Massachusetts-based manufacturer Genelec is known for its active, or powered, loudspeakers that can deliver a good home theater wallop.
The company’s new G Two Active Loudspeaker models might not be grand in size, but they can surely pack a punch from their compact dimensions.
Available in black or white, the G Two features a four-inch woofer and 3/4-inch tweeter, placing it relatively in the middle of Genelec’s G Series lineup that includes the slightly smaller woofers in its G One (three inch) and slightly larger woofers in its G Three (five inch) and G Four (six inch) models also containing 3/4-inch tweeters.
Genelec says for bigger thump you can add its F Series active subwoofers that complement the G Series products.
The G Two models stray from your typical bookshelf speaker design in their curvy cabinet structure that was a product of the company’s engineers teaming with award-winning designer Harri Koskinen.
Genelec says the design not only provides striking looks, but aids the speaker’s acoustical properties by reducing the acoustic reflections sometimes caused by sharp edges on a speaker. The company says this, combined with its Directivity Control Waveguide, enables the G Two to deliver a smooth frequency response both on and off axis.
Frequency response for the 8.1-pound speaker is rated between 65 to 21000 Hz. Contact the company for pricing.
