Genelec 1029A
very good product, which dates already for several years but reliable and sonority very neutral and good quality, metal formwork which supports many scratches, very good rating on the second-hand market in spite of its age, up to 400 euros pair next state, and do not discount


yes no problem


model dating from + / - 10 years
ideal for a return to the console or post video production

zgroor's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very satisfied"

Genelec 1029A
The compactness, robustness, and very favorable reviews in the specialist press for sound.

In use, I'm not disappointed at all, the volume is comfortable and precision and largely up to my use.


I want to meet 4 times yes, keeping in mind the size of the speakers necessarily influences the bass.


Auf, it hurts to realize the answer soon ... 10 years!

I tried and I retained Diva16 I occasionally used NS10.

I really like the "armored" and precise both side.

Frankly, I had an opportunity like we never met, I dreamed about it, and offered me. I would do this choice without hesitation.

inch 9 3 / 4 x 5 15/16 x 7 1 / 2 "

Speaker weight 6 kg (13.2 lbs)


Perfect small chamber used in lots of situations: mobile studio, control, radio broadcasting, video editing, audio and of course, etc.
A bit too sharp for my taste, but very clear.

Great with a subwoofer.

Excellent for mounting a 5.1 system not too expensive and top quality!


Compact, efficient, lightweight (only 6kg/pc, even if they seem very solid when the door for the first time ...), and XLR jack handy, good sound.
Really a nice compromise for the home studio. All for a price almost ridiculous (and it is still of Genelec).

The 1029a has a trs RAPORT good quality price.
I work for small home studio mix.


Coubre frequency drives is good in the enssemble.
sound and good, the dynamics are at the top.


I use them for two years.
low its hard to mix if the IEEP or local do not insulate

frizouille44's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Genelec 1029A
I fell for the brand to rename their mouths and their frequency response very precise, it is clear the spectrum is not abusing it sounds like it is drawn but the double edge is cut in net income to 70Hz


Huge dynamic really accurate, the kicks have plenty of fishing, but not serious so the box is essential.
The stereo is good provided they are well placed must adjust their height if it pourrave.
Their answer is faithful ... 7050 with the box! is misleading without my mix was full of bass that I heard no I had to juggle multiple system to be fair she did so for naught.
BUT WITH BOX burst up SERIOUS !!!!!
To get watts must mix in small square pieces style 16m max, otherwise it lacks power.


I'm right about these speakers by buying them at a good price abroad, but I admit that without the box I was disappointed because the mix but was grave;
I highly recommend for home recording with the box is more than enough.
A purchase is very safe as pro gear ... GENELEC live!
Good mix to you!

Use in home studio
of Genelec an affordable price for everyone sir!
discrtes, despite their small size is impressive weight.
steel box and not wood.


Curve frequency drives raliste 1029 if the couple with the subwoofer of the same brand.
but it becomes useful if more than 3 m s'loigne speaker otherwise make 1029 a good job trs.
clear, prcis.


Use for a year.
I use them in parallle with YAMAHA NS 10M.
trs good value quality price for GENELEC, h yes Genelec of this award ...

Genelec 1029A
I would first prciser I do not what possde MODEL monitoring. Personally, I have some old Celestion that work wonderfully in spite of their great age (20 years easy).
on the other hand, l or I can give my opinion, from my exprience as a service technician at SCV AUDIO (Genelec importer in France). I was fortunate to have a lot of MODELS in the hands and especially to the ears even if an electronic workshop is frankly not the place to rev MUCH prcise.


The rponse particulirement Fidler is almost everywhere ... (Confirmed by measurements)
Indeed, and as a dj prcis someone before me, the 1029 lacks bass, but then cruelly.
Paralllement, the volume that you can DGIG not always live up to what one would expect from monitor speakers.


Personally, I rather see the 1029 as multimedia speakers (we buy with a PC) improving.
Those who really want to sound turning instead to the 1030 sincrement more respectable.
If in addition we Whereas the price ... (I prfre not continue).

One last tip: Do not remove if you do not have the exprience, their installation is very treacherous and hoods (especially rear) in alluvial fresh mass are expensive.
