Power and flexibility

Combining power and clarity with flexible calibration and bass management features, the 7382A is designed for use in recording studios, film mixing facilities, mastering suites, post-production houses, EDM playback and premium home theatres. With high SPL, low frequency cutoff and low distortion performance, the 7382A provides precise bass articulation even at the very lowest frequencies.

Totally optimised listening

As part of the growing Smart Active Monitoring family, the 7382A tightly integrates with GLM software, via which it can be configured, calibrated and controlled. GLM offers control of bass management, solves issues of subwoofer placement in unpredictable rooms, and even allows the creation of entire arrays of Genelec subwoofers where required. As part of a Genelec Smart Active system, the 7382A produces a totally optimised listening experience, delivering mixes that translate beautifully.

FAQ

The Classic 8000 Series monitors have an analogue input. The 7200 Series SAM subwoofers have AES/EBU digital outputs only. However, other 7300 Series SAM subwoofers have analogue inputs and outputs and can be used also with analogue monitors.

Which SAM™ Products You Are Going to Mix With the Classic 8000 Series?
Mixing 8000 Series and SAM™ monitors is not recommended

We do not recommend mixing Classic 8000 Series monitors with SAM™ Monitors.
If the analogue input sensitivity of 8000 Series and SAM™ Series monitors are the same, Genelec SAM™ Monitors exhibit a slightly larger latency (< 5 ms) than 8000 Series monitors. Therefore Classic 8000 Series and SAM™ Series monitors should not be mixed in a stereo pair or multichannel setup.

It is alright to mix Classic 8000 Series with SAM™ Subwoofers

However, it is okay to mix the Classic 8000 Series monitors with SAM™ Subwoofers. Any Classic 8000 Series monitors can be used with SAM™ Subwoofers, in any stereo or multichannel setup.

Setting the room response calibration controls

Genelec monitors are calibrated flat in anechoic free field conditions. When the monitor is placed in a room close to walls or other boundaries, the low frequency output of the monitor increases. To achieve a flat low frequency response an adjustment of typically -4 dB on the bass tilt control is used. Genelec also provides a bass roll-off control to compensate for any remaining excessive LF energy around the low cut-off frequency.
Genelec GLM AutoCal can implement a more precise compensation after measuring the acoustic effects produced by the monitor’s installation location.

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.

In three-way monitors and large main 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 the monitors can be placed in many different listening environments, whilst still achieving a consistent and neutral sound reproduction.

The best way to set the room response controls of a Genelec monitor is by taking an acoustical measurement at the listening location, using a measurement system for those products that offer local controls (DIP switches) on the monitor or subwoofer, or by using GLM AutoCal for the SAM™ (Smart Active Monitoring) products.
