Genelec Home Audio Unveils G Four Active Loudspeaker
NATICK, MA, October 29, 2013 - Genelec Home Audio is unveiling its new G Four Active Loudspeaker, part of the new Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers for home audio. The G Four (Woofer 6.5" + Tweeter 3/4") joins three other models in the G Series: G One (Woofer 3" + Tweeter 3/4"), G Two (Woofer 4" + Tweeter 3/4") and G Three (Woofer 5" + Tweeter 3/4"); as well as the complementary F One (6" active) and F Two (8" active) subwoofers. The G Four and its brethren feature elegant industrial design by award-winning designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec's R&D team. Designed to be used together or separately, G Series models and the complementary F Series subwoofers offer an exceptional home audio solution.
The G Four active two-way loudspeaker combines an organic, rounded form with powerful and precise sound reproduction. The gently curving design is not chosen for good looks alone. Sharp edges or corners on a loudspeaker enclosure cause acoustic reflections that interfere with the direct sound. This harmful interference - diffraction - is dramatically reduced by the smooth, curved design of the G Series, audible in the excellent resolution and solid sound imaging of the products. Blending seamlessly to the enclosure shape, the proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) formed around the high-frequency driver is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the two drivers. This results in a smooth frequency response on- and off-axis and controlled directivity maximizing the direct sound aimed to the listening area.
