Often there is some remaining interaction between the room and the monitor so GENELEC also provides a bass roll-off control to compensate for excessive LF energy around the low cut-off frequency.
Differences in room reverberation time and listening distance can lead to changes being required in the treble region so treble tilt is fitted to most of the models in the GENELEC range.
On the three-way monitors and large systems there are additional driver controls for the bass level, mid level and treble level which enable very fine adjustment of the frequency response so that monitors can be placed in many different listening environments whilst still achieving a consistent and neutral sound reproduction.
The best way to set the tones controls of a GENELEC monitor is by measurement using a system such as WinMLS or MLSSA. Unfortunately, this is unavailable to most users so the Quick Set-up Guide supplied with the monitor gives a good starting point that will give satisfactory results in most typical situations. GENELEC and its Distributor network offer a free calibration service where a Genelec Product Specialist will come to your studio and measure the monitors on site. Consult your dealer or country distributor for details of availability as this service only applies to the larger monitors in the range.
