Genelec 7380A Smart Active Subwoofer The new flagship of the Smart Active Monitoring subwoofer range, Genelec’s 7380A Smart Active Subwoofer promises both high SPL and an extended low-distortion LF response in an compact enclosure.

The 7380A can be integrated into any monitoring system, from stereo to multi-channel, as well as part of a large-scale 3D Immersive set-up in music, post, film and broadcast. Equipped with a newly designed class-D amplifier section plus Smart Active Monitoring (SAM) technology, the 7380A partners Genelec’s The Ones series of coaxial three-way monitors, particularly in the creation of immersive systems for use 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 7380A features an 800W class-D amplifier driving a custom 15-inch long-throw woofer that, combined with Genelec’s LSE spiral enclosure, produces a remarkable maximum SPL of 119dB (123dB peak) plus precise low-frequency response down to 16Hz.

The incorporation of Smart Active Monitoring technology puts the 7380A 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 users benefit from extensive room compensation features including an adjustable crossover frequency and 20 parametric notch filters, ensuring that the 7380A 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 7380A may also be used in a non-Smart Active Monitoring environment; DIP switches on the front panel facilitate use of 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 working with multichannel audio, the 7380A 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 optional 9301 Digital Interface.

‘We have spent more than ten years refining our Smart Active Monitoring range to represent not just the world’s most advanced monitoring technology, but also a uniquely powerful family of products that is trusted and relied upon by professionals the world over. The 7380A continues that tradition of extraordinary innovation,’ commented Genelec Managing Director, Siamäk Naghian. ‘Simply put, the 7380A will go louder and lower than anyone would expect with an enclosure of this size. It is the ideal choice for anyone who demands powerful, dependable LF reproduction in a truly compact form factor.’
