4430 Two-Way Active Installation Loudspeaker
Providing network functionality to facilitate its integration into digital audio systems, Genelec has launched its 4430 Two-Way Active Installation Loudspeaker.
Genelec says the 4430 is its first product to incorporate its Smart IP technology. Through this technology the company says integrators can streamline audio system installations through the use of a single category cable.
The 4430 accepts Dante and AES67 IP network signals, and it is powered via the Power over Ethernet (PoE) and PoE+ formats.
Internally, the speaker incorporates a pair 50-watt Class D amplifiers that power a 5-inch woofer and 3/4-inch metal-dome tweeter. Genelec says the 4430 produces SPL levels as high as 104dB. Integrators can configure the speaker using Genelec’s Windows 10-based Smart IP Manager software.
Genelec also points out the 4430 Two-Way Active Installation Loudspeaker supports as many as eight audio channels within a single stream; sample rates up to 24-bit/96kHz, and it delivers a frequency response of 45Hz to 23kHz.
