NAB 2010: Genelec 1038CF Tri-Amplified Active Monitoring System

The 1038CF tri-amplified active monitoring system features loudspeaker drivers, slim speaker enclosure (9.25 inches), dual 8-inch long-throw bass drivers, multiple power amplifiers and active low-level crossovers. Designed for medium-sized control rooms, this system is geared for music recording studios, project studios, film and video post-production and broadcast monitoring.

The 1038CF features a bass response down to 55 Hz, as the focus is on mid/high-directivity characteristics. The system can optionally be used with a subwoofer in either stereo or multichannel applications. The 1038CF’s compact, sealed enclosure measures a mere 24.02x18.5x9.25 inches (HxWxD), making it suitable for on-wall, free-standing or flush-mounted applications. The system has a built-in tri-amplifier unit, delivering a total of 420 watts into two 8-inch long-throw bass drivers, a 5.12-inch proprietary Genelec midrange driver and a 1-inch metal dome tweeter.

The 1038CF uses Genelec’s advanced Directivity Controlled Waveguide technology, which provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance, even in difficult acoustic environments. Versatile crossover controls allow for precise matching of the speaker system to different acoustic conditions. The system can be used in both vertical and horizontal orientation by simply rotating the DCW unit.

All drivers are magnetically shielded as standard to minimize stray magnetic field. The system is capable of delivering sound pressure levels of up to 124dB maximum peak acoustic output per pair (measured with music audio) at a distance of 1 meter.

A rackmount adapter is available so that the amplifier unit can be positioned separately from the enclosure for flush- or on-wall mounting applications.
