A Subwoofer for Your Monitoring System!

Based on the original 5040A, the Genelec 5040B is an ultra-compact active subwoofer that pairs perfectly with up to five 6010BMM powered monitors. The Genelec 5040B subwoofer sports a magnetically shielded 6.5" bass driver and a 40-watt amplifier with crossover filter circuitry, working together to pack a respectable 96dB maximum SPL. When you add it to your system (surround or stereo), you can use the 5040B's included remote volume control to adjust all the speakers and even take charge of versatile acoustic controls. And since it comes protected by ISS power management, you never have to worry about shutting down your Genelec 5040B subwoofer.

Genelec 5040B 6.5" Active Subwoofer at a Glance:
  • High-quality components: 6.5" driver and 40-watt amplifier
  • Perfect for surround with 6 RCA inputs and 5 RCA outputs
  • Included remote plus a handy 1/8" input for your other devices
  • Protected by Genelec's ISS power management system
High-quality components: 6.5" driver and 40-watt amplifier

The Genelec 5040B subwoofer was designed in cooperation with internationally acclaimed Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, resulting in top performance and an unobtrusive, modern appearance. At the heart of the Genelec 5040B is its magnetically shielded, downward-firing 6.5" bass driver, which is attached to a die-cast aluminum bass plate. That bass plate also acts as the chassis for the 5040B's 40-watt amplifier and crossover circuitry. All-in-all, the system delivers a nice punch of 96dB maximum SPL.

Perfect for surround with 6 RCA inputs and 5 RCA outputs

If you are building a 5.1 surround system, the Genelec 5040B fits the bill. It's designed to pair perfectly with up to five powered monitors, and it complements Genelec's 6010BMMs quite well. The built-in crossover unit on the 5040B features six RCA input connectors for five main channels and one LFE channel, plus it features five RCA output connectors for the system's other speakers. You can make custom adjustments to input sensitivity and crossover phase. The main channels have a fixed highpass filter that's designed to work with Genelec's 6010 series monitors.

Included remote plus a handy 1/8" input for your other devices

You can control your entire 5.1 system with the remote included with the Genelec 5040B. The remote allows you to control volume as well as make versatile acoustic controls for perfect room integration. Another handy inclusion with the Genelec 5040B is its 1/8" input, that's ideal for conveniently connecting your portable audio player or routing your computer's system output to the sound system.

Protected by Genelec's ISS power management system

Thanks to Genelec's Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power management system, you never have to remember to shut down your 5040B monitors again. ISS constantly checks for input signal. After a while, if ISS doesn't detect anything, it switches your 5040B over to a low-power sleep state, safeguarding your gear and sparing you the wasted electricity.
