Genelec Expands “The Ones” Family Of Audio Monitors

Genelec has expanded “The Ones” series of Ultimate Point Source Monitors for a much wider range of room sizes, listening distances and SPL requirements. 

Genelec said the announcement of the new 8351B and 8361A coaxial three-way monitors alongside the complementary W371A Adaptive Woofer System means that The Ones family now delivers reference monitoring from ultra-nearfield through to mastering-caliber and main monitor applications.

The Ones range was launched in 2014 with the introduction of the 8351A. In 2017, the 8351A was joined by the 8331A and 8341A models, creating a trio of compact nearfield monitors.

Now the new 8361A three-way coaxial monitor refines the point source concept further, offering high dynamic range, excellent directivity and imaging and a short-term SPL of 118 dB with peak levels even higher. The largest coaxial monitor in The Ones family, the 8361A will deliver a monitoring experience at any listening distance up to five meters, making it perfect for small- to medium-sized rooms.

The 8361A features two Acoustically Concealed Woofers. These generate high SPL output with low distortion. MDC coaxial midrange and tweeter drivers provide smooth directivity, low distortion, high SPL and extended frequency response up to 40 kHz.

The 8351B improves on performance by offering increased SPL, additional room compensation EQs, equalized delay and enhanced HF response.

The W371A Adaptive Woofer System was designed to complement the 8341, 8351 and 8361 monitors. Standing at 43.25 inches high and featuring dual high-performance woofers (one forward-facing and one rear-facing), the W371A allows rooms to be custom-tailored. As a result, the W371A offers superior performance compared to standard free-standing loudspeakers or supporting subwoofers, since it offers a flatter and smoother in-room frequency response with more coherent low frequency imaging.
