Genesis Advanced Technologies Customizable Genesis Fortè Speaker


  The Genesis Fortè is the latest model in a long legacy of 6-foot-tall line-source two-tower loudspeakers dating back to 1994 with the introduction of the Genesis II.5. Other illustrious models in this series included the Genesis 350SE (2000) and the Genesis 2.2 Junior (2011). The Genesis Fortè features a 48" ribbon midrange, a line-array of ribbon ring-radiator tweeters and two 12" servo-controlled solid aluminum-cone woofers per loudspeaker. In a departure from previous Genesis models, for the first time the Fortè will be available in virtually any finish and is fully customizable with various options. A custom-finish mid-specification model in fiddleback maple and high gloss black will be shown at CES 2016. Price on application.

While it looks outwardly similar to many of its predecessors, the Fortè incorporates all new design and technology. The cabinet is constructed out of a constrained-layer damped composite material to further reduce cabinet resonance. The crossover has been re-worked with the new Genesis 48" midrange driver. The servo-controlled 12" woofers ensure deep, accurate bass with improvements in the Dynamic Power Delivery System (DPDS). A revised crossover improves coherence between the midrange and the woofer. Careful selection of crossover frequencies ensure that the lobing common with many other line-source loudspeakers has been eliminated at the listening position.

"The Genesis Fortè is the ultimate loudspeaker for the family in a living room or even the great room," said Mr. Gary Leonard Koh, Genesis' CEO and Chief Designer. "It sounds good sitting down, it sounds good even when you are standing up, and the whole family can be enjoying the music at the same time. There is already quite an improvement when you go from a conventional cone/dynamic loudspeaker to a ribbon or planar-magnetic. But it can be really shocking when you go from a conventional loudspeaker to a ribbon line-source. The effortlessness of musical peaks, huge dynamic contrasts and the ability to resolve the tiniest musical details – that's what gives many listeners a sense of euphoria. It makes listening to music a visceral experience."
