Genelec is a Finnish manufacturer known for producing high-quality active loudspeakers and audio monitoring systems. The company was founded in 1978 and has since gained a reputation for its commitment to accuracy, reliability, and innovation in audio technology.
Genelec’s product range includes a wide variety of active studio monitors and loudspeakers designed for various audio applications, including music production, post-production, broadcasting, home studios, and commercial installations.
One of the key features of Genelec’s loudspeakers is their active design. Unlike traditional passive speakers that require external amplifiers, Genelec’s speakers have built-in amplification for each driver, ensuring optimal matching between the amplifier and drivers.
This active design allows for better control over the speaker’s performance and enhances overall sound quality.
Genelec is also well-known for its proprietary technologies, including the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) and Smart Active Monitoring (SAM) systems. The DCW technology improves directivity and dispersion characteristics, leading to better off-axis response and reduced room reflections. The SAM system enables advanced room calibration and
optimization through digital signal processing (DSP), ensuring accurate and consistent audio performance in different environments.
The company’s focus on sustainability and eco-friendly practices is reflected in its commitment to reducing energy consumption and minimizing the environmental impact of its products.
Genelec’s active studio monitors are highly regarded in the professional audio industry and are widely used in recording studios, broadcast facilities, and post-production houses worldwide. Their reputation for accuracy and transparency has also made them popular choices among audiophiles and home studio enthusiasts seeking precision audio monitoring.
