The 8030C active studio monitor, introduced in 2017, even delivers 4 dB higher SPL and has a lower energy consumption than earlier models of 8030
Combine power with precision to meet the most demanding requirements, all with Genelec's renowned accuracy and reliability.
As strikingly stylish as it is sonically impressive, the 8030C features the rounded edges and colour-free, accurate reproduction of the rigid all-aluminium Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE). Every element of the design is crafted to perfect your listening experience. Precise on- and off-axis frequency reproduction is courtesy of the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW). Broad low-frequencies and high SPLs are delivered with a flow-optimised internal curved reflex tube and a maximised internal volume. And when you're finished, Genelec Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) circuitry detects when your system is no longer in use, placing it into an environmentally friendly, power-saving standby mode.
From professional studios to outside broadcast vehicles, the 8030C has been crafted to combine extraordinary power with absolute precision.

Accurate, stylish, and affordable
These are great monitors. I work full time in the sound department on film sets and bought these for post production in my home studio. The speakers present a very natural sounding reproduction of the material we record on set. I find genelecs sound extremely pleasing and satisfying in their frequency response across the spectrum.

Some settings allow for tailored bass and treble response to match your room acoustics which helps a fair bit, and they look great which is a bonus. I wish I could have waited for the white ones but the grey is perfectly fine. The sales experience was effortless and shipping was as quick as could be expected. These aren't cheap per se but resale prices means if you do sell them some day you'll recoup a lot of value versus other cheaper options.
