1038CF Studio Monitor

The Genelec 1038CF was in production between 2009 and 2015. It was replaced by the 1238CF model.

Typically installed as a flush-mounted system, the compact 1038CF is designed to be complemented with a subwoofer in either stereo or multichannel applications. Its unique Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW ™) technology provides excellent on- and off-axis imaging and frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments. The system includes drivers, enclosure, multiple power amplifiers, active low signal level crossovers, precise room response controls and protection circuitry.
The 1038CF is ideal for music recording studios, large composing studios, film and video post-production and broadcast monitoring.
