As unusually good-looking as it is sonically imposing, the 8351A Smart Active Monitor (SAM) makes good use of Genelec’s Acoustically Concealed Woofer (ACW) technology combined with the Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) driver and Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™) to produce extremely controlled directivity over a very wide bandwidth. Every element of this monitor is sculpted to polish your listening experience. Maxing out at 111 dB, the 8351A has a 32Hz – 35kHz (-6dB) frequency response. Its two oval 8 ½ x 4” woofers and coaxial 5” midrange and ¾” tweeter are 150W, 120W and 90W respectively and the monitor weighs 19kg. The monitor’s performance also remains identical in both vertical and horizontal orientations, ensuring true accuracy.

Genelec’s 8351A is made to adjust to and capitalise on any aspect of a modern acoustic setting, courtesy of a suite of augmented technologies.

As studio space increasingly becomes more confined and listening areas limited, so recordings are taking place in a broader array of locations – a great deal of which with negligible acoustic treatment. The Smart monitors and Smart subwoofers of the Compact Series are built to adapt and assist.

The 8351A SAM utilises cutting-edge AutoCal technology to create an optimised and regulated monitoring environment, and are controlled by the proprietary Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) 2.0 software. Monitoring set-ups stretching from basic stereo to immersive audio can be consistently executed, after automatically calibrating and compensating for deficiencies in the listening environment.
