Genelec has created a compact, full-range stereo monitoring solution specifically designed to meet the needs of the project, recording, multimedia, or post-production studio environment. The Triple Play™ full-range stereo monitoring system comprises two Genelec 1029A two-way, bi-amplified active monitors and a Genelec 7050A LSE™ active subwoofer.

The 7050A subwoofer has been specifically designed to complement the 1029A active monitor. When combined, they deliver a smoothness of frequency response comparable to larger Genelec monitors. The subwoofer also lets the Triple Play offer greater placement flexibility. The compact 1029As are small enough to be located on a desktop as part of a multimedia/workstation audio system and visually appear fairly unobtrusive in a typical control room or project studio. The 7050A, when appropriately placed, can overcome many of the low-frequency problems associated with freestanding full-range speakers in small rooms.

This three-piece system has in-room flat frequency response—38 Hz to 20k Hz (+/-3 dB)—and each component features an integrated active balanced crossover, driver protection circuit and dedicated power amplifier. The Triple Play can produce peak acoustic levels of over 110 dB SPL @ 1 meter.

The system's focal point is Genelec’s 7050A LSE Series Active Subwoofer, which employs the company's proprietary Laminar Spiral Enclosure™ (LSE) technology. The 7050A’s cabinet is made of sheet metal rolled into a spiral and clamped between thick MDF side panels. Designed to complement the 1029A active monitor, the 7050A features a single 8-inch proprietary driver with 70-watt power amplifier, a frequency response of 38 Hz to 85 Hz +/-3 dB, and has the ability to deliver SPLs of 103 dB @ 1 meter. Like all Genelec LSE Active Subwoofers, the 7050A also features extremely low distortion.

The Triple Play system also includes two Genelec 1029A two-way, bi-amplified active monitors. The 1029A is a compact close-field system featuring a high degree of accuracy and wide dynamic range and incorporates Genelec’s proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide Technology™ (DCW). Powered by a pair of 40-watt amplifiers, the Genelec 1029A monitors offer a frequency response of 68 Hz to 20 kHz (+/-2.5 dB) from a 5-inch woofer and 3/4-inch hard-domed tweeter. The 1029A has a front-mounted volume control and rear-panel bass and treble tilt room response controls. The Genelec 1029A active monitors measure 10x6x7.125 inches and are housed in a die-cast aluminum enclosure that features rugged construction, while also providing massive heat-dissipation capability and shielding against RF interference. Each speaker is also EM-shielded for additional protection when used in close proximity to video monitors.

All monitors in the Triple Play system feature extensive driver protection.

Available now, the Genelec Triple Play system has suggested retail price of $1,850 for the complete system.
