Genelec 8030C 2-Way Compact Active Studio Monitor - Producer Gray, Single

Compact active monitor featuring rounded edges and color-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminum Minimum Diffraction Enclosure
MFR# 8030CP

Product Description

As a consistent best-seller at Vintage King, the Genelec 8030C fits perfectly in between larger monitors with excellence performance and desktop models with a small footprint. This studio monitor offers precise imaging and staggering detail, but it can also go louder and lower than other Genelec monitors. It’s the perfect choice for larger spaces.

When your audio project requires a powerful performance without sacrificing quality, the Genelec 8030C active studio monitor is made to exceed your expectations. The 8030C two-way monitor, which was introduced in 2017, delivers up to 4 dB higher SPL and also has a lower energy consumption than the earlier models of the Genelec 8030.


As strikingly stylish as it is sonically impressive, the Genelec 8030C Studio Monitors feature the iconic rounded edges and color-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminum Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (or MDE). Each element of the monitor’s design is crafted to perfect your audio listening experience. 

The monitor offers precise on and off-axis frequency reproduction, thanks to the Directivity Control Waveguide (or DCW). The broad low-frequencies and high SPLs are designed with a flow-optimized internal curved reflex tube and a maximum internal volume.

When your audio work is finished, the Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (or ISS) circuitry helps detect when your audio system is no longer in use, thus placing it into an environmentally friendly, power-saving standby mode.

From professional recording studios to outside broadcast vehicles, the Genelec 8030C loudspeaker has been designed to combine extraordinary power with absolute precision in any listening situation.


The 8030C monitor features Genelec's MDE with rounded edges and a gently sloped front and sides. This helps allow the 8030C speaker to achieve a smooth frequency response along with superb imaging qualities with a minimized cabinet edge diffraction in a home studio or professional recording studio.

Order a Genelec 8030C active studio monitor and say goodbye to any muddled, inaccurate sound and mixes that never seem to translate. Genelec has upgraded their popular nearfield monitor with more power, higher SPL capability, and of course, lower energy consumption. When it comes to mixing pro audio sounds and producing professional music, there's no replacement for quality studio monitors. 

The Genelec 8030C delivers a focused and precise sound with timeless stereo imaging and directionality, and remarkably deep bass for its size. Users can hear dimensional nuances in audio mixes they never even realized were there! The 8030C features advanced technology such as the built-in Iso-Pod decoupling and overall ISS power management. Try a new level of monitoring accuracy with Genelec 8030C monitor speakers or any Genelec subwoofer from Vintage King.

For their size, these are probably still the best option. There is still enough low end present to make reasonable decisions. You won’t feel the thump, but you’ll hear the info you need. Great clarity in the middle. The top end is present but not piercing. It can be a little fatiguing with longer listening periods (that may also improve with more break-in period). Auto-standby works great. Filtering options on the back are good for basic room shaping. Particularly good with detail in vocals / dialogue. The build quality is exceptional.

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
