Genelec Adds HTS3B and HTS4B Subwoofers to its Renowned Line of Home Theater Sound Systems


CEDIA EXPO, INDIANAPOLIS, IN, September 10, 2004 — Genelec, Inc., U.S. distributor of Genelec Home Theater Sound Systems, has expanded its line of home theater products with the addition of the new HTS3B and HTS4B Active Home Theater Subwoofers. The HTS3B is suitable for use with Genelec’s HT205 or HT206 Two-Way Bi-Amplified Active Loudspeakers, while the HTS4B is designed for use with the HT208 or HT210 Two-Way Bi-Amplified Active Loudspeakers. The announcement was made by Karen Richardson, National Sales Manager for Genelec Home Theater Products, and further underscores Genelec’s ongoing commitment to delivering superior monitoring solutions to the high-end Home Theater and Consumer Audio market sectors.

The Genelec HTS3B and HTS4B are powerful low frequency subwoofers created specifically for high quality digital multi-channel home theater systems. The HTS3B is equipped with one active magnetically shielded 10″ driver, mounted on the front side of a compact cabinet, and two 10″ passive radiators, one on each side of the cabinet. The HTS3B features a frequency response of 18 Hz to 120 Hz, and has a maximum SPL of 114 dB. The 200W amplifier unit is integrated into the HTS3B subwoofer cabinet, which measures a compact 17″ x 14.5″ x 15.75″.

The HTS4B shares the same design principles as the HTS3B but is equipped with a 12″ driver and radiators, along with a 400W amplifier unit integrated into the subwoofer. Additionally, the HTS4B has a frequency response of 18 Hz to 120 Hz, a maximum SPL of 118 dB, and measures a compact 20.25″ x 18.25″ x 18.25″.

Both the HTS3B and HTS4B have XLR and RCA line level input connectors (with input sensitivity) providing easy connection to all types of decoders, as well as a Link Out connector, which allows coupling two or more subwoofers together when higher sound pressure levels are required. Bass roll-off rate and crossover phase can be adjusted to suit different acoustic environments and subwoofer positioning.

The amplifier is equipped with an Autostart function for automatic switching between Standby and On modes. Connectors for remote power On/Standby switches are also provided.

Commenting on the new subwoofers, Karen Richardson remarked, “With the launch of our HTS3B and HTS4B models, Genelec once again raises the performance bar for all subwoofers. The new compact cubes have powerful bass down to 18 Hz and provide true cinema excitement in the home theater environment. We invite consumers to share in the benefits of our uncompromising audio standards, and we’re confident our audience will clearly hear the difference in Genelec Active Monitoring.”

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology, is celebrating 25 years of designing and manufacturing active monitoring loudspeakers for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting the concept of active transducer technology, which many manufacturers are just now incorporating into their products. Since its inception in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an active Home Theater speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate imaging, extremely high acoustic output from a very small enclosure, and true high-fidelity with low distortion and deep, rich bass.
