Stunning looks and a crystal-clear sound

The 8020 DPM, developed by the distinguished loudspeaker manufacturer Genelec, is an active nearfield studio monitor that offers a top-quality and reliable reference sound for all audio applications. This model is the flagship of the Finnish company’s product range and combines high-calibre acoustic properties with an equally attractive design. The 8020’s uniquely even frequency response and excellent spatial representation are partly achieved thanks to its highly innovative die-cast aluminium cabinet with rounded edges and slightly curved front and side surfaces. The design was created in collaboration with Finland’s Harri Koskinen, one of Europe’s best-known product and furniture designers.

A sophisticated design for enhanced performance

In contrast with passive monitors, the speakers of the 8020 are driven by built-in amplifiers, with no filtering components in between. The advantage of this design is that the drivers can be specifically tailored to the characteristics of the monitor chassis. The 8020’s large interior volume gives it an enhanced bass response, while the shape of the aluminium housing suppresses unwanted wall resonance and the special housing contours ensure the correct wave guidance for controlled sound diffusion. The surprisingly even frequency response is achieved here by maximising the surface area, and the flow-oriented bass reflex channel serves to increase the sound pressure reserves and extend the transmission range.

For a wide range of applications

No matter what environment the 8020 finds itself in, the switchable filters on the rear panel of the speaker will optimise its audio performance to best suit the location. Both drivers are magnetically shielded, a characteristic shared by all Genelec monitors, and even when driven at high volumes they cause little to no distortion. The included rubber iso pad provides a secure anti-resonant support, thus making unwanted colouring of the sound by the transmission of vibrations a thing of the past. Furthermore, this base also allows exact positioning of the speaker. A wall bracket is additionally included, which can be used to mount the speaker at the desired height.

About Genelec

Genelec was founded in 1976 by Ilpo Martikainen. It grew from a family business into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional studio and broadcasting loudspeakers. To this day, Genelec’s loudspeakers are manufactured exclusively in Finland. Genelec offers performance-oriented, neutral-sounding loudspeakers and subwoofer systems for audio professionals and sound enthusiasts, and a combination of innovative technology and design ensure that the range of products is continuously improving. The company is committed to sustainable development and environmental awareness. In 2018, Genelec was awarded the Pro Sound "Company of the Year" award. Genelec speakers are favourites of such recording industry veterans as Obie O'Brien, Michael Carnes, and David Reitzas, as well as of producers like Hardwell, Keith Ross, and Vini Vici.

An excellent sound in any configuration

No matter what the setup – whether traditional stereo, surround sound, or even 3D audio – Genelec products will always feature among the best monitoring choices thanks to their precise dispersion, reliable sound, and versatile mounting options. An impressive surround sound configuration can be created by combining five 8020s with a suitable subwoofer like the Genelec 7040 APM. The two front speakers should be placed at 30° angles to the listener here, with the centre speaker placed directly in front of him/her, while the rear surround speakers should be rotated at a 110° angle and placed at roughly one metre from the listening position. For a classic “stereo triangle”, the two monitors should be placed at a 60° angle to the listener. For a 3D audio configuration, a second layer of monitors transmitting down from the ceiling is required. This type of setup requires a minimum of four speakers.

Amazing sound for the size
OKNA 06.12.2018
Took 10 days for the package to arrive from one side of Europe to the other side from order to receiving goods, gear was packed ultra carefully and everything was OK.

At first tried them on the desk in default mode using Focusrite Scarlett, sound was good but because of zero acoustic treatment you couldn't "feel" them in room. Loads of vibrations were running around on higher volumes (can't imagine how bad it would be with a speaker without ISO-pod) It all changed 101% when they got mounted on Genelec Z8000-409B floor stands without any hassle.

Sound turned to amazing because monitors got raised to ear level and the vibrations also disappeared (slightly loosy radiator for example). The bass got more punchy and the lower HZ also became to live. I was immediately fascinated by the speaker size and the sound output it can deliver. Highs and mids are perfectly balanced with just enough of bass. Really good monitors to listen for example to ambient or music thats not 100% oriented around bass. Nonetheless no problems with outputting some wicked drum&bass tunes.

Keep in mind these speakers are for smaller rooms and if you need lots of low end you should buy bigger monitors or add a 7040A subwoofer, which fits perfectly with Genelec 8010-8020 models.

If I ever need any more gear then Thomann is the way to go ;)

Class A+ speaker, w 7050B sub it's all another story
sem92 07.04.2018
These Speaker are quite flat after all. I've measured within Smaart, not that bad for beeing such a small cabinet. I've actually had to turn the volume pot at -6dB because the audio interface will saturate the amplifier otherwise. I've using this with a 7050B subwoofer, so as a 2.1 system this is spectacular. The 7050B is only add the octave below, but it's in phase with the system tops, and really can be fisically felt, it' a bigger and substantial difference between a bigger ( such as a 8" or 7") studio monitor. For better results I've done a calibration with reference 4 to have the flattest frequency and phase response. If u had a small space desk i suggest go to these kind of solution instead bigger systems, you have better control of the power and the sound definition than bigger monitors one.
Really good, for a 1.5k price is flowless experience

Let's be honest.

Low frequency below 150 Hz?
It does, but it's not perfect.
It's clumped together, and it's blurry somewhere.

A "physically small woofer" is the reason.
But "Physical Little Woofer" expresses a clear mid-frequency that big monsters can't.
(You don't have to tell me about the perfection of Genelec's high frequency, do you?)

If your studio acoustic isn't perfect, choose this product, and make up for the weaknesses of low frequency with headphones.
This friend will serve properly.

I'm sure it's a great product not only for video work but also for entertainment.

Best mobile monitors

I have had two pairs of these over the years and have always been impressed with their sound quality. The built in EQ is great for using in varying situations, helping keep the response neutral. Add to that the cast aluminum enclosure and the grills and you have a real durable speaker that travels well. The only real competitor I have found is the smaller Neumann KH speakers. Having owned the 120's for years, I do love those speakers, but these sound just as good (at reasonable levels) and fit better in a pelican case than either the KH120 or the smaller KH80. I can get a pair of these, a DAC, and a laptop in a Pelican case sized for airline carry on.
