Genelec Midfield Monitors

Genelec Tri-Amplified Monitoring Systems are compact active monitors with performance equal to much larger systems. They contain active electronic crossovers, overload protection circuitry and power amplifiers. Such active design concept eliminates component tolerances and ensures consistent audio quality. Versatile room response controls allow precise repeatable response in the final installation.

The new 8260A DSP three-way system represents Genelec’s cutting-edge innovations in all technology domains. The MDC™ coaxial MF/HF breakthrough solution combines, for the first time, a coaxial driver within Genelec DCW™ waveguide. The resonance-free die-cast aluminum enclosure allows for improved low frequency efficiency and cut-off. The advanced electronics feature AutoCal™, Genelec’s proprietary automated room calibration system, part of GLM software. The unique 8260A is capable of outstanding and consistent performance in very challenging acoustic conditions.

The 1038CF and 1238CF are optimized for applications where a subwoofer is used. Their very compact cabinets are easy to place and the full-size DCW maintains consistent directivity even in medium sized control rooms. The 1038CF is equipped with an analogue crossover unit, while the 1238CF has similar advanced DSP unit as the 8260A.

The 1037C and the 1038B are magnetically shielded three-way monitoring systems for moderate sized control rooms. Due to their broad bandwidth and high output, they are ideal for music recording, surround sound monitoring, DVD mastering, broadcasting studios, editing suites and drama studios. Although designed to be used free standing, they perform even better when flush mounted.

The 1038BC is a magnetically shielded compact center channel version of the 1038B monitor delivered with a separate rack-mounted amplifier unit as standard. It is designed to be used with a pair of 1038B’s in three channel (LCR) set-up and in surround systems where space near the video monitor or screen is limited. The 1038BC can also be oriented vertically for installations where horizontal space is limited.

Genelec's unique Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology provides excellent sound stage imaging and frequency balance. These systems can be used in vertical and horizontal orientations by rotating the DCW waveguide unit.
