1238CF SAM™ Studio Monitor

Designed for use with a complimentary subwoofer, the 1238CF offers a big performance in compact dimensions with an integrated rear-panel amplifier.

Recalling the popularity of the 1038CF but with the addition of the most advanced and adaptable monitoring technology available, the 1238CF has rapidly established itself as a worthy successor to its forebear.

The 1238CF boasts an integrated rear-panel amplifier and is intended to be used with an accompanying, complimentary subwoofer. Inside the sturdy, flush-mountable enclosure are double 8 inch woofers plus a 5 inch midrange driver and 1 inch metal dome tweeter, while the same large Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) of the 1038CF delivers the directivity of a much larger enclosure. The power of Smart Active Monitoring (SAM™) then opens a new suite of features. Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) 2.0 software allows for the fine adjustment of up to 30 individual Smart monitors and Smart subwoofers to facilitate any multi-channel audio set-up, while AutoCal™ compensates for detrimental room influences and perfectly calibrates your set-up for your listening environment.

Ideal for recording studios, film and video post-production facilities, broadcasters and mastering suites, the 1238CF is the ideal blend of contemporary technology and classic design.
