Styled in a black finish, the Genelec 8361A is a point-source monitor for pro-audio applications in nearfield or midfield settings. It features a coaxial design, which houses its midrange driver, treble tweeter, and dual 10.6” woofers in one location, thereby aligning their acoustical axes and ensuring an accurate point of sonic radiation. The monitor can accept both analog and digital AES/EBU signals from separate XLR jacks, using Intelligent Signal Sensing technology (ISS) to detect automatically what kind of audio is being fed into the monitor. This monitor provides a frequency response of 36 Hz to 20 kHz (±1.5 dB), at a maximum SPL of 124 dB at 0.5m, or 118 dB at 1m.
To coordinate multiple 8361As, you can make use of Genelec’s GLM software to tune your monitor to your room, facilitate and coordinate daisy-chaining monitors, override the ISS function, and more. Routing is accomplished by means of a few Cat5 cables and a GLM adapter, which is available separately. An XLR output jack is also on hand for sending identical copies of incoming AES/EBU signals to other monitors.
DIP switches and a rotary control for level are offered on the rear of the monitor for offline use. Use these switches to tune the monitors to your room without DSP, should you so choose. An Iso-Pod stand is included to facilitate isolation from aurally deleterious surfaces. Other assets, such as the 8361As acoustically concealed woofers, minimum diffraction coaxial construction, and a proprietary waveguide, are further expounded upon in the features section.
