Iisalmi Finland: Genelec have been busy over the winter and have launched two new home theatre products, the HTS3B and HTS4B subwoofers.
The announcement was made by Karen Richardson, National Sales Manager for Home Theater products, Genelec Inc.. She comments "With the HTS3B and 4B, Genelec once again raises the performance bar for all subwoofers. The new compact cube has powerful bass down to 18 Hz and provides true movie theatre excitement."
The 6040A is now available in a Silver Metallic finish. The 6040ASM now better compliments the color of other audio system components such as televisions, plasma screens and surround sound processors. The Silver Metallic look is the standard color from August 2003. 6040A is an active loudspeaker with two 120W amplifiers mounted in the foot, one for each driver. Total height of the speaker is 1 meter. All other technical specifications and sound quality are unchanged.
Genelec HTS6 is a powerful active subwoofer designed specially for high quality digital 5.1 channel Home Theater systems. Its 19 to 120 Hz (±3 dB) frequency range and 124 dB sound pressure output capability are sufficient to handle the most demanding high SPL applications.
