The Genelec 8040BPM Bi-Amplified Monitoring System Boasts performance comparable to much larger systems, but in a compact package, the bi-amplified 8040BPM is ideal for use in many situations where a wide frequency response is needed but space is limited. Uses include nearfield monitoring, project/home studios, workstations, broadcast and TV control rooms and mobile production vehicles.
The ingenious, flow optimized, reflex port achieves clear deep bass articulation with no compression or port noises. Combined with the advanced Genelec Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) and the rounded edges and gently curved front and sides of the MDE (Minimum Diffraction Enclosure) enclosure, the result is an astoundingly wide, flat frequency response both on and off axis. Other benefits include superb imaging qualities and less listening fatigue.
Carefully designed crossover filters with steep roll-off feed dedicated amplifiers for each of the low distortion drivers. The 8040BPM includes magnetic shielding, overload protection circuitry and versatile room response controls as standard.
Each 8040BPM comes with an Iso-Pod (Isolation Positioner/Decoupler), which eliminates coloration of the sound by decoupling the monitor from its mounting surface. The Iso-Pod also allows the speaker to be angled so that its acoustic axis points directly at the listener. For ideal mounting in differing environments, the 8040BPM includes integrated rear support points for floor and wall stands, with an additional M10 threaded mounting hole on the enclosure base.

Comments about Genelec 8040B Bi-Amplified Monitor System (Each):
I DJ at home and bought these just by reviews as the two Guitar Centers only had $250.00 speakers or less for display. I don't use them for parties, just to insure my mixes blend well. I find myself turning up the volume and the speakers having a panic attack and cutting the volume down, imo the volume wasn't that loud.
I would have bought Event Opals as I know these speakers but they seem to have manufacturer issues right now.
Depending on the volume you want, that is your choice here. If they were louder I would keep them.
