The Genelec 8040B has an MDE™ (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™) enclosure with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.

Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8040B also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™), a revolutionary flow-optimized reflex port design, optimized die-cast aluminum structure with extremely durable semi-matt finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles.

Low distortion drivers are driven by dedicated amplifiers after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls are standard. Versatile mounting features include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands.

The 8040B features a 6.5-inch bass driver along with a 3/4-inch tweeter loaded into the advanced Genelec Directivity Waveguide. The free field frequency response is 48 Hz to 20 kHz (± 2.0 dB). The system is capable of delivering sound pressure levels of up to 115 dB maximum peak acoustic output per pair (measured with music audio), at a distance of 1 meter. Bass and treble are each powered by 90-Watt amplifiers.

If very large sound levels and a low cutoff frequency are required it can be complemented in stereo applications with the 7060B subwoofer and in surround applications with the 7070A subwoofer.

  • Maximum peak per pair with music material @ 1m:  ≥ 115 dB SPL
  • Free field frequency response: 48 Hz - 20 kHz (± 2.0 dB)
  • Drivers: 6.5" Woofer, 3/4" Tweeter

I Need a Set!


While I do not personally own these, I have worked with them somewhat extensively. While attending a master's program in composition, I had the privilege to use a wide range of Genelec speakers. They are the absolute crystal clearest, high quality monitors I have ever and possibly will ever hear. The craftsmanship and sound quality are supreme. If you ever have the opportunity, give the 8040BPM's a listen and be prepared to be disappointed by every other monitor you will hear that is not a Genelec.
