Outstanding Performance and Subtle Styling Combine with Genelec’s AIW26B Active In-Wall Loudspeaker System

Genelec is delighted to announce the launch of its latest in-wall loudspeaker system, the AIW26B, which provides unmatched high sound level, low distortion and neutral sound reproduction.

Genelec is delighted to announce the launch of its latest in-wall loudspeaker system, the AIW26B, which provides unmatched high sound level, low distortion and neutral sound reproduction. This update of the hugely popular AIW26 features a new frameless enclosure grille, ensuring the loudspeaker can elegantly blend into almost any environment. Its precision design provides superior bass reproduction as well as precise mid and high frequencies imaging for state-of-the art audio installations.


"The AIW26B is a continuation of the fantastic work that we have done with our active in-wall loudspeaker systems," says Sami Mäkinen, AV Installation Systems Business Manager at Genelec. "This hugely impressive system has a wide variety of applications, and would be ideal for installation in a home theatre, a restaurant, art gallery, or a variety of commercial applications. With its frameless design, the new enclosure grille is able to blend into any environment by neatly concealing the cabinet. As with all Genelec products, a key feature is its precise, neutral acoustic response, which is what people come to expect from us."

The AIW26B consists of a bass reflex two-way loudspeaker enclosure and a matched remote amplifier module RAM1. The precisely engineered enclosure features a 6.5 inch woofer and a ¾ inch tweeter mounted in Genelec's proprietary Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™). The DCW™ provides an extremely stable and precise sound image throughout a larger listening area than what can be achieved with conventional loudspeakers. This improved directivity control also results in more direct (and less reflected) sound reaching the listener, which produces a more realistic and stable image.
The supplied RAM1 amplifier is designed to be a perfect complement to the AIW26B loudspeaker. As with all Genelec products, the RAM1 includes a series of Room Response Controls to fine tune the loudspeaker's acoustic performance to any given environment.

In addition to its unparalleled performance, the AIW26B is simple to install, and can be used in even the most demanding of applications, such as the main L-C-R array of a home theatre system, critical stereo listening or rear/side channels of a large, state of the art home theatre. The fine mesh enclosure grille can be painted in order to match the wall colour and interior design of any room. The loudspeaker fits into a standard 2 x 4" wall structure and can easily be retrofitted to existing constructions. The RAM1 amplifier module can be rack mounted with its dedicated RM1 Rack Mount Kit (optional) or placed on a shelf or into a cabinet.
