GENELEC INTRODUCES 1038CF TRI-AMPLIFIED MONITORING SYSTEM
— Slim speaker enclosure perfect for medium-sized control rooms,
film and video postproduction, broadcast monitoring and project studios
NATICK, MA, April 30, 2009 — Genelec,
the world’s longstanding leader in active monitoring, is proud
to introduce the new 1038CF Tri-Amplified Active Monitoring System.
It features loudspeaker drivers, slim speaker enclosure (only 9.25"/235
mm), dual eight-inch long throw bass drivers, multiple power amplifiers
and active, low level crossovers. Designed for medium-sized control
rooms, this system is ideal for music recording studios, project studios,
film and video postproduction and broadcast monitoring.
The 1038CF is based on the highly acclaimed full-range
Genelec 1038B 3-Way Monitoring System and developed as a response to
market feedback and customer requests for the same Mid/High performance
in a compact package. The Genelec 1038B model, the basis for the new
1038CF, is an impressive full-range monitor with great low-end response;
it has been consistently praised for its even dispersion characteristics
in the Mid/High spectrum. However, today’s audio production rooms
are often small, and most multichannel environments use a subwoofer
combined with bass management to handle most of the LF content as well
as the LFE channel signal, settings in which use of the larger 1038B
would not be optimal. Genelec has engineered the new 1038CF specifically
with these needs in mind.
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 in combination with a subwoofer in either stereo
or multichannel applications. The 1038CF’s very compact, sealed
enclosure measures a mere 24.02" (610 mm) H x 18.5" (470 mm)
W x 9.25" (235 mm) D, making it highly 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 (210-mm) long-throw
bass drivers, a 5.12" (130-mm) proprietary Genelec midrange driver
and a one-inch (25-mm) metal dome tweeter.
The 1038CF uses Genelec’s advanced Directivity Controlled
Waveguide™ (DCW™) 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.
The system is very easy to use, as only mains power and
input signal are needed. All drivers are magnetically shielded as standard
to minimize stray magnetic field. The system is capable of delivering
sound pressure levels of up to 124 dB maximum peak acoustic output per
pair (measured with music audio), at a distance of 39.37" (one
A rack-mount adapter is available, so that the amplifier
unit can be positioned separately from the enclosure for flush- or on-wall
mounting applications, allowing for better and easier amplifier cooling
and easier access to the Tone Control DIP switches during in-room system

Genelec, the pioneer in Active Monitoring technology,
is celebrating over 30 years of designing and manufacturing active loudspeakers
for true and accurate sound reproduction. Genelec is credited with promoting
the concept of active transducer technology, which many manufacturers
are just now incorporating into their products. Since its inception
in 1978, Genelec has concentrated its efforts and resources into creating
active monitors with unparalleled sonic integrity. The result is an
active speaker system that has earned global acclaim for its accurate
imaging, extremely high acoustic output from small enclosures, true
high-fidelity with low distortion, and deep, rich bass.
