Detailed Information

Featuring some of Genelec’s most advanced technology, 8361A are more than capable enough for any midfield monitoring needs. These 3-way studio monitors combine dual 10″ woofers with a 5″ midrange speaker and a 1″ high-frequency dome tweeter. Thanks to its ACW (Acoustically Concealed Woofer) design, the 8361A offers the kind of broad sweet spot engineers here at Sweetwater look for, while Genelec’s unique DCW (Directivity Control Waveguide) delivers precision stereo imaging. On top of all of this, you also get the benefits of Genelec’s SAM (Smart Active Monitor) technology, which lets you automatically calibrate your 8361A studio monitors to any control room or speaker configuration.

Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) provide superior imaging

The 8361A’s dual 10″ woofers employ Genelec’s innovative Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) to extend their coaxial acoustical radiation concept to bass frequencies. Hidden inside the monitor’s cabinet, these woofers use the entire front baffle as a giant Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) to control directivity over a very wide bandwidth, creating a massive sweet spot. It also provides phenomenal separation from the 8361A’s Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) driver, which reproduces midrange and high frequencies. The result is incredibly accurate monitoring with unparalleled frequency separation, a wide dispersion pattern, and unbelievable imaging.

Smart Active Monitor (SAM) provides remarkably accurate monitoring

These days, it’s not unusual for an engineer to work in a small, less-than-perfect acoustical environment. Genelec’s Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology takes this into account by allowing the 8361A to automatically calibrate its level, timing, and equalization to your room, ensuring that you hear the original nuances of your source accurately, without color or distortion. By using the highly-intuitive Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM) software, you can control an entire network of 8361As, giving you a highly-flexible computer-controlled system of monitors and subwoofers.

Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound

The 8361A features Genelec’s Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8361A to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.
