An ultra compact subwoofer with low frequency response and high SPL.

The Genelec 5040A is an extremely compact active subwoofer designed to complement up to five 6010A's with accurate and dynamic bass response reaching down to 35 Hz. Matched perfectly with the 6010A's, the 5040A conveniently features a remote volume control allowing adjustment of the entire sound system as well as versatile acoustic controls for perfect room integration.

Designed by Genelec's R&D team in co-operation with internationally acclaimed Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, the 5040A subwoofer features an unobtrusive, modern appearance.

The 5040A features a magnetically shielded downward firing 6 1/2" bass driver attached to a die-cast aluminium base plate. The base plate also serves as the chassis for the 40 Watt amplifier and crossover filter circuitry. The 5040A packs a respectable punch of 98 dB maximum sound pressure level.

The built-in crossover unit on the 5040A features six RCA input connectors for five main channels and one LFE channel and five RCA output connectors for the 6010A loudspeakers. The main channels have a fixed high pass filter to work with Genelec 6010A loudspeakers. 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 6010A loudspeakers.
