shipping its new 8260A Three-Way DSP System. The 8260A breaks new ground in electro-acoustic design, as mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs are linked closely together. The 8260A features major advances in audio driver technology, integrated with a sophisticated enclosure design and Genelec's proprietary Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) Mid/High driver technology takes a big step in perfecting audio quality in professional active studio monitors.
This breakthrough in coaxial driver design provides extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, both on the acoustical axis as well as off-axis. The very smooth frequency response leads to outstanding clarity and definition of the inner details of the audio. The 8260A combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver (MDC) with a modern waveguide technology (Genelec's Directivity Control Waveguide/DCW), ensuring that drivers couple coherently over their full operating bandwidth, as well as creating coincident mid-frequency/high-frequency point source.
As a new member of the TEC Award-winning 8200 Series, the 8260A features Genelec DSP signal processing responsible for all loudspeaker functions, such as the crossover filters, driver compensation response, driver position alignment, room response alignment, calibration and equalization-related filters, as well as distance compensating levels/delays. The Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software allows the 8260A to be used together with other 8200 Series DSP monitors and 7200 Series subwoofers in the same setup. Genelec AutoCal fully automated room calibration and sound system alignment method provides consistent and accurate frequency response for a multichannel audio system in widely varying room environments.
The innovative Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) is formed by blending the new Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) driver surface perfectly with the enclosure's front shape to provide extremely accurate control of the speaker's directivity. This acoustically optimized smooth DCW provides astoundingly flat on-axis and off-axis frequency response.
The midrange driver cone forms a smooth, continuous surface between the tweeter and the enclosure. This prevents acoustical diffractions. Diffractions are a major cause of uneven high frequency response in traditional coaxial drivers. The smooth midrange surface contributes to a perfect DCW behavior. The treble and midrange drivers couple coherently over their full oper...
