1038B Studio Monitor

The Genelec 1038B was in production between 2004 and 2015. It was replaced by the 1238A model.

The 1038B excels in flush-mounted installations providing accurate and neutral sound imaging. The system includes drivers, enclosure, multiple power amplifiers, active low signal level crossovers, precise room response controls and protection circuitry. The 1038B active monitoring system features a surface optimized advanced Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) which provides outstanding frequency response on- and off-axis, as well as stable and neutral sound imaging in all acoustical environments.

The 1038B is perfectly suited for music recording studios, film and video post-production, mastering suites as well as broadcasting facilities.
