Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDE™) Technology
In order to improve the flatness of the frequency response and the power response, Genelec have designed a highly innovative enclosure optimized to match the properties of the loudspeaker drivers, featuring rounded edges, and gently curved front and sides. In addition to achieving an unsurpassed flatness of the frequency response, the enclosure having minimum diffractions yields superb sound stage imaging qualities. To learn more, see our MDE Animation.
Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) Technology
Genelec’s revolutionary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology first developed in early 80’s can greatly improve the performance of a direct- radiating multi-way loudspeaker. The DCW™ waveguide is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the drivers in the loudspeaker. This results in an excellent flatness of the overall frequency response for on and off-axis listening positions.
Reflex Port Design
To increase the woofer's low frequency extension and SPL capacity, Genelec have designed an ingenious flow optimized reflex port. The long, curved tube maximizes airflow so deep bass can be reproduced without compression. The tube terminates with a wide flare, minimizing port noises and providing excellent bass articulation.
