A compact monitor with excellent directivity and accurate sonic imaging.
The very compact 8030A is a powerful bi-amplified nearfield monitor system ideal for project and home studios, workstations, installations, and surround sound monitoring. The MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) enclosure has rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.
Like all Genelec 8000 Series monitors, the 8030A also features the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW), a revolutionary flow-optimized reflex port design, optimized die-cast aluminium structure with extremely durable semi-matt finish and acoustically optimized metal grilles. Low distortion drivers are driven by dedicated amplifiers after sophisticated filtering. Magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls are standard. The versatile mounting features include integrated rear support points for wall and floor stands plus a further 3/8" thread for mounting on the cabinet base.
Every Genelec 8030A monitor comes with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler) as standard. The Iso-Pod is a clever mounting stand, which allows the system to perform in either the vertical or horizontal position. It also enables the acoustic axis of the monitor to be aimed at the listener, while acoustically and mechanically decoupling the monitor from the surface it is resting on.

Comments about Genelec 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitor System:
These monitors are incredible. I used 1031s back in the day and I thought they were excellent,too. These speakers do not fatigue you ears. They are not the "prettiest" sounding, but that`s not what you want in a recording environment. You want them to be truthful. After my last monitors went the way of the dodo, I bought these. Wish I had done that years ago. I heard things on projects I had recorded I did not hear on my Haflers (TRM 8).
The only monitor I`ve worked with that was better than the 1031s was a Klein and Hummel. But they are outrageously expensive.
