Genelec Unveils New High-SPL Monitors

Genelec has debuted two new high- SPL SAM monitors – the two-way S360, and the 7382 subwoofer. Both models are ideal for any professional application that demands high acoustic power or listening at a distance; from large immersive setups in post-production studios or film mixing stages to live monitoring in music production or EDM playback.

The Genelec S360 features a further enhanced 10-inch high efficiency and minimal distortion woofer based on the company’s Master Series, and a completely integrated extended directivity control waveguide (DCW), supporting its 1.7-inch titanium diaphragm compression tweeter, housed in a compact, low diffraction enclosure with premium quality Finnish woodwork.

The result combines the neutrality with a short-term SPL capability of 118 dB — with peaks even higher — and a long throw capability that can provide reference quality accuracy even at listening distances of over 10 metres (33 feet). The S360 offers the benefits of main monitor performance in a condensed form factor, including excellent on-axis characteristics and uncoloured 95-degree (horizontal) to 75-degree (vertical) dispersion.

The S360 enclosure offers in-wall and on-wall mounting options, while down-firing, flow optimized Laminar Integrated reflex Ports (LIP) ensure tight and noise-free bass output and are also perfectly suited for use with perforated screens. Alternatively, when the S360 is used in free-standing mode the Iso-Plate effectively decouples the monitor from its base, focusing low frequency output while preventing vibration transfer and air turbulence. The system electronics can be either integrated into the enclosure or positioned remotely.

The S360 offers full integration with Genelec’s GLM software, allowing the configuration, calibration and monitor control of more than 40 channels without the need for external processing.

The Genelec s360 two-way loudspeaker can reproduce a high SPL for application like film rerecording and dubbing stages.

The ideal companion for both the S360and Genelec’s other large format monitorsis the 7382 – the company’s most powerful subwoofer to date. Delivering precise, powerful low frequency extension down to 15Hz, the 7382 houses three custom-designed 15-inchlong throw woofers. Each benefits from the vibration-freeenvironment of a heavily braced fibreboard enclosure, with laminar flow bass reflex porting extending along the entire rear wall to ensure low distortionand compression-free performance,evenwhen the7382 delivers outputsin excess of130 dB SPL.

Drawing on integrated processing and decades of research, the 7382 also works with GLM software to control bass management, solving issues of subwoofer placement in unpredictable rooms,  or even to build entire arrays of subwoofers.

The arrival of the S360 and 7382 coincides with the publication of a new set of educational tools aimed at helping professionals to better understand and make use of Immersive Audio. Titled Genelec Immersive Solutions, the publication will include a comprehensive overview of the requirements for creating an effective immersive audio set-up, including insights into the most commonly adopted formats and the Genelec solutions required to make the most of them.
