Genelec 5040B - Mystic Black - Single – No Longer Available

40W subwoofer w/ 6.5" driver - mystic black finish
MFR# 5040BPM

Product Description

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

Our Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) feature, reduces power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby, when no audio signal has been detected for some time. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on.

ISS is fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices.

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

The 5040B 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 5040B packs a respectable punch of 98 dB maximum sound pressure level.

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

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
