NATICK, MA, March 28, 2011 — Genelec, the world’s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring, offers its new BroadcastPak. Composed of five 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitors and a 7050B Active Subwoofer, the BroadcastPak offers a space-saving 5.1 monitoring solution, ideal for multi-channel editing rooms, mobile recording trucks and other mixing environments where space may be at a premium.

Genelec’s successful PowerPak, featuring 8030A Monitors and a 7060B Sub, has enjoyed tremendous popularity among many different mixing markets. User feedback indicated that a similar solution with a smaller footprint might appeal to a different set of mixers, most notably the broadcast market, so the 7060B was replaced with a 7050B (which is significantly smaller) for the BroadcastPak.
