GENELEC 7050C Studio Subwoofer
Small Footprint. Huge Performance.
For those demanding a compact subwoofer that delivers extended low frequency performance, generous SPL and professional bass management features, the 7050C is the natural choice. As the newest and most advanced version of the ever-popular 7050 model, the 7050C is the perfect partner for any nearfield monitor, particularly Genelec’s own 8010, 8020, 8030 and M030 models.

Power With PrecisionWhat distinguishes the performance of Genelec’s subwoofers is their ability to generate very high sound pressure levels with minimum distortion, achieved through the unique Laminar Spiral Enclosure design. This LSE technology allows the 8-inch woofer of the 7050C - driven by a powerful Class D amplifier stage - to move enough volume of air to achieve a maximum SPL of 103 dB: an impressive 3 dB increase over its predecessor, but with total precision and clarity.
The 7050C LSE enclosure is made from a spiral-shaped strip of steel, providing maximal mechanical stability for the large pressures generated inside the subwoofer. The spiral forms the bass reflex port as well, enabling linear air flow even at the highest SPL outputs. This flow-optimized construction is what enables both low frequency capacity and low distortion performance – resulting in precise bass articulation right down to 24 Hz.
Superior Management SkillsThe onboard bass management section enables the 7050C to filter low frequency information from the main channels and take responsibility for handling it – thus increasing the headroom and reducing the distortion of your main monitors, which can then focus their energies on the rest of the frequency spectrum.
The bass management section of the 7050C features five input and output channels with 85 Hz low-pass/high-pass filters, plus a discrete 120 Hz LFE signal input with selectable +10 dB boost to restore the normal level of the LFE channel in the way that a typical AV processor would. These extra features bring the 7050C closely in line with Genelec’s other professional subwoofers and make it equally comfortable working in stereo or multichannel audio systems.
Your Flexible FriendThe 7050C also comes with a comprehensive set of rear panel DIP switches to allow you to optimise your system for your room, by adjusting subwoofer phase and low frequency roll-off, engaging the +10 dB LFE level, and also allowing you to activate and control the sensitivity of the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) power-saving mode, which reduces the unit’s power consumption down to a mere 0.5 W in standby mode.
Pioneering Technology: Made in FinlandSince its founding, Genelec design philosophy has been based on sustainable development and environmental values, aiming to deliver performance-driven, tonally neutral monitor and subwoofer systems for audio professionals. Conservation of natural resources and efficient use of materials and energy as well as long product lifetime are essential to us.
The Genelec 7050C subwoofer packs the most modern technology and the highest performance into an extremely compact package. All electronics, amplifier circuitry, drivers and enclosure are designed, assembled, tested and individually calibrated in the Genelec factory in Finland.
