Genelec Unveils New High-SPL Monitors



Genelec has announced the global launch of its 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 play-live monitoring in music production or EDM playback.

Housed in a compact, low diffraction enclosure with premium quality Finnish woodwork, the S360 features a further enhanced 10-inch high efficiency and minimal distortion woofer based on Genelec’s Master Series, and a completely integrated extended directivity control waveguide DCW, supporting its 1.7-inch titanium diaphragm compression tweeter. The result combines the neutrality for which Genelec is known, 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 meters.

The S360 offers the benefits of main monitor performance in a condensed form factor, including excellent on-axis characteristics and uncoloured 95-degree (h) to 75-degree (v) dispersion. The S360 enclosure offers versatile 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 innovative Iso-Plate effectively decouples the monitor from its base, focusing low frequency output while preventing vibration transfer and air turbulence. Further flexibility comes courtesy of the system electronics, which can be either integrated into the enclosure or positioned remotely.

Knowing that the production of good content depends on monitors being correctly positioned, level-aligned, time-aligned and room-compensated, 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 ideal companion for both the S360 and Genelec’s other large format monitors is the 7382 – Genelec’s most powerful subwoofer to date. Delivering precise, powerful low frequency extension down to 15 Hz, the 7382 houses three custom-designed 15-inch long throw woofers. Each benefit from the vibration-free environment of a heavily braced fiberboard enclosure, with laminar flow bass reflex porting extending along the entire rear wall to ensure low distortion and compression-free performance, even when the 7382 delivers outputs in excess of 130 dB SPL.

“With the launch of the S360 and 7382, we now have a comprehensive range of monitors and subwoofers for all room sizes, SPL requirements and listening distances,” commented Genelec Managing Director, Siamäk Naghian.

“Besides their compatibility with all types of high-SPL music applications, we see the S360 and 7382 finding their place in larger Immersive Audio systems, where the listener by definition needs to find themselves utterly immersed in the experience, aware of every detail. That same precision is at the heart of every Genelec monitor. It is why we believe so deeply in the growth of these exciting new multichannel formats, and why we have produced the S360 and 7382: to realize that immersive potential like never before.”
