A Revolutionary 3-way Monitor

The Genelec 8351A is a revolutionary 3-way studio monitor. By combining Acoustically Concealed Woofer (ACW) technology with their other innovative technologies, the 8351A is able to control its directivity over a remarkably wide bandwidth, resulting in phenomenal imaging and frequency separation. At Sweetwater, we're impressed by Genelec's Smart Active Monitor (SAM) technology, which optimizes level, timing, and equalization of room response anomalies. The result is an amazingly tight, accurate sound with enormous dynamic range and unprecedented frequency response, regardless of where you choose to work. On top of that, these monitors perform optimally in both horizontal and vertical positions. You can't go wrong with a set of Genelec 8351A 3-way studio monitors!

Genelec 8351A Active 3-way Studio Monitor at a Glance:
  • Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) provides superior imaging
  • Smart Active Monitor (SAM) provides remarkably accurate monitoring
  • Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound
Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) provides superior imaging

The 8351A's dual 8.5" x 4" 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 8351A'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 8351A 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 8351A, giving you a highly-flexible computer-controlled system of monitors and subwoofers.

Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound

The 8351A features Genelec's Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) with rounded edges and a gently curved front and sides. This allows the 8351A to achieve a very smooth frequency response and superb imaging qualities with minimized cabinet edge diffraction.

Genelec 8351A Active 3-way Studio Monitor Features:
  • Smart Active Monitor (SAM) provides remarkably accurate monitoring
  • Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) delivers focused nearfield sound
  • Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC) driver provides superior imaging
  • Maximised Directivity Control Waveguide (MaxDCW) enhances dimensional imaging
  • Dual Acoustically Concealed Woofers (ACW) extend directivity control to bass frequencies
  • Optimum performance in both horizontal and vertical position
The Genelec 8351A is a compact, powerful, and efficient 3-way studio monitor!

Amazing!

These are by far the most amazing monitors I've ever heard. Extreme full range, super wide sweet spot horizontal and vertical. Imaging is awesome thanks to the coaxial design. I can't say enough good things about these, my pursuit of the perfect monitors is over.

Perfection

Nothing more accurate ... With the additional benefit of zero ear fatigue due to perfect imaging. Bottom line, what you mix on these is what you get out "there". And nothing really compares. I had Focal solo 6's and they just could not cut it. I have a well treated room with a lot of gear in a small space. Though uneven on each side. But with the 8351a's it's like I have a million dollar engineered room. We also set up multiple listening positions with the software. Can't imagine other monitors doing this good a job, and my mixes are just a lot more accurate as to what I'm hearing and that result carries on all the platforms. Yes they're really expensive! They save me loads of time. Mixing and mastering time cut in half with very little need for revision. Brings the fun back into the process. What's that worth?
