1238CF Tri-amplified SAM Monitor System

Genelec 1238CF Smart Active Monitor (SAM™) is a tri-amplified system designed to be used with a complementary subwoofer.

The 1238CF is based on the successful 1038CF electro-acoustic design, combined with Genelec state of the art AutoCal™ and Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) control network technologies. GLM allows to automatically align every monitor on the network in terms of level, timing, and equalisation of room response anomalies. Typically flush mounted, the 1238CF includes a large Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW ™), drivers, enclosure, multiple power amplifiers, active low signal level crossovers, precise room response controls and protection circuitry.
The 1238CF is perfect for music recording studios, film and video post-productions, broadcast facilities and mastering suites.
