Genelec G Three Active Loudspeaker Launched
Genelec Home Audio offers its new G Three Active Loudspeaker, part of the new Genelec G Series of Active Loudspeakers for home audio. Offering an exceptional home audio solution, the G Three (Woofer 5″ + Tweeter 3/4″) joins three other models in the series: G One (Woofer 3″ + Tweeter 3/4″), G Two (Woofer 4″ + Tweeter 3/4″) and G Four (Woofer 6.5″ + Tweeter 3/4″); as well as the complementary F One (6″ active) and F Two (8″ active) subwoofers (the G Series and F Series models are designed to be used together or separately). The G Three and its brethren feature elegant industrial design by award-winning designer Harri Koskinen and Genelec’s R&D team.
The G Three 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.
