GENELEC M040 Studio Monitor
GENELEC M040 Studio Monitor is a compact, two way active monitoring loudspeaker with a 6.5″ woofer and a 1″ tweeter designed for near field monitoring. The Natural Composite Enclosure™ and the ISS, which greatly reduces power consumption, make the M Series some of the most sustainable loudspeakers ever made.
The Genelec M Series:
Active Two-Way Stereo Monitors for Music Creation
Natural Composite Enclosure™
Our pioneering Natural Composite Enclosure (NCE™) is made from a fully recyclable fibre composite material. Half of this is wood, which has the right acoustical properties to reduce vibrations and deliver exceptional sound quality. Plus the enclosure is manufactured using injection moulding. This allows us to optimize the shape and structural rigidity for high-quality acoustical performance. And we can also maximize the internal volume, something that’s vital for achieving high output at low frequencies.
Intelligent Signal Sensing
Our Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS) feature reduces power consumption to less than 0.5 watts by automatically switching the active monitor to standby when no audio signal has been detected for some time. When it receives an audio signal again, the loudspeaker turns back on. ISS is fully compliant with the latest EU requirements and the ErP 2013 Directive for electronic devices.

Class D Amplifier
The need to improve energy efficiency has led to the development of switch-mode operated amplifiers in many areas. Gradually this technology has matured also for demanding audio power amplifiers and at Genelec we have chosen to design our own Class D amplifier technology. The M series utilizes these high efficiency, low distortion amplifiers in both channels.
