Genelec W371A SAM Subwoofer System (Each)
Full-range, free-standing subwoofer comprised of both a 14" woofer in closed box system and 12" woofer in a bass reflex ported system. W371A is designed to enable extended listening distance, higher maximum SPL and more headroom in conjunction with the 8341, 8351 or 8361.
The Genelec W371A subwoofer system seamlessly complements Genelec's 8341, 8351 and 8361 models to creates a series of full-range monitoring solutions with unrivaled neutrality and supreme control of directivity and the effects of room acoustics. Experience all the benefits of a main monitor, but with the freedom to locate this free-standing system in optimal positions within your control room; even providing the option to switch between nearfield and main monitors without image-shifting.
The W371A tailors system performance carefully to the room, offering flatter, smoother in-room response with more coherent LF imaging. Three different operating modes allow a choice of flat and neutral LF response avoiding ‘acoustic notching’, continued directivity of the main monitor down to the lowest LF frequencies, or reduction of detrimental reflections by the walls, ceiling or floor of your room. The W371A then uses GLM software to select and optimize the signal processing for the best LF radiation mode, taking into account both the monitor location and listening position.

Genelec SAM™ Series
Designed to adapt, Genelec’s Smart Active Monitor (SAM™) Compact
range draws on a suite of technologies to make the most of all modern
As studio space becomes limited and listening areas more confined, so
recordings are taking place in a wider variety of locations, many with
minimal acoustic treatment. The Smart monitors and Smart subwoofers of
the Compact Series are designed to adapt and assist. SAM Systems can be controlled via Genelec proprietary Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) network and software, enabling you to build a highly flexible and reliable monitoring system.
The GLM 3 software is a highly intuitive and powerful monitor control networking system that manages connectivity to all SAM studio monitors and subwoofers on the network – up to 30. The GLM 3 software features adjustment of levels, distance delays and flexible room response compensation equalization with the state-of-the-art and robust AutoCal™ automated calibration system. All parameters and settings are stored in system setup files or saved in each individual monitor or subwoofer if the GLM network needs to be disconnected.
Also, all acoustical features of SAM Systems can be optimised for different working styles or client demands. Additionally, even if the monitors or the production projects move between rooms, you can expect SAM technology to achieve the highest consistency in monitoring, providing a neutral sound stage imaging with low distortion.
Genelec SAM Systems offers a comprehensive, solution-oriented, intelligently networked product range supporting analogue and digital signals in virtually any working environment.
