They also feature Genelec’s Iso-Pod stands, and there is a range of mounting options available. The 8340A speakers are part of the SAM rage - Smart Active Monitors. When coupled with the GLM software, the 8340A SAM speakers can be precisely tuned to acoustically match the space they are in.

The Genelec 8340A has quickly established itself as the trusted monitoring choice of facilities worldwide. Boasting a 6 1/2 inch woofer plus Genelec’s most efficient Class-D amplification to date, the two-way, Class D bi-amplified monitor represents a finely balanced union of acoustic expertise and SAM™ innovation.

At the heart of the system is an acoustic design shaped by decades of innovation and expertise. Capable of supporting extremely high sound pressure levels, the 8340A features a reflex port design for low-frequency enhancement, plus the color-free accuracy of the Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE™), and on- and off-axis precision thanks to the Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW™). All this is coupled with the versatility of SAM. Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) 2.0 software allows for the fine adjustment of all monitor settings, while AutoCal™ compensates for detrimental room influences to perfectly calibrate your set-up for your listening environment, no matter if you work in simple stereo or ambitious immersive audio.

The result is the most advanced adaptable monitoring solution available, ideal for all applications including recording studios, post-production houses, digital edit suites, radio, TV, and outside broadcasting.
