Genelec has introduced the 7380 Smart Active Subwoofer, the new flagship of the Smart Active Monitoring subwoofer range.

Genelec 7380 Smart Active SubwooferEquipped with a newly-designed class-D amplifier section and Smart Active Monitoring technology, the 7380 is aimed at applications in music recording, postproduction, film and broadcast. Claiming a level of performance normally associated with much larger enclosures, it can be integrated into any monitoring system from stereo to multichannel, as well as part of a large-scale 3D immersive set-up. The loudspeaker can also be used with Genelec’s The Ones series of coaxial three-way monitors, particularly in the creation of immersive systems for those working with Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X formats.

Standing 26.97-inch (685mm) in height with a width of 28.27-inch (718mm) and depth of 19.37-inch (492mm), the 7380 features an 800W class-D amplifier driving a custom 15-inch long-throw woofer that, combined with Genelec’s LSE spiral enclosure, produces an SPL of 119dB (123dB peak) and low-frequency response down to 16Hz.

The incorporation of Genelec’s Smart Active Monitoring technology puts the 7380 at the heart of a larger family of smart monitors and subwoofers from across the Genelec range. With GLM software for PC or Mac, up to 40 Smart Active Monitors and subwoofers can be networked with instantly recallable system configurations and advanced auto-calibration features including level, time-of-flight and phase adjustments. GLM offers extensive room compensation features including an adjustable crossover frequency and 20 parametric notch filters, ensuring that the 7380 can be optimised to achieve the best possible performance even in challenging acoustic environments. Crucially, GLM also supports both centralised and distributed bass management modes, depending on the type of monitors being used.

The 7380 can also be used in non-Smart Active Monitoring environments. A full complement of DIP switches on the front panel provide a full-featured standalone mode, including calibration for hybrid systems in which traditional main monitors are used. In standalone mode, the crossover frequency is fixed at 85Hz. For multichannel audio, the 7380 offers 7.1-channel XLR analogue inputs and outputs, while an AES/EBU digital connection can be used either for stereo operation or for full 7.1 digital with the addition of Genelec’s 9301 Digital Interface.
