Genelec Home Audio Unveils G Five Active Loudspeaker

Despite its relatively small size, the G Five brings out a level of performance comparable to much larger loudspeakers.

NATICK, MA, November 4, 2014 - Genelec Home Audio is unveiling its new G Five Active Loudspeaker, the flagship model in the Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers for home audio. Despite its relatively small size, the G Five brings out a level of performance comparable to much larger loudspeakers. Its bass reproduction goes lower than what most subwoofers can do, providing at the same time extremely high sound pressure with very low distortion. Thanks to its large waveguide, the Genelec G Five reproduces all the nuances and dynamics of the audio material with incomparable fidelity. As featured in all Genelec G Series, the G Five provides acoustical response adjustments to allow correct setup and acoustical calibration to the room it is placed in. The G Five can even be placed in an acoustically challenging room and provide an amazing listening experience.


The G Five (Woofer 8" + Tweeter 1") joins four 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") and G Four (Woofer 6.5" + Tweeter 3/4"); as well as the complementary F One (6.5" active) and F Two (8" active) subwoofers. The G Five 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 Five 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.
