The 1238A Tri-Amplified SAM Monitor System with RAM-L Amplifier from Genelec is a 3-way monitoring system for medium-sized control rooms. It can be used as a free standing monitor, or flush-mounted in control room walls. This unit is suitable for recording, film and video post-production, broadcast monitoring, and mastering. The Directivity Control Waveguide (DCW) technology is designed to provide stereo imaging and neutral frequency response in various acoustics. The 6.6' program material listening distance and low distortion amplifiers allows for a 124 dB peak sound level. The 1238A monitor is fully compatible with the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager GLM and the proprietary Genelec control network (sold separately). It can be used with 8200-series SAM monitors and 7200-series SAM subwoofers in the same network.

The 1238A monitor reproduces low frequencies with a 15" woofer in a 110 liter base reflex enclosure. It uses the 5" direct radiating mid-range driver and a 1" metal dome tweeter, both acoustically loaded by the DCW. All drivers are magnetically shielded. The 1238A uses the RAM-L amplifier unit which is mounted with vibration absorbs in the rear of the monitor enclosure, and can also be detached and mounted into a 19" rack.
