Genelec 1038CF – No Longer Available

Magnetically-shielded tri-amped monitor - 2 x 8" woofer, 5" mid driver, 1" tweeter
MFR# 1038CF

Product Description

The new Genelec 1038CF is a three-way active monitoring system including loudspeaker drivers, slim speaker enclosure, multiple power amplifiers and active, low signal level crossovers. Designed for medium sized control rooms this system is ideal for music recording studios, project studios, film and video post-production and broadcast monitoring. The 1038CF is designed to perform well as a free-standing monitor, on-wall or flush mounted into the control room wall. The system should be ideally used in combination with a subwoofer for either stereo or multichannel applications. The unique Directivity Control Waveguide ™ (DCW ™) Technology used provides excellent stereo imaging and frequency balance even in difficult acoustic environments. Versatile crossover controls allow for precise matching of the speaker system to different acoustic conditions. The system can be used both in vertical and horizontal orientation by simply rotating the DCW unit. The system is very easy to use as only mains power and input signal are needed. All drivers are magnetically shielded as standard to minimize stray magnetic field. A rack mount adapter is available so that the amplifier unit can be positioned separately from the enclosure for flush- or on-wall mounting applications. This allows for better & easier amplifier cooling and easier access to the Tone Control DIP switches during in-room system calibration.Genelec DCW™ Technology
The revolutionary Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) technology greatly improves the performance of a direct radiating multi-way loudspeaker.

The DCW™ waveguide is designed to match the frequency response and directivity characteristics of the drivers in the loudspeaker. This results in an excellent flatness of the overall frequency response for on and off-axis listening positions.

The improved directivity control reduces the reflected sound energy at the listening position. This improves the stereo and sound stage imaging and ensures very small sensitivity to varying control room acoustics, actually much smaller sensitivity than with any conventional direct radiator design.

The DCW™ technology also improves the drive unit sensitivity even up to +6 dB, and therefore increases the maximum sound pressure level as well as decreases drivers and system distortion.

DCW™ Technology key features:
  • Flat on and off-axis response for wider usable listening area
  • Increased direct-to-reflected sound ratio for reduced control room coloration
  • Improved stereo and sound stage imaging
  • Increased driver efficiency
  • Increased system Sound Pressure Level capacity
  • Decreased drive unit distortion
  • Reduced cabinet edge diffract

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
