Compact, 2-way active nearfield monitor, matte grey painted finish
As an active loudspeaker, it contains drivers, power amplifiers, active crossover filters and protection circuitry. The MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) loudspeaker enclosure is made of die-cast aluminium and shaped to reduce edge diffraction. Combined with the advanced Directivity Control Waveguide TM (DCWTM), this design provides excellent frequency balance in difficult acoustic environments. If necessary, the bass response of the 8020D can be extended with a Genelec subwoofer.
The small Genelec 8020D has been designed for monitoring in difficult listening environments, particularly those compromised by lack of space.
Each 8020D is supplied with an integrated amplifier unit, mains cable and an operating manual.

I recently moved my video post suite to a smaller room. My Neumanns were too large for the space and I needed something accurate that would work well in my room. After reading reviews and consulting some colleagues, I ended up with the 8020DPMs. They sound much bigger than their size would indicate, work very well in a less-than-perfect room (the 8020s have extensive room tuning options), and they image really really well.

I am using them in a near-field configuration and have not yet put any room treatments in place (this is the next step), They are already useful for editing, pulling quick pencil mixes, and helping with the assessment of 2.0 mixes from audio teams. I expect that they will improve with room treatments. I may add the 7040a sub in the future if I need more bass extension.
