SAM™ Coaxial Studio Monitors

As beautiful as they are innovative, Genelec’s SAM Coaxial Series monitors are bringing all the benefits of SAM to the next generation of monitoring technology.

How do you improve upon a system as intelligent as Smart Active Monitoring (SAM™)? For Genelec, the answer is its Coaxial Smart monitors – a bold reinvention of how monitoring itself is done, with radical results.

Appealing to both the eye and the ear, Coaxial Smart monitors represent the elimination of the compromises found in typical coaxial arrangements. The Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) driver delivers a precise, diffraction-free frequency response, while the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) ensures controlled directivity both on and off-axis over a startlingly wide bandwidth.

Added to this is the power of SAM. The Coaxial Smart monitors are controlled using the proprietary Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) 2.0 software and network manager. As with all SAM systems, ground-breaking AutoCal™ is used to create an optimised and controlled monitoring environment. After automatic calibration, monitoring set-ups ranging from simple stereo to immersive audio will perform with the consistency upon which you rely, compensating for deficiencies in the listening environment.

The unique Genelec 8351 also features dual Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW™) which contribute to create an acoustically coaxial three-way system featuring an extremely large waveguide across the entire front baffle. The 8351 breaks new ground with precise directivity control in both vertical and horizontal orientations.
