Genelec Home Audio G Series Active Loudspeakers

November 24 2014, 04:00
Genelec Home Audio recently launched its new G Five Active Loudspeaker, the flagship model in the Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers for home audio. Despite its relatively small size, the G Five brings out a level of performance comparable to much larger loudspeakers. Its bass reproduction goes lower than what most subwoofers can do, and simultaneously providing extremely high sound pressure with very low distortion.

Thanks to its large waveguide, the Genelec G Five reproduces all the nuances and dynamics of the audio material with incomparable fidelity. As featured in all Genelec G Series, the G Five provides acoustical response adjustments to allow correct set up and acoustical calibration to the room in which it is placed. The G Five can even be placed in an acoustically challenging room and provide an amazing listening experience.


The G Five (Woofer 8” + Tweeter 1”) joins four other models in the G Series: G One (Woofer 3” + Tweeter 3/4”), G Two (Woofer 4” + Tweeter 3/4”) and G Three (Woofer 5” + Tweeter 3/4”) and G Four (Woofer 6.5” + Tweeter 3/4”); as well as the complementary F One (6.5” active) and F Two (8” active) subwoofers. The G Five and its brethren features the same elegant industrial design by award-winning designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec’s R&D team. Designed to be used together or separately, G Series models and the complementary F Series subwoofers offer an exceptional home audio solution.

All G Series active two-way loudspeakers combine an organic, rounded form with powerful and precise sound reproduction. The gently curving design is not chosen for good looks alone. Sharp edges or corners on a loudspeaker enclosure cause acoustic reflections that interfere with the direct sound. This harmful interference – diffraction – is dramatically reduced by the smooth, curved design of the G Series, audible in the excellent resolution and solid sound imaging of the products.

Blending seamlessly to the enclosure shape, the proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) formed around the high-frequency driver is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the two drivers. This results in a smooth frequency response on- and off-axis and controlled directivity maximizing the direct sound aimed to the listening area.

The new F Series Active Subwoofers include the F One (6” active) and F Two (8” active) models, designed to be used separately or to complement the new Genelec G Series of active two-way loudspeakers and are designed for home audio applications where an extended and powerful reproduction of very low frequencies is required. The all-metal construction of the subwoofers hides the driver and connectors on the bottom, leaving the clean form of the enclosure undisturbed. Both models feature connections and bass management for up to 5.1 channels and a comprehensive suite of adjustments for perfect matching to the main loudspeakers and room acoustics.
